Reply pjunk on November 30, 2011 at 12:06 am I probably laughed harder than I should have at clairvoyant racists. This is brilliant, lol Reply Jeff on November 30, 2011 at 1:24 am Evil niece bug is back! Awww, I’m so happy being thrown through a ceiling fan and then a wall didn’t hurt her too bad! And she’s a Pyrokinetic Butthole to boot! Yay! Reply williamkattwilliams on November 30, 2011 at 3:06 am But it does beg the question why she needs an uzi when ruining people’s popcorn is so much more satisfying. Bug flipped upside down made me snort, and I like the shadow detail under him. But does the shadow under girl bug mean she’s levitating or being levitated? And why are the frat bugs shadowless under the bright sun? Shadows can be so tricksy! Reply HexMaster on November 30, 2011 at 10:39 am the girl bug is off the ground because she’s in mid-step, yo Reply takedownthefacade on February 19, 2013 at 12:23 pm And the bro-bugs are standing on their shadows. It’s high noon, small shadows and all. Reply ⬡ on November 30, 2011 at 1:59 am That’s an awesome use of pyrokinesis. It’s hard to find ways to get back at your coworkers using it without killing them, getting arrested, or making it obvious where these strange fires are coming from. Reply Iforwhat on November 30, 2011 at 5:10 am I know i mean you set their hair on fire, next thing you know they are scream and running around setting everything they touch aflame, you can lose your job if the building burns down, also your avatar is familiar, is it someone or did you create it yourself. Reply Xartarin on November 30, 2011 at 2:07 am Really, pyrokinetic anything is bad news. Reply cyber95 on November 30, 2011 at 2:57 am I semi-regularly run games of the tabletop game Paranoia. There’s a mutant power called Pyrokinesis in it. In any given game that somebody has this mutant power, everything will be on fire always. Whether intentional or not. Don’t play with pyrokinesis, kids. Reply azh on November 30, 2011 at 6:11 am I love Paranoia (the RPG). somehow I always rolled high in machine empathy Reply ninelen on November 30, 2011 at 3:27 am Nerd Bug in Panel 1 kinda reminds me of Magneto, with those little lightning-bolt waves and all that jazz. I love poor Bug hanging upside-down. Also, is Tank-Top Bug new? I don’t recall seeing him before, but I can’t remember what I ate for breakfast, either, so that’s not saying a lot. If we’re all playing the “what power I’d have” game, I’d pick photokinesis. Take that, pyrokinetics. Or teleportation, which would probably be hella more useful to me (and I love Nightcrawler). Reply Vorgex on November 30, 2011 at 4:29 am How many of you had to Google Misogynist? 😛 Reply Dabisnit on November 30, 2011 at 7:25 am I did Reply Jeff on November 30, 2011 at 11:46 am Really? I thought everyone knew that word! I learn something new every day! Reply Strandvasker on November 30, 2011 at 4:33 am In the “what power I’d have” game I would be “master of gulls” and able to give commands to gulls and similar birds. Nothing lethal, but if you got on my bad side you would always find your house and car covered in droppings, not to mention having to sprint from cover to cover every time you were outside with a pack of birds on your tail trying to crap on you. I can’t really see myself killing my enemies, but having them targeted by bird dung on a permanent basis would be awesome! Reply Dave Dell on November 30, 2011 at 5:27 am Nice homage to S. King’s “Firestarter” in the last panel. I like the little girl’s scrunchies. I’d rather have the father’s powers in “Firestarter”. Reply GreyDuck on November 30, 2011 at 8:24 am My first thought when I got to the last panel: “Charlie, is that you? COOL!” Reply SporkLord on November 30, 2011 at 9:25 am It is now my mission in life to work the phrase ‘pyrokinetic buttholes’ into as many conversations as possible. Reply Jared on November 30, 2011 at 9:34 am Oh man I love the racist psychic. That really cracked me up! Reply computerbug on November 30, 2011 at 10:44 am Hehe, this whole strip reminded me of psychonauts. Reply Jeff on November 30, 2011 at 11:49 am Nobody else has mentioned “Tank Top Bug”‘s blonde hair so I am officially mentioning it now. It’s awesome. We need more blonde bugs! No, I’m not blonde, but I like the contrast to the “all brunette” bugs on here. Just sayin’… Reply cuzwedontcare on November 30, 2011 at 5:12 pm who saying he’s blond? and btw blonde with an e is for girls with blond hair Reply FARGORE on April 3, 2015 at 1:01 pm A little note. In the third panel the author is looking for premonition not clairvoyant. Generally clairvoyant is a form of extra sensory perception that extends natural sight beyond physical means but still restricted by time. Premonition is what allows you to see into the future. These all may be terms for abilities that are not proven to actually exist but they still do have intended meanings. A person with clairvoyance could see an object on the other side of a wall as it is now even though it is out of their physical line of sight but it would take someone with premonition to see what that object would look like in the future.
