Re: 1190: "Time"

Actually, there is an ONG, but it's an old one, same as np3092. So we're looping now. I bet this is not what jjjdavidson had in mind. http://www.mscha.org/tmp/SkypeEmoticons/animated/emoticon-0124-worried.gif So you think newpix 3092, 3093 and 3094 will loop eternally? :cry: Still, it's so, so much...

Re: 1190: "Time"

But what an amazing thing this turned into. Over 3000 individual frames. Over 50k posts and 1.3 MILLION views here in the OTT. New cultures, vocabulary, etc. Many, many pictures of cute molpies/animals. Prophecies, popes, poems. So much good stuff. What a ride. Thanks, Randall! And thanks to everyon...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Oh. And alt-text changed. I guess that seals it.

Re: 1190: "Time"

The frame has become a link to geekwagon. So it has. This looks like it's really The End of Time. But why now? Why just shy of 3100 newpix? (Aubron has it at 3097). I mean, it's a nice frame to end on, but man, it seemed like we went from finding The Forty to landing. . . somewhere pretty fast -- t...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I believe you have been taken in (as was I) by the poster in this thread (mscha). As far as I know The Other Comic did not include mention of the Zanclean Flood. Of course, it's always possible that the original post here was correct, and that Randall changed TOC, but that would imply Mustard sprea...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Hey guys. I checked out that Nature paper that hunjo posted on this page and saw the "Zanclean Channel" mentioned in fig. 2b. I checked to see whether this is the same flood as was on yesterday's Other Comic. Well, it was , but it's not on there, anymore. Was this already reported somewher...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Has anyone else noted the mouseover text? It says, "RUN." Oh, and there's Javascript! And, that's weird, I think the image just changed on xkcd.com/1190. All by itself! Didn't anyone notice??/? Oddly enough when I'm at worl I've heard that if I check the OTC at work, it doesn't auto u...

Re: 1190: "Time"

"OH, NO" indeed. You know, if they are up in the hills scavenging, perhaps they can find enough material to build a raft, or something and float to safety. I hope they can outrun the floods, instead. They really should listen to the new instructions and RUN. Go, guys! You've got to get bac...

Re: 1190: "Time"

This talk of Big Floods makes me think of the catastrophic draining of lake Misoula. The lake (apparently the size of lake Michigan) drained in a matter of days to weeks, and left a landscape now called the channeled scablands. Having an entire ocean behind this flood, I think The Forty are in troub...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Regarding the change in alt-text. A thought struck me that maybe Randall has lost control of the OTC, and how he is, like us, watching the story unfold. He does still have access to the alt-text. His changing it to "RUN." is just his way of trying to communicate with Cuegan about what they...

Re: 1190: "Time"

So who's to say that the Forty can't in fact build rafts and sail them to safety? If they're nomads, they're used to carrying food supplies with them. We already know they have "steam bottles" (ugh) so hopefully fresh water won't be an issue. The problem I see here is that they can't land...

Does it make me weird that I'm genuinely concerned for their well-being?

Welcome, Maletero! Hey, now, this is my second post in the OTT (is that how I do that??). But thanks for the warm welcome from everyone! I posted back when everything faded to white.

But I am compelled to say
This is amazing

Really, the comic and this weird . . . whatever that's going on here is just grand. Thanks to Randall and all you wonderful people here in the forum. You've provided me much happiness and many smiles these past 2500+ newpix.
