Let me get this straight: your companion mother (which sounds gross, even by GoT standards) makes money on her PC, which you seem to think stands for Personal PC, and she’s been out of work (sorry, w0rk) for sometime and yet works 10 hours a day. Do I have that right? I’d be a fool not to follow that suspicious link.

Well, maybe they are using a recursive acronym for it, sorta like GNU = GNU Not Unix, and PHP is PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. /s

Doing the math, assuming they work 8 hour days, that means they work 28 days a month. Or, if they were 10 or days, 22 days a month. So about 50 hours a week. Despite the alleged hourly wage, that’s a lot of work in a month. I wonder what that work could be.

If they are only making 52 an hour doing porn, they need to step it up.

Well, English is a hard language to learn especially from the poor schools in Kolkata. They also don’t realize that a 10 hour workday is really long by our standards.

The bad English is deliberate. These scams are aimed at a particular group of people. People who respond to messages with bad English are generally more likely to part with money later.

That’s a broad brush, but when you are using scattershot chat bots to send your message, you use a broad brush to try and get the most gullible to respond.

It’s the same reason “Nigerian prince” scam emails also always have bad English.

For all the reasons I can imagine Ethan being overwhelmed and taken out, I wonder if it’s that easy. We’ve seen that he doesn’t really do long deaths. Any incapacitating injury that might kill him seems to kill him instantly. Though the easiest I can imagine it is “if the injury is bad enough that you would die in a video game it’ll kill Ethan”. If they shoot him through the leg it’ll not be lethal, but we’ve seen before Ethan is willing to blow himself up for even just a distraction. I actually have a hard time seeing some… Read more »

Just to note, a shot in the leg can easily be lethal since there are big arteries in there. A shot in the right place and you can bleed out very quickly.

I agree! With guns it is all to easy to fire a lethal blow. All the more reason it’ll be difficult to keep Ethan down. Guns are difficult to incapacitate without being Ethan lethal and often still offer him the option to kill himself. Getting someone unconscious is actually incredibly difficult, especially if you don’t want to do any potentially Ethan lethal brain damage. Ethan does 3h of intense training every day and has some really weird fights under his belt, like robot ninjas and mech suits. There are plenty of things to imagine to keep Ethan down, but it… Read more »

Ethan has been shown killing himself when gravely injured a few times. What’s interesting to me here is that he does seem to have some control over where he respawns. He popped in right behind the guys that attacked him. I have to say I feel for the gang. I HATE it when mobs spawn in right behind me in video games.

It’s might be that he respawns as soon as it seems like he can’t survive, not just when he actually dies/is going to die. Maybe as soon as he has “lost”? Might be able to gaslight him into respawning. 🙂

Be honest. What was the last game you played that had a life system? Where if you died, you didn’t just go back to the last checkpoint or save point, but had a Game Over and had to start from the beginning?

Y’all are expecting Ethan to have 3rd Generation powers in a 9th Generation world.

If you don’t know exactly what his powers are, then you can’t exploit them.
We know that Ethan respawns after death. They don’t.
They know that he heals, he teleports, and he doesn’t stay dead.
Immediate adrenaline rush doesn’t say “aim for the legs” it says “ramp up the aggression.”

The more he uses his power, the closer they come to understanding it.

Albie might try shooting him in the leg to disable him next. Though even if Albie does just that, Ethan would still have a chance at using one of his gadgets to finish himself off. Ethan’s gotta either flee or incapacitate these guys soon.

Ever since Ethan was captured and held captive in a manner he could not commit suicide by Zeke’s old master, I have been wondering why he didn’t get a couple of cyanide capsules in his teeth to prevent that from happening again…

Groundhog Day is terrifying when you realize how long he had to have been trapped repeating that one day in order to get as skilled as he was in all the skills and lore he needed to perfect his plan to win the love of his co-worker. Harold Ramis, the director, said “It takes at least 10 years to get good at anything and allotting for the downtime and misguided years he spent, it had to be more like 30 or 40 years.” and Whatculture did an article on it where they took that statement and day counts mentioned in… Read more »

One thing I can’t ascertain; Can he control where he respawns? Does he get into pause-time “spectator” mode? or he’s gone through this so many times, he can figure out what to do while respawning.

I mean he’s still respawning, and he has his tazer out and get it started. From the last panel looks like he anticipated where he’ll respawn and have figured out his next move!

it appears he can to a limited range control where he respawns and even whatt he has ready to use.. he has used it before against other foes. like the time he took himself out with a controller bomb, and reappeared behind the enemy and grabbed him before he could use his powers to escape. and every time one of these guys takes ethan down, ethan appears in their blind spot with a counter. shoot him in the head, he appears beside you and clobbers you. shotgun to the spine, surprise you get a taser to the back of your… Read more »

If you stop to think about, Ethan has an absolutely ridiculously powerful ability that is difficult to counter for long; there are several ways of killing yourself, even if you were mostly incapacitated, like e.g. you could bite on your own tongue, or you could not empty your bladder — the latter option would take quite a while to work, but an untreated, ruptured bladder will kill you. The only practical method would be to keep him unconscious, but you can’t keep him in medically induced coma forever, either, since it slowly causes deterioration of your nervous system, including the… Read more »

What if you were to toss him out of an airlock in space without a space suit. Toss him fast enough or send him far enough before he runs out of air and dies and he should be out of range of a survivable area for him to respawn safely; he’ll just keep spawning and dieing in the vacuum of space.

He supposedly respwans in a “last safe state” way so theoretically he’d respawn on the ship.

not if the ship was moving. The ast safe place would now be void, unless location is relative to something other than absolute, planet, sun, or last death.

The entire planet Earth itself is moving through space on multiple trajectories, not to mention it is spinning as well, and yet that hasn’t stopped Ethan’s power from working. That’s clearly not a concern.

In a vaccuum, air gets sucked out of your lungs really quickly and your blood effectively boils. Ethan would die pretty quick.

Even if you killed him, forcing him to respawn on the ship, then self-destructed the ship, I think he would revert to the last place that exists where he was safe – the space station you left 2 weeks ago…

A wise villain would stage a fight in an “abandoned” warehouse and deck the place out with all kinds of sensors – see if you can record the energy of the respawn. Maybe you could develop a way to block it – trapping him in a specific spot, no matter how many times he manages to off himself.

I am pretty sure we will never get a full or halfway-full explanation how Ethan’s respawn powers function because you could pretty fast devise counter-measures. For example, the prime question would be if he respawns where he was a certain time in the near past or if he spawns where he was last in safe condition. And how would a safe condition be defined since he respawns close to the guy with a shotgun. So, if Ethan spawns in place where he was a few seconds ago (time-based condition) you could simply lock him up in an under-water cell some… Read more »

Wait, does this mean his gear and equipment is ‘refunded’ when he respawns as well? Like he throws his controller-rangs, dies, when he comes back does he have them back too? o.O Bro has unlimited ammo and liveslol

Makes sense, about “unlimited ammo.”

Since he respawns fully clothed and his clothes look intact… No bullet holes, no blood,etc…

By the same logic that does that, he should get back to a full compliment of trinkets. He’d have to make sure to bring them along in the first place, of course.

Ethan should have one of those poison capsule teeth installed, so if he’s ever in a tight spot he can just bite down and escape via respawn.

I agree he should. But if he used it, would it be a “one and done” or would it replenish upon his respawn? Either way, he should definitely have one on him at all times.

Considering that he respawns fully clothed, and his clothes respawn in perfect shape (no bullet holes, etc.)…

I’d assume everything he has on him, respawns. Including such a tooth, and even the trinkets he spends (like the thrown controllers).

Waiting for the arcade style ‘Warning! 99 lives cheat code at limit, insert coin to continue?’ A fun thing to do for those re-reading this: do a head shot count of how many times Ethan Has died thus far. First was Lucas’s arrow with some odd ones like blood donation that were noted As happening, but offscreen.

Next useful gadget for Ethan: A sucide pill. Respawn at will at any time. And since it resets him and everything he has on his body, the suicide pill should respawn as well.
