    Does anyone else find it humorously paradoxical that a living shadow is capable of beaming?

  4. Kayru says:

    Better hope Murai’s not around… looks like the darkness is shining. =3

  5. Adreth says:

    Darkness shines?

    it’s a beam of darkness!!!

  8. Eagle0600 says:

    Why? Why is stopping the Hyenas from eating a good thing? They have to eat. If not you, then some other poor soul. In the end, all you do by saving yourself is damn another.

    I was thinking almost those exact words! πŸ˜‰

    @Eagle0600: It’s not stopping the Hyenas from eating in general that Digger praised; it was stopping them from eating Digger specifically – a thinking, talking creature – that she was praising.
    There’s no doubt that self-interest plays at least a small part in Digger’s thought processes. IMHO, that can be generalized to say that self-interest ALWAYS plays at least a small part in morality – otherwise, it wouldn’t work.

    I think I’ll just set that philosophical grenade down there and walk away briskly …

    Loves the beaming

  11. Mark Antony says:

    @TekServer Make sure you double-check your numbers when you set that thing. πŸ˜‰

  12. Jenora Feuer says:

    Well, yes, so much of morality is based on enlightened self-interest, when you get right down to it.

    The enlightened part comes in when you realize that a smoothly-running society tends to make things better for all its members, even if it places a few requirements on its members as well. It’s easier to get forward when the people around you are less likely to stab you in the back…

    “Beams of darkness streak across the sky, signals from the ancient satellite.”

    dammit, now i”m going to have Clutch songs stuck in my head all day.

  14. Trogdog says:

    Lol. decided to YT clutch on a whim, and hit that song first try. It’s um, interesting. Kinda Queens of the Stone age meets Rage against the machine as a southern metal bar band. not really to my taste, but cool anyway.

  15. Murasaki says:

    “Truth is like morality. There is no fact, only interpretation.”
    All in all, I rather like diggers intrepretation of morality.

    And I LOVE the beaming Shadowchild.

    @Tekserver You can’t just leave that sort of stuff lying around. At least gives us a warning cry. Maybve something along the lines of ” Philosopher in the hole”

  18. BunnyRock says:

    @werepixi: I love the possibilities of a “philosopher in the hole”.

    “What’s that werepixi? A 17th century French philosopher was leading his pack-pony along and he’s fallen down the old well? And his pony fell down on top of him and crushed him? Well ‘Pix, that’s what you get for putting Descartes before the horse.”

  19. Lord the 22nd says:

    Does anyone else think that Shadowchild looks like it was drawn by Dr. Sues in that last panel?

  20. MojoQuestor says:

    @Lord the 22nd: Now that you mention it…

  21. Ellemerr says:

    It’s official: “To shadowbeam” is now an acceptable part of the vocabulary, and it’s -adorable-.

    And this should be the companion poster to the previous page.
