Strip 611 -- First Seen: 2011-01-10
Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go!
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.
Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.
SubscribeStar update: Not yet
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
Continue the scene at the bar. Carlos is angrily confronting Ed, as Larry stands by.
Carlos: Isn't the Belt an anarchy?
Carlos: So how come all the rules about no physical stuff?
Looking past Carlos at Ed, who remains calm.
Ed: Carlos, anarchy means 'no rulers,' not 'no rules.'
Ed: Rules – or more correctly, 'guidelines' – are an emergent phenomenon in all cultures, even anarchies.
Two-shot of Ed and Carlos, Carlos looks a little surprised when Ed speaks to him in Spanish. The translations appear in a caption box at the bottom of the panel.
Ed: Amigo, yo no quiero verte convertido en un 'social veinte-veinte.'
Caption: 'I don't want you to be a 'social 20-20.'
Another two-shot, focusing more on Carlos, looking perplexed.
Ed: Un 'veinte-veinte social,' es un tipo que no ha aprendido lo que significa ser libre. Puede que lo mataran.
Caption: 'A 20-20 is a guy who doesn't understand what it means to be free. It can get him killed.'
