Car keys? Yo-Yo? Notice that it's not just the cricle but also some sort of cord. Or there is something falling of it, snowball would make sense too. Or- is it possible to throw a sandball?

Edit: Oh god, now I know why everyone is talking like this. I thought I'm crazy.
Edit2: Hey, I can barely understand what I just wrote, I'm not a native speaker! :mrgreen:

What would that be? Serving snacks (and therefore service) in public-transport?

Always wait for many TimeFrames then two come along at once.

One of the mods tried to pull that on me, but he obviously is an outsider

"The Outside is either non-existent or unimportant. Time is to be measured in newpic/x/ces, or timeframes. Randall is very important, though due to his creation of Time."

I'm trying to judge the trajectory if it is a snow (S N O W)/sand ball. Just missing queball? Can someone else draw out a better angle of attack?

I've been lurking on this forum from Page 1 reading all the posts. But I just had to work today and could not keep up with forum posts for almost 36 NPs (though I did keep checking the newpix every NP). But now I return to find that the forum is transformed to gobbledegook. And there are unidentified flying objects in the comic.

And that, fellow Time Waiters, is the only reason why I finally registered to the forums.

Please enlighten me, good sirs and madams: What the bleeding hell happened?

What if The Object just goes away in the next TimeFrame?

Edited to add: Also, we have seen the birth of a new culture and religion, now the Reckoning is forcing a mutation of language upon us? Is The Randall essentially playing ForumCiv?

Re-edited to add: delayed ninja'ed by dreiarmumig. Rather meta, actually: wasn't ninja'ed when first posted, but was 10 minutes later when dreiarmumig's message was released by the mods. Time ninja? Dun dun duuuun!

Newpixians just climb over Initiates of Time!

Edit: considering the speed, "rush" would be a better word.

Also my prediction from a few minutes ago, but that comment seems to be held for moderation.
Edit: Not anymore. We'll find out in four minutes.

Common modern usage of that phrase suggests the word you want must be "wife."

Adding to the madness: I've been watching this thread since Monday, unfortunately have skipped huge sections, and finally here to say... what could that ball be? Only another minute to wait I guess.

Snowball. Who throws a sandball?

Also, I've been following this thread since the beginning (skipping the 30+ pages after each night) but I haven't been that active on the forums in general. Could someone please explain this new language (l a n g u a g e, holy crap) shifting? Is this happening automatically? Why?

Didn't you get the memo? We all type like this around here now.

I enjoy finding sentences the forum fails to change.
