UNGward from the pseudo-loop.

Seriously, people were losing their sh*t six yips ago about the apparent support for Loopism, the snapback from which seems to be what started the whole bag pun outbreak.

As you were going under, did you overhear the surgeon saying "Pardon me, but do you have any grey poupon"? After all, if xe's taking something out, xe'll need something to fill the void, right?

Glad it all went well.

*shudder*

And then this frame followed shortly after, quite possibly in response to the loopish UNGst:
Image

Explicitly calling out the non-**d like that has to have been a remark to the audience. Even if newpix 1004 to 1006 had been drawn wips before, it wouldn't be very difficult to add the Cuegan dialogue to those frames. And these frames are literally the first opportunity after the Fakeloop to insert a dialogue exchange. (I don't count np1002 and 1003 because they're still transitioning from the **d of the loop.)

Welcome forward, taixzo! I've been waiting for it to see what the emolpi voting system might look like before locking in a set for sure, but the repositories in general are the pool I'm thinking of pulling from. The length of the voting rounds for a Molpydome would probably be longer, so it might not be realistic to start with quite the same seaful that GLR did for Emojidome (in which case there might need to be some preDome winnowing of the set). Suggestions are welcome, particularly because I've probably missed new creations during my basement stays. Image

turns out the answer is "42", but in binary, and repeated, and with commas between the digits, to form octonions with the structure (1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0). Which then somehow make up life, and the universe, and everything.

Regardless of whether the bike is running the saw or the saw is running the bike, the answer would be the same as they're directly connected. Chainsaws seem to run pretty fast - about 12,000 RPM. It's hard to tell, exactly, but it looks like the chain has about a 3:1 reduction between the saw and the wheel. That means the wheel needs to be turning about 4,000 RPM. Assuming it's a 26-inch wheel, that works out to about 310 mph (500 km/h), which is far faster than the fastest production motorcycles and in the range of the fastest two-wheeled vehicles ever (current record is 376 mph).

but 12000rpm that's the speed of free rotation with no load, right?
It will not be able to keep this speed when it has to pull the bike, right?

Or it will end up with the wheel rotating in place, much faster than the bike's actual forward speed, quickly destroying the tire.

Also the wheels look smaller than 26.
I'd say something between 20 and 24.

Actual, true story:
Today I heard my doorbell.
I opened the door.
There was a woman with a chainsaw (and a bedsheet)
She asked me if I would like to buy it.

Also true:
these days I'm working at restoring a bike for my youngest sister.
It has a very similar shape and size to the sawbike.
It even folds in two like this one.

I started with the keyboard input circuit.
I had to modify the original circuit so that each key is independent.
(originally it used a keyboard matrix but without diodes, I had to add them)
An 8x8 keyboard matrix with 61 diodes and 8 resistors, for 61 keys.
A lot of wires to solder.
I just finished.
Image
Then when checking it,
I realised I did it completely wrong.
And it will not work at all.
Somehow I switched the rows with the columns.
So instead of 61 individual keys I will have... 8.
Each group of 8 keys will behave as just one single key.
Wasted lot of time...

I wouldn't say it's completely wasted Time, keythasar. You just discovered a new way to not make the piano you wanted to make. Image

Probably both, for OTTers. A truthification?

Feeling that I'm bagged by the implicit decree, I won't bag down; hence I'm bag with a link to the new OtherComic.
Wait on.

Anyway I managed to rescue it so I don't have to start from the beginning.

That's how it was (from bottom side):
Image
You can see the vertical lines of things soldered togeether.
I had to cut the vertical connection into single elements (using a tiny saw):
Image
And then connect them horizontally:
Image
And it works!
So the first part (the keyboard input circuit) is done.
Now time for

Looks like bags are a topic of this bage page.
It reminded me of something.
When I was in Kindergarden,
once we played a game.
There was a hypothetical situation about going to somewhere.
But I don't remember now what place and which circumstances.
Anyway they changed in each round IIRC.
We had to tell what we would take into a bag with us.
I told that I would put another bag in the bag.
Everyone was like no what are you doing you can't you don't understand the game and so on...
But I thought
Why not take a bag into the bag?
Obviously we will need more bags there.

Good luck, my blitzing friends!

This was a response to a question of No Mouse:

I have a question: What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?
And a second one: What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
And per decree: What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?
This question, while being a reference to the Guide, fits surprisingly well into the theme of phys.

OTTCOLORISING IS SO _LAST YIP_

Postby lmjb1964 » Mon May 06, 2019 8:22 am UTC

Taking a quick peek in here from the trenches, and I'm seeing many awesomeful things. So Phys is interactive? I wonder if it will have anything about zombies or raptors. *Waits for it.*

You probably noticed the redundancy in my earlier post. That was for the decree. Unfortunately, I didn't realize the page had changed, so I was following the wrong decree. :(

Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to go bag to the trenches. I hear there are still more zombies and raptors on their way.

But would you really want it?
If you have the possibility to shape the story,
you also have responsibility.
raptors, zombies, I don't see how it would fit into the topic of the phys story.
You could say, it's something from a different bag. (do you use bags for relocation?)
From the whole RAZOR full name I think only "observation" seems relevant.
