    Is it me, or is Tycho's head is turning too much for a human being on the third panel?

    It's true, women love rasp action all up in they nipples.

    There's two things I know about women. They love it when you rasp their nips, and they love to be stroked on their open eyeballs.

    Are you suggesting I've been doing it wrong my entire life?

    I was stroking their nipples and rasping their open eyeballs.

    Honestly, nipple rasping and strange erection euphemisms don't seem that out of place with some of the shit that happens in the later Rama books.
    I mean, at one point, an elderly man is rejuvenated by a robot in the form of a fucking Judeo-Christian archangel so he can be with his twelve year old wife.

    Arthur C. Clarke got into some cat freezer level weird in those books. The last Space Odyssey book used a lady riding a dragon as the stepping off point for a three page rant about circumcision, and yet it had nothing on the later Rama books.

    You know...I love the different amount of phrases literary people use just to say simple stuff like "He had a boner."

    Rasping nipples is the next step after cauterizing the genitals.

    I thought rasping was what you called it when a rapper has a lisp.

    Just so you know, Clarke only wrote the first book, 'Rendezvous'. Rama II and beyond were actually written entirely by Gentry Lee. Clarke only read and made suggestions, although personally I don't think he read them nearly carefully enough. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendezvous_with_Rama
    I personally enjoyed the whole Rama series, but the later books did...inform me of several adult acts of which I was previously unaware. Regardless, I still love O'Neill cylinders.

    Turgid is far and away the most excellent word to use for terrible romance descriptions.

    Rasp those turgid nipples?

    What is this I don't even.

    "all the sudden"? Would that count as a Tychpo? I mean, "all of a sudden" is the common English phrase one would use in that place, correct?

    Or is this some regional "Mah car needs washed" type of horse hockey?

    A snail's radula can also be used for rasping:

    I mean, mmm, who wouldn't want a little of that action on your nipples?

    Is it just me, or is Tycho steadfastly refusing to refer to Gabe as either Gabe or Gabriel recently? It's certainly funny, it puts me in mind of when Gabe refused to draw Tycho as anything but a radish until some demand was met.

    Ugh, I was so let down by the later books. I wonder if Clarke even bothered to read the drafts. Lee took a taut, technical thrill about exploring a vast spaceship and tried to make it about character development. Which is ok, but he apparently sucks at it and gave all the characters cliche back stories while making a blatant mary sue in his protagonist.

    You know, poor choices like Fluency aside, I would love having some kind of regular 'Mike is currently reading...' update, because his tastes in books tend to align quite well with my own. Picked up some good books based on his past recommendations.

    I always find it weird that Gabe and Tycho (apparently) aren't mad Dresden Files fans. It has a wise-cracking, hilarious protagonist who is a complete and total geek while being a BAMF for Gabe. For Tycho, it has a dark, dark world where as much as 1% of humanity is devoured annually by the supernatural predators that lurk in the shadows, where dark elder gods who dwell Outside are ceaselessly working to breach the Outer Gates, where the simple act of picking a coin up off the street could lead to your transformation into a horrific demonic engine of death and destruction.
