First of all, don't click the spoiler if you're planning to watch the Sopranos.
He didn't "say" it was anything, but he went out of his way to remark on peregrine falcons, illustrated one, and drew it to look just like the bird he drew for the OTC. If it ain't a peregrine falcon in the OTC, maybe

Tony Soprano is still alive.

What I meant was: Randall says (draws) in the NOC¹ that birds are dinosaurs. Randall drew a bird in the OTC. Ergo, we have a dinosaur, no matter whether it's a peregrine falcon or not.

I doubt he draws one comic just in time for the deadline three times a week. Maybe he had this comic waiting in the wings (ha) and thought it would be funny to bring it out to coincide with the falcon in Time. Or maybe it is important for the puzzle of the OTC that we know what kind of bird it is and the other comic was carefully put there for us. Maybe the falcon in the other comic came first, and then he thought, "hey, why not throw this into Time too?"

I agree with you, I'm not an Omrthisisdefiniteproofthatrandallisreadingtheottists. Your theories sound sensible.

Um, yes. I got sloppy in my excitement. You're right.

I'm surprised a bit at myself. After a month and a half I still really enjoy whole-heartedly advocating hypotheses that will be disproved in a few newpix. I hope this channel for my highly-opinionated-ness is giving a bit of a break to the people in the outside world who usually listen to my bullshit. :)

Well, past tense of the verb ‘wongi’, I assume they mean. Which they suggest means ‘chat’. Which I can't confirm anywhere else.
In any case, /usr/share/dict/american-english-huge (which newpixbot peruses) contains:
Spoiler:
wongi
wongied
wongies
wongiing
which definitely confirms the “past tense of the verb ‘wongi’” bit.

Edit: this. Australian Aboriginal.

That's a very insightful prediction. Image
I'll make a slightly riskier one: within three changes of the ground, we'll get a change of scene. (That is, there'll be a significant change in the landscape, or a change in camera position.)

Not to argue with the rules, but I think mscha's comment was specific to posting the ONG. I am not sure if it's easier for the newpixbot, or the rest of us, but this is a special case. The hourly ONG doesn't exist anywhere else. I think the occasional double post is not horrible, especially if it helps the newpixbot.

You have no idea what "needle-pulled thing" means, do you?
You have much to learn from the elders, young one.

Ok, the needle pulls the thread. That's how I have been reading it. (I have assumed this is from the madness, but I don't really know.)
What I don't understand: How is telling me I don't know this relative to my comment that we may have a valid exception to the double post rule? Am I missing something?

Ok, hush. both of you. I am concerned because maybe this is what the first part of a flame war looks like.

Uhhh, did anyone besides me happen to notice that this reply to a proto-flame-war over double-posting ettiquette was a double-post?

Oh yeah, I remember this game. But that's a lot better resolution than what I remember. I didn't have a fancy Commodore 64 or Amiga or Apple II computer like some of you guys were talking about. The first computer I ever had didn't have memory measured in big-fancy-high-falootin' "k" -- it only had one bit, and I had to share it with the kid next door. The monitor only had one pixel and I had to squint to be able to see that. I could only turn it on for two seconds at a time because the power draw caused the lights for the entire neighborhood to dim.

And I liked it!

Absolutely. My sins of heresy are deeply regretted and clearly the result of heathen influences overwhelming my own feeble and weak inner nature. Ultimately, I think it's obvious that society itself is to blame, and what is society is but a product of all those who collectively inhabit it?

Hmm, posting the Other Comic in the OTT, isn't that heresy? If it were anyone but BlitzGirl doing it, I'd say yes. But it was the one and only BlitzGirl, ruler of the OTT1, so I must be mistaken. Image

¹: that's a lie

FTFY. Although if the posting of Other Comics is heresy, I've been in trouble ever since Boom De Yada...

I don't consider myself a ROOTTist (Randall Observes the OTT), but #1211 is too perfect to be sheer coincidence. I will suggest that #1211 has been prepared for some Time, perhaps even since the early newpix of the OTT when many thread-dwellers hoped for a raptor-attack, and was released to coincide with the appearance of the sparrow-raptor in Time.
