Time is indeed more than a little wangledy these dips...
The temporodynamic distortion continues, and in fits grows more seaish, only to subside somewhat less convincingly, two mustards forward but only one tree back.
Who's Ch*rping the Epilogue?
As I Blitz, I add entries to my Travelogue. It mostly has stuff I might want to remember later. In the mid NP1300's, as I continue to log the progression
of theories regarding
the epilogue sequence
, I decided to add "epilogue sequence" to my OTT glossary
and was more than a little surprised to see that someonecough
must be ch*rping with our heads again.
As the mscha page shows
, since yesterdix the Epilogue sequence no longer fits the "cycle of 24 determined by the 10s digit of the day and the ones digit of the year, (Outsider UTC)"
rule. Yep, we got EEBBDECBCBAECBDADCDCDBED
when we "should" have gotten EDBADECBCBAECBDADCDCDBED
. What can this mean? It is a sign! Of the Advent! (Or something... )
. . . And nopixbot
tells me that the word epilogue
is trending again up there in the Afterwhen, so I suppose you're on it like Lucky on a Cueball.
The Four Laws of Temporodynamics@ucim
, and @azule
, and @AluisioASG
, and @yappobiscuits
too, sorry for those confused chronograms, and thanks for helping me figure it out. I try not to read posts from the afterwhen, unless they mention me, which is why I got confused about that whole "Dark Lord" business... for one thing, it means that now I know @Earthling on Mars
has reprised that series. That is nobody's doing except my own of course, I like scanning for 'mrob' to stay sort of in touch, and if it means I get the occasional spoiler that's okay. I am actually a person who responds like those in this study
, and you may be shocked to hear that I refused to see Fight Club (too violent, duh) until I found out that (Fight Club spoiler would go here, I won't tell but y'all know how to Google
Thankfully my trusty bots spotted this:

yes . . . not somewhere
, but somewhen
else. Mustard is like entropy — you have essentially given StratPlayer's formulation
of the 2nd
law of temporodynamics, but in more modern language.
The way things have been going lately I think it may be prudent to review all four:The 0th law of Temporodynamics: Two Times (such as the Present and the Past) that are in communication with a third (such as Time itself), are in communication with each other.The 1st law of Temporodynamics: The change in treeishness of any part of the OTT is equal to the quantity of molpies put in, minus the quantity of grapevines it gives to those who read it. Equivalently, a perpetual OTTification machine of the first kind is impossible.The 2nd law of Temporodynamics: Every process occurring in Time proceeds in the sense in which the sum total of mustard in all places and times is increased.The 3rd law of Temporodynamics: It is impossible for any series of actions, no matter how molpily they are performed, to reduce the mustard in any part of the OTT to absolutely zero in a finite amount of Time.
noticed and described
, I did my molpiest at emulating his posting style in my previous report
. I'll fill in a little more:
The numbers in the title "(1349/1412)(1434/1778)" refer to the Newpages that I have not yet read: I was at NP1349 and 1412 is where I delurked, thus the pages 1349-1412 were unread; and 1434 is when I started Blitzing full-Time so the second and larger group of pages that I hadn't read is 1434-1778. Now of course the numbers are (1359/1412) (1434/1783). balthasar_s's numbers would now be somewhere around (460
In the first section, drawn from my detailed Travelogue
. I did indeed put direct quotes in italics and the rest in plain text. I didn't intend to make an OSH puzzle
for balthasar_s with the little bike icon, but congrats, you found it! Here's the bike after color-reversal and cleaning up the dark areas, but before shrinking:The image
with that bike
and my smiley
is a manip of a still-frame from the film "Zgubiłem się w Kosmosie"
announced on NP1520
. The original represents Jupiter and the Galilean moons!!
balthasar__s wrote: I think It's not the meaning of "redundant" you were looking for. "Zbędny" means unnecessary, useless, no longer needed, already done, ... . A bit closer to the meaning of redundant used in the OTT would be "nadmiarowy". But it's not perfect either. ... it might be interpreted that after adding this spoiler, there will be [too] many of them.
Thank you — I appreciate learning a RELATED
bit of Polish. And, in fact I kind of think that redundant
is the wrong word in English. It is only accurate when referring to the original, naïve belief that it would be redundant to place the image inline and also have the attachment somewhere else in the post. The contents of the spoiler are necessary — and since any sort of redundamolpy may lie within, it is nearly always true that a Spoiler: explicitly labeled "redundant" is not so at all, even by the naïve interpretation. Thus, I think it's particularly treeish that I translated the wrong word in English to a wrong-in-another-way word.
Anyway, thanks @balthasar_s
for the idea and @january1may
for telling me about it. I hope all y'all liked it.@Eternal Density

Hey everyone, Vote for the OTTscars!
It's fun! Advanced Forum Search (of Thread 101043)

Ch*rp, another thing I left unexplained
(where I mention "xkcd 1300" at the end). Maybe I'll get to it some User Submission Dix...
Edit: One of my 24-nopix Epilogue strings was wrong
