On the internet, there are multiple levels of reality. People are complicated like that—for the most part, we can keep track of all of them fluidly. We're all aware (or at least, I hope we are) that there are real people (except in the case of newpixbot) sitting at organized sand stations typing the messages on panels of buttons, but we create mental personae of those people based on various ways they present themselves, and who they pretend to be, and we can respond in kind. In one sense, taixzo is a na'vi because our taixzo persona and whatever persona is embodied by taixzo's avatar overlap, but in another xe's not, because they don't overlap everywhere.

However, I can say with complete confidence that HES is definitely an actual hamlpy. There's no other explanation.

Well the imaginary part of a complex number starts with i, and an interface starts with I (that's a capital i not a lowercase L) so how is a complex interface defined?

Just a quick blindpost from a few pages back. Seems like the needle-pulled thing had a rather velociraptorish wipend! I didn't want to miss the opportunity to post on my birthyip page. My contribution to the tread size this time is a RELATED dream. I remember virtually nothing about it, except that I was reading a news article and the word "Cuegan" appeared in the article. I have no idea what the article was about, but I do remember that the word made sense somehow (at least dream-me thought it did). I also remember thinking that I had to tell y'all what I'd seen.

I will try to give responses to comments once I'm ketchepped-up, but that might not be for a couple of wipe. You xuys will just have to... well, you know :wink:

DISREGARD THAT, I MUSTARD MOLPIES

Postby Eternal Density » Tue Jun 17, 2014 7:41 am UTC

I noticed CD's decree. (I tend to be fairly bad at noticing decrees!)
Hmm. The NP of identity. Um. I'm bad at figuring out what I think of OTTers. Probably because I'm rather self-absorbed. I'm not good at people stuff. Other people tend to say I'm smart though, which tends to have the effect of making me lazy. Actually I'm not really a good person. (Not that anyone really is a truly good person (Apart from that one guy. (But he died. (He got better.))) Am I out of the parentheses? I lost count. Oh, I'm not.)

Not so much, in some people's case.

In case I wasn't clear, that was an example of what I call "humour based on blatant hypocrisy". I'm not sure whether it's actually amusing for anyone other than myself though.

Mokona thought that was pretty amusing ^^

Mokona also says welcome back to Higgs-boson and The Minim !

Also, I have made an illustration of the future Beanish-Cuaganite culture, based on Yappo's prediction about Morris dancing and my own manly experiences (that is, experiences from Isle of Man). I had to invent some new Beanish phrases - if they don't look very Beanish, it's probably just caused by a different Beanish font.

I'm both. It's too bad the bug died, but it HAD to die for the sake of the OTC. The OTC is richer for its demise.
Spoiler:
me, NP865 wrote:For all that you mourn the loss of the flutterbee as a symbol of beauty in the world, would you have mourned it so fiercely had it not met such an untimely end? I rejoice in the strength of the raptor's wings, its steep and plunging dive, its anticipation and judgement and technique. I celebrate it: wind-rider, air-splitter, acrobat on the breeze. It is a glorious engine of death, bringing the life of the flutterbee so precisely and poignantly to a close. Too often beauty lingers past its time, left behind on a newpix beyond our ken, to spiral into feather-soft memory that slips from our minds as gently as the Fading. No! Not here! Not now! The flutterbee is snatched from life in the instant of its appreciation, glorious, caught forever in a moment most beautiful, soaring gracefully into the heavens on glistening wings. It is our Icarus, breaking the chains of the earthly world in a brief, dooméd ascent. When he gazed into the blazing heart of the sun, what did he see? What if not the glory of a perfect unbecoming, a climactic close, an eternal legend, a symbol of life and loveliness and hope and desire caught forever in that instant of infinity before transcending the chrysalis of its physical shell and joyfully stretching newborn wings under a sky clearer and fresher than any mortal soul will ever know.

You weep at the loss of a pretty bug.
I weep for you, who cannot see how glorious it truly was.

I lived on the east coast of Scotland that year. I found out about the Challenger disaster when I molpied up from a nap with my 3-month old son and my eldest. I turned on the TV for the little one - Blue Emu? something like that - and the launch was on so I stopped to watch. But then there was too much fire, and trails going off in wrong directions, and spiraling, and the official commentary was trying to keep that calm, professional voice...

During the Chernobyl meltdown we'd look up at the sky and wonder if the radiation heading for the Highlands was going to affect us directly, if the winds carrying it would shift downwards or run into enough moisture to rain on us.

I didn't realise you were a grandmolpy. Or, more likely, I forgot.

Not very successfully. It may just have been asking me to go away, but with its teeth. My Simba used to do that, but was always gentle enough not to break the skin (and hamply teeth are much more riverish than wolpy ones). But yes, I got bitten.

Sorry you got wolpychomped, HES. That's not fun.

Thanks for the compliments on the flutterbee poem in the UNGspoiler, karhell and BlueCrab! That ottification originally came from the newpage without capitalization, 869.

Uh, I don't think so.

Methodology:
  1. Visited search.php?t=101043&author=AluisioASG
  2. Opened all spoilers (Array.forEach($$('input[type=button]'), function (e) { if (e.value === "Show") e.dispatchEvent(new Event('click')); });)
  3. Copy-pasted the whole page text in a plain text file
  4. Removed smileys manually (found :) and :()
  5. Code: Select all

For decree, I find that avatars have a pretty big effect on how I initially perceive somebody here, and even after I get to know them (to the extent that one can online) still have an influence. But seeing other, real, images helps wipe that out. It was hard to get River Tam out of my head for ED, for example, until his molpy hunting videos. I wonder how many people perceive me as religious (which I'm most assuredly not!)

mrob27 - I may have found mustard in Lucky - I had noticed that when I start Lucky, sometimes the grid pattern jumps, as if it's not starting where I was. Watching closely I did catch it in the act this time. Here's the save from just before activation:

2:2209952:I:7635400:14:0..48...9I..18B..6FH..49A.157E.1037:62:46:1.29818,2.461,3.201,4.27,6.7635400

btw, Cueless is molpish! I use it when I exalt the grid to merge some buried tiles, helping to ensure that the high order tiles are properly re-interred.

Also, I seem to have a knack for returning to the tab just as the grid gets full. At first I figured it was just the javascript playing the last move, but I have also caught it displaying the "grid is full" message, as it fades, so I think I did catch it those times. (A note - when Cueless is activated and used, it deactivates (as it should) but the message does not disappear; it merely continues the fade it started. Since the text and color is the same for all boosts, it can be misleading (a few times I clicked on "Lucky - go" when I meant to click on "Undo - go" (or even "Options..."). That's my fingers going too fast.

Steakish otties, mikrit and TheMinim!

Sadly my Blitz has been put on hold. I'm falling behind. :cry: I might start time hopping. (Is that what we call it? I don't know anymore.)

Anyway, the language is the curious mix of English and Spanish (and a few others from around the Mediterranean) called Llanito (or Yanito), spoken in the British Overseas Territory at the source of the great flood of Time. :wink: We have a big Rock and lots of monkeys (which we sometimes call apes but they're tailess macaques).

Now who knows where I'll go next?
Ah-ooooh! Rolling back the rivers in Time!

Hi again, PayasYouDraw! Timehopping or schizoblitzing or whatever is perfectly fine; there are many ways to Time!

Why don't we just use smileys as parentheses?

:( Because it would be confusing. :)

Was there really no ‘SNAP’? The frame is so visceral that I thought there was...

I hear a cymbal clash when I see that frame. Synesthesia, I suppose.

Oh hi Whizbang.
