Sorry, dude, that ship has sailed. It's past Valinor and about to reach Mordor's east coast by now.


You're assuming a round Middle-Earth here, I've seen no evidence to back up that hypothesis.

Well, my GIF program has a delay, originally, it was set to '100' then upon a redditor's request I made it '10'. But that seems too fast. I've made a compromise at '45' now.
Let me know if this isn't (fast/slow) enough:

EDIT: Alternatively, I can artificially make the dialog slower by adding in more copies of that frame, please let me know, I want to make this GIF the best GIF possible.

Looking back, it was a mere 6 posts in that people started speculating morbidly about the meaning of this comic. And about babies. Come to think of it, this post probably set the mood for a good 60% of the thread.

That's perfect. It's almost as if you channelled Lord Randall himself. The only way that could be better is with a slight delay on the text frames for readability, but then all should have studied the scripture of Time thoroughly enough that it isn't necessary.

But Cueball left first, and was gone for a while before she did.

Who is to say that he didn't start the second castle? Just because he said "Bye" doesn't mean he left the beach altogether. Maybe he was just letting her know that he was going "over there" for a bit.

Given his building speed (or rather, utter lack thereof) in the scenes where we do see him at work, I say it's highly unlikely that the second castle is Cueball's work. I think the "later/bye" scene contrasted with Megan just disappearing without so much as a word means exactly what it seems to mean: when Cueball left, he actually left, but when Megan "left", she just moved a few feet further inland... and proceeded to build another castle, at approximately the same speed as we had just seen her construct the first one.


As someone else pointed out, he did say "Later." She said "Bye!" I submit a perfectly logical reply given the scenario I presented. Megan not saying anything when she left to work on the second castle isn't inconsistent - once the second castle was started, there was no longer any need to verbally indicate she was moving to work on that structure. Their shared space had already expanded, and it would have been obvious to Cueball where she was going.

I'm not suggesting it was entirely his work - she clearly worked on it before we saw it. Perhaps he is just a little more ambitious than she is, even if he doesn't work as fast as she does.

I think a more suitable line for him, if he indeed actually left the beach, would have been "I'll be back later!" She showed absolutely no surprise at his return, and didn't greet him in any way, which suggests to me that he didn't actually leave her sight.

Cueball must have been the one to lay the foundation of the second castle... and I for one just can't give credit for his vision to another!!

As far as the names go, I think they are getting a little too clever. "Waiters" sounds nice to me!

Not sure what you mean. At the time I type this, there are 1219 threads in this forum including a total of 154,295 posts - an average of about 126 per thread, meaning the average thread has about .08 percent (not 8 percent, but .08 percent) of the total posts in the forum. EDIT: nevermind, I misread your post. We are in agreement. :) But it's closer to 40 times the average, but that's of threads, I guess it gets smaller if you include comics that don't have threads dedicated to them.

So many amazing quotes, so little room in 300 characters!

I've probably spent a good ten newpix trying to catch up on the posts on this thread.

I'm anticipating being ninja'd so not going to attempt to post the picture, but he flattened out the next tower :D

Oh, great, Cueball's constructing a bridge! That'll take centuries and still collapse when the little asswad is done.

Oh well. At least we still have our sandcastle.

Let me know if this isn't (fast/slow) enough:


That's perfect. It's almost as if you channelled Lord Randall himself. The only way that could be better is with a slight delay on the text frames for readability, but then all should have studied the scripture of Time thoroughly enough that it isn't necessary.

That would be easy enough to do. Just set up the .gif with two or three copies of each text frame.
But then it migt not be able to auto-update...

I'll try it out with three copies of the dialogs for clarity. the auto-update wont be affected.
update:

Nice job! That's perfect!

out f the ~200 people currently int the thread, that's nt too terribly odd. we're Waiting; it helps to have distractions.

I should really turn ff my laptop and go to sleep now...

With spelling like that, it might be a good idea.

due to an incident involving toast, the 'O' key on my keyboard only presses 2/3 times.... usually I fix my typos... but sleep....
P.S. I am not Randall. I am an initiate of Time. All is measured by the passage of the Newpix.

I feel that might be a good idea. What did Cueball do to deserve such ire?
Madness takes its toll, please have exact change.

I wonder, have Cueball and Megan been at the beach all this time? How long is all this Time? Did they bring something to snack on?

Of course, if it's a coffee beach then the point is moot.
