Do you think the Creator will take a daypix off, but start up again? perhaps April Fool's daypix? (on the eigth day he rested?) if so, those with auto-updaters should keep them running just in case ...

There should be a contest to select the new pope (and probably first, but not last) I say that the true pope must post pictures proving his/her skill constructing things with some material (preferably sand/snow/coffee etc.) and then add a handwritten note with a reference to the forum for authenticity (it could really be any sort of contest, i just like seeing people spreading the word to outsiders).

I thought the coffee discussion was perfectly logical... there was no reason for it not to be coffee...

Does that make Randall the god of this particular following? Fitting replacement, if so.

*edit* the replacement of 'god' with 'ra'... See diego5wh's sig :-)

There is no clarification yet on the yukky substance in Megan's mouth, but it is the same colour as the trebuchet. So is the trebuchet made of coffee? Coffee is black too.
