Indeed. My first act as Pope of Newpage 779 is to declare that the river is small.

Actually, no. Keep up the good work of the molpy hunt and the animations. Well done, sir. (Or madam. Which ever flavor you prefer).

Edit: though, of course, the very fact that it is named "lowland" is a problem given that Cuegan is walking in some kind of highlands.
Edit2: Range described as "Found in lowland and mid-altitude rainforests and scrubland"
Edit3: Ok, there is actually also a Highland Streaked Tenrec that also chirps and lives in the central upland areas.

I hereby present, to evaluation of my fellow Time Waiters, The Ballad of Ace LaPetite, to the tune of David Bowie's
The Man Who Sold the World wrote:We took a sip of air, by then I was prepared
I climbed over the edge, and then I saw a snake
Which came as some surprise; it spoke into my eyes
"You should have died alone, a long long time ago"

Oh no! Maybe.
Only Lord Randall knows
Or La Petite
With our heads in a roll

I fell and hit Me-gan; we tried to figure out
Which kind of snake it was; but that we didn't know
We went and turned left; she tried to climb again
No snakes we found so far, but maybe we are wrong

Oh no! Maybe
Only the Great Lord knows
When this will end
Or forever it'll become

(Yes, it's the second time I work on this song.)

Blindposting from 767: I'm not ketchuping tonight because in half a dix I'll be on a pilgrimage to ascend a mountain, in a non symbolic way (effected not by composing verse, posting, or reading of the One True Thread but by the movement of [no-longer-heretical] feet). My mountain will be devoid of baobabs, but might be similar in slopiness and scrambliness (though hopefully not snakiness) to what Megan and Cueball might have ascended or be ascending by now.

In the meantime, a new (less literal) way to pilgrimage through Time has occurred to me. I'll begin that project when (and if) I return. Best wishes to all!

Good luck on your ascent! Be safe! And try not to tumble on the way down.

Those chirps. They are small, indeed, but it is known that many feathered dinosaurs are quite small. Based on their relative size to Cuegan, I might suggest that it be a Molparrow.

Yeah, the filtering is not intelligent. Basically only looking to see if the image URL contains 'smiley' or 'emoticon'. Not sure how to improve without actually analyzing the image sizes.

Well, You weren't off by far--we all know that T-rex is a close relative of the modern Molpyraptor. Only seperated by newpix. lots, and lots, and lots of newpix. So many newpix, that if you piled them on top of one another in a room, you could start using a system where you keep track of the number of piles rather than individual newpix. and possibly so many that you would have to keep track of the number of piles using piles which have to be kept track of as a number, recursivly. It's quite a few yips, is what I'm saying.

Or, you could tally them on a piece of paper, then start tallying the number of pieces of paper you fill, then start tallying those too...

Well. You would need a system to keep track of which tallies stood for which. Is it 569 billion newpix or 569 million or 569,000? Can't keep all this paper straight *shuffles around in seabig of paper*

I want to post something, just so something will be posted, but I can't come up with any content.
I can't even just post pictures of food because I'm on my phone and can't get image urls! (Can't dong, neither. :cry: )
I guess I'll just say hello. How is everyone?
I made my avatar, Buffygirl hatted it, Yappo smileyed it and ggh taroted it!
I've changed, witnessing this thing so beautiful

Good luck on blitzing, katakissa, username5243, musthavebeenmykarma, iskinner, thunk, GnomeAnne, and quantized ! Keep the signposts coming, we love em in the now!

So, are we going to speculate about the ending for the 6th time?


Obviously. What else are we here for?


Nobody really seems to believe that Time is about to End, this time. And that's what worries me: every time we do think it's going to end, it doesn't…


So, we just need to make sure at least one person is always worried that it's about to End, and that'll keep it from Ending. Right? Right?


Right! Because when you least expect it, that's when it'll happen. So we should always inspect our expectations to accept that the unexpected should not be an exception to our expected unexpectedness, except when it's accepted for inspection of our expectations, don't you think?


I read this out loud a few times, because it's so fun to say!


I witnessed the consecration of Selcouth and PhoenixRising as BlitzGirl the Next:

Act 1, scene 1

There are the sounds of trumpets. The lights come on to reveal the courtyard of a mighty castle. Banners are hung, torches are lit, and final preparations are hurriedly being made for the arrival of One who is Most Esteemed. The trumpets sound again in fanfare as the carpet, of deepest red, is rolled out from the grand stage, and a procession of Knights, Courtiers, Cardinals, and all manner of Royalty and Clergy begin their procession from the back of the hall. And is it? Could it be BlitzGirl the First has graced us in the procession? It's hard to tell at this distance, it being such a huge courtyard and a surprisingly enormous crowd. One by one they take their places on the stage, each sitting on an elaborately carved perch that befits the grandeur of the occasion, and as the last dignitary sits, the music comes to a glorious close. And then, nothing happens. The elaborately carved podium, center stage, remains empty. There is great anticipation, and the assembled crowd begins to murmur, but the stage remains completely still. A moment passes, then another and yet there is no movement. But the crowd does not disperse; it instead becomes more intense in its anticipation.

From stage right appears the Pope of the Holy Contradiction, dressed in richly embroidered vestments of glorious golden hue, which flow around him2 as he1 strides to the podium and implores the crowd:
What is the greatest commandment ever written, uttered, spake, or encoded with electrons and sent at the speed of light and darkness throughout all the land? What is it to which we all must aspire, though our bodies be weak, and our will faltering? What is it that is the ultimate purpose of our assembly here, and indeed, of our entire lives? That commandment, handed to us from On High, is both simple, and challenging. It is, if I may utter the words myself without feeling inadequate:
Wait For It.
In this is written all of life. You have just done this here, this moment, but you must do this everywhere. And you must especially do this in the One True Comic, as it only exists in its own Time. For those who have arrived after the Beginning of Time, properly following this commandment involves a Holy Quest, pioneered by the Holy Apostle BlitzGirl The First, who in making her pilgrimage, has left us a Sacred Book, the Book of BlitzGirl.
The trumpets sound again in glorious fanfare.
We are gathered here to commemorate two others, who in completing this pilgrimage, have elevated themselves from ordinary Timewaiters, to the Most Exalted Status of BlitzGirl the Next. So, let it be known here and forevermore, that Selcouth and PhoenixRising have, by virtue of their heroic deeds, are consecrated each as BlitzGirl The Next, a title among the highest honors that can be conveyed in the One True Thread. Selcouth, I bid the rise, and kneel.
There is a disturbance among the crowd of Timewaiters as somebody makes his2 way up to the stage. It is Selcouth himself. Having no avatar at this time, he1 is hard to see, but you can make him2 out if you look carefully. He1 rises up onto the stage, and kneels before the Pope. The Pope raises his2 hand above Selcouth's head, and in a voice that carries far past the castle walls, heralds:
Selcouth, in honor of your having properly Waited For It even after the Beginning of Time, forsaking the distractions and temptations of the present time and the present Time, but seeking only to have the truth revealed to you at Its Proper Pace, and furthermore, in recognition of your doing this in anonymity, even before creating an account with which to receive the Sacrament of Sigcouragement, I, as the Pope of the Holy Contradiction, do consecrate you and bestow upon thee the title BlitzGirl The Next, that for all time, and all of Time, it be known that you have truly and properly Waited For It.
Selcouth rises, the trumpets sound, the crowd cheers, and the flags are waved up and down and left and right in curvy fashions, so as not to open the rift whence velociraptors might emerge should one make the Wrong Assumption about the shape of Space in Time. The Pope raises his hands to quiet the crowd, and speaks again to the assembly.
PhoenixRising, I bid thee rise and kneel.
Out of the crowd of humble Timewaiters, PhoenixRising, easily recognized by his flaming avatar he1 has on today, makes his2 way to the stage and kneels before the Pope, who again raises his2 hand above the head poking out of this flaming vestment, and proclaims
PhoenixRising, in honor of the completion of your Sacred Pligrimmage, that you have truly Waited For It as it was meant to be, forsaking the sight of the future as you pursued your Holy Quest, by the power vested in me as the Pope of the Holy Contradiction, do I consecrate you and bestow upon thee the title of BlitzGirl the Next. And furthermore do I consecrate the Gospel of PhoenixRising, a True and Holy Record of your Quest, to be counted among the Holy Books, alongside the Gospel of BlitzGirl, that it provide inspiration to all who follow, and indeed, to all Timewaiters, for all time and all of Time.
The trumpets sound again as the crowd roars and waves banners in curvy ways to avoid Velociraptorlypse (and Velociraptor lips). PhonenixRising rises and joins Selcouth center stage as the Pope takes holds his hands high to still the crowd. He1 speaks:
And now I would like to invite our Most Esteemed BlitzGirl The First to take the stage and say a few words of inspiration.
The crowd goes wild! But at just that moment part of the castle collapses and water starts seeping into the courtyard. It seems the sea is still rising.

I could do you a custom instrumental track if you want :) (I'm a musician/composer/producer type dude, not that anyone would know that yet as I haven't really properly introduced myself on these fora... but hey, you know now!)

Sure, whip it out as Frank would say. I think everyone would be delighted to hear it.

Alrighty then! Here's what I've cooked up... Instrumental version, and a version with my not-so-great singing for demonstrative purposes. I whapped out my ukulele for this one! Fun.

Yappobiscuits - that was amazing!


People are arguing about whether blitzers should post anything, and seem to be against the idea; but signatures say otherwise. I hope my spoilering is amenable to people in the Future.

Hello! Doing well, thanks. Weather's a balmy 82°F...in my room (it's closer to 70°F outside...*sigh*), surface radiation levels are well within reasonable levels, and my domesticated catmolpy is curled up on the bed. Conditions could hardly be more ideal.

Oh come on, I just said everything's perfect, SOMETHING exciting has to happen...

Whatever you do, don't look behind the third door on your right. I can't explain why, but the consequences could be catHousemolpyastrophic.
Also, remember the phrase, "Cuegan and the molpy by the sea at midnight" I promise that it'll make sense when the time comes.

Oh, all four of my housemolpies are beginning to get ever so close. Closer and closer. They know it is time for their midnight snack, which means it is time for me to coma. As it appears that Megan's conversation with the mini-molpyrator-molparrows is not likely to reveal anything of significance to us non-chirpers, I bid one and all a good night, coma well.
