Martin Randau

We have always called the villains you get matched with Randos of various stripes, and for some reason we assumed that everyone did, but I can’t find a lot of evidence for this connotation generally.  Urban Dictionary, a wretched hive of scum and at least one other thing, suggests that it means anything from a “random person or thing” to “a nickname for Randy” which I feel like covers the entire ragged spectrum of meaning.  There is nothing which cannot be called a Rando, apparently, which at the very least makes it easy to incorporate into one’s lexical rando.

In any case, if Kara goes to bed early, we are exposed to amethyst veins of raw randomium.  I try to make the case in the strip that we must afford these creatures a measure of humanity, but come on with some of this shit.  One had a novel strategy for a boss that involved exposing the weak point on the boss while being overrun by evil sentient robots who are from the future but also from the past.  We weren’t able to kill the Undying Mind either, but I was okay with it in that case because at least it was canonical.

Entering Team Chat might clear up some of these ambiguities, but - and this is vitally important - it would involve entering Team Chat.  Which must not be done under any circumstances.  I had this friend, Kane, who went into Team Chat and when he came out he had something attached to his face - some kind of parasite.  We tried to get it off, it wouldn’t come off. Later it seemed to come off by itself and die.  Kane seemed fine.  We were all having dinner, and, um…  It must have laid something inside his throat, some kind of embryo.  Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that Aliens is the best movie.

And avoid Team Chat.
