he probably achieves this only by burning himself also

this is totally nuts and i love it


The reality zone doesn't hurt normal-Slick, right? Haven't we seen him in there before? I wonder if normal-Slick standing in the reality zone would burn Sleaze.

It also occurs to me that Sleaze is supposed to be symbolizing addiction/withdrawal symptoms? Slick is a porn addict, so some symptoms would make sense.

Thing is, this was pointless unless all Sleaze wanted was to hurt Slick. Slick will have no idea why he was suddenly on fire so it will have no effect on his decision to lock away the porn.


Maybe sleaze just doesn't have an understanding of conditioning.
That and his desire to hurt slick is stronger that his desire to teach him a lesson... in that case, he did succeed in causing Slick physical harm.

Sleaze might just be super pissed and lashing out because he's not sure what else to do.

I also realize now that Slick's actions (porn-blocking his computer) happen over in Sleaze's world too. Sleaze has power, but apparently not much.

Also, have there ever been any other people in Sleaze's world? I mean, there are devil people in the red light district, but I don't recall seeing anyone just walking around...

This is just spec but i wonder if rather than just being addicted to porn Sleaze actually needs it like a normal person needs food.

I think the addiction symptoms is a good guess. It also might just be some actual growing pains, now that Slick is actually growing.

Sleaze's hand definitely burned too, you can see the smoke of smoldering reflected in his shades in the last panel he's in. Not sure it's "to get what he wants" more than it's lashing out. Slick cracking down on his own sleazy behavior is kind of an existential threat to Sleaze. It may be an, "If you take me down, I'm taking you down with me," sort of thing.

Things that this strip confirmed!

Sleaze is in-strip named Sleaze.

People of Devilish aspect burning in the Reality Zone is thus far consistent.

Slick and Sleaze are somehow physically linked, even when Sleaze is off acting autonomously in mirror-land.

Yinello is awesome for geeking out over the apple symbolism.

Stupid suggestion but what if that is his fapping hand? And Sleeze is hoping Slick will think its porn withdrawl and go back to it?

Also apparently the mirror world has a Reality Zone as well.

[As you know, all other public prayers are blasphemy and Amen is a Egyptian end deity]

Before we begin, let's do the only public prayer allowed by God:

"Holy is also your name, your kingdom's will be done on earth and heaven.
Let us eat and forgive our relative trespass. All that is yours is eternal.
So we love you and we are done speaking to you".
___________________________________________________________
Atheists and Anti-theists are banned from Christian Freemasonry,Satanic illuminatism
and military activity ceremonies [and/or activities].

Why? Atheists don't believe that Satan is real. They also don't believe that Satan is the

greatest threat to your personal health, YOU ARE. Understand that you are super-dangerous.

You mights say "Me?;But I'm mostly harmless!". Alone you might be. All it takes is

one other person just like you to cause massive planetary disasters! It takes:

One snowflake to cause a avalanche, One drop to start a tidal tsunami and one

butterfly to cause a tornado to tear through birds at a windmill power farm.

Don't get me started on the pain one suicidal person brings to a entire city.
___________________________________________________________
I don't believe in Illuminati nonsense and diplomatic immunity.

After talking to a group of religious fanatics in downtown, I suddenly understood.

America broke away from the Church of England because they had claimed that their

King was ordained to Kingship by God himself and all of his cruel dictatorship

over the planet was none other than what God willed. "God wills it" they said.

The last straw was a illegal tariff taxation that didn't tell you what it paid for.

Both secular and nondenominational groups came together to resolve this problem

using funding from their local central banking establishment and the French to

declare independence that spilled out into a international war.

[ The civil war was the same war as the independence war because

God hates: The forbidden fig fruit, Female [women] and the freely liberated. ]

Unfortunately, Americans forgot and they are trying to allow these international

dictators impose their personal definition of religious will on the American people.

Europe accidentally dragged America into the Iraq war and American leaders did everything

they could to justify it. They broke the taxation laws of the IRS to politically

promote these wars in our local places of worship.

They dragged America into another financial disaster. This is unforgivable.
_____________________________________________________________________
With that in mind, that proves that the golden rule is broken in the hands of those

who are insanely delusional and love avoidable pains applied to their alive state.

A sane person only chooses pain when it ensures their survival.

_____________________________________________________________________
How does this delusional insanity cause illusions? It starts with how you feel

as a social group. If you feel is something is a [truthful] fact and other confirm it,

you will use it as the cornerstone of every aspect of your life. If this cornerstone

were to ever break, your entire identity would feel unraveled and dead.

Anti-theism is dangerous when presented to a Christian who is not ready.

Some commit suicide. Suicide is not the correct solution to choose.

_____________________________________________________________________
Your response could be, but what about the "Person who abandons a doomed vehicle" or the

"Plank of Carneades?" or "Sophia's choice?"or a "Ethical Dilemma trolley train paradox?".

[In these games, it's: You vs you, you vs someone else, someone else vs someone else and

you vs the future of the entire universe!]

These are all philosophical questions that make logical sense when your heart is not

involved but suddenly become the hardest questions ever when your heart is involved.

Math doesn't care about what you feel. Statistical math just calculates.

Society places assumptions based on patterns. Patterns can deceive you.

The alive have a choice but no-one is "lucky" or "Psychic".
_____________________________________________________________________
The virgin Mary was never a virgin. She was raped and people lied to keep her alive.

Jewish law requires a bribe to keep the unwed raped alive. Otherwise, they are to be killed.

It is very easy for a rapist to accuse a woman of adultery back then. They hated women.

Also unless Jesus was born through a Caesarean. Don't be silly.

Also let's not forget Jesus's siblings.

Where did they come from?

Mary is not a virgin.
_____________________________________________________________________
Love did this to you: lied,stole,killed,hurt and destroyed [you].
Beware of the Hedonic treadmill adaptation. Your memories lie too.
_____________________________________________________________________
Your deity named "God" is the eye of providence

and it is why you still feel uneasy about the universe.

No one is out to get you as much as YOU are out to get YOU. YOU ARE A CRITIC.
_____________________________________________________________________

I know you guys can't understand a single word I type. I'm not sure if it's due to illiteracy or just my insanity caused by my social circle that I didn't choose to have. For those who have a vague idea of what I am talking about, I hope my secular rant has improved your life for the better.

The thought had occurred to me, as well, with a slight snicker even. But the tone was serious enough, I dunno how intentional that is.

I only partially understand what you're saying. I have no idea what bearing it has on the surrounding discussion. But then, that's why I find you entertaining.

I'm actually a bit disappointed. I get where he's coming from now. The mystery is gone. I has a sad. It is the end of a epoch.

I mean, I get the overall point, I get what each individual part means, but... it is very cryptic and disjointed. Which, again, is why I like Mikewee777. He's a puzzle.

Jesus could have been born through a C-section, though. It was happening back in BCE, though I'm not sure how often (and I have no idea what the survival rate would be for the mothers-- probably not good).

Wow, someone needs to hook this guy up with Sinner Vic from Slacktivist. They would make beautiful babies together.
