I approve of this comment.
I don't remember if that was in the past or in the not so present present, there was a discussion whether the forty knew the wheel.
The trebuchet has wheels!
In the past, OTTers are explaining their usernames. I think it's time to explain mine.
My username is balthasar_s. Balthasar is my real name. When I joined the xkcd fora I didn't have anything else for username. If I joined the fora when I joined the OTT I would not choose this username. If I joined now I would choose this username again. I like the redundaname thing too much. In otherplaces I use the name "Rowery na Księżycu", "rowerynaksiezycu", "Bicycles on the Moon", "bicyclesonthemoon".
It's because I'm the one responsible for bicycles in our secret base on the moon I didn't write anything here.
Somewhere in 2009 I made this drawing
. Not a very good drawing. But the first with a bicycle on the moon. I don't remember where this idea came from. Some weeks/months later I made a small bicycle of wire. It was perfectly sized for the astronaut figure I have. So I took this picture
. And that's how it was done
. With colors removed
it looks like on the moon. That's where my avatar comes from.
In December 2010 I had an idea for an otherothercomic. It was about a small group of people that discovered that Earth is not a safe place for them to live any more, so they escaped to the Moon to build their own empire there, become powerfull, and take over the Earth. The plan failed
but they managed to establish our Moon base There is no moon base, really
The comic needed a name. I remembered the picture and I named it "Rowery na Księżycu" ("Bicycles on the Moon"). Later, there was also a second part, "Prezydent Ci spadł z głowy" ("A president fell off your head"). The image in my signature comes from there. At that time it was only the name of the comic.
When I started my youtube channel in 2012 I used the name "Rowery na Księżycu". Mostly because the comic, and one of the comic's characters were listed as the ones who present the "Wiatr słoneczny" ("Solar wind") film. But a youtube channel comes together with a google account and I got a rowerynaksiezycu@ email. That's when I realised it's a good name to use anywhere else. Also nobody else used that name.
Recently, I found out that there is another bicyclesonthemoon. On tumblr. I'm not going to use tumblr anyway.
Is there anything else that needs to be explained?
