Well, it looks like it's time to dig out ye olde* Anglo-Saxon Primer, just in case they throw something too obscure for me at us.

* Yes, I know what a dirty pedigree that phrase has, and I occasionally use it anyway.

How difficult is it to figure out rough measurements of the width and height of the structures? Because someone may have way to much time on their hands on a nice day this weekend and try and replicate this structure IRL. Also, the measurements might be a nice addition to the wiki.

When did Time Waiters got up to 56 votes?
Wait, now it's 59. How on Earth...
Now 61...

And bump to the poll if you don't know what I'm talking about.

I think Cueball is holding a flag but he's hesitant to place it. It's the finishing touch on the only section of the castles that he has built entirely by himself. What would that mean if he finishes the bridge alone without Megan? I don't think he really wants to - but he might. Closure?

You'd have to standardize Cueball's/Megan's heights, and describe what kinds of 3D structures you'd need in the back, but other than that, I suppose you could.

Hmm, it seems even google translate considers Time Waiters to be servers at the end of the galaxy (at least servers)...

Edit: servers as in restaurant servers, not as in servers on a network...

:D Love Google translate and their competitors. I wouldnever have associated waiters as we use it here with the waiters in a restaurant. The Dutch word "ober" has only that second meaning.

Either way would take quite a while, as I still have to sing the alphabet song while counting on my fingers. I need a chart.

Cueball is planning the second addition to his/our Tower of Babel.

Also if we are to be called the Time Waiters, what will the knights/guards be called? Bus boys? Someone who can clean up a mess in time, so to speak.

edit: bloody hell, this really is the Tower of Babel - I can barely understand my own posts
