I suppose if you accept the premise that your only choices are immortality in heaven or immortality in hell, then you’ll probably want to go to heaven even if you do believe that immortality would get totally boring after a while.
Still, interesting to see that Chrissy is such a glutton for pain and penance that the only thing about hell that she couldn’t bear would be Abby’s presence. I don’t know if that means she finds Abby enjoyable, or if Abby’s the one thing unpleasant enough to break her.
Spring of Drowned Mosquito would be pretty ridiculous even for Ranma.
But I suppose an adult mosquito could drown. They can sit on the water’s surface, but I bet they’d sink if you pushed them down in. (Which probably would mean that pouring water on her would kill her right after it turned her into a mosquito… so the idea’s still ridiculous.)
Most of my own theory-of-mind trouble isn’t that I assume people know things they couldn’t possibly know– it’s that I assume they know things that they could figure out if they thought about it as much as I do.
I’ve definitely had situations where it was unclear whose theory of mind was worse. Mostly with my husband. But I think that’s typical in male-female interactions. (Though I’m not as vague as a lot of wives and girlfriends. I’ve always been annoyed by women who give their men barely-detectable hints and expect them to understand.)
Oooh. In this comic, Abby uses a non-gender-specific word to describe Norma’s potential mate, and Norma makes a threat that, if carried out, would result in her seeing Abby naked every day. The Abby/Norma slash fans are going to go crazy with this one.
I’m kidding, of course. My comic is not famous enough to have slash fans. Maybe some day…
I’ve always been amused by the idea that once you’ve done something for money once, you’ve lost your amateur status and you are from then on a professional that-thing-doer. It almost makes me want to have sex with some stranger I meet in a bar, and then sneak out in the night and leave money on their dresser. “Ha ha, you’re a prostitute now and you can never ever stop being one!”
