* UnfortunateImplications: Winslow gets a chassis upgrade from what looked like an iPod to an actual android body, which Hannelore can easily afford. Winslow has about a strip and a half to enjoy it before being scolded by May for "privilege" and being informed as to their (Winslow's) "duty" to less-advantaged AIs. Do you think there's any chance at all that "privileged" Winslow's new chassis is black, female or both? Nope, there's only one group it's acceptable to call "privileged", even if they're robots.
** Shown in [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3549 #3549]] that the privilege May speaks of is that he can get a brand new high-quality chassis thanks to Hannelore's family fortune, while she can barely afford to maintain hers; race is never brought up in the storyline.

* NightmareFuel:
** [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1293 Tapirs]]...but [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1374 Hanners is onto them]].
** [[SchmuckBait For the love of God stay off of]] [[http://twitter.com/pintsize0101 Pintsize's Twitter]].
** [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1437 Number 1437.]] Just... Number 1437. Rainbows are scary in the right context.
** ''[[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1496 "MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP!!!!"]]''
** [[NightmareFetishist Pintsize]] [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1498 liked it]]
** The guest strip for [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1711 July 19 '10]]. ''Gah''. Done by the author of ''Webcomic/DeadWinter'', of all people.
---> [[AC:I want to taste your nightmares!]]
** Hanners of all people gets one [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1753 now]] assuming she isn't kidding.
** Fifth panel [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1776 here.]] Dammit Jeph...
** Blatantly invoked by [[http://questionablecontent.net./view.php?comic=1983 Martin's hairstylist's art project.]] Thankfully it combines this trope and NightmareRetardant in the last panel.
** [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2813 Pintsize makes a Kickstarter video.]]
** There's something slightly eerie about seeing [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2881 Pintsize completely powered down]]. Doubles as a {{TearJerker}} and a sign of just how bad things have gotten.
** A rather philosophical bit of NightmareFuel: Faye and Bubbles speculate on the possibility of an omniscient AI, and [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3240 the idea that our world is a simulation being run by one.]] Bubbles notes that such a being is physically impossible, since a thing of arbitrary intelligence would require arbitrary amounts of energy, but that could be overcome if such an intelligence weren't conscious- that is, if it weren't aware of the world outside itself. Such a being would be incapable of understanding or sympathizing with the creatures it simulates, [[CrapsackWorld which would explain the apparent amorality of the universe.]]
** Spookybot, a being apparently foreshadowed by the aforementioned discussion, is [[DarkIsNotEvil seemingly benign]], but the fact remains that they're a super-powerful and dubiously-moral AI that even ''Station'' doesn't know about, and during their confrontation with [[spoiler: Corpse Witch]], there is something very subtly ''[[UncannyValley wrong]]'' with their face. Maybe it's the slit eyes, maybe their mouth is too wide, or it could just be the context that [[spoiler: they're [[KickTheSonOfABitch torturing Corpse Witch,]]]] but they just seem... [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3413 off.]]

** Faye and Bubbles start acting more coupley and touchy-feely as their friendship develops. [[ShipperOnDeck Claire has]] [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3341 taken notice.]] [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3369 So has May.]]
