Could be. However, it is a babygoat so it is molpish enough to be repeated.

Pope?
- Yes?
Could you make a papal decree?
- OK. Hmm let's think. Those who want to follow the decree should talk about themselves in the third person.

If we talk about others, is that okay? Maybe others should be in first person.

I bookended that NP well. It was a nice try of mine, balthazule, to get another molpy ong. Hah!

Bmonk used to be addicted to Mopey-Popey, but then bmonk turned himself all about.



On another note, with all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last wip.

Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for the family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in..... and then the trouble started.

Dracomax thinks that is accurate. But Dracomax has also explicitly abstained from joining any churches, in order to serve the inquisition impartially, and to enjoy retirement from said position.

Then Dracomax is not a member of the Western Paradox church--which implies that he is a member in good standing.

Except that Dracomax has never explicitly denied such membership either. Dracomax has taken the heisenbergthΣ on the matter.


ΣDracomax Maintains that you can know whether dracomax is a member of the Western Paradox church, or in the basement, but not both at the same time

No--unless there is sufficient mattenergy in universe to cause the universe to contract.

No--unless there is sufficient mattenergy in universe to cause the universe to contract.

… in which case it would already be a contracting universe.
Spoiler:
It might be still expanding, but one could already predict that it will contract again. Our universe however seems to be just on the border between eternal expansion and contraction: It will expand forever, but slow down to zero. Natural constants seem to be adjusted precisely to this value. Life is weird.

Of course, it could be a real star, but given that it has a similar trajectory as the sun, does point towards a planet.


Well, not really--over time (days or months), the planets follow the sun's trajectory, but over a few hours on a single night, all the stars and planets would pretty much follow the sun. The moon, over the course of 12 hours, does move noticeably, about 6.6°. Venus, because of its inner orbit (to the Earth) would move quite slowly when near its greatest elongation, and not much faster at other times.

Stupid Physics.

Nono, Stupid Physics is the statistical physics assignment I'm currently supposed to work on but can't figure out. I don't think the university would appreciate it if I posted it here, but suffice to say I dub it Steambotthulhu, Unmolpish Assignment of Unmolpish Assignments. The professor says we should be able to figure out his assignments in ~2 newpices on our own. At least 25 cooperative person-newpices have been put into it so far, and we just don't get it. The worst part: if you ask the professor for tips -- which several people have done, repeatedly -- you get an explanation that is tangentially related to the problem and basically boils down to Zanclean Epsilon. Oh, and did I mention the deadline is tomorrip?

Uuugh! I hated profs like that! (Some are even legendary!):

There was a famous professor (fill in name of choice) who was rather absent-minded, and often glossed over important details and principles in his lectures. After one particularly eliptical class, two students stopped him in the quad and asked him to explain more fully what a particular derivation came from. He looked into the distance for a few moments, and said, "Yes, you can get it that way too."
They replied, "But we don't understand what you are using!"
Again he went into his trance. "Hmmm, That should work as well."
"But . . . but . . . but . . . ."
"I'm sorry, I have offered you three different ways to look at it. If they are not enough, I cannot help you!" And he proceeded on his way.

The Case of the Other Donut

He started to eat the donut, but after taking one bite it became like unto a sea, and did what it wanted. So Jose took another bite, and it became an open parenthesis. There was no close parenthesis close by, so he turned it over. Now there was no open parenthesis. There was however an open closet door, behind which was a mirror. In order to save the universe from the trauma of mismatched parentheses, he crept into the room with the mirror and held up the donut.

However, upon reflection he realized that this might not have been the most clever idea, as he couldn't stay in the closet his whole life. With a mouthful of donut there were few options available, so he broke the donut in two. He now had a double quote. Or two single quotes. Or two commas. Or one comma and a single quote. Or a short sign (but not a shortstop) and an arc symbol. The mental tension kept rising as more different kinds of mismatch came to mind, some of which the mirror could not help.

The donut had to be sacrificed. But how? It was a trolley problem, rendered more difficult by the equivalence of the redundancy (and the lack of a suitable lever). Since Archimedes was not around to advise him, he'd have to sacrifice both of the remaining pieces.

First one was popped into Jose's appreciative maw and ground into a pulp, to ensure it would never menace the OTT again. The other one would have to wait for it, but not for lONG, because Jose's eager teeth were already on the second commandment. (Or was it the third.) In short order, the donut was effectively dispatched in its entirety, leaving the mirror as a redundant redundancy.

Thus having saved the OTT, Jose got up, left the closet and closed the door. An open and shut case.

Bravo! Bravo! Ladyraptors and Gentlemolps, I think we have a worthy successor should I be unable to finish The Case of the Riverish Fastwater. Not that I'm planning to cede authorship any time soon ;)

JFOM wants to say that xe didn't realize that it's been an entire yip since the last time the OTT had been collecting store banners...
(There's only one around right now, apparently, but there's no reason why that wouldn't change later.)

It had also been slightly over a yip since JFOM's first post in the OTT, which feels, if anything, even weirder.
There are two films that I particularly like.
One of them is a science-fiction dramatic comedy involving a boy who accidentally travelled in time. Extremely popular when it originally came out in 1985, it retains a major cult following to this day.
The other one, of course, is Back to the Future.

mscha caught them much later.
In fact the hiding is mustard. The molpies should remain visible until they leave the scene to the right. The mustard is fixed now.

  1. Automome is sentient.
  2. Sustainabilizer tried the same but did not find the darkenong pixel.
  3. He guesses he'll have to retry.
  4. Wait for it.

Also: Happy read-write-executable-for-everyone post count!
