Clearly I am temporally befuddled.

Time to coma.

Remember when we used to reminisce about the sandcastles? Ah, those were the days.

Spoiler:
In Time we heed certain creeds: the sea is big
Revealed by our prophets: the river is small
Cuegan's brief rare dialogues: the tree is neat
Recorded, hid in footnotes: the fire is old
Mystic exposition: empty, beautiful
And of course lord Randall's own words: wait for it

When I first stumbled all alone into It
A panel as per thrice a week, nothing big
Two folk on a beach, so zen and beautiful
Left it alone thinking it something small
Returned later and saw not panel of old
An oh so slow changing image, I thought 'Neat'

Curious about the rules of all things neat
I wiki'd and found a religion 'bout it
In needle pulled form, 400 pages old
I feared to blitz, for time was scarce, pages big
I joined in, threw in my voice, though it is small
I could not bypass something so beautiful

I Learned the terms, the mad tongue so beautiful
I met the folk so kind, funny and neat
Hunted for the molpy, secretive and small
The varied creation pile, I fed some to it
Speculated heresy, theories big
For food I gave sorbet to replace the old

If time ended I could not go back to the old
I've changed, witnessing this thing so beautiful
I can't undrink from the salty sea so big
I forever shall regard the trees as neat
There's double meaning when I say wait for it
The man I was pre-OTT was someone small

Outside now throws my way many matters small
Narnia style, will I one day grow too old?
Ok, that worry's senseless, do it ignore it
Have faith that OTC's forever beautiful
Believe in GLR, science-god so neat
He knows what he's doing like the trees so big

~It needs small words , sestina the beautiful
I'm a whole six stanzas old, and its still neat
Though I'm tired of it's 39 lines; so big~

Well, there you have it. Very melodramatic, as many poems are. Coma time for me now. Have fun


Forgot to say how -- to use a poetic, literary term -- KICK-AZZ!!! your sestina was!!!

Amazing! :D

We're making the posts themselves more important than the information they contain. That's a good way to get a thread locked and users banned.

My own view is that we are like a local cafe at which a bunch of diverse people periodically gather, brought together by a single common interest. However, we also form, un-form, and reform small groups in which to discuss "stuff" that may be not particularly germane to the reason we gathered. But we all have fun and are (up to now, at least) respectful of one another. There are a lot of sub-threads in the OTT, but that is cool. I'm happy to chill when things are discussed in which I have no particular interest.

As I've said elsewhere here, the creativity shown here, in many dimensions, is pretty incredible. Value it (screamed little Fluffy in the background). :twisted:

XonqNopp wrote:Ok, Time for new guess... The picture from Andranomena Reserve suggests that they are there, which is on the island of Madagascar. After looking at the map for a while, we can suppose that they started their trip from the manambolo river (which may be dry at the end in the OTC) and they came to the Tsiribihina river, which according to wikipedia french (english article is very poor) means "where we do not dive" because it is full of crocodiles... Which would explain why they did not try to catch the sock back although they know to swim... It also says that this river is *very* wide (1km at some points) and its delta is 50km wide...

Since we never could determine how much Time was between each frame (and if this value was constant), it is possible that they came to the bridge over the latter river and we did not see it in the OTC... And then they continued their trip along the coast, going a little downhill without we caught up with them again... Who knows what happens between each newpix... And now between the baobabs...

If my supposition is right, they should soon approach the Morondava river (assuming they continue along the coast)... Wait for it. :mrgreen:

But... the problem is the earth profile... This part of Madagascar seems fairly flat...

All this is assuming that Lord Randall is drawing from a scene of the realm... Which is not granted!

Note: I did note check the length... If someone wants to do it, feel free :D

Excellent analysis! I never thought that the river could be dangerous because crocodiles. I disagree that they found a bridge, and in fact I don't see a bridge until another ~60 miles inland where highway 34 crosses the Tsiribihina.

Hear hear!!! Fatness, I feel the exact same way, particularly about the "you all get way over my head" part. I love to read it all, even (and maybe especially) when I have no clue; I'm taking it all in and, like you, trying to learn a bit here and there.

I think most serious discussion is rude. (How dare you!) But, seriously, our focus should be distributed accordingly amongst all our awesome users. I wouldn't go so far as to say we should only "worship" the OTC, because the OTT, while it might be meta, is just as much a work of creation and hard work. I think we have a pretty good balance. The "obsession" (maybe not the best word) with certain users (not just BlitzGirl) is probably a natural symptom of any society, but since we're all (sorta) mature we should try to get past that awkward stage. :)

in a buzz of bug-bee flyers


Who's next?

StratPlayer, I like the poetry, but it doesn't seem to reflect the original. Of course, I'm not sure how I'd adapt the quest in the OTC to the quest in Jaberwocky...


Oh, sorry. I didn't realize that we were going for a poetry-parody. If it would balance it out better, my verse can certainly be removed in order to better achieve poetry-parody-parity.

Which? The Google street view guy, or my earlier post indicating that I know what cities y'all are hitting my site from? :mrgreen:

    'Twas midday, and the molpymurs
    Did dig and tunnel in the ground
    All flighty were the raptorbirds,
    And the beesnakes did abound.
Next verse?


OK, I'll give it a go:

The baobab trees, tall and bent;
Towering wooden, leaf-topped spires
(with odd markings!) -- they'd came and went,
in a buzz of bug-bee flyers

As long as it includes a snickers snack, and a vorpal trebuchet, we are good.
