LOL. The only thread where you can be ninja'd by four pages.

Re: 1190: "Time"

But what are they calling fresh here? Is salty fresher than their previous sea but not as fresh as a river? :shock: That's the conclusion I would come to. Really?! I know we all love our prior conclusions (there's a name for that, right?), but I think that since they're used to rive...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I thought first to point to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, but didn't find anything about building with that salt. It is terrifically hard, though. It, too, is the remains of a Pleistocene lake. Hmm. Given that comparison, I suppose you could build sand castles out of it, based solely on the st...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Hmmm. Yes, I like your dam idea... I was trying to think of a humanized justification for building such a thing but I couldn't so my brain skipped over it. I think you nailed it there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantropa ( Posted before in the OTT.) A German, not the Dutch, who came up with tha...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I just went back in time to tell myself that I would read most of the words in a 1200 page forum thread about a webcomic.

I thought it was hilarious then, too.

Re: 1190: "Time"

All right, the overlapping words are creeping me out. Is there more going on here than mispronounced or halting speech? It's from the perspective of Cueball & Megan's comprehension of the speech. When it's completely foreign, it's in a foreign alphabet. When it's something they can understand, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

A Joke: Two OTTers were walking together along the sea 1 whereupon they discovered some tracks. The first OTTer says to the second OTTer, "Them's molpy tracks." The second OTTer replies, "Nonsense. Them's beesnake tracks." Then the train came. 1 Oblig. footnote. Can you tell I'm ...

I think you'll find that this split is along the same lines as the madagascarists vs. the general africanists

What about the Antarctica-ists?


Or the Puertoricoists?

Re: 1190: "Time"

Megan's suggested snake species is bothering me. ... Right? Yup. She just described a sidewinder. How many people (not necessarily with Megan's knowledge of *stuff*) know what snakes are found in the range they're in. And while I'm wondering things... why are they speaking English in Madagascar, an...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Only in whatever accent(s?) 'then' and 'than' are pronounced the same. I don't recall ever hearing such an accent, but given that some people confuse those words, I can only assume it exists. Would anyone care to enlighten me on what that particular merger is called, and which accents have it? The ...
