Re: 1190: "Time"

I left for 3 chirping hours and this is what I come back to. Oh well, guess I will keep waiting for it. This crazy thread is a great distraction from crazy work. (Seriously guys, I don't even...)

Even after other comics pass their threads keep going. There will always be more comments in the OTT.

They are called waves Cueball. They are not floating on the water, they are the water. Or maybe tree trunks or the remains of other settlements. Stop looking at me with your creepy blank stare.

The thread is moving so fast these days. Before they reach the 40 my little prediction. La Petite gave them some advanced warning since she was playing at the sandcastle when the sea started to rise.

Revised theory: It is so far in the future but somehow building sandcastles survives as a pastime (cause it is, you know, fun and everyone does it). Beanies decide to make a giant castle cause they are cool like that. Cuebeanie got the building material from near a dam which then collapsed causing t...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Salt lakes and salty inland seas are that way because they have no outflows. So what's to dam up? Dam up the inflows and it gets lower, not higher. You'd have to divert water that had been flowing to some other sea. I was thinking more along the lines that they already have a dam for agriculture, e...

Prediction: Beanies are working on making a hydro-electric dam. Their version of cueball messed up and released the floodgates. This work crew is in charge of fixing the mistake.

Up to now the consensus is that Time frames depict a 2 1/2 D universe, or a 1/3 q slice of a 3D universe. If this is so, then the sun is just a few cm cq behind the tree and is really small. Same for the "sky", which I bet is made of some sort of mustard. Well, the sun is made of light. T...
