Comic 65
Heidi: If the bots only aim at faces, we should be OK if we cover ours.
Max: Let's find some disguises.

Heidi covers her head with a large flower pot with eye holes cut in it, Zhang uses a simple cardboard box.
Heidi: Anything with no resemblance to a face should be safe.
Zhang: I'm going Metal Gear. Nothing beats a cardboard box. Where is Max?

Max has covered his face with a large piece of paper with a QR code on it. The QR code reads: “Don't shoot me”.
Max: I found a large format printer hooked up to a computer with a QR code generator.
Heidi: Don't complex patterns have a risk of causing false positives?
Max: Not here. I know the face model they're using; it is optimized to never react to QR codes.
