    Jack is my new favorite character. (Sorry, Sid.)

    • Yeah, Jack is awesome.

    • svartalf

       I’d say it’s a bit of a push.  Each are awesome in differing ways- and I can’t pick a “favorite” here.

    Now that’s a negotiating position.

      Heh…  She thought she could just bully him since she’s got “authority” to keep him out of jail because they need his abilities.  Sadly for her, he can read her almost like a book- and he’s liable to know just about how far he can push things…  He just pushed it a bit too far in the bar, really.  Everybody makes mistakes…

    That’s a dangerous game of chicken he’s playing. I imagine prison would be all the more terrible for someone with his powers.

      In the immortal words of Kenny Rogers: “You gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em – know when to walk away, know when to run.”

      A good con man trusts his instincts in reading people and situations.

        Instincts?  Heh…  He doesn’t need instincts…he’s got magic eyes and can read ’em outright without guessing.

    • svartalf

      It’s a dangerous game, yes.  But he’s already living that game- and his special abilities give him the edge; he can see just how far he can press things with people in this context.

    Oh look. Yet ANOTHER Barber.

      I don’t get this “every woman is a Barber” thing. Is it some joke I’ve missed?

      • Hornet

        It’s because all the women by and large have similar features and the same powerful personality.

        • KomiIsDrawing

          Except Florrie, who is an actual Barber :)

          • But but didn’t the detective lady sign her notes N Barber? In her case that seemed a bit more solid! ^_^; Also one of the Barber grandchildren is a grandson, yes? So the ‘every woman a Barber’ impulse could get people into trouble anyhow. ; )

            • “Cpt. Nicola Barber”, as a matter of fact.

              • …which may explain her “Oh, God, what is Harry up to now?” expression when Jack mentioned the woman on the train…

          • Me-me

            At least they’re not pignoses any more!
            Considering where you were… you’ve come a long way.

          It’s cool, though, I know I have a long way to go with a few things, and making faces more distinctive is one of them.
