Re: 1190: "Time"

Sorry for my last two joke posts. It is an interesting idea. The hash data is random and looks very different to executable machine code. In theory it could be a compressed file but then we should see a header with the file type. If there is meaning to the hashes I'd expect them to be released in r...

Re: 1190: "Time"

We're definitely not panning, although there does seem of be some decay on the far left of the panel. I'm guessing we're going to watch time decay Time back to the opening scene, which would leave for an infinite loop, possibly. I don't think we can have a infinite loop without Megan and Cue walkin...

EDIT: beaten by one post there... There was a also a few pixels of charge between frames 124 and 125 too, then one blank repeat (no changes), then we started zooming.

Re: 1190: "Time"

What, exactly, is leading people to believe the girl is sad? Since when is sitting down solely the act of a depressed person? Because I see no other clues to suggest it. Why can't it just be that she finished her part and was waiting for the guy to finish up and join her? Well - without other visua...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Randal could draw one of these perhaps every 5 seconds - if he spent 12 hours total doing so, this would go on for 6 months. OTOH, the comic is simple enough that the placement of heads, arms, and legs could be algorithmically generated. In which case, there could be an huge number of computer gene...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm pretty sure it has to be water. The level changed by a few pixels in the first few frames, and again in the early 20's, I'm convinced that was to instruct us as to its fluid nature. Interesting side note, that side of the scene hasn't changed at all in hundreds of newpix, there definitely isn't ...
