But doesn't Plutonium catching fire in warm open air? That aught to be a much more impressive boulder trap.


Nah, Sodium (Na) does that.


A Francium Boulder with a pit of water at the end... now thats an idea.


Fracium would unfortunately not last long enough in bulk and plutonium would be a challenge obtaining.


I thought we produce so much in waste we have trouble getting rid of it!

Dear US Dept. of Energy. Do I have an idea for you!

(actually it's a popular experiment in chemistry lessons in western Europe. I guess most people here have seen "Na dancing" at least once).


Never, I've also never dropped a piece into a bottle of coke. You can't prove I did, because there was nothing left of the bottle.

I just had to look that one up. Seems I beat them to this experiment by more than 2 decades, and it was definitely more than a gram.
Also, as previously mentioned, the liquid in question was coke instead of water and the bottle was placed in snow, both of which may or may not have contributed to the effect. Could not find any remnants of the bottle afterwards though (kinda hard to tell with all the snow of course, and the increasing number of curious eyes turning in my direction outside the school entrance). Then again, a coke bottle probably has way less structural integrity than a concrete wall.

I find that the collaboration in frame 42, along with how the incomplete construction emphasizes our waiting makes it one of the best frames. And it is 42, so how could other frames even compete.

Well, since Coke introduced Plastic bottles almost 4 decades ago, and still distributes the smaller ones in glass today, it could be either.

Well, didn't know that. We didn't get the plastic ones here in Norway until the late 80'ies iirc, this was sometime mid 80'ies.

Being just shy of 3 decades old myself, I do not recall plastic as being less common than glass at any point in my life when it comes to soft drinks, so plastic? (damn new posts stalling me to where this content was posted before mine)

Also, what's the deal with heavy handed pepper notes in beers? A bit is fine I guess, but several go way overboard, to the point that if pepper is mentioned, I rarely give the beer a chance.

I personally like 46. It's as the seventh day in certain Outsider religions, when the creators stepped back and looked upon their creation. And thought, "that's neat, let's do some more."

163 is good, too. The cherry on the top of the first castle.

I find the emotional upliftmentation of frame 35 to be the most penultimate, the point at which the first completion and fulfillment of expectations are rendered in such clear detail, the body language and facial expressions so perfect in rapture of achievement, far superior to frame 34 where although the completion of the structure is accomplished, per say, but the body language, the postures lack the framing of satisfaction which is so evermoer present in the 35.
coupled with its rich floral and tobacco undertones, a brief peppery finish, it can only be superceeded by the ultimate conclusive and final end of time frame.

I find that the subtle dark chocolate and cherry notes, as well as the nuances of toast present in frame 37, paired with the striking visual symmetry provide a much more emotionally satisfying impression of repose after a job well done, whereas in the 35 I feel that the downcast pitch of her head evokes a certain sadness; perhaps coming as a result of the completion of her project.


I find that the collaboration in frame 42, along with how the incomplete construction emphasizes our waiting makes it one of the best frames. And it is 42, so how could other frames even compete.

224, in which Cueball and Megan are reunited over the joy of trebuchet-dealt destruction.

*(slippin', slippin') into the future.

About Geohashing, I think someone should use that algorithm to find places where to build Magic Kingdoi.

Perhaps they will accept the introduction of a Magic Kingdoi achievement.

EDIT: Why didn't we use the xkcd wiki instead of wikia?

That one worked, but yes, a definite lack of orcs.

But doesn't Plutonium catching fire in warm open air? That aught to be a much more impressive boulder trap.


Nah, Sodium (Na) does that.


A Francium Boulder with a pit of water at the end... now thats an idea.


Francium has been calculated to be liquid at room temperature.

What if you watch it twice? Or the same video in two frames next to each other?

Cueball must be doing some work lower on the castle, or he sprinted off screen.
Third Option would be BuffyGirl turning him into a "Peanutbutter and Jelly Sandwich"

Or maybe they'll return in 5-25 newpix and continue, like they always have so far.

What is that structure in the middle anyhow? Inquiring minds must know!

Edit: 25 newpix is a long time now, that's for sure.
