April 15th -- the day US Tax payments are due.

Hmmm... Death and Taxes... Time and Death... The Taxing nature of Time...

Thoughts????


Also the morning the Titanic finished sinking, 101 years ago to the day; killing Jack and leaving Rose floating on a huge, frozen door blowing a whistle.
I miss my whistle.


Also the date of Abraham Lincoln's death. So, yes, it is a day for running out of Time.

Edit: fixed the quoting.

Is there a second?


As a long-standing member of the Eastern Unorthodox TimeWaiters and She Who Stands With The Trinity - alone, together... I second the nomination/vote.


Accepted Valarya.

Rise Pope Kryton the first.

After lurking and waiting for it(and Blitzgirl) for 314 pages, I feel it has come time for me to be a part of the Time community.

As my first course of action, I'm going to ask a question:
Why hasn't a dedicated forum been made for Time?

We have Masons now too?

Does that mean that we also have secret Temporal Illuminati pulling strings from behind the scene as well? They must control the Time Pope!


We also have a very quiet and small group of Sand Monks / Sand Druids. Content to simply wait for it, without the machinations and traps the human mind adds to the waiting. Some however choose to remember the transitory nature of all things (especially things made of sand) by the building and destruction of sand mandalas. "Newpix" and "Timeframes" are simply syllables of sound that describe the happening of the true event, and thus we have no great preference to either (they both describe equally well, and equally poorly). All who wish to be one may join, no matter what other groups they may or may not belong to. We welcome all to the journey as we 'wait for it'.



Dude, these are not the druids you're looking for. (Damned Tuskens...)

Woah, I don't think you can just create a new church out of nowhere. We, the [insert church here], have a long established history. Don't make a mockery of this faith. You gotta at least establish the Church before you become something revered to it.


I have to greet this message with dissenting agreement. The Eastern Paradox Church existed before Time and though it fails to exist, it will be there till the end of time.

The coming of BlitzGirl has been foretold to us in the ancient texts that have yet to be written. She will unite the faithful against the evil trolls who slink through the fora seeking the ruin of soles (and laces)

If not for the fact that the pun loses all meaning when typed out, I would say that at the end, a bunch of thyme starts growing around the castle. Or, alternatively, a bunch of thyme is jettisoned from plane that is trying to regain altitude, and destroy the castle.

That said, there is a question I have been waiting far too long to know the answer to:

Please consider that Outsiders will sometimes check the forum, not knowing the deeper meaning of it all. For them, the latest newpix would just be a picture of sand castles. For them, it would even seem strange that people would devote their whole live to the One True Comic.

Please read again what I just said and consider the very meaning of it. It really is a sad truth we will just have to live with. There ARE people who do NOT recognize the Eternal Truth of the One True Comic.

They wouldn't understand the Great Paradox of the River and the Sea even if you showed them the last newpix!

There are so many people who are deprived of The Knowledge. All our Knowledge about the box, the rope, the sealevel, we shouldn't be keeping it a secret! We should SHARE it!

What the One True Comic obviously is trying to tell us: we are just a small river, while there is so much sea! We = river. The sea = the ignorants. See?

Tell all your friends about the Appearances, the Dialogues and the Eternal Rising! Spread the word!

I just legitimately used 'time frame' in an outside context (heresy, I know, there is no Outside), but I had to triple-check that it was actually the correct term. (Final project write-ups using the phrase 'time frames' are ok, 'newpix', probably not.) Hahaha, what has this forum done to me...?

Hmm, quite a mouthful, how about Beautified Oracular Blitzgirl. Or just B.O.B.


Blitzgirl.
B.O.B.
First of the True Followers of Time's time
Most True Followerer
Sister in Waiting
First (and only) Knight of the Knights Temporal
Ghost of PresentPix
Time Architect of Signposts

As a ranking member, which I am not, of The Temporal Illuminati, which doesn't exist, I proclaim Blitzgirl, which I can't, the rank of Red Spiders Eyes, which I will deny, forever and in perpetuity.

We appear to have a little wave ripple action as well.

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??

Looking for BlitzGirl in this list but I can't find her anywhere.

Sorry, that's a really big-ass picture!


Please no. No big ass-pictures, i beg you, just no...
No small ass-pictures either.

I'm pleased my future self refrained from knighting me, and that I instead made my future self a Temporal Rook. And until then, what do I do?

Wait for it...

Does it seem strange that I immediately recognized this as a Hancock air whistle? Here's how they sound in actual service:

I personally prefer the long-bell Hancock 3-chime steam whistle:

Noticing that this is the first occurrence that the list of readers is only one line. There are probably more who have given BlitzGirl a title than there are readers! She deserves them all.

Coma, coma, chameleon.
