Thanks, Your Holiness!
Also, due to ESE (Extremely Slow Editing) and SC[G]WTAN (Seeing Characters [Gadget] Where There Are None), I went back and edited the post to which you replied so now that post doesn't exist and now I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT..... My turn to break the OTT.
But you're still Your Holiness.
PD, though???
Generally clueless today. Will go back to happily riding in the back seat with my head out the window, tongue lolling in the breeze.

Strangely sea-ish Image for some reason, even though there weren't any more NPs than usual...

This.

I guess I created resistance towards the OTC. Bakc at the start, I looked with amazement "oh my sucking molpidog, the images aren't identical, there's a pixel change!! Get the images comparisons!"

Now there's a molpython running around in the ground, talking animals (they're chirps, obviously. They can only say their names, like in Pokémon), interaction with Megball and Cuegan with them, a bird feeding its offspring.

All that is very eventful and my old self would jump in joy and be amazed.

My present self just says "meh" and wonders why, with all the power Randall has (seriously, some people worship Great Lord Randall because, he not only has the power to change the characters' lives on the OTC, he's literally, creating their lives), why can't we get stuff like this? Seems like wasted effort and resources.

The OTT on the other hand remains as strong as ever!

It may sometimes seem slow and boring but I think that's a part of what keeps it so compelling. Even though on the surface it appears to be a simple, idyllic story of sandcastles and a pleasant walk, it's full of mysteries that are only subtly, tantalisingly hinted at throughout: Why they know so little of the world, who is LaPetite and what is she doing, the strange markings on the tree... and the fact it's all being revealed so slowly and that most of it is just simple, idyllic pleasantness is what keeps it so interesting, weird and gripping and keeps us "waiting for it".

Damnit. I tend to avoid clicking on all TVTropes links, but yours got me b/c there was no warning. :? And it reminded me of how much fun it is, when someone is trying to ask if the punchline is correct, to whip out this video in response.

Sorry for lack of warning, but that's why you should mouse over links before clicking them! ;) And yes, I love using that clip too, or referencing Fouad from Family Guy.

40. I counted when figuring out when I had to post to do my Newpage of the Beast thing :P

charlie_grumbles wrote:Since we are only a few here at the moment, I thought I'd entertain you with a puzzle.
Spoiler:
A man in desert nomadic lands was once quite rich, but died owning only 23 camels (camelMolpies). He had three sons and his will directed that the first son should receive half of his camels, the second one-third and the last son one-eigth of the camels.

The law was very strict in those days and the sons also wanted to honor their father's wishes without "dividing" any of the individual camels.

They searched long and hard for a solution, without success.

A wise person rode into their village on a camel and helped them find the answer. Are you that wise person?

Reading later in the thread I see this has been answered (grr) but I figured it out myself (quite easily) before reading ahead so will still post it...
Spoiler:
the wise person's extra camel makes 24 - so 12 (half) +8 (third) +3 (eighth) = 23. Then the wise person takes back his own camel.


Exodies wrote:This reminds me of a question I wanted to ask y'all of youse. Does anyone here know anyone else here irl? Do you think you would enjoy <this> more or less if your real life friends were here?

Nope... I think one of my friends sometimes posts on the xkcd forums but haven't seen any sign of him in the OTT... If anyone I know does find me here, most people think I'm pretty weird anyway, I'm sure if they saw this thread and found me here their belief would simply be reaffirmed :P. That is, if they figure out it's me though... I only use this avatar here, but I use this name in other places... I suppose if anyone took the time to listen to the various songs I've posted they might recognise my voice :P ...hey, that makes me realise, I'm probably one of the only OTTers whose actual voice people have heard! Only other one I can think of is jovialbard with his BlitzGirl song from way way back...
I was also thinking earlier how cool it would be to actually meet people from here in real life the heretical outside world :D

You mean like this? This is pretty good, too.

Not a movie, but this is reminding me of a Portal themed rollercoaster I once designed. It was an indoor ride making use of duplicate rooms to make it seem like the cars were flying through portals and various other cool effects. And throughout the queue line riders would be introduced to the world and the idea that they're "test subjects". It was pretty awesome. If only I had awesome skills in RCT3 or something to make it...

I typically always, always, hover and check the URL before clicking. But with the context of "IT'S A TRAP!" I, for some reason, thought it was going to be another funny picture. Learned my lesson there. ;)

Dear PPDCG,
I have been libelously misquoted. You left out the far more important half: more punishment, please. We heretics deserve to be pelted with awful, awful chocolate and to be forced into a comfy, comfy chair to contemplate our sins.

That's another USA vs. The World argument we used to have: who has the best chocolate? Just couldn't defend US mass-produced chocolate, except for Nestle's chocolate chips for cookies.
(I did bake chocolate chip cookies (Nestle's) for my husband's co-workers when we lived in London; he said they loved them, I said they were sucking up to him b/c he was the boss. He made a VERY sad face and said, ".... is that why they've been laughing at my jokes? - and here I was thinking I was getting funnier!")

I like the chocolates I found in Bruges; and there's a nice little chocolate shop in Santa Fe. Mmm, chile and chocolate............

Or maybe it's just an ASCII shift-code for some Whitespace code. I'm not sure.

Not seeing it, but then, I've never found those things convincing. They're just a conspiracy between those with roughly matched binocular vision. It's always a sailboat, bit suspicious that. :wink:

The Brits have some strange taste. Witness Full English Breakfast with fried?? tomatoes. But I'll give a shout-out to Stilton. Yumm. Preferably old an stinky.

The Cadbury ref was gratuitous, I realize, since there are many here from the Isles. But anything less than strong dark chocolate loses something in the translation from the Brazilian. But chills in chocolate. YES.

lessee now: "I likes my women like I likes my chocolate: strong, dark, and spicy"

ETA there is a movie by Dušan Makavejev called Chocolate "Sweet Movie" that is hard to find on You Tube. Not for the "pure" of heart, though. Bit NSFW. Tasteful though. :twisted:

I could get some Cadbury's if I wanted to, but if we're going by mass production Galaxy is great. If we're going by shops, Thorntons is okay but Hotel Chocolat rules. I wish there were a Hotel Chocolat near to where I live.

I've never had Belgian chocolate. If I ever get the chance then I'll probably take it willingly. As long as it hasn't got nuts in. I hate nuts.

I see three vertical lines, some diagonals below that? I am seriously bad at 3D images. I can't do cross-eyed, I can't do stare straight ahead. *shrug* I can actually see a 3D movie in 3D, with those polarised glasses, a fact I didn't realise until I was unable to track down a 2D showing of the Hobbit.i Bi-colour 3D glasses just give me a headache.

iYeah, I'm slow to see movies. Still haven't seen the latest Star Trek and I think there's a new Iron Man thing also?

Ouch, you hit my sore spot! I'm afraid I have to disagree. Belgium has decent chocolate, but their marketing is decidedly better than the product itself, which is quite far from the best. I have tried quite a lot of different brands and my conclusion is this: Switzerland has quite good chocolate (I can recommend Felchlin), but the king is clearly France. Michel Cluizel is rather good, but the one that consistently beats any other brand with ease is Valrhona. Particularly their Single estate brands, but all their chocolate is without equal.

Please not that I'm talking about pure (dark) chocolate here, not pralines.

Hard to argue with the choices. But I find Valrhona a bit too "waxy". It is too perfect. For looking at and admiring, not for eating. It's in the tempering, I think. But if I were making chocolate volcano cakes and had nothing but Valrhona.... Well watch it (and me) erupt.
