I haven't been this excited for the hourly ONG since... oh wait, since they spotted the Beanie Bunch, which wasn't too long ago. BUT STILL! This might be the most anticipated ONG for me, yet.

The problem I see here is that they can't land until the water stops rising (or at least rises only slowly). At 10m per day you just can't do it. The shore is receding so fast. So you need a couple of months of supplies. Water is the big issue. Unless steam bottles know how to desalinate the water. Then it might be possible. If the inflow is faster it recedes faster, but you have fewer days until it ends.

BTW, what DID Noah eat during the forty days and forty nights? He had plenty of possibilities, but likely they were ruled out by his instructions.



I am so not the expert there, but he was never told to bring exactly two of every animal was he - it was more of a minimum? :twisted: Noah at least had a reliable water supply - The Megball Forty not so much.

I find GLR's faith in us OTTers very special. We've had "Wait for it" for nearly 4 months now and he changes the alt-text knowing that one of his faithful would notice. Sure enough 2 minutes later

As I recall, he was actually instructed to bring more (seven?) of the "clean" animals. So maybe they munched on some of those.

I vote absolutely NOT! It would only add to the clutter as everyone tries to increase their post numbers, possibly without anything to add to the discussion. We've all been pretty good and tolerant so far and there's no reason to change now. Such a structure would also turn the OTC into another forum like so many others where you get cute names or titles based solely on your number of posts.

When there's nothing left to be said, don't say it! :shock:

You know how when you are reading a novel, and you're a slow reader (like me), so the novel lasts for days and days where you only spend maybe an hour a day with it so you can get the rest of your life done too, and then you hit a point where you just ... can't ... put it down?

That's where we are now.

Problem is, in spite of the new alt-text, it looks like he is still going to only give us a frame per hour.

DAMMIT! I want to put my life on hold and devour the rest of the story in one gulp! AND I CAN'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(And I'm not even from the "instant gratification" generation.) (Which is any generation which is younger than that of the speaker.) (Which, for this speaker, is most of them.)

As this is my first opportunity to be Page Pope, and as a low-rate contributor, I decree that popitude criteria NOT change.

I further decree that ... what? What do you mean only one decree per page pope? I was going to decree that I get infinity more decrees! NO FAIR!

According to the Bible, God didn't give man the animals to eat until after the flood. The Ark was supplied with enough plant food matter to feed all the animals as well as all the people. I don't believe the Bible addresses what the carnivores among the animals were eating.

m Until mscha starts doing it, that is.

Ximenez has the right idea. Whenever the alt-text changes, someone should post an updated list, with ALT TEXT HISTORY as a header (so we can search for it). For consistency, let's stick with mscha's numbers.

Shipwrecks! they should be all over the place! they had to know there was a larger sea, no? It could explain a lot. Nomadic people would find lots of stuff in the salt.

To alleviate concerns about missing firstposts, announcing the pagePope could still be the job of the first one on the page. Any more PagePope change Ideas?no longer pope, so I guess nothing changes.

One thing that occurs to me:

Their sea will rise at whatever rate until it hits the height where it begins spilling over into the next basin, which will then fill until it begins spilling over into the next basin, and so forth; until it needs to rise further to spill over into the next basin, at which point the level of Cuegan's sea will pause again while that basin fills, and so on.

In other words, there will be a stutter in the rise in sea level. It may rush up a bit... and then stop for a while, and then rush up more... and then stop for a while, etc.

Can anyone with a better eye on Mediterranean and more time figure out where those pause-points would be? It looks at first glance like there might be one as the water crests the trough just south of Algeria, but I can't tell if that just continues uphill into Tyrrhenian basin or not; if not, then it would have to rise to the level of Edagi Valley just west of Sicily, where it would pause until it filled all of the eastern Mediterranian, but at that point it seems like it would have already filled most of the western Mediterranian, leaving only the continental shelf above some steep mountainous coasts exposed.

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 should do. Maybe if he intervenes further, some of the forty can be saved. . .

Okay, probably not. but I think I'm going to entertain the scenario for a while.

Oh shit... I can see this happening and it's already so heart breaking.
The next frame will be La Petite on a raft with three masts, an eye patch, and 38 others on board. She'll say:

I think they are adult, but innocent. Children would not be able to go on a hundred mile hike by themselves on a whim.

It's not only Megan's injured leg.

They won't be able to run much because of high altitude (for them)!
