I think this has been said at least 5x for both characters. Are you sure you're not projecting?

Of course, it could be a side effect of tossing caffeinated semencancerbaby with a trebuchet.

No, the times between frames w.ere never constant. Remember the scene where Cueball put his toe into the water? Back to base in one n.ewpix. I t.hought either the water was p.retty cold, or he stepped into a tarball (the BP-branded kind).

Well, this is almost what i posted some pages ago. Espacially at the time when they were swimming the time was going faster then at e.g. when Cueball fell, and destroyed parts of the castle.

Megan looks sad

And for once i agree (well, not just this once, but at some point in the meantime, I decided to deliberately interpret it all in an optimistic manner). For this newpic my first thought was "Megan looks sad." I attribute it to her posture (slightly slouched and defeatist-looking) and her hair (with it slightly drooping down on one side).

From what I recall (Usually while reading this thread I go into a half-lucid maddened forumcoma), coffee came about as an alternate interpretation of the liquid in the apparent body of fluid on the right of the panel. Someone else suggested it was semen, and things went on from there.

As well, I think the ice cream came in at around the time of the ice castle heresy.

I am certain this will end in an immense troll.

Oh well. At least we still have our sandcastle.

Really? I'd think it'd be ferrofluid, because of the color.

Also, hey! A catapult! Randall may have read some of this thread!

On a side note, I would imagine there's some overlap between this audience and that of Girl Genius, so I'd just like to point out for that Venn overlap that every tіme I see talk of this Madness upon us, I can't help thinking of Jaegers talking about Sparks, saying "he iz in de mаdness place!"

That is all.
P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.

Yes.. but exactly how immense will it be?

If you figure that your average troll is no taller than a typical suspension bridge, and assuming that the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (no more than 693 ft in height) is typical of suspension bridges, then for a troll to be unusually immense it would have to be taller than the bridge it lives under.. so basically an immense troll would be over 700 ft tall and could easily squash all of the sandcastles over the course of 2 or 3 newpix.

That would be working under the assumption that;
a) Randall actually uses the forums for inspiration
and b) that he didn't pre-make these images and is simply uploading them one by one.
