Trail out-smugs Stump

Wait. I recall from my boy scout training that a compound fracture indicates a bone brake that pierces the skin, causing real pain and sometimes extensive bleeding. I don’t think we saw any of that, did we? Major incidents like that are not handled in the casual manner we saw. So, either Jules Rivera doesn’t understand the seriousness of the term or Mark overstated the break for dramatic effect.

As for Stump’s erratic reaction, this seems to follow Rivera’s usual characterization of tech nerds (think Cricket Bro and Professor Bee Sharp) as unhinged or even bipolar. One has only to compare today with Stump’s polite and seemingly sincere welcome to Mark when they first met (see Feb 28 – Mar 4).
