Sigh. Thou Shalt not subdivide newpix. It do be commandment #X-32+Y.

I shall explain: Each frame of Time is 1 Time Frame. It is a static moment in Time. The time between two Time Frames is measured as 1 Newpix (NP). One can was, "I stepped away for 1/2 a NP and suddenly we have a religion?" and mean that they were gone for approximately half the time it would take to transition from 1 Time Frame to a new Time Frame, which would be 1 NP. However, if the Time Frame changes, regardless of how much time has passed in the Outside world (outside of Time), then it's still 1NP. There is no exact direct correlation between the passage of Time (or time in Time) and standard measurements of time in the Outside world.

[past-azule]

Still stuck in the fucking past! Looks like the forums have started to fılter just to fuck with this threªd. It ıs making it really hard to catch up and still enjoy this comic (but really, this forum's posts). Maybe the creator ıs jealous of the enjoyment we ªre getting, basically, without his "precious". *shrug* Maybe admin/mods just hate us, well, future yous. Whªt the fuck you guys do? LOL! Maybe none of this ıs related.

Yeah, considering not even continuing from this point on [@ frame 177; posting 1080]. Sucking the joy out of things should be the job of trolls and off-topic ranters, not officials. *sigh*

Hang on, whut? A Welsh speaker in a timezone where it be night? Unless this be another example of the RECKONING and there be a welsh-speaking mod around?
I don't recall any of the mods being able to Welsh.

While I may be mistaken, that is no filter. That person's Welshier than Welshy. And he was Welsh.

Megan will bed replace by a younger woman to attract more young viewers. This to satisfy the sponsors.
Or she will be back to punish Cueball for his recurring destructions.

Sigh. Thou Shalt not subdivide newpix. It do be commandment #X-32+Y.

I shall explain: Each frame of Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! be 1 Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! Frame. It be a static moment in Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!‽ The Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! between two Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! Frames be measured as 1 Newpix (NP)‽ One tin be-did, "I stepped away for 1/2 a NP and suddenly we have a religion?" and mean that they be-did go-done for approximately half the Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! it woll-did take to transition from 1 Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! Frame to a new Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! Frame, which woll-did be 1 NP. However, if the Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! Frame changes, regardless of how much Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! has passed in the Outside world (outside of Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!), then it be still 1NP. There be no exact direct correlation between the passage of Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! (or Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! in Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!) and standard measurements of Things that be on my side for 600, Alex! in the Outside world.


All be now clear as mud.

Just replace "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!" with the word T-I-M-E. Do try and keep up :D


I know haha, I was just remarking about the beautiful work done on the post by the gods' noble efforts.

I seem to have gotten some wordy-writey-meaning-conveying-wibbly-wobbly gunk stuck in my head the wrong way, and I'm not sure if I can communicate with your religion any longer. I'll just sit here banging on my head until things clear up.

Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

This morning I installed a Chrome extension that slowly immerses you in a new l_angu_age_ by replacing random words with words from one you want to learn.

Then I came here this morning to get caught up and the entire lingo of this t_hread seems to have gone haywire.

I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why the extension went bonkers, until thankfully I saw your p_o_s_t confirming that no, it's not the browser, it's the people! The Mods Must Be Crazy! ;)

Oy.

I'm increasingly sure that things do not advance unless Megan is present in the frame. When she is not, things do not advance beyond her last appearance: at most they change somewhat (or move backwards, then advance to something similar to her departure state).

Also, did The Object change size at all during the two frames it was visible? If so, it may be coming from an angle, rather than directly to one side.
