The first two are fairly obvious (at least to my apparently-10-year-old brain), but I'm somewhat unsure what "souffle" could be a euphemism for.

It would have to be something that rises, but could collapse limply if handled improperly. But I don't think anything like that needs euphemized. There's nothing wrong with talking about balloons, after all!

hmm, if I'm going to continue posting here, I really should have an avatar of some kind... Otherwise in the unlikely event that I have a hat bestowed upon me, there will be nothing on which to place it.

I may or may not be using prepositional phrases incorrectly. Sue me.

Wouldn't a souffle be the product of the two ingredients? So something about the vigorous motion of the banana in the... ewww

edit: wow other people responded to that fast, I guess lots of us have 10-year-old brains.

Wouldn't it be possible to take a shot of the Sandcastle, flip so that we're seeing it from "behind" and stitch it to the far left of this image to show "coast to coast"? That is, assuming they've been traveling in a straight line away from the Sandcastle?


Yep, I can do that. Though I do not think they are walking in the way that you say they are. But either way, I will get to it when I have a chance. It may be a Newpix before I can though.


Updated with the castle at the other end.
Current with castle.jpg


Also, it should be noted, do not use the above picture to measure the water level, or total elevation of the ground. Each frame has been adjusted for height to make it stitch correctly, so nothing is accurate.

Though, I did take the last castle frame (Prefade) and the frame with the river and overlay them. Use the below picture to measure water height and elevation difference. The river was higher by quite a few pixels...

So easy he didn't even know he did it. Hmm I wonder if that would be a sneaky way for a lonely/desperate older single lady to snag an unsuspecting husband? Sadly I, as an already-claimed male, will never have the opportunity to test this method of courtship.

IIRC, there's already an infamous euphemism for the frothy mixture that results from vigorous banana-fudge interaction. So "souffle" probably means something different.

I do believe your rendering of the whole of Time is accurate (up to this moment). Your comparison of water level is insightful. You have illuminated what the Creator has hidden from us. May we be forgiven and continue to wait for it.

I'm still an Iterative Loopist. What you call the Tease, I call the Second Iteration. In that one, they didn't build anything.
Think of the Iterations like layers in what the Outsiders call the Multi-Verse. Each one similar, with subtle differences. We might be at the Third Iteration - this one is by a river1, instead of by the sea2.

1 - Small
2 - Big
We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.

This would be things such as the bag era, papal & cardinal elections, hats, and so on. It could even have fancy graphs and stuff!

The same thought had occurred to me (FTFY with bold). And there would be a sort of overlapping or parallel thingy for things like BliztGirl - e.g.1 she started her trek during the ____ period, and arrived in the present during the _____ period.

1 Pet peeve -- the use of i.e. where it should be e.g. and vice versa.2
2 Pet peeve -- spelling or speaking the term "vice versa" as "vise-a -versa".

I think the increased speed of the thread is reaching a critical mass where scholarship and artistry will need to become separate fields of study. Like how several hundred years ago a person could pretty much know everything there is to know about the field of mathematics but now that would be utterly inconceivable. We may be approaching a point where one has to choose between reading it all and making awesome things for it. Like the fading into a new era this is both a saddening and exciting prospect.

Yeah. I can see where it might be a little awkward... Maybe a nice chapeau from the amazingly talented buffygirl would add just the right splash of color?

*girlysqueal* :D

Milk cartons are apparently very powerful, capable of summoning ZombiePopes. And StratPlayer is correct, you still need a hat!


Oh, I absolutely agree about the incredible power of your magical images!! And I absolutely luuurrrvee mine!

But yeah, it's the Hatlessness of Helper that screams out for attention...


But does the milk carton get the hat or does the image of the original avatar on the milk carton get the hat? I guess that's up to our Cardinal Milliner.

I'll be the one to state the maybe obvious here: "Yes," the River1 is actually emptying in to the Sea2. *ducks for cover*

Hum, I'd think the obvious is "Yes, there are other rivers".
