Huh, you're right. Must be a photoshop limitation.

Reality stops at Frame 19. After that we enter Megan's dream. She dreams that she wakes up, shakes sandman dust from her eyes and the nightmare of frantic activity taking place at glacial speed together with absurd conversations which have become our waking lives plays itself out. We can't figure anything out because it's a sleep induced hallucination.

Psst! Blitzgirl! Psst!

When you get to Page 358, a lot of it has been "rot13'd." Two easy ways to decrypt rot13 text:
1. Cut-and-paste the text into [url]rot13.com[/url] , or
2. if you're using Google Chrome, install the d3coder extension - then you can just highlight the text you want to decrypt, right-click, and pick d3coder -> rot13 decode from the context menu.

Good luck
!

Sorry to say, if BlitzGirl posts every time she encounters her own signposts, she will never reach the end and her infinite quotes will consume the entire internet and eventually the posting and hosting of such quoting will require more energy than the sun provides to the earth (what-if question?).

Either that or she will reach some forum constraint and her quest will be artificially cut short.

I suggest modifying her runtime code to avoid this potential overflow error. What's the gcc parameter for linking to past libraries?

I eye this and I Aye in reply!

But perhaps the title should be Bluromancer? Oh, what the hell -- have both titles. We're up to our armpits in titles and are giving them away like mad!! It's like we're at Crazy Randall's Title Shoppe impending flood liquidation sale! All titles must go!!! No unreasonable-borderline-psychotic offer refused!!!

To hurry along BlitzGirl, we could ask the mods to start deleting1 posts. If they start at post #1 and go upwarths, it should create a sort of "caving in" effect behind BlitzGirl (like in the movies!)that should spur her on to go faster!

If it works and also she makes it, her arrival into the present shall be even more epic!

If she doesn't make it, we might have a Gandalfesque2 moment where BlitzGirl's last post is: "Wait For It, you fools", after which she disappears into a dark abyss, only to return later on in the Thread, shinier, title-ier and also more powerfull then ever!

Foolproof and also Win/Win.

Apparently, it's "hear, hear" because it's a shortened version of "hear him, hear him". You're basically telling everybody to shut up and listen to somebody.

Ah. Now I see.

So it's basically like someone wants everyone to shut up, so they decide to add their own voice to the cacophony, interjecting and chiming in with something that adds nothing to the discussion. And then they wonder why the hell it's not quiet? Right?

Hmmm... There might be some sort of Time-needle-pulling-thread application here... Let's discuss!

Chem, did you just eat M Night Shyamalan and a bunch of fanfiction, then vomit it into the reply box?
Does anybody have any idea of what the hell energy is? It's the thing that, when applied to something, gives itself to the thing so that the thing can expend it, applying it to other things in multiple forms of it. What the hell is it?

You know, I always thought of that as "Hear here!" As in, "Ya'll listen to what I'm sayin' right here!"

I always imagined it to be "here, here", as in: "Agreement comes from over here". (But English is only a second language to me, so...)


(American) English is my native tongue and I thought the same thing for a long time.
