out of all the people there I think daisy is the only one with her priorities straight. With cypher as a close second.
You know what? It would be funny if Jason was just enjoying himself and that window that Cypher noticed was just a matter of chance that Jason was on the other side of it.
Well at least one of them is armed. Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised that Daisy’s kids and Meridian are armed too.
At least she has her priorities right! ^_^
I would like to point out (even if it’s a little bit late) that throwing knives as a primary weapon are a rather poor choice. You would want something that is NOT gone or in your enemys hand after only a single strike.
@DemonBlood: True – but remember the rule of cool! All but the most pedantic of viewers will forgive liberties with reality as long as the result is wicked sweet or awesome.
@LavaBat: I can forgive it, but as a martial arts and weapons nerd it still makes me go: “Why the fuck WOULDN’T you use a gun/close combat weapon of some sort?”
(Throwing weapons are still a completly viable distraction/backup by the way.)
I feel Jigsaw’s pain here. Anytime my parents act as hypocrites it is fine and people will interrupt me just so there will never be closure and I am always wrong. . .
@LavaBat: Experience as an old Scout probably sets priorities like nothing else.
I would make a joke about being forewarned is being forearmed. But from the looks of things, Daisy simply wants to be armed at this point. XD
Urg… If Jason hates Old Scout Arael, then he’ll probably recognize that rosey knife. And if that sets him off again, Cypher’s panic might not be unfounded after all.
Or maybe now he’s more worried about the authorities recognizing his knife? 😯
(Cypher’s face in panel 1 is priceless!)
I can imagine Jason in a hate fueled rage of pain coming up with the worst, most racist insult imaginable: “I’m gonna Kill that kangaroo k*ke!!!” It’s fortunate that the “k” word has successfully been largely stricken from common language, but given the assonance of of the two “k” words, I could suddenly imagine such a phrase arising against marsupial Jews by a more creative bigot.
This has been an exploration of the evolution of words, good day.
@DemonBlood: Why wouldn’t they use a gun/close combat weapon of some sort? Well, they are in a prison space station and they are prisoners…
@LavaBat: To my knowledge neither of the pictured Talmi are classified as prisoners, also Daisy mentioned throwing knives being her main weapon as a scout, where she most likely had better supplies than in jail.
@Lavabat: There is also a certain difficulty bringing weapons onto the station. Guns need either chemical propellants or battery packs, and metal is easily detectable by many means. Basic scanners also make such smuggling difficult. An unpowered set of ceramic knives in a pouch, however, are entirely undetectable barring a physical search of the pouch, or x-rays. Neither of which you’d hit a traveler with on a vacation station (but most certainly something Daisy would have been subjected to, if she hadn’t been already during the interrogation).
You have NO IDEA how much I sympathize with ‘Saw right now.
Still, Daisy’s got the right idea here, though from the little bit of improvised combat stuff I know, I’ll say even the chopsticks have their use, though only really at melee range.
I wish I had some throwing knives too
@The_Rippy_One: True, guns are a no-go in this scenario, but I am pretty sure that these non-detectable knives could be made with actual grips instead of the stylized rose we have seen.
Honestly, just a single combat knife, in addition to the throwing knives, and he is equipped for both short and long distance.
And just as I submit the previous comment I realize that he possibly (likely even) has one or more proper knives on him, thus rendering most of my bitching absolutly pointless.
@Demonblood no worries we all get into that sooner or later. I don’t even remember half the tirades I went on the internet
Is Daisy more worried that she’s disarmed or that Cypher is? (more weapons for her or less in his hands?)
The whole planet?
