Re: 1190: "Time"

Now I'm confused. It looks like the angle hasn't changed, but the ‘camera’ just zoomed out. But how come the river is now in front of them instead of next to them?? http://www.mscha.org/tmp/SkypeEmoticons/animated/emoticon-0112-wondering.gif It looks like that to me too... maybe they reached a bend...

Re: 1190: "Time"

In fact, it is narrower. The river is about 12 Cueballs wide, compared to 17 Cueballs the last time we zoomed out on the river. I don't think she was talking about the width of the river, but of its overall size (including length). ¹: The official unit of length of the OTC? Similar to the Smoot . I...
