If he does, it will prove us Iceists were right all along. Still leaves the coffee/hot springs question unanswered though.

No. Pork soda. there was a lot of speculation about bacon earlier, after all...

Obviously it's cheese covered semencaffeinebacon mixed with soda. possibly cola.

Ok, I've lurked but definitely haven't read every one of the 9000+ replies here...

Has it occurred to anybody that the doubling of the time interval after 5 days might be repeating? That is, after the 10th day (midnight tonight, right?) we may be getting newpix only every 2 hours? After the 15th only every 4 hours, etc? Randall could have a complete series of about 500 drawings that would effectively stretch out to the end of Time... after another month the newpix interval would be more than 5 days though, not sure how he'd handle that...

It may be off topic to comment on the One True Comic, but in the current Frame (350) it looks like Cueball is sitting in lotus position and waiting for it.

I'm sure it's just a transitional frame in his construction of the central structure...

Nice. May I suggest to change the time frame interval from 50/100/150/... to 48/96/144/.. newpix? For it would be closer to the Outside sun/moon phases. For the True Believers In the Time Yet To Come it would make no difference, but to us who have to chit chat with People From Outside it may be of advantage.


Excellent suggestion. Done. Now outsider days and night cycles appear more obviously.

Your Outsider Time measurements are a little fuzzy to me, but for us Timewaiters, it would eventually call for the use of cryogenic sleep coma chambers in-between NewPix...

Fracium would unfortunately not last long enough in bulk and plutonium would be a challenge obtaining.

The density of the uranium would be hard to beat, plus all the extra radioactivity. I recommend a solid core of uranium with a jacket of a few inches of rubidium.

I, too, dement every firsthand experience with Sodium. I've never seen it dance on a water surface, never seen the oxyhydrogen explosion tear the molten sodium ball into flying pieces.

*does not blink even once*

Yeah, that is so. Or even better, just before the holidays we always played "naval battle": big bowl of water, folding paper boats, Na pieces in it, and then, of course: Wait for it.


Recently I waited at the supermarket checkout, and listened to the people behind me talking, 2 boys and a girl around 18. I almost tilted when one of the boys explained why he only buys water with very little Na - just because oft this experiment he once saw in his chemical lessons!

Fighting an irresistable urge to connesour...ergh...graagh...

I find the emotional upliftmentation of frame 35 to be the most penultimate, the point at which the first completion and fulfillment of expectations are rendered in such clear detail, the body language and facial expressions so perfect in rapture of achievement, far superior to frame 34 where although the completion of the structure is accomplished, per say, but the body language, the postures lack the framing of satisfaction which is so evermoer present in the 35.
coupled with its rich floral and tobacco undertones, a brief peppery finish, it can only be superceeded by the ultimate conclusive and final end of time frame.
