I wait.
I am rewarded.

Then I wait some more.

Baobabs, balthawords breaks out in punnery again! Image
At least it was a pun of very high quality.

Take a closer look at the image :wink:

Good catch! There is more to these physicsONGs than meets the eye...

I've been waiting for it Einstein to show up. What's he doing, playing corpsicle-billiards?

I think it would disturb me also to find that my phone had secretly gotten married while I wasn't looking (and wasn't invited).

I am so amazed by the copious variety of images available on the net. Is there anything nobody's made an image of?

That's the power of webvenience for you.
Many, many newpix and nopix have been spent sending image corpsicles into the aethernet, or something.

At least in my experience, image manips take a whole lot longer to complete than you expect them to at the beginning.

For a moment there I thought you were referring to the ellipsis, and got confused.
Did we ever decide what to call that Commandment In Between The First Two Commandments?

No, actually. And there is no "second commandment". I have fallen into heresy, and must atone.

There is the First (and greatest) Commandment, and there is the Other (and just as great) Commandment. Those three dots are still the subject of great theological debate.

I'll be in the Comfy Chair.

Congratulations on your find, and thanks for letting us know how you did it – including the source code under a reasonable license. :)

Computery stuff:
Spoiler:
My compiler warns about the “break” being in the same line as the “if” in the function “mustard()”. This might confuse human readers to think that the “break” depends on the “if” (which it doesn't, wasn't intended to do, and would be wrong). But that's a matter of taste, of course.

My compiler warns about the “break” being in the same line as the “if” in the function “mustard()”. This might confuse human readers to think that the “break” depends on the “if” (which it doesn't, wasn't intended to do, and would be wrong). But that's a matter of taste, of course.
That part was written in 2014, as a part of the bluenhancement tool. I don't remember what I was thinking then so I don't know what made me think that this would be a good idea...

So readers picked a location around the Hawaiian archipelago, and that somehow resulted in the destruction of said islands, wiping them clear off the map?

Looks to me like readers picked a location in Baja California, but since it was in Spanish, nobody knows what they really said.

I don't know what US maps they used in your school, but that is clearly the conventional location of Hawaii where those question marks are.

Or possibly Alaska, I was never that great at geography and they're right next to each other down there.

Don’t see your city on the list? You can invite me! I’ll be adding one more US stop to my tour based on the results of a challenge.

The challenge: Write the best story using nothing but book covers.

Arrange the titles of your favorite books into sentences that tell a story, assemble a single continuous line of people holding up the covers, and take a photo or video documenting your feat. You can make the story as long as you want, but each book needs to be held by a different human.

How does interact with matter? How does it move?

If we don't perceive the aether, how can we observe any interactions between it and matter?
The aether is aeverywhere. So if we see matter doing something how can we know if that's what matter is normally doing, or if it's an interaction with the aether?
we can't see how matter interacts with aether but we can see how matter interacts with light.
That's something, at least.
If eather is filling the whole world, then it could be a perfect reference frame.
If we can observe a behavior of matter depending on the speed relative to that frame then we can confirm the aether and its interactions with matter.
We already found out that the light has an actual speed.
Speed is always relative to some reference (so far).
If we can measure the speed more accurately than "20 - 22 minutes to cross the Earth's orbit",
and measure the speed of light in different directions at the same time.
then we could determine our (Earth's) speed relative to the aether.

Hi Balthasar,

your spectrogram from this post of yours got re-posted, without context, in another thread. This made another user so curious that they re-created the notes and a MIDI file from the spectrogram, see this post.

OMR!! GLR is coming to my town! To my neighborhood, in fact! Going to get tickets right now. Woohoo!

Also coming to my town(ish, or at least nearby)--Rakhal! Rakhal, my schedule has been, and continues to be, hectic, but if you have time to get together, let me know. And good to see you here(!

And of course, I haven't been here all that much. :( Ch*rpin' Outside. I have much ketchup. but I peeking in here and there and am amazed by 1) the creativity of the hidden images in the phys story and 2) the cleverness of balthasar (and svenman too, I think?) in finding the images. You people are all awesomeful.

I totally squeed when I saw the hidden images contained a zombie and a raptor. Image Image Image
Thanks, as always, for those smiley repositories, BG!)

And while I'm in the repository, I see that Jose has posted a few times, so even though I still need to ketchup, I'm just going to assume that this is needed:

Sorry I haven't been around much, but like the song says, you are (all) always on my mind.
