Out of pure curiosity and the habit of nitpicking

How does Tat's name work? Is he supposed to be Mr Tatsuya or Mr Ishida? I'm partially aware Japanese names work differently, but he lives in America, but then again, well I don't know.

Anyone with further knowledge of Japanese names, some help please? I know I could just fire up Wikipedia and kill my curiosity but seeing as Tat lives in America I'm not really sure if he's presenting his name differently or whatever.

And uh
Tat is Japanese, right?

He is actually presenting his name differently. Spelled out normally it's "Tatệễuda Dishươida" and there are only two acceptable ways to refer to him, depending on the context:

Honorific, Tatsuya as a cultural superior in a room with you (seated): Ishida-tat

Honorific, Tatsuya as a cultural superior in a room with you (unseated or running): Tatshida Blastmaster

Be sure to address him only in the pluperfect subjunctive.

Sam's winding you up like a good 'un pal. Tat is actually Welsh, a pure bred valley boy, and his name means 'makes clean water brakish'. It's pronounced like it's spelled. With a 'T' in it.

Gary's having you on. Tat is actually third generation Bostonian and his name is actually a set of instructions on how to get to copley square from alewife using only roundabouts and dunkin donuts' as navigational points-of-reference.

Shadowcell is lying. Tatsuya Ishida is actually a gestalt question of consciousness that confounds Popperian epistemological Falsifiability.

His brother, Dasein Ishida, was studied extensively by Heidegger

Ah, no, we might as well come clean, we were all having you on. Tat's real name is Gottfried Dasenundzeit, and his nationality will become clear in time.

Ha, no, all joking aside, we're just making stupid philosophy puns now, and as a solipisist, I think you deserve better.

Speaking of solipsism, I do find it a wonderful philosophical construct. I only wish I'd thought of first.

But no, now, calm down, take your seats again. My philosophy jokes are stupid and dumb and not funny. Sam was making some great jokes about Bishop Berkley earlier, I don't know if anyone saw them.

Ha, now, no, sit down again, I've another here, right here. So after considering the awful philosophy jokes I've made, I did actually look up solipsism on wikipedia.

It's a genuine and accepted theory, with consensus backing.

I thought it would be.

guys, as always, you are missing the question.

the question was, "how does tat's name work?"

and the answer is, it really doesn't. his initial, T, that works - you can see it has signed all the comics. the name, not so much. tat's name is clearly a freeloader, living off the bounty provided by his initial. lazy, lazy name.

unless the question was really "how (artistically) does tat's name work?", and i'm guessing, tablet?

Well that's why Monads never caught on, shy little fellows, sitting in a desk drawer. Esse et percepi* is what it's all about. Monads might be the building blocks of perception, but they're no Kylie Jenner.

And just to spoil everyones fun....

If you check wikipedia, it lists him as Tatsuya Ishida.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinfest

And I'm pretty sure that Ishida is a family name.
