i attempt talking to said waitress, but end up failing.


There is now a pissed off less painted grue hanging in a forcefield breathing heavily, an even more confused looking blonde waitress staring at Tomlidich in a weird way, and a smear of blood leading to an oddly colored scorch mark on the floor where the pile was.

I come along and also begin to talk to Penny, though more successfully then Tomlidich. The Grue is free now, looking for the Tomlidich for that paint balloon.

There is now a pissed off less painted grue looking at a jealous Tomlidich while xkcd followed successfully gets Penny's phone number and a smear of blood leading to an oddly colored scorch mark, all on the floor where the pile was.

I smack the side of the vending machine and it stops rumbling.

I remember the pile from earlier, and just then it falls out of the vending machine. As it falls on to the floor, on top of "the" pile, they fuse together.

The vending machine falls into a hole into the ground below it. I pick it up, the hole that is, Roadrunner-and-Wile-E-Coyote-style, and walk away.

I take the pi out of the pie and put them back in the pile.

There is now a 3.14159-sided coin-pile, one of which is labeled with the letter "e". 2.71828 of the other sides mark the denomination of the coin.

I take the 3.14159-sided coin-pile, leaving behind a single penny. It appears to be minted in 2013.

I also place my old avatar and signature in the pile.

There is a single 3.14159-sided penny from 2013, a Pinkie Pie avatar, and a stupid signature in the pile.

I read the note, pull out a lighter, set fire to the note, then drink the mysterious beverage, then vomit 372 pennies and die.

I wanted that book for people to read, not to be damaged. I track madjo down and steal his bookmarked page he took. I then begin to tape it back to the book.

Madjo took a page from the book, so I took it back. Anyways, I decide to clean up this pile a little, but the "correct" way. I create and throw into the pile a black hole, antimatter, and a small number of Grues for the pile to fix itself. I also throw in a guide to surviving Raptors. The guide is Blank, waiting for someone to put in useful information for survival.

The Greus are upset and are now laying waste to everything. Also on the pile is a book called Hamlet with a particular page that was missing but is being taped in by xkcd follower.

The antimatter reacts with the matter already on the pile in the form of a black hole, releasing millions of terajoules, sending the pile blasting outwards faster than the speed of light, thereby escaping the black holes gravity field, while still managing to remain intact, and in a cohesive pile.

I bottle up the tears of sorrow, then step off of the pile.

There is a gaping hole in space time, and a reduced black hole. One light year away is a small pile of ashes, a lighter, 372 pennies, a bottle of sorrow tears, 372 ghost pennies, a dead Norevan, a eulogy for Norevan, Norevan's 0 postcount and a blank raptor survival guide, all on the pile.

On a side note, a tardis is predicted to land here at any time, so it might help us clean this up.
