Anyone feel like doing a recap of the last 224 pages so he is not forced to BlitzGirl?

Wait, what is a BlitzGirl? It sounds ominous...


Oh my Randall he's been gone so long he doesn't know who Blitzgirl is. Welcome back, Helper!

Blitzgirl, the party, the Fading, the bags, the loops and now Helper. It's all too too much. *faints* I think we replaced Helper with Blitzgirl as Pope/Mome/Pome since we thought he'd been lost in a Time Vortex. But I follow a different TW religion and cannot speak to it.

I had a theory that at some point, if we went back to the Click-n-Drag comic, we might fight a sandcastle on that little island. It's just a tiny tiny hope of mine. Smaller than the river.

Well, the sixth message of the OTT was quite presuming it.

Maybe they just talked about something, something important perhaps. Maybe they're content just to sit there, together in silence. Watching time happen.

Somehow, I feel that this is the strongest xkcd yet. It's in my head.

And that was during the very first newpix.

Why can't there be a Pope and a Mome simultaneously?

Well since they both popped out of a Time Vortex and might be the two most talked about people in the past 200 newpages, why not?! Helper predicted the bags by his avatar. Blitzgirl predicted the coming of La Petite with her avatar. Kinda perfect, innit?

You know what would be really cool would be a new version of Click-n-Drag that had all 1200 of XKCD's comics in it. would be quite big I think to fit them all in. Would be real easy to just dump the original comics all together in their original state but thats not what i'm talking about really. More like a whole world where everything in it is scenes from each of the comics. each one probably altered a bit to fit the landscape etc.

Sure, then they can have little ankle-presbyters running around. (Would they need ponti-training?)

Hmm. Guess I brought it.

I've become quite good at F6 Ctrl-Z Enter F6 Ctrl-Z Enter repeat ad-infinitum1 :D

Blitzgirl: Your "We love the Time Thread" comic is the best thing I'm likely to see today, and it's only just 10am. Fantastic.

Thanks, BlitzGirl, for "We Love the Thread of Time". It makes me wish I had posted more, so that I would appear to be "still-active"! Of course, I just adopted an avatar and I don't have a hat, but I am not a lurker!

You need a good slappin' dose of the Book of Aubron. And bags are nothing like the semencaffeinatedbaconcancerbabies.

edit: is he stunned speechless by the happenings of Time in his absence? Come back, Helper! we'll help you cope.
