Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
On board the alien starship, Hugo continues the tour guided by Captain Pbbbbbbbt and the entourage. They look in on a room full of aliens, seated in groups at long tables. There is a distinct division between the females and the males.
CP: This is one of three meal halls.
CP: It is shared by officers and non-coms. The second is also shared.
CP: A third, much smaller, is for senior officers and special guests only.
Hugo looks out over the room, with CP beside him.
Hugo: The room is shared but ...
Hugo: Well, if I'm correct about your gender morphology, there isn't much mixing between the females and the males in this shared space.
Medium shot of Hugo, CP and the entourage.
CP: Discipline requires limiting social interaction between the officers and the non-coms.
Hugo: You mean, between the female officers and the male non-coms.
CP: We all eat the same food. We are quite progressive, you know.
Hugo and the entourage continue down a corridor.
Hugo: Does this … social arrangement reflect your society in general?
CP: It is the natural way of things. Females are more intelligent; males are physically stronger.
CP: By emphasizing the strengths of each gender we maximize fulfillment for all.
Hugo falls silent and CP notices the change in his demeanor.
CP: I am sorry, did I use words not in your translator matrix?
CP: I am not sure how I can express the concept more simply.
The group continues down the corridor. Hugo has a dark expression.
Hugo: Oh no, I understand your words.
Hugo: It's your concept I'm having difficulty with.
CP: I understand that you are modeled on the males of your species, so this is to be expected.
