    I thought we'd established a few strips ago that what they're doing is a terrible idea, why are they still doing it?

    Oh no, we are doomed. Agatha will be stuck in it for the next couple of chapters.

    At least there is no current doom hanging over them... yet.

    Am I the only one who's having problems loading the page? It's impossibly slow, and it never loaded the new comic.

    Lol! Odds are she'll still be in the suit this time next year. It's probably why the Foglios are taking pains to limit the weapons she has available in it.

    If we learn she can breath underwater in it, then their is definitely an extended underwater adventure planned for her.

    And if they say in the first chapter that there is a speargun hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off.

    So they're screwed either way, unless something incredibly improbable happens.

    Luckily for them, one in a million chances show up nine times out of then.

    Agatha's sense of self-preservation actually managed to override her enthusiasm for SCIENCE!!! But that's only mildly improbable. Probably not what saves them.

    I imagine the weapons would have been noticed, and would have provoked a very bad reaction. It could be because of bringing weapons to negotiations, bringing many weapons to negotiations, bringing hidden weapons, or drawing attention to the tail's artificial nature, just for possible reasons I can think of.

    If they really are concerned about being unarmed rather than just indulging sparky tendencies, they could try having Agatha openly carry a single obvious weapon, separate from the costume and clearly not ready to use, similar to a sheathed sword or holstered gun. Bringing a disguised arsenal capable of leveling a city would naturally provoke suspicion that she intends to use them. Bringing one weapon openly, acting like it's just something she brings with her everywhere by default, is more likely to be seen as just a sensible practice for someone who regularly faces danger as much as she does.

    What is this? Self-awareness and sensibility? This truly is the improbable path.

    Wait, so the ambassador suit not being outfitted with huge piles of weaponry increases everyone's chance of survival? Remarkable!

    That's entirely reasonable.
    Or would you go unarmed?

    There are steps between unarmed and high explosives.

    If you're still around to gank me it clearly wasn't overkill.
    Quite the opposite actually.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    You are assuming you can actually hit something while blazing away with your entire ammo loadout. You can't. And that's assuming you're shooting in the right place and not at some decoy.

    All I'm hearing is "If you're leaving scorch marks you need a bigger gun."
    But considering Agatha wants to try that diplomacy thing discussing how big a boom is to big might be slightly misplaced.
    On the other hand "Speak gently and carry a big stick." Just not concealed. That's stupid.
