To be honest, I actually didn't spot the raptor itself (still haven't), just its chirp.

Non-chirping raptors escape detection in this way (one more for pastdecree).

Time to analyse everything again again?
What we have here
the line is the path of the light, which changes direction at the air-water border.
the dots are the particles
the arrows are the forces working on the particle.
they are equal in each direction so the particle doesn't change speed or direction.
in water it's the same as in air but the forces are greater.
if we just see equal arrows in all directions
we don't know if the air (water) is pushing the light particle in all directions or if it's pulling it in alll directions.
The border tells everything
air pulls the light towards itself and water does too but water is stronger.
So this is an attraction force between light and the matter it is in right now.
Apparently this force works only on direct contact because the light changes direction only at the very border where the particle touches both air and water.
"This theory explained everything known about light at that time"
i was going to ask
What about total internal reflection?
How can a particle bounce off of nothing (in case of void for example)
But I realised that if it's an attraction force then yes it can be explained too.
Actually I had to reed the article about the reflection to find out.

Now, next frame, 99 and the importand questiong what is light

I see the timer; right now it's telling “55:12:07”. At this Time the text for the next ONG should be in view already, but it isn't. This has happened before, and it resulted in the timer getting reset to a lot of waiting when it reached zero, instead of getting the next ONG.
While waiting is molpish, let's hope that this isn't the result of mustard or raptors or zombies attacking our balthastoryteller ... (He didn't use goto, did he?)

It's admirable – for one thing because it simply is, for another thing because you somehow managed to create the manip without noticing the seamolp, but with removing it accurately.
