Some enhancements of recent enhanced new ONGs.
#165:
Image


#168
Image

It's a giant popsicle, and is being moved into a giant factory to have its stick attached. On the right is a stick of recycled butter; is this perhaps our own Buttermongery we're looking at? So anyway, they cook the wagonwheel pasta in the Mediterranean sea using the radioactive waste from the power plant that used to control the dam, and they put the popsicle in it instead of the recycled butter. As this is revolting, France revolts and the seismometer registers the combined stomach rumblings of the entire country. Uneaten, the pasta clogs the dam, the sea drains, the pressure builds, and the stage is set for the Beginning of Time.

You know what's in here.

What is that thing in the sky, top left corner of the ENHANCEd frame?
Some kind of connection between two buildings, like the Petronas Towers?

ETA: we're on some kind of quay or pier. You can see the near edge in the last few ENHANCEd frames.
Spoiler:

ETA2: and it looks like the truckrobolpy will either drive into the water, or have to stop real soon now. (Although it could be that the quay is wider there, we'll find out if the camera keeps turning.)

A bridge, perhaps. More like an aerial tunnel, by the looks of things. Seems to connect the part of the city we can see with a part we can't, behind us.

The seismograph has stopped recording.
The scroll hasn't moved since t-1_0167.
Does it need more water?

The Beanies have left.
Is that a staircase on the right, where the Beanie climbed up?

There's a molpy under the tree on the left.

It's there, you just can't see it.

Generally, when comparing that to a "you can't un-see it" situation, I find the former to be mildly preferable.

mscha wrote:How do you get into those buildings?

See the posts with the yellow and black chequered patterns? Two of them mark the edges of a portal to the past (or future) like that in the balthafilm Takie Czasy. You go through the portal to a time when the buildings had not yet been built. There is another portal "inside" the building so you can then return to a later time when the building exists.
  Protip: Have some extra self-powered robotwheels lying around, in case your future self steals the ones you were using.

Other musings: mrob seems to tackle big projects in a way consistent with this undertaking. But if it is him, his pokerface is pretty stellar. Could cmyk have returned? This would definitely be in his wheelhouse.... What about waveney?

mscha wrote:How do you get into those buildings?

See the posts with the yellow and black chequered patterns? Two of them mark the edges of a portal to the past (or future) like that in the balthafilm Takie Czasy. You go through the portal to a time when the buildings had not yet been built. There is another portal "inside" the building so you can then return to a later time when the building exists.
  Protip: Have some extra self-powered robotwheels lying around, in case your future self steals the ones you were using.
Or maybe you go through the portal and you're inside?
If it can work as a time portal there is no reason for it not to work as a space portal too (?)

Hmm, I never tried to use it as a space portal before...

Wait for it, I have to check something...

No, I have no idea what mscha is planning.

Maybe the next two mschaONGs can tell us what the rope is holding?

The wheelarm has moved to the right.
Is it RELATED to the robolpy⁴?

Looks like it's a wheel changing robolpy, probably about to fix the right rear wheel. (The truckpy's right, not ours. Or maybe its left front wheel if it's backing up, it's hard to tell.)

It didn't move from 167 to 171. Now it's moving again.

Sorry, that's secret. But I can tell you I'm on my way to spell HES at the inside of the seismograph. So don't be surprised if it moves slower soon.
I have no idea.
Wait on.

:azule: Oh good, while you're there, @balthasar could you check to see what happened to the fence behind that building? Then again, you'd better not, the fence might end in another portal.

I think that black thing on the {our left} side of the truck is just a pipe or hose used to fill/empty the tank. It exists separately from the truck's four wheels, which are intact and identical (as seen in frame t-1_0165 for example).

Prediction: The strait is already blocked and this kind of truck is used to refill the Mediterranean sea with water, so it wouldn't dry up. What? It would be easier to make a pipe connecting the sea with the ocean? Sorry, that sounds ridiculous unlike the tank truck idea.

The needed amount of water is 50,000 cubic metres per second by one estimate1 or 70,000 by another2. That's a really big pipe — so I agree, tank trucks make more sense :P

 — the antepengoatimate mrob27

1"Fresh water inflow to the mediterranean is approximately 30,000 m3/s and evaporation occurs at a rate of approximately 80,000m3/s." — A study question at chegg.com.

2"The average volume of inflow is estimated to be about 1.75 million cubic meters per second and the average volume of the westward-flowing undercurrent is approximately 1.68 million cubic meters per second. The net inflow of 70,000 cubic meters per second represents the estimate of the volume of excess evaporation over precipitation plus the net inflow from the Black Sea, averaged over a year." — Scott C. Truver, "The Strait of Gibraltar and the Mediterranean", 1980. ISBN 90-286-0709-9.

I think the bridge in the current ENHANCEd pictures might actually be the bridge.
That would mean we are now approximately here:
