Yeah, that sounds dangerous to me too. she’s been 80K + years able to ignore what would be debilitating pain for humans or even instantly fatal injuries, and now she’s human level vulnerable, apparently.
That’s a recipe for sure-fire humor, or utter tragedy.
Or sure-fire utterly humorous tragedy 😉
She’s a sexy, female Pinocchio?
I’ve always thought so.
Don’t her people have long life spans? Or does she have a human life span?
No other golem has ever been seen to have any limited lifespan.
If you mean Lanthians, there has been no indication they were longer lived than any other humans of the period.
We don’t know how long Lanthians lived, normally. But keep in mind that Jin having been present when the Calendar Machine was turned on, she was immortal but still killable; as a golem she was REALLY immortal (as in, will outlast the Universe) and unkillable as far as we know. Now, all that’s apparently changed…
ROFL ROFL ROFL!!! 🙂
– But seriously, someone had better make sure she wont bleed to death????
but! she’s a golem, indestructable, but what happens when the blood runs out?
roll on friday…… 😛
My question is will Jin have much difficulty adjusting to having to protect her body from harm? People don’t always realize exactly how much caution goes into protecting yourself from minor injuries in everyday situations.
She realised how easily Alan could have died so I suspect she will be okay.
Wow Jin finally gets her greatest wish. Alan is in for the whirlwind when hurricane Jin tells him this. I just wonder how long it will be before she wants to buy a house and have him move in as she told him one night in her bedroom.
I wonder if she and Alan can have little golem-ettes.
That thought did occur to me too. Would the little buggers be able to ‘poit’?
I thought all the little buggers poited deposits into their diapers on a regular basis. At least for a couple of years or so.
Check out her teeth, guys!
Quick! Steal Tina’s cover story for her teeth!
nice catch I didnt notice
Mortality! The gift that eventually stops giving!
Life is a sexually transmitted, terminal condition.
Ok, Moose Breath earned a cookie with that one, lol.
Life is a journey… and the destination really, really sucks
Nah–that’s not a destination, just a way-station.
We’ve already seen some characters come back from death, haven’t we?
Take it easy Jin.
If you get too excited, you might kill yourself before you get to enjoy all the stubbed toes and paper cuts the rest of your life will provide.
Jin never struck me as a risk-taker; she was way to focused on her goal (fixing the Calendar Machine); after all, Bud blew up the island, not Jin.
(Bud: “How long before I can live that down!?”)
Heh, I meant getting killed on accident.
I’m more worried about the long term affects on Bud and Brandi. As wonderful and as sweet as they are, there’s always the possibility of a jealousy demon whispering in their ear.
And this could take us into “The Quest for my Relic!” for them. After all, it was seen to by the participants in this grand story to take care of Jin’s issue, so it could be that other issues have a pre-made solution. Or it could be that issues become new and unthought of before. I realize that none of this has to even go into this direction, but I like thinking about things.
There’s also the long term psychological effects. I don’t think they’ve ever stated it but the GGG probably realize they’ll outlive everyone and everything – Monica, the Earth and Sun, the Universe – but always have each other for better or worse. Before, that applied to all three of them; now, it only applies to Bud and Brandi (and probably Maya). That might cause problems…
I don’t know about their ultimate longevity, but yes. The three of them have been inseparable (literally, for millenia) since they were thrown into the temple pit where they died. Just the possibility of losing Jin should destabilize their relationship.
Of course, being immortal, they do have enough time to find a similar solution and join Jin in mortality.
The question then is one of getting the timing right so that nobody gets left alone for too many centuries.
awsome for jin getting her wish and all but im curius how this will effect bud and brandy. there conected in some way as peices of the chimera is the chimera gone forever or will a new 3rd simply be chosen to take jins place
One of the first things that occurred to me.
she IS still a golem so I suspect she is still part of the chimera.
Just not as powerful as she once was.
Why do they need a third member to take Jin’s place? It’s not like they will ever want to reform the chimera. Those days are behind them.
The chimera was aggressive and wanted to destroy the planet that is true.
But with the girls now having free will they could use the power to do great things – such as protecting the planet from an asteroid 🙂
Either Bud or Brandi could do that singlehandedly and still sip “refreshments” with May. Each has the power to flatten the sun.
Forgot that one.
Jin had more control over the Chimera than she thought really.
A dent in the planet really isn’t much damage considering when you remember how powerful they are 🙂
Forget the chimera…. Dont you think bud and brandi would like a lil normalcy in there lives as well. To feel something and possibly age. I mean being an indestructable 20 something for eons has to get boring at some point
Let me get back to you on that in a few eons.
She hit her shin.
Why is her finger bleeding?
May’s already proven to be a bit crazy (and potentially drunk while performing this operation). Noone said she set those parameters correctly (or, at the very least, logically).
Jin now functions like Jacqui’s apartment.
The shin and finger are unrelated, except insofar as they relate to her new condition.
Her finger’s bleeding because she has a hangnail.
And she yanked on it in fascination. Don’t ask me how I know this…
Blood? How does she have blood and still a golem? Is it real blood or blood lite? Does she have a circulatory system now? A heart and heartbeat? Any other organs? Details, we need details.
It’s all great now, but I give it a month of bumps, bruises, cuts, etc, and she’ll be looking back fondly at her prior invulnerability.
Heh Blood Lite.
The same as Blood but with 50% less platelets 😀
Lower in cholesterol. 😉
And high levels of aluminium silicate …
Nanobots already exist, they’re called enzymes.
So we’re all made of clay, running on nanobots that are optimized to repair that clay in a fashion that will eventually fail. When science figures all that out, we can apply the answer to Jin.
Much more importantly, she is only “sort of” human, but “still a golem”. Which means golem problems can still pertain. So while her head is much clearer, and most of the snowflakes seemed to have been swept away, the big question remains:
Is she still haunted by Crispy?
Alright!.. I called it!… i’ll take my Moxana points in small, unmarked points please.
the lifespan thing sucks though. but i’m really wondering just exactly HOW May knows this? she went from “ooh, shiny” to “oh yeah, she’s running under new parameters, of which is ability to feel pain, aging, and death, along with blah, blah, blah…” awfully quick, how in the world did she find out what these “new parameters” are? there’s nothing in-script to account for this sudden omniscience about an object she had no clue about until a few pages ago, the only thing i can think of is that she studied it off-screen in the intervening time because they aren’t wearing the same clothes they were wearing on the strip that Bud brings the relic over to show May for the first time…
Maybe because she created Golems she can see things about them that the others cannot.
Such as how Bud was able to see Tina?
Or she is just making it up as she goes along.
Or maybe it was a theory she had along time ago on the reversal of the golem.
Or all of the above 😀
I get the feeling May was just toying with Bud about the relic and knew it’s purpose from the moment she saw it.
If Jin And her Mom are anything like each other the teasing- bit is a given.
I believe Jin’s warped sense of humor comes from her mother’s side.
Sorry, wrong forum for “Moxanna Points”… (points about three forums over) Go look over with that bunch of Yahoos for that one.
Talk of Moxanna points are showing up on a lot of forums and websites for those who make correct predictions. Obviously the Foglios ARE insidiously taking over the world as they’ve joked, and whispered rumors have held… 🙂
How does May know this? Simple. She read the fine print disclaimer that goes with so many new treatments.
“Insertion of The Relic may cause nausea, vomiting, hypertension, muscle pains, hang nails, increased awareness of the sensations you experience, and death. Do not insert The Relic if you are pregnant or may become pregant without first consulting with your physician. Small children should not be treated with insertion of The Relic as side effects may include mood changes, recklessness, and inescapable mortality.” 😛
What about the little girl that was “infesting” Jin? Is she gonna turn into Jin’s version of CG?
Mebee a junior Scooby gang – uh, pair, duo, etc.
If Creepy and Crispy start dressing like Jason and Robin in girl form, though……heh, come to think of it, that’d be kinda cool.
I could not believe how Jin is so happy. 🙂 I’m so happy for her too, considering that prior to the calender finale, she had expressed eagerness that once the calender issue was resolved she’d be able to grow old and be “normal”.
She’ll never be forever young now.
I’m guessing “lifespan” has more to do with the fact she’s running on a battery.
My thought too. And considering that battery’s rested in Shellynx’s forest for more than 80,000 years already, Jin’s lifespan may still be FAR beyond that of our mortal members of the cast.
Oh. That’s a good point…
I’m not sure she’s running on the battery as such. The key/battery may have simply had enough power to reconfigure her … once.
“Oh, this is fantastic! I’ve got cramps! I can’t wait until I have a hangover!”
I’ll be curious to see how long it takes for the fascination with the hqiz events of mortality to wear off. In the meantime, it’s cute.
OMG! *THIS* must be why they call it “The Red Tide!”
She aint gonna be happy when she realizes that she needs to get some pads and stuff… Still though, glad she got what she wanted. But, the saying goes: “Be careful what you wish for.”
There go the all night sessions with Allen. 🙁
whaddya mean? it’s not like she can’t still have anerobic sex, she just can’t have anerobic sex when the universe is dead and gone…
What I’ve been noticing are the bags under May’s eyes – she’s been pushing herself a hellalot. What’s HER limit before she goes over the edge?
Methinks we’re in for a wild, wild ride.
… this is all May’s secret plan to have grandkids. Heck knows, my mother’s all over *me* to have kids, and I’m nowhere near 80,000 years old yet!
You only really have to worry if yo’ momma starts to give you Kokopelli-themed items for display around the house. He really loves his job as a fertility facilitator.
I can’t only imagine the horrors/hilarity awaiting Jin’s boyfriend when he shows up.
“Alan! Remember how we almost broke up over that knife ‘trick’ I did? Watch what happens when I do it now!”
… *plunge!* *spurt spurt spurt* …
“Oh! I get it. It really IS a trick this time. Good one for halloween … Jin?”
“Ooo the room is spinning …”
“Jin? JIN?!! Great! Now who do I call? 911 or a pottery maker?”
Fingers bleeding? Awesome.
As usual, it always comes down to Moleeds.
I don’t get why blood, injury and lifespan are good things. I hope they don’t do this to the rest of them……..
Seems more like a curse than a blessing.
You might feel a bit differently after being alive for a hundred thousand years or so and bored out of your mind after just the first couple of centuries.
Jennifer Fallon’s Tide Lords series has some elements of this theme. Of course, she sees the crisis coming after only about 8 or 10 thousand years or so–after that you find ways to cope with immortality.
Yeah, even 2,000 years can be unbearable.
Ok, looks like its time to call the professionals. You guys help me wrap up Jin in bubblewrap untill they arrieve and install the children-safe furniture and move anything that might damage a toddler into a safe high off-limits place.
Wow! Rating went from 54 yesterday to 39 now! Climb that ladder, people!
