Buoyancy?

Buoyancy?

I dont think so, becuase that would reduce the force that these objects impact, and by the destructive force they seem to impart on the castle there is no true slowing of the object.

But the Trebuchet does seem to have some sort of effect on the flow of time, either on the object being launch, causing time to travel more slowly then the rest of the frame around said projectial.

Or it has caused time to speed up between Newpix... This will be intresting to test since we have no access to the universe we are viewing, or anyway to ask them to conduct experiments for us to view.

It hath a little bit of forward momentum, but not much. If I remember my punkin chunkin correctly, it be liable to also come straight down, so the tallest turret be fairly likely.

I should've stuck with my gut instinct.

I be wondered how much damage they can cause whilst I be asleeped. I be expected to misserise the next sixteen or so newpixels.

However, as the magnificent creation that be the Magic Kingdom be destroyed he realises that he gets less joy in creating and that he needs to revert to his former ways and dons the hat once more.
Ah, but couldn't it come from a Things that are on my side for 600, Alex! in the past when BHG have-did a shaved head?

OK, this is getting creepy. Not only is my name Randall, but I'm known for wearing a black hat much like BHG's, even flat on top which is relatively hard to find, and have been for over 2×101 years 350,640 newpix. And, I have a shaved head, but with a couple of weeks' growth now. :shock:
P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.

There has been a general consistancy to to how much time passes, between newpix, and it was estimated in the 3-5min range, but now since the coming of the trebuchet it is down to seconds!

Which must mean the strange black material that occupies the universe we are viewing must be dark-matter. With its high gravitational pull it would cause time to move at a different rate. Hence when they accelerate a chunk of the dark-matter with the trebuchet it lenses time more so do to its higher energy state. This would also explain why the last projectile seemed to grow in size as it temporarily had an event horizon like a black hole.

Read my last post, they are all made out of dark-matter, when he was falling he had a higher energy state and cause a greater lensing of time.

Don't even go there.
Seriously, don't.


8.2 milliseconds...that be an annoyingly small measure of Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!.


Simple: 1 TimeFrame = 395 TimeLines and 1 TimeLine = 553 TimePoints.


I think you misunderstand, 1 n e w p i x is made up of 553 pixcolumns, each made up of 395 pixels.

So I get this

This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 300 character limit.
The field “Signature” is too long, a maximum of 0 characters is allowed.


when trying to edit my sig; is this some limit on members with as few as 3 posts, part of the reckoning or just random glitching?

A bit over half. I reckon I be somewhere in the neighborhood of #739 and I gave mine early on day 2.


Ok, I admit it. I ken not hwæt this internet-giving thing means. :oops:

Basically, you try to collect as many as you can, for no good reason. Don't ask why
you can give me an internet here (for starting the wiki?)

That's possible support for the loopies' prediction. A high tide that then recedes could take care of whatever is left after the trebuchet is finished.

Speaking of which, has anyone wondered how a trebuchet made of sand can be rolled without falling apart? Megan is one great sand-builder!

Ah, the Preview answers the question - The Oracle (Preview) doth translate and interpret my words thusly: "hath anyone wondered how a catapult made of Magic tin be rolled without falling apart?" Magic tin doth be the answer.

As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??
