Be cool Peanut all will be well!!
Tarot to the rescue!
wow did even know he called her ^_^
Hey, if everybody had girlfriends like that, we could drive phone companies bankrupt!
Telekinesis would be better! No one would be able to hear you! but then it’s powered by your thoughts, so you might get some undesired words in the mix… and driving phone companies bankrupt would force them to make telekinetic enhancers and crap…
I think you mean telepathy. Telekinesis is moving stuff with your mind.
yes then theres astral projection, pyrokinesis, cyrokinesis… oh wait i’m just rambling XP
*consulting fail counsel*
*being surprised i spelled filibustering right*

*reliving traumatizing moments*
I love the subtle reference to the Indian action movie sequence. Will there a musical number following?
Heh, I’m glad I’m not the only one to have noticed that!
I love Tarot’s logic here.
Reminds me of Mrs Cake. “Did you forget to turn your premonition on again, mum?”
Reminds me more of the Oracle in The Matrix. “Don’t worry about the vase?” “What vase?” *crash* “…That one.”
That was Scary Movie. XD
How was that scary?
I think FlareKitsune was referring to Argent Stonecutter’s quote being from Scary Movie. But then again, I only saw that movie once (and that was some four years ago), so what do I know?
I haven’t seen “Scary Movie”. The quote wasn’t even from a movie. It was from a Terry Pratchett novel.
It actually was The Matrix.
My work here is done.
this has to be like the longest that a conversation in this blog thing has gone on for. Also, I agree with “NobodyYouKnow”. This is a lot of confusion.
As much as I like Terry Pratchett, the original attribution to The Matrix was correct.
I don’t recall anyone saying “Did you forget to turn your premonition on” in the Matrix.
Sorry; I was talking about the Matrix quote on the next level up.
Hmm, apparently here foresight is short range. Just like my Remington Combat Shotgun, it’s useful, but only good for up to about 45-55 meters.
It’s probably more like “Oh, Peanut’s going to call me at 4:45. If I leave the house at 4:20, I’ll be able to reach his at 4:44. Ok, cool. Let’s watch TV ’till then”
you! you read jack! put a link for it!
(i am currently unable)
I am reading Jack! =) I are <3-ing it!
put a link! please.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Don’t you know it.
Aww. Tarot’s so cute.
hey, now I can see the Knocks!! :D:D:D
XD Tarot is sooo cute!!
Man, Grape and Max can sure make fast decisions o_O
Also, i got a chuckle at Tarot’s response to Peanut. ‘Duh’
That’s Tarot for you. What other response would you expect from someone who pesters “the spirits themselves” when she “seems to have misplaced the remote”?
Poor Peanut is wasting his better side with Grape
Think about why Tarot didn’t show up sooner has cause me to go cross-eyed.
I suppose she’s right. I mean sure it would’ve been great if she had arrived earlier, but then imagine what would’ve happened if that was the case.
It’s time paradox!
Whenever I try to reason that out my mind goes blank
You are now almost ready to understand Tarot.
what’s not to get? Obviously she knew he was going to call her but she couldn’t arrive until he had made the decision to call her… to do so before-hand would simply be rude! :3c
try to wrap your head around the 4th dimention, and i mean vector, not time
(nobody need point out my spell fail, spellcheck on the fritz)
Aww, Tarot’s adorable.
And I fully understand her point.
Also, don’t worry about the vase.
“Oh, I’m sorry”
“I told you not to worry about it”
its like it was scripted! everyones two cents fit in perfectly!
just going trough putting my avy where it goes
theres definite added benefits about a girlfriend being there exactly when you would like them to be, would be the same the other way round too
Ahh, timing. Needed in comedy and perfect for clairvoyant pomeranians.
She’s so cute! It will take Peanut some time to get used to someone who knows what you want prior to you wanting it.
Mhmm… that would be so useful, don’t you think?
Urm, I mean stuff like… he wants a drink and she gets one out of the cooler… doh!
Tarot has GOT to be my favorite character. She’s zany, adorable, and makes everyone chuckle when she shows up. Her logic is at the same time irrefutable and completely insane.
Also oh man can you imagine how it’d be if Tarot joined their game right now? It’s going to be GREAT!
Ok, let’s do the idol scene again.
Grape: …choose wisely
(Peanut reaches towards red idol)
Tarot: Wait, that’s the idol that makes Max drench you with a water balloon
(Peanut withdraws paw, and looks towards green idol)
Tarot: That idol will give you a headache for the next three days, though I can’t exactly foresee how.
Max: Awww, man, stop ruining my fun!
Tarot: I knew you’d say that.
so, yes, I can imagine
if you think about it, forseeing is accurate imagining
still on my quest to put fnar where it belongs
Oddly enough, Tarot’s logic is totally understandable. And funny.
What a psych XD
Head tilts to side, “Logic… not… working….” smoke starts to come out of the higher ear “does… not…. compute…..” falls over..
Aww man! This was supposed to be my day off.
*pulls out logic bootdisk*
Ah, the glamorous life of tech support.
Sorry, but the logic hotline is unavailable for March Break (at least in Ontario, or Canada, or North America… I told you it was down!)
It’s elementary, my dear Watsons!
If Tarot had arrived before Peanut would have mad ethe decision to call her over, it would have created a time paradox as Peanut would never had though of calling her over if she did show up sooner.
Plus it would be rude to come over uninvited.
Well now. There’s a paradox. Tarot arrived before he called. But that can’t be the future now. Yargh! Psychics. Always messing with logic.
Tarot only says Peanut was going to call. Once he expressed the intent to do so, that was more than enough. Tarot never said Peanut would actually call her, so no paradox
Ah, Tarot, always messing with Peanut’s head …
Heh. Psudo-double date #2? I was missing Tarot.
She really is good at foreseeing things. Peanut could learn some stuff from her…
Hey! My vision came true! Now I will start on the lottery numbers…
*eyes glow blue*
Hmmmmm! I’m getting a message…
*Bee bee beep!* We’re sorry, the future you are trying to see is busy. please try again at a later time.
Dangit! I’m all out of minutes.
LOL! But wait, how do you get the free minutes to begin with? Is there someone who sells psychic abilities? Somone, perhaps, with big blue wings and a lion’s hindquarters?
Who said anything about free minutes? I have a 500 minute plan from Horizon Wireless Foresight. I’ve been using most of them during while playing MW2 online. I really need to update my plan… after I get another job to pay for it.
Horizon is still better than T-Mental. They have a 700 minute plan but you can only see the future in limited places. It takes four to five Foresight bars just to see a few hours into the future. And thats if your lucky.
That’s nothing! I used to have a Froogle Think plan, and let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty. My Airtooth messages kept returning to me, saying that they couldn’t find the person it was addressed to. Apparently they were hitting some sort of “PM” radiation that was signed with the IP Address for Housepets. Weird, huh?
i say phooy (yes phooy) on thoose companies. only small companies will offer telepathy & pyrokenisis. of course, yuo have to know how to haggle
just tagging my avy to my post (see bellow comment)
XD Tarot logic.
Okay, see, she COULD have shown up earlier and told Peanut that he was going to call her because Grape and Max were going to leave him out of the decision-making, but he might not have believed that if he hadn’t seen it himself. Notice that she didn’t start walking over when he started wanting to call her; she ARRIVED when he started wanting to call her. She HAD prior knowledge of his needing companionship!
Or else…you know…lucky guess? :3
The final “duh” totally makes this strip.
I agree lol
I agree with you Argent.
Without that little bit of humour, it just wouldn’t be the same.
*eyes grow wide, he jumps up from a sitting postion* I’ve got it!! Tarot didn’t come over before beacause she….. wait but if she ………. then that would mean….. then Peanut would… hmmmmm??*lays down and grabs a handful of “thinking” Cheetos, deep in thought*
Logic behind Tarot not showing up til now: Time branches, and seeing the future that will happen comes with all the futures that could happen. Meaning that before Peanut decided to call, Tarot just knew that he might decide to call and doesn’t wanna over step her bounds by showing up uninvited. Ergo she didn’t know Peanut WOULD call til now, she just knew he MIGHT!
>w> Then again, it could just be Tarot being Tarot. Whichever
This all reminds me of Ted Dekker’s “Blink,” a novel where Seth Borders, a graduate student with one of the highest IQs in the world is bestowed with the awesome power of being able to see multiple possible futures. Throughout the book, Seth constantly escapes danger by using his gift.
Ted Dekker is truly an amazing writer, and I have read his Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, Yellow). The fact that he is a Christian just adds to the fact.
I can follow her logic.
Allow me a moment to quote Mal Reynolds of “Firefly”:
“Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?”
Oh shes good….
◕ ◡ ◕ Seriously!!
Well. It looks like I’ve got a favorite character now :3
But isn’t King already everyone’s favorite character?
I resent that!! Grape fan ftw!
I’ve read all these comics from the first one. Can’t wait for the next strip.
XD Tarot is awsome!
solved my avy problem. email error
Hey, I found this site a few hours ago and I just read all the comics. I love it, and I can’t wait until the next one comes out!
Tarot is so cool!
(come on guys, welcome the new guy!)
(Now with 100% less “p”, which doesn’t save much space since I’m typing all this underneath it… I wonder when comments will have alt-text?)
Same as above. Loving these.
I wish my gf was like that
Tarot seems to have taken several skill ranks in Premonition Checks.
Tarot is freaky but OHH so cute ^^
pfffft. I don’t see why people didn’t understand this.. I mean she explain it quite clearly. Obviously she have been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? Her guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It’s just common sense.
and with that.. I am off! whoosh! Into the sunset!
I’d love to see you try and read that out loud without breaking up.
I’d love to see Nightfirex try to read that period without breaking up.
I can do more then that.. I can put it into rap with a cool drop-beat for you.. or put it to techno. Being a musician has it perks.
I wonder what Tarot does during her offscreen time!
Tarot, apparently, does tarot.
