It's yuletide in the OTT. There are a lot of things to respond to, so If I don't get to it--don't worry, I love all you xuys.
First, our mystery author finally stops panning and gets to the interesting AfterTime stuff. The Forty set up camp, and Cuegan randomly set off on another expedition to GLR-knows-where. Bit epsilon, huh? But they'll be all right. or will they? stay tuned.

The xuy who I'd probably annoy by betting $2 on Daily Doubles.ED
posts hatted ponies, which I approve of. A product that sadly, won't go in the One True Store (maddeningly, GLR still has no Time merchandise.)
(speaking of which, patzer
has her klein-bottle hat back. yay!)
Likely, given GLR's trolling, we will also never know the first hash either. ah well.
addams, among others, wrote:randal
Fun Fact: Amarillo, TX is partially located in Randall County, which was named for Confederate general Horace Randal.
It works both ways.
There is also a Randall Road west of the Fox River in Illinois, marking the westernmost part of Chicago's urbanization (or at least it used to...)

I find that's only true for the first few hundred pages. It gets a lot tougher afterwards, as the pages take longer to read (word content increases).
Thank you ggh

Frankly, I like making these sorts of riddles, but I hate/am at a loss for solving them.
Those sorts of things are never going to get very much interest unless you post in an ARG forum or something. So it's useless to complain about that.
People have responses, ketchup, and Outside stuff they need to do, and a riddle without clear direction or time constraints is somthing many can't really attempt because of that.
I really loved othercomic 1305 when it came out. the OTT gets more true to it every dip.
We few, we molpish few, we girl-named OTTers.
This is actually a very interesting topic to me when blitzing. Like Vi Hart, among others, pointed out
, some people feel gender much more strongly than others. Mine isn't that strong--and it changes often--so those names come from quite a different perspective than mine. (sand grains?)
We have "-girl" names (Blitz, buffy, apply, veloCity
also "-man" names (Karmann, ergman, manvandmaan
and a few "'-cat"s (MistyCat, Gingercat, CasCat, CameronCat, Kit.
Though don't confuse the two, or you'll end up with a KarCat yelling at you for a seaish amount of time.

That is very true. Honk once before driving into the tunnel.

posts a fellow floofmolpy! squee! It's adorable and floofy!
However, the definition of "first bird" is arbitrary
, and can be pretty much any archosauromorph depending on your definitions.
I draw the line at Maniraptora, which means that "raptor" is equivalent to "bird".

I wasn't the only one to make that observation.Yappo
decided to post ponified raptors. They were floofy enough!
Still, what part of "covered in feathers" do some people not understand???
(ETA: here, I made an uninformed comment. the feathering was okay.)
I also liked Albertonykus's version
's glorious arrival. On Christdip eve, no less!

I did that once, on a plane from DCA to ORD. It probably helps that I had won a big trophy the dip before.
Getting a pilot's license is on my bucket list. somedip...

That prediction seems to be spot-on as of the current time.

Finally, Molpy Cueganmas, and a happy new yip! It's kind of strange to me that the Christmas season ends on 2 January--growing up in a Russian family, I'm used to it continuing to the Old New Year on the 14th. People can't Wait to take their decorations down or something?
So a bonus OdeTiTy:We Blitzers
(based on this chiptune cover
of "We Three Kings").
We blitzers of Pastpages are
Bearing gifts—we travel so far
Wood and vineyard, momes and molpies
Following constant ONGs.
O ONG of waiting, ONG each dip
ONG with lovely sound and blip
Forward reading, still proceeding
Guide us to the present yip
Made a Lord on Somerville plain
Gold I bring to set up your fane
One True Author may be tired, but
Time will ever remain.
Sandcastles to offer have I
Hotdogs own a GLR high
Making OTTers of Outsiders
Wait for it ... they will try.
Salve is mine, its flavor instilled
Recalls a time of thoughts that were thrilled
Doubting, gasping, bleeding, e**ing
Drowned in a sea refilled
The chorus (second paragraph), is of course, inserted after every verse, as usual.
The rest of the lyrics are as one might think them to be.
