Re: 1190: "Time"

I just legitimately used 'time frame' in an outside context (heresy, I know, there is no Outside), but I had to triple-check that it was actually the correct term. (Final project write-ups using the phrase 'time frames' are ok, 'newpix', probably not.) Hahaha, what has this forum done to me...?

I've been meaning on comment on your userpic. That's a golden Mike, with "To the Prettiest" on him? Discordia and Monsters Inc. are quite a combination. :D

Re: 1190: "Time"

Maybe she's building a banner? If so, maybe they aren't expecting an incoming tide/tsunami/flood (the banner would be a horrible thing to way in the flood zone; it'd just get washed away and become shrapnel-like).

In other news, the one true comic was mentioned in boing boing.

I have a feeling that the building of the castle will continue from 48 to 96 more newpix. Then, whether it be wind, water, another element, or time, the sandcastles will erode to nothing.
