Re: 1190: "Time"

I never got the American use of "legos"... to me, they are pieces/parts/sets of lego. If you have a sand pit, you don't say it's full of sands... [/flamebait] You can count Legos. You can't count sand. Well, I guess you can. But it's a lot harder. You can also count rices, by the way. Wel...

Re: 1190: "Time"

My first post (page 410) wasn't particularly useful... They're gone. *sigh* As I recall, I figured that since nobody would ever read it because of the moderation queue, what was the point of writing anything useful?

This is partly because my numbers are colored (synesthesia anyone?). Well, my vowels are colored too, but consonants are all black to me, so it's still harder.

Re: 1190: "Time"

1728 is the next candidate for the End of Time, being the next round number. (Not saying I think it will end then; it's just a good number for the endists to predict as the end.)

Re: 1190: "Time"

I don't think either post-apocalypse or camping, at least for Cuegan. On discovering the second river, they said, "it is not much farther from home than ours at its driest." Home, to me, means something more substantial than a tent. There are tents in this world, but they may be occupied ...

In the next frame the view will probably change again, and we'll get a view of the river so we can see what they mean.
