Is a conversation not nothing less then a series of brief statements, woven together by the fabrics of Time?

After lurking far too long, both before and after the creation of the account for this humble visitor of this Glorious Thread, begin my pilgrimage through the ebb and flow of The One True Comic known as Time, in order to join the Knights Temporal. I greet thee, future avatar.

I don't know how or why the river should reach the sea.

Megan is giving an explanation for why the river is not here yet, by stating that the river is small. So some effect is not happening for the river because of size. The sea is big, so it does not have the same problem. Normally with a lot of rain, you would see a river rising a lot, and the sea not, because of the size. The only explanation is that this is anti-water. That is the reason it tastes bad.


River-to-sea is a continuum where the water from the river flows into the sea. The quote implies that there is a void between the river and the sea, something that would not typically occur in a natural system unless the river was dammed. In the case of a tidal effect, the river (freshwater/saltwater boundary) would only approach the sea/shoreline during the recession of the tide.

The way Megan talks, it suggests that because the sea is bigger, it is more prone to change than the small river. Does this just show that she doesn't really know what she's talking about, or is there some kind of process here which we don't understand?

also know as: The Self-Referring Recursive Chapter. (TSRRC)

Our "clubhouse" is in the (hidden) backroom of a bakery, not far from the central TimeWaiters restaurant.

Our local rituals are:
- We deny our existence and also we deny our non-existence.
- We replace "and" by "and also"
- We meet at breakfast (which can be any time of day, since it's always a good time for a breakfast)
- We drink Tea (although Coffee is also allowed)
- We wait for it

Our ranks are:
- NewGrain
- SandGrain
- HigherGrain
- Chief of Grains

Our logo is:
Under construction. Concepts already exist.

To become a NewGrain, you first have to proclaim you are a Sandmason, then later deny this. After the denial you are initiated.
Anyone of a higher rank can give you a rank-upgrade as high as his/her own rank.
Any initiate may and also may not refer to him/herself as a "Sandmason" or "Son/Daughter of a Beach".


As the Founder and Grand Mason of the Brotherhood of Sandmasons, I welcome you to the order. Now send me all your money.

A major event would cause the river to flow backwards and rise.

According to discovery[dot]com:
The force of hurricane Isaac drove the Mississippi backwards for nearly 24 hours on August 28. The force of the storm drove approximately 182,000 cubic feet per second of water up the river in the wrong direction. The river reversal caused the Mississippi to crest 10 feet above its previous height in Bella Chasse, Louisiana.

Incredible song, in any case.

Very first piano note. Perhaps it's had its attack edited off, but it sounds damaged/rushed then everything is ok by the time the second note appears. It kind of wobbles.


I don't think it starts late. Echoes take a whale to get to you. You just have to wait for it...
