I think Cueball fell into the cave of doom. Where's that self-sacrificing Beanie when we need him?

Edit: Oh, wow. Image Ummm.... anyone want to do any double-dactyls?

Sorry, one self-sacrifice per Beanie. Image

In other news, the posting rate for the OTT is now the fastest it's been since NP1358, two wips after T** **d of Time.

Yes, and that is computed on a 24-newpix decaying average, meaning that it would take 1 or 2 dips for the average to find its new level (for comparison, observe the spike starting at Newpage 1254). So it's possible the rate is actually a bit higher than the stat you see for NP1830. :D

Edit: Where is @jjjdavidson? He still hasn't read that PM I sent back when I recorded "Some New Way to Blitz" ... :( LURKIUS SUMMONUS ! ! !

Edit2: Cueball fell and ruined the castle. Who didn't see that coming? I don't want to monomolpyize the UNGs...

The Zanclean Zodiac

_________________

Hi, y'all. I have a bunch of OTTifications in the works. That is to say, I haven't been able to finish them. When I am finished with the Zanclean Zodiac then I may finish them (though it does still require a brain...). I have one more that I must finish, but again, maybe after (though, this time, right after, next post). I hope y'all have enjoyed this Present Present (pizza pizza). Now, lurkreplies:

karhell, great #942!

Neat sequential ONGs, EoM.

Wow, this is no longer just a lurkreply thingie...there's actual ketchup! Gonna have to continue in parts, again.

Yep, ever since the Timeversary hit, I have been knocked back into the past, again!! Gotta get "back to the Future" before Moadness hits!!! *stressed*
FutureNote: 3 dips and 5np later, I'm in the present again!!!

Welcome back, AluisioASG. No present needed, your presence is all that is needed. Making things work perfectly is actually hard, as you can see by all the mustard and apocryphal frames brought to us by GLR.

Great improvements on #1347, HES & ED (because I didn't get it either)!!

HES wrote:Is anyone still keeping track of post rates?
If done with mine, it would be a bit erratic. Would the proxy-posts count? lol.

I didn't get it either, it appears to be a reference to the film Hackers (which I'd never heard of).
I knew you were young! Maybe you weren't even born yet? You know, not to sound rude, but, you can rent/see movies from the past, especially those of cultural value. Admission: I have never seen Citizen Kane, Scarface, etc. I have seen The Birds, The Goonies, BTTF, etc. lol.

Ooh, great find. I did say that. The question is always, was it before the title? It appears to be amidst the end of the OTT-Maddening, and I don't remember any title giving happening during, so, cool.

You helped me find mine, so, hopefully, I will help you find yours. :)

I didn't know those things weren't related.... Same could be said for hamplies and bots. They're all definitely OTT-related, but only ancillarily related to the OTC. You are a silly molpy for closing a tag not opened. :P

Can't quote all, but good read. Thanks for the update. I prefer the faster speed. Now that it works with the URL (as previously stated) it's much more enjoyable to fiddle with. Thanks to adnapemit for the original (which was too hard to enjoy). The reason I like mrob's version is mostly due to the fix for consistent flaps (before I could not figure out any good timing as the flaps seemed to differ not based on user-input).

Agreed... mostly :) What if the FTFY is just fixing indentation, or adding a mismatched parenthesis? What if it's a quote that isn't a FTFY, but they change the formatting by mistake? One should be counted as a direct quote, the other shouldn't, right? But how does the algorithm distinguish the two?
I think this originated with a discussion of word-counts and for generating useful metrics like @Kieryn's QI (quote index) ... but let me know if there is another type of application.

Not a real meetup, but one where we pick a time, and we touch some water that joins with the sea, which is big, and the sea connects us with its bigness.
Like, wow, hippies...in NZ? ;) lol. But, I love this idea. Something due to our privacy issues but yet something we can do regardless. Like, we all decide to go to the beach (or a shore of any kind if not possible) and dip our toes in the water at the same time (local or universal). We then take a snapshot of our toes (no faces = no privacy issues). We post those when we can. I especially love it as this is OUR unique way of a meetup, therefore, OTTerific! ;) :D
Update: Looks there's interest (yay!) and logistical issues. How about, everyone does it at their sunset/sunrise. The pictures would be nice. I don't have a solution for the coldness of the ocean. Okay, noon, then? *sigh* I'll get back to y'all.

StratPlayer wrote: introspection always leads me to a sense of amazement over how inter-connected the comic, the OTT, and EVERYTHING is.

I mean, like, as an obvious example, the GLR, in his wisdom, chose "1190" as the perfect number to use for the number of the OTC. This is clearly no coincidence.

Here's why:


1. "1190" is also the frequency in kHz of AM 1190 WOWO in Fort Wayne, Indiana, which has broadcast at this frequency since March, 29 1941. Notice how the 'March 29th' corresponds to the period of live unveiling of the OTC. Uh-huh -- I know! But there's even more.

2. Fort Wayne, Indiana is also the birthplace of Shelley Long. Did you know that Shelley's current project is called "A Matter of Time", which is now in post-production? See???? But there's more!

[...]
Ch*rp I miss you!

Jose

Seconded, and Seaishly so.

I've decided. If I ever finish my two current OTT projects(No, I haven't forgotten either of them, I've just been busy) I'll do a reverse schizo-blitz, with sign posts for every 5-10 pages read. That should take me through to the yip 5 AT.

Sorry, I still don't understand. Those look like numbers. Does balthasar mean 6.1? Is that how 6.1 is pronounced in Polish? Or, is there only 366 names available to the Polish people?
This uses the heretical calendar... twenty-sixth day of sixth month (which, if my recall of the Ancient Ways is molpish, would be "June"). The other is the sixth day of something called "January". I think "name day" is similar to (or identical to) "Saint's day" - the birthday of the saint after which you were named. (Some religions require you to be named after a saint). Redundancy is molpish; you can share a name day with people of different names, if the appropriate saint was also born on that day.

Now, I wasn't going to mention this, because I'm pretty sure I already seem like enough of a wacko, but then I thought, could we have a meetup like this? Not a real meetup, but one where we pick a time, and we touch some water that joins with the sea, which is big, and the sea connects us with its bigness.

By the time I finished reading the second (here first) paragraph, I was having the exact same idea.
Scheduling this is going to be real hard.


On the other hand, it isn't. As the speed of emotion through semencafeincancerbaby is totally dependant, synchronisation is achievable asynchronously. If all those who wish to participate stick a portion of a body part in a fluid connected to the oceans (e.g., oh I dunno, an actual ocean or water vapour in the atmosphere), then we can declare communion to have occurred. Time and place are no Iess concepts than ritual and feelings.

The OTTscars (Part 1 of 4)

Postby yappobiscuits » Thu Mar 27, 2014 2:19 pm UTC

The scene opens with the sun beginning to set over the shore of the seaish sea, near the mouth of a riverish river. Marquees decked with fairy lights have been erected all over the beach, and underneath them are many round tables covered in food and drink, around which are sat the entire population of the One True Thread. All OTTers, even those who usually dwell in the basement, are gathered here. The scene is dotted with all sorts of colourful hats, as the OTTers have dressed to the nines for this very special celebration: Todip is the anniversary of the start of the One True Comic, Time.

As well as the OTTers, many molpies are scurrying around under everyone's feet, or playing by the water. The redundakitties are especially lively, as they so rarely get a chance to see the world outside of the spoilers they so diligently guard, except on special occasions such as this. The beach is also dotted with sandcastles of all shapes and sizes, alongside some miniature baobab trees planted in pots, and a couple of grapevines are planted just offshore.

Standing most prominently in this busy scene is a large outdoor stage. A figure in ceremonial robes steps up to the mic, and the chatting OTTers, even the scurrying molpies, fall silent and pay attention, for this figure is the Pope of the Order of the Holy Contradiction. Behind him, also dressed in ceremonial robes though not as grand as the Pope's, stand various clerics, heralds and scribes, also paying respectful attention to His Pontiffness. The Pope surveys the crowd of OTTers, and then finally speaks.


The Pope wrote: My dear OTTers, Timewaiters, most loyal followers of the One True Comic, I bid you all welcome. I trust you are all enjoying your Timeiversary festivities, but now we come to the main event. I declare the Official One True Thread Awards Ceremony, better known as the OTTscars, officially open!


The Pope raises his arms, and a large "OTTscars" banner is unveiled behind him, as a fanfare sounds. The crowd cheers.

Image


Spoiler:
The Pope wrote: First of all I'd like to thank everymolpy who voted, and also thanks to BlitzGirl for providing the treeish OTTscar trophies. Now as you all know, the Timeiversary also coincides with the Madness, but hopefully we can get through the proceedings without too much trouble, so without further ado, thine jellied blurtles have too many fornicators, floob weeble flibble flibble twonk. Fweeb dweeb bloop HODOR! Hodor hodor HODOR HODOR HODOR…


The Clerics whisper among each other, before escorting the Pope, still Hodoring away, off the stage. The First Cleric steps up to the mic.

The First Cleric wrote: Oh dear, it appears the Madness has got to the Pope. Not to worry, I shall take over proceedings until his condition improves.


He clears his throat, and rearranges the Pope's notes.

The First Cleric wrote: Over the course of Time, while we have so loyally waited for it, we have seen many things. Things that have been treeish, they have been molpish, some have even been wowsometerfulish. Tonip is the nip we look back at and celebrate the molpishness that the OTT has given us over the past yip.

Let's kick things off with the categories of OTTer awards - awards which are given to individual OTTers for their contributions and achievements and general awesomefulness.

We begin by hodoring- sorry, honouring those we have lost. Nobody truly leaves the OTT, but some now dwell in the deep dark basement instead of molpying around with us like they used to, and this first award is for the basement dweller we miss the most. It's a good thing even the basementees are here tonip so our winner can accept the Basementee Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: Coming in joint second, we have Helper and cmyk (though it's entirely possible they may be one and the same person) but the winner, with a huge majority of the votes, is an OTTer famous for his Panther Salve poetry and his terrifying pet. It is of course...

charlie_grumbles!


The OTTers applaud and cheer as Charlie smiles and gets up from his table. He climbs the stairs to the stage and the First Cleric hands him his award. All the trophies are specially shaped to match the award's theme, and this one is a figurine of a molpy standing guard over the basement trapdoor. Charlie has only had his hands on the award for a second when a huge demonic winged creature swoops from the sky and snatches it from him.

charlie_grumbles wrote: Fluffy! No! Give that back, that's my award!


Fluffy wrote: SCREE! I'm your pet, it's my award too!


charlie_grumbles wrote: Fine, we'll share it then.


Fluffy wrote: Wheee!


Fluffy flies back up into the sky, the award still in hand.

charlie_grumbles wrote: At least bring the award back! FLUFFY! Ch*rping damn it!


Charlie goes to sit back down, a little disgruntled, but then suddenly Fluffy crashes through the marquee roof and lands right next to Charlie's table.

Fluffy wrote: HAH! You didn't think I'd really run of with it did you, Master?


Charlie chuckles and places the award on the table.

charlie_grumbles wrote: Silly molpy!


The First Cleric wrote: Silly molpy indeed, and that brings us to the next award, which is funnily enough, the Silly Molpy Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: This award is for most eccentric OTTer. We're all rather mad here in the OTT, but who goes beyond the call of duty? Whose posts sometimes make you think "What in GLR's name have you been smoking?"

In second place we have addams, whose poetic posts and streams of consciousness often leave many a little perplexed, but the winner by just a couple more votes is well known for being at times highly cryptic, and it has often been said that he might be operating on a different level of thought to the rest of us. Who could it be, but…

AluisioASG!


The dragons of the OTT are seated in a specially made, much larger marquee in order to accommodate their huge size. One blue dragon stretches his wings and flies out up onto the stage to accept the award. It's shaped like a molpy wearing a very silly hat (even by OTTish standards) and pulling a silly pose.

The First Cleric wrote: Congratulations Aluisio, you're officially our silly molpy!


Aluisio wrote:Huh. I prefer "enigmatic" to "silly", y'know… but thanks!


Aluisio takes off from the stage and glides back to the dragon marquee.

The First Cleric wrote: Now for the first award that was put through the second round of voting, the Clever Molpy Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: This is the award for the most intelligent OTTer. Whose posts manage to get you making an audible "hmmmm" sound due to the intelligence involved? Well, charlie_grumbles, mscha and Sciscitor got a good number of votes each, but two OTTers came out up top. In a very close second place we have mrob27, known for his clever and entertaining blitzposts as well as being the only OTTer to be mentioned by the Great Lord Randall himself, but in first place, well who would believe it? Once again, it's…

AluisioASG!


Aluisio wrote:Oh! And I'd only just sat down…


Aluisio once again flaps up to the stage to accept his second award of the nip. This award is shaped like a molpy wearing a mortar board and graduation gown, holding a diploma.

The First Cleric wrote: Well it just goes to show, eccentricity often comes with genius! Steakish, Aluisio!


Aluisio glides back down to the large marquee, and puts his second award alongside the first.

The First Cleric wrote: Now who's up for a giggle? It's time to find out who's the Funniest OTTer!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: In second place we have the otter OTTer yappobiscuits, but the runaway winner with a vast majority of votes is… well it might as well have been yappo, because the winner is possibly the same person! It's our happily hatted hamply…

HES!


A little blue ball rolls out from under one of the tables and heads towards the stage. It bumps into the bottom step, then cracks open and a little furry face with a blue beret pops out. The little hamply struggles to climb up to the stage, but the steps are too seaish.

The First Cleric wrote: HES? Is he here?


HES wrote:*Squeak!* Here!


The First Cleric wrote: Oh I'm so sorry! We should've made the stage more molpy-friendly…


The First Cleric goes to lift HES up onto the stage. HES scurries over to receive his award, which is shaped like a laughing molpy.

The First Cleric wrote: Are you sure you can carry that?


HES wrote:I'll be fine! I'm a surprisingly strong hamply…


HES takes the award, lifting it to balance on his head, and scuttles off. With such a small hamply underneath it, it looks almost as if the award is moving along the ground by itself.

The First Cleric wrote: Well done to our funniest OTTer, HES! And now, it's time to find our Kindest OTTer.


Image

The First Cleric wrote: Who always knows the right thing to say when someone's feeling steambottlish? Who's the best at making you feel warm and fuzzy and molpish inside? Well, in equal second place with a good number of votes each, we have BlitzGirl, and lmjb1964! Both lovely people who will always take the time to say something nice to brighten anymolpy's day. But the runaway winner is someone known for caring for her fellow OTTers as if they were her own children. Often known as the matriarch of the OTT, it's…

SBN!


SBN goes up to receive her award, accompanied by all her wolpies bounding along beside her. The award is shaped like two molpies hugging.

SBN wrote:Oh, thank you so much everymolpy! This is really-


SBN is interrupted by her black wolpy snatching the award in its mouth and running off with it.

SBN wrote:Oh no! Come back!


SBN chases her wolpy back to their table.

The First Cleric wrote: Oh my, we do seem to have a problem with pets stealing their owners' awards tonip… let's hope it doesn't get any worse… the next award is for the Geekiest OTTer!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: OTTers are proud of their geekiness, but which OTTer seems to be the most knowledgeable about geeky subjects, be it science, computing, or popular geek culture? In second place we have mrob27, but the winner is… oh my, his wings will be getting tired with all this flying back and forth, it's…

AluisioASG!


Aluisio wrote:Eh, this is nothing compared to some of my long-distance flights!


Aluisio flies up on stage to accept his third award, which is shaped like a molpy in glasses reading a book and holding a test tube.

The First Cleric wrote: Indeed, as the creator of the Chirping Mustard domain, the OTTer map and much more, this award is well deserved! Steakish!


Aluisio takes his award back to the marquee, then takes all three of his awards and lies down on them, in typical dragon gold-hoarding fashion.

The First Cleric wrote: Now everymolpy knows it's all RELATED, so nothing is truly off-topic in the OTT. But who never seems to coma and is always on the OTT all the Time? Who always replies to everything? Whose post count seems to rise inexorably through their constant chatter? It's time for the Chatty Molpy Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: A few people got one or two votes here, and HES is in second place with a couple more, but the winner was pretty unanimous. With a post-count towering above all the other OTTers, she seems to celebrate round number milestones every other dip! As such a universal presence in the OTT, it's unsurprising she's often considered the life and soul of the thread, and things are certainly noticeably quieter when she's not around. It is, of course…

BlitzGirl!


BlitzGirl, who was just about to throw a donut at ucim for making a pun about "universal presents", stops upon hearing her name, smiles, and puts down the donut. She gets up and heads towards the stage.

The First Cleric wrote: I see you've left the punsaw at home and opted for the gentler donut approach todip!


BlitzGirl wrote:Well, it is the Timeiversary!


BlitzGirl accepts her award, which is shaped like a molpy holding a microphone.

BlitzGirl wrote:Treeish! I made these, and now I've won one… heh!


BlitzGirl goes to sit back down, but not before mashing a donut into ucim's face as she passes his table.

BlitzGirl wrote:You didn't think you'd get away with it that easy, did you?


The First Cleric wrote: Ahem, good to see puns are still being dealt with even during the celebrations… anyway, let's move on to the Blitzer Award!

The First Cleric wrote: Reading it ALL is a noble tradition for an OTTer to undertake. All blitzers are considered great and honourable in the eyes of GLR! But which blitzer's journey was most fun to follow? Who wrote the best signposts? Well, balthasar_s got a good few votes to land third place, but two blitzers came out way in front for this one. In a very close second, we have the master of clever and entertaining signposts, mrob27! This is his third second place so far with no wins, poor molpy. He must be the Leonardo DiCaprio of the OTTscars… but the winner by a very small amount is…

BlitzGirl!

She goes up to accept award number two. This one looks like a molpy with a laptop displaying a lightning bolt.

The First Cleric wrote: I suppose it's only fitting that this award goes to the OTTer that gave Blitzing its name, and inspired so many to follow in her footsteps! Steakish, BlitzGirl!


Upon returning to her table, BlitzGirl takes her two golden molpies and pretends to make them talk to each other.

The First Cleric wrote: Now we move on to the creative awards! OTTers are known for being a creative bunch. We have artists, writers, poets, musicians, photoshoppers, all sorts! Firstly, an award for someone who is either especially exceptional at what they do, or seems to be able to turn their hand to anything. This is the Overall Creator Award!

The First Cleric wrote: In second place, known for being an excellent visual artist as well as a writer, it's BlitzGirl! Close to three in a row there, but not quite… well, I guess you don't have to get up again! The winner of this one is best known for his songs, but also dabbles in visual art too, including many smileys. It's our otter OTTer…

Yappobiscuits!


Everyone looks around, but Yappo's seat is empty. Suddenly there is a *splash* from the seaish sea, and a furry head with a blue/green hat pops up from under the water. The waterottermolpy swims to shore, then bounds up to the stage.

Yappo wrote:Sorry! I was a-coma…


The First Cleric wrote: Ah of course, should've known Yappo would be Yappocised as ever.


Yappo wrote:Hearing my name woke me up! Ch*rp, I'll have to ketchup what I've missed of the awards so far…


The First Cleric wrote: I thought you were the one writing this whole thing...


Yappo wrote:Shh, no fourth-wall breaking!


The First Cleric wrote: Not to worry, the Second Scribe is making a record of everything as ever! And here's your award!


Yappo accepts the award, which is shaped like a very busy molpy trying to do all kinds of creative things at once. He then happily molpies off to his table, where he grabs a whole large fish and stuffs it in his mouth.

The First Cleric wrote: Next up, a more specific award for a creator of visual artwork, be it original art, ottified art, ottercomics, manips etc. This is the Artist Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: In second place, known for her manips and flutterbeewingish OTColourisations, it's ggh! But way out in first, the winner is known for her wingish original artwork as well as inventing the redundakitty, and of course making the very awards we're presenting todip! Aluisio's not the only one with three awards now, because it's…

BlitzGirl!


BlitzGirl goes up to accept her third award, which is shaped like a molpy in a beret with a paintbrush and palette.

BlitzGirl wrote:I love all my awards, but this is the cutest one yet! Even if I do say so myself…


BlitzGirl takes her newest award back to her table, where she proceeds to try and feed it one of Valarya's cupcakes.

The First Cleric wrote: The next creative award is specifically for a creator of written artwork - stories, poems or songs, original or ottified. It's the Wordsmith Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: My oh my, the votes for this award were definitely the most unanimous of all! Nobody got more than a couple of votes apart from one OTTer who absolutely sailed away with this one. Best known for his hugely popular series Acts of the Clerics, which this awards results post is in no way whatsoever totally ripped off of-


Yappo wrote:What did I say about breaking the fourth wall!?


The First Cleric wrote: Sorry! The winner of the Wordsmith Award is…

ucim!


ucim, who has only just finished getting the last of the scrumptious donut off his face, goes up to receive his award, which is shaped like a molpy writing with a quill on a long roll of parchment.

ucim wrote:Treeish! It's nice to know my chronicling of the completely true stories of you and the other clerics is appreciated!


The First Cleric wrote:Very much so!


The Second Scribe wrote:Though you'll put me out of a job…


ucim heads back to his table with his award.

The First Cleric wrote: Alright folks, let's have one more award before we take a break for more food or coma or sandcastle building or whatever! This final award in the creative section is for a creator of tools, analyses, scripts, databases or any other useful, interesting or generally geeky stuff. It's the "Stand Back, I'm Going To Try Science" Award!


Image

The First Cleric wrote: In third place, we have Sciscitor, creator of the quote constellations and other visualisations, and keeper of the ottification database! In a very close second is mscha, creator of newpixbot and an excellent site for Time resources including a useful OTC viewer. But winning by a nose is an OTTer who created many charts of thread activity, and a site full of OTT statistics and other nifty little tools. It's…

Kieryn!


Kieryn, who was busy drawing some exciting penguimolpy action for his newslides, stops working to go and accept the award. This award is shaped like a molpy wearing a labcoat and goggles, imitating the shirt the award is named after - holding a flask and a calculator aloft.

Kieryn wrote:Who needs a nobel prize when you've got this? FOR SCIENCE!


The First Cleric wrote:A much deserved award for showing us so much interesting data about our great thread! And now it's definitely time for a break. I need a cuppa, and those cupcakes Valarya brought look delicious… but keep Waiting For It, as there are more awards to come!


Kieryn goes back to join the party, and the clerics also leave the stage to mingle with the OTTers. The Pope can still be heard emitting the occasional "hodor" from behind the stage, but he seems to be getting better. The dragons swoop around above the beach to stretch their wings along with rvloon the owlraptor, some OTTers build sandcastles, and Yappo the waterottermolpy, HES the hamply, and azule the foxmolpy along with the OTT's various wolpies and meowlpies frolic and chase each other.

The last of the light is fading as the sun has set, but the fairy lights on the marquees, the stage, the grapevines and the baobabs keep the party lit with their magical lights as the OTTers enjoy their celebrations.


(With apologies to ucim and his AotC characters! Thanks again to BlitzGirl for drawing the awards. Also, I deliberately didn't write any acceptance speeches from anyone, partly to save time/space, but also because I'd rather the real people say something if they feel like it, rather than me trying to write it for them!)

Congratulations and steakishness to our winners so far!
Part 2 coming soon, Wait For It!

I guess this is ketchiup part 1 — though I was only gone for 10 shortpix! :D

Molpish summoning-verse @BlitzGirl! Image Image Image Oooh, and more double-dactyls in preview! Image

In UNG-related news, the Time Replay viewer now shows the full URL of the image, for more convenient UNG-posting. (It's not as fancy as @mscha's, but it's probably better than nothing, particularly for those using a phone or tablet to post an UNG)

azule wrote::) BTW, that Chronogram looked suspiciously like a blitzasar_report. *eyes*

Yea, for I was following one of the molpiest decrees ever seen on the OTT, the classic post in the style of another OTTer of Newpage 1775. I also did a bit of @Eternal Density style a few blitzenposten later.

... Admission: I have never seen Citizen Kane, Scarface, etc. I have seen The Birds, The Goonies, BTTF, etc. lol.

Hey kid, get off my l—, . . oh wait, I haven't seen those either :oops:

While this does recognize my name, It isn't recognized as my name itself. Are you trying to make the bot play regex golf? : )

regex-regex golf, actually. No, I wasn't...just can't help myself.

That is so meta-meta-molpish ( ( :) ) )
    Edit: GAK! Nerd-sniped by my own code trying to get it to parse the <q : .. : > tags in the above nested quote. I'm playing meta-meta-meta-regex golf! :D or as my friends like to call it... 8-) regexception
    Edit2: Got it working. The problem was the second 'ᘊ' in 'ur'ᘊ?[ᒣᓭᑫᖊ]+[ᐧ,ᑦ]?[ᖚᘊᘖᘈᑲᓄᑕᖊᔭᖽ]*[ᑦ,ᐧ]?[ᔭᖉᔕᘖᖆ]?ᓄ?'

Thanks to adnapemit for the original (which was too hard to enjoy). The reason I like mrob's version is mostly due to the fix for consistent flaps (before I could not figure out any good timing as the flaps seemed to differ not based on user-input).

Yes, I have to thank @adnapemit too. It was a lot of fun learning more 'bout JavaScript and vending my first hotdog (albeit a riverish one). I believe the flap-timing was random and browser-specific, such that ye might have had much more erratic gameplay as compared to someone on a different ship or usin' a different browser.

it was fun to take a tangent trip with you. ;)

Aye! — tangents ahoy! Arrr— *THWAP!*
    Hmmm, it seems my piracy-suppressor had stopped sailin' thar for a wee bit— *THWAP!*

I forgot to reply to this, but it's really poignant. And I can't get to the sea1 from here, but the suggestion made me cry. :cry: in a molpy way :)

Okay, more ketchup to go...

Sliding pengmolpishly past yappo's post to do a bit of ketchup first:

I have seen movies from the past, just not that one. I am young, though. I've passed my Birthyip post since the Timiversary.

Oh, yes! Clever hamply! (I forgot that Dropbox lets you do things like that) I think you can fix mustard after the fact too, right? I use my own website for changing images (like my blitz status in my signature) but Dropbox lets anyone do something similar.

Fix mustard, add hats and pretend they've always been there despite what the following posts might suggest...

Has anyone OTTified Imagine Dragons - Amsterdam yet? With lines like
Your time will come if you wait for it, if you wait for it
it's an obvious candidate. Same album as It's Time, too. Maybe they're secretly OTTers.

Oh, right, OTTscars. *reads*
