    Thats a lot of glitter… so, who wants to swim?

    Judging from the context that I can see, this “hospital” has a very efficient method of conducting triage. If you’re a problem, you will be cured of all issues that you ever had and you will be put to good use. I mean, put to work.

    You’ll never have to worry about your health again…

  3. Critter Rhode

    I know this will be bad.
    But I had a thought that this is where Twilight Vamps come from.

  4. Sulucamas

    @hariman: Ewwwwwwww!!! 😛

    So a hospital ship with blood on the doors means…massacre? Crazy doctors/mad scientists? Either way, “IT’S A TRAP.” My money’s on someone or something popping out of the pool and dragging one of the contestants in. 😈

    “SOYLENT GLITTER is PEOPLE!”

    …Sorry had to.

    I think someone has a very different definition of hospital, and not talking about Daisy.

  6. StupidN00bie

    @Lycanthrope Damn! You beat me to it!

    So nanotech can be used for things other than keeping you healthy?

  7. TomRedlion

    I would have at least put a lid on the thing.
    It’s surprising how few people drown in covered water reserviors.

  8. The_Rippy_One

    @StupidN00bie Yes. Method of ending a world 32: Grey Goo.

    More to the point there is nothing that, while originally intended to keep you healthy, will not kill you in large enough doses.

  9. hariman

    Sulacamas: Yeah, that’s the reaction I was going for.

    Even worse, it’s possible that this is a cult’s ship and the leader is convincing people to dive in willingly. Or it’s a mob ship and it’s for body disposal.

  10. Vulpis

    I’m wondering if maybe this pool is used for very large or *very* damaged patients..how ‘smart’ is this glitter stuff at body reconstruction, anyway?

    On the flip side…wonder if the stuff can go T-1000…

  11. Katmir

    A hospital!? A pool?! CANNONBAAALLL..!!

  12. Sulucamas

    A cult, you say? 😉

    I don’t know how Glitter works, exactly, but maybe you could absorb it rather than having it melt you. Perhaps that would make you uber powerful, Sephiroth-style. 8)

    This falls into the gategory of bad. Though I can think of a possible ending to this where [warning, potential spoilers, censors have been activated], of course that’s just me guessing now.

  14. Originaldrew

    I havn’t been on this web comic for so long and I wish a had since its so good. 🙂 p.s if this glitter is nanotech would we really be able to see it since germs and bacteria are the size of nano stuff and we can’t see them without a microscope

  15. StupidN00bie

    @Originaldrew
    True, but many liquids are made up of individual atoms that when taken together can make up a visible fluid, IE blood.

    Also, if this is un-purposed nanotech, even if you fell in, would it affect you because it does not have any instructions to execute?

  16. Vulpis

    Is it just me, or does the character in the bottom right left corner look a lot like Ki from General Protection Fault?

  17. Sulucamas

    One of Glitter’s main functions seems to be to patch holes, probably by linking together to form scaffolds for new cells. In the absence of instructions, it probably does this spontaneously. The little dots in the pool are probably little (read LARGE) clusters of nanites joining together until they realize there’s no wound to heal, then dissipating. If just a few of them can heal you, I could see a pool-full of them getting overzealous, sneaking into all the cracks in your skin, self-assembling, and tearing you apart. Just a though. 🙂

    @Sulacamas:

    Poorly programmed medical Glitter: “Heavens! There’s a gaping open wound on this ones face.”

    Patient: “Uh, that’s called a mouth… *mmmph!*”
    😉

  19. Originaldrew

    @StupidN00bie Ok thanks, point taken.

  20. YingA&YangY

    😀 I don’t know about you but I would send in the ‘vampires’ first! ….:K Don’t look at me that way! if this is Blood based, that means the vampire may either come out drunk with power….or just plain DRUNK!

  21. RyGuy

    Have you ever heard of “The Grey Goo Scenario”? It is the absolute worst case disaster involving nanotechnology. Nanites reproduce like a cancer, consuming everything within the local gravity well that is not too hot, (I.e., the planets entire surface to within a few meters of magma chambers and flows.), as they are unable to maintain molecular cohesion above a certain temperature. Nanites HAVE to be hardwired to have a limited life span, it is the only way to guarantee that they won’t mutate over several generations outside direct supercomputer supervision. My guess is this room does just that, but leaving it open like that is fool hearty in the extreme.
