HE BLEEDS RAINBOWS?! WTF! I hope Neko likes the taste of rainbow blood and probably so tight rubber tights that the flow of rainbow blood is low. WATCH OUT Mc. Jeffersteen!

Somehow I think I have higher motivations... That's the spirit Neko. You show that corporate sponsor who's boss...Then he'll let you nibble on his leg.

Ya know, that whole stay logged in feature doesn't work, and I hate loggin in so much

I applaud you following the family-friendly guidelines and not using blood but reverting to more happy themes with a beautiful rainbow. It is good to know that some peoe still care about the children Ф.Ф

Well, there are kids that read this. They shouldn't, but they do.

Note sure what's up with the login issue, that's a SmackJeeves thing rather than an NtK thing.

I personally like the rainbow blood, maybe C'lung empowered his blood with pure awesome?

@Oisin: I'm making the world a more magical place for all the little future sociopaths.

I am glad shows like the simpsons and famil guy were around to teach me about these things, I never would haveknown that shooting a person was so colorful

hmm... @Geckillin.
I can feel your pain. Why? I'm logged into Smackjeeves on three computers right now. I have books on cyber crime, and hacking... I haven't quite read all of them yet, but I look forward to storming the gates ninja style. (actually I'm kidding for the most part.Please do not take the joke the wrong way.)

@Gar in regards to your comment at Oisin
Yay! more fun for crazy people...
who no one really knows are crazy because they would then be psychopaths. To be fair, I don't genuinely know the distinction between sociopaths and psychopaths. Although I can identify narcissists fairly easily.

I'm surprised many of the windows don't have tint on them, or curtains for that matter. Still, you can't stage a good kidnapping scenario otherwise. And, we all know those kind of adventures almost always feature good sociopaths.

Whoops, forgot to do the glass effect for the windows! Oh well, part of our ongoing game of spot-the-continuity-error.

Without looking it up, I think a psychopath is someone who doesn't experience emotions. They're driven to extreme actions because it's the only way they can receive stimulus (Dexter is the most well-known example at the moment. Dexter from Dexter, not Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory).

A sociopath is someone who can't function in society and doesn't necessarily recognise the humanity of other people. They posess emotion, but lack empathy (let's go with Sidekick Man for our example here).

Looked up the difference on Google. I'm not sure if this is plagarism... The capacity to feel attachment and empathy towards another and to feel guilt and shame after doing something wrong is not associated with psychopathy; however it is suggested that sociopaths can emotionally attach to others, and feel badly when they hurt those individuals that they are attached to. The sociopath will still lack empathy and attachment toward the greater society and will not feel guilt in harming a stranger, or rebelling against laws, but does not lack empathy entirely, as is typical with the psychopath.

Therefore, both psychopaths and sociopaths are capable of committing heinous crimes; however, the psychopath would commit crimes against family members or “friends” (as well as strangers) and feel little to no remorse.

The last main difference between psychopathy and sociopathy is in the presentation. The psychopath is callous, yet charming. He or she will con and manipulate others with charisma and intimidation and can effectively mimic feelings to present as “normal” to society. The psychopath is organized in their criminal thinking and behavior, and can maintain good emotional and physical control, displaying little to no emotional or autonomic arousal, even under situations that most would find threatening or horrifying. The psychopath is keenly aware that what he or she is doing is wrong, but does not care.

Conversely, the sociopath is less organized in his or her demeanor; he or she might be nervous, easily agitated, and quick to display anger. A sociopath is more likely to spontaneously act out in inappropriate ways without thinking through the consequences. Compared to the psychopath, the sociopath will not be able to move through society committing callous crimes as easily, as they can form attachments and often have “normal temperaments.” The sociopath will lie, manipulate and hurt others, just as the psychopath would, but will often avoid doing so to the select few people they care about, and will likely feel guilty should they end up hurting someone they care about.

Just in case...

Am I correct in assuming there are 6 bummy?

Reply NtKGar, January 6th, 2012, 7:47 am

There's actually 7, point out the 6 you've spotted - maybe someone else has found the other one!

First Panel: In the dumpster (1) Fighting in the kitchen (2) Staring out the window at Tarquin (1)

Second Panel: On the bookshelf (1) in the storm drain/sewer grate (1)

Third Panel: Neko is a big enough ass. (although a f*cking adorable one!)

I KNEW Turpin looked like one of those hominid guy things!

Reply magic_beefy, December 5th, 2012, 12:03 pm

I noticed that Neko's shadow in the third panel continues into the second panel (right next to sidekickman's foot and i did double check, it ain't his foot's shadow)
