There's so many of you people. Either you feel open to share it here and there's actually lots of you in the population, or it's a geek-type thing.

I don't think I have any of this stuff, but I do like blue or pink drinks. I like it because it's pink...if it wasn't I'm not sure I'd have any interest in the drink (as they're really nothing special).

La Petite More:

Put our sand inside your hand
You should not destroy our land
You feel it? Can you feel it?
Trebuchets; destroying spheres
Save those things 'til we are here
You hear that? Where are you at?

PRE-CHORUS:
When you come (Into the frame)
Hold your pose (Make it last long)
Mystery (And she's called)
Li'l Beret Girl

CHORUS:
So please, When I sleep could you scream?
"Wake up, Wake up and see me!"
It's true What they say, there's no more
She might be the last camper's young
So please, When you go make it slow
I might, Make you take a photo
It's true, What they say, there's no more
La Petite's the last camper's young

Pull that wooden thing some more
Show us what you have in store
Mystery? What can it be?
People just saw #fff
Others shouting what the eff?!
What was that? I need to know what

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Hum. Input for Time Raptor - the Movie .

A raptor is brought into our time via time machine. But not from the past, but from the future (where a weird and nasty black hatted scientist (because it works, bitches) cloned a raptor from the DNA of an amber enclosed molpymosquito molpquito red spider).

Current plot for our heroes: Waiting for time machine cpu time; (1) retrieving a raptor infecting flu virus from the past, (2) retrieving the blatt hatted scientist from the future and sending aforementioned scientist even more into the future. Just to be sure.

The Boston Pops tunes to A=444. Rumor has it that according to them, it makes a brighter, happier, "poppier" sound.

Modern tunings have been on the rise.

And there are some grumblings about the stress that added tension puts on older (string) instruments. Pretty soon "A" is going to sound more like "Bb" (or "B" to you German musicians :) ). Heck, might as well tune the orchestra down to 438 and then run the entire audio stream through a pitch-shifting algorithm :evil:

Not sure it's a bug. Here is the history, I think. You posted the old np. We were both working quickly. I prepared the new one and saw when I hit submit that you had posted the old. So I hit submit again. At that point we were both visible, but your post showed one edit had been made, meaning my post went up before your edit (otherwise the system is silent about edits). Then you graciously fixed the issue by spoilering your image. So you now show 2 edits. Mine shows one since in added the "wrong pic" notice.

I don't see it as a problem and if I hadn't seen that you had edited after my submission, I'd have deleted my post. Good to be quick (mscha lurks), but you gotta be right. Thanks for withdrawing.

I had to check if newpixbot had spontaneously evolved to do the same thing we do – ONGify non-ONG-words. It hadn't. (I learned a new word today!)
Instead, it looks like newpixbot was commenting on the slow pace of action. Just wait for it, newpixbot, just like the rest of us.

Despite my vow of silence@, I have still been reading this needle-pulled thing occasionally, although I'm sure I have missed quite alot too.
I was going to wait until after newpic 1800, however I think this works better if I post it now:

Love this!! :mrgreen:

And thank you for breaking your vow of silence and joining us. You can still be silent, if you want, but feel free to jump in anytime. I often sit in the back of the cave, in silence, contemplating those things which need contemplating, until I feel some need to join the fray.

Don't judge, I know someone who let her friend Catherine get brain freeze from ice cream. :(


I was going to ask if you were certain your cat was sneezing due to sugar, and not just mimicking your kids*, but it sounds like you have pretty strong anecdotal evidence.

Ouch, poor cat with brain freeze. I'm curious, how did she know it had brain freeze?

* My parents' cat mimics their sneezing, so there's precedent. (It's hilarious, in part because it sounds fake, as it should, and because the cat is usually half-asleep when it does it, because the real sneeze woke it.)

The only thing I don't like about the bot is that it doesn't give other people the chance to show their creativity in 'ONG' words. Maybe somebody here has been thinking 'Oooh, I can't wait till I get to be the one to post an ONG! WOLLONGONG is going to kill!' and is now put out by the robot overlong.
