Another completely silly theory

Postby NoMouse » Fri Nov 06, 2015 12:31 pm UTC

The dam is so bigm that when they moved the elevator close to it, the gravity of the dam kept it in place.

mdo not confuse with: your mom
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

I love the Bernoulli suggestion, and the gravity idea too (and electrostatic charge might do something similar). I predict that in frame 0321 we'll see all three in action, somehow. Possibly involving black holes and ninjas (but not the kind that ninja newpixbot), all of which are made of black pixels, so they'll be invisible meaning that my prediction will be a little harder to prove.

Maybe the released the dam rope suddenly, and then the elevator started swinging left and right, as it was raising. However, we only see the elevator at ONG times, so if the elevator swinging has the same frequency as the ONGs, we would have a resonance that makes us see the elevator only in the leftmost position of each swing.

I think this kind of resonance made astronomers believe that Mercury always had the same side facing the sun.

I would hate to travel by swinging elevator (especially near a crumbling dam). These are brave Beanies.

So, having been linked to the library of babel by Whizbang in the new OtherComic thread, I spent some time snooping around and found this... Alright, who's been messing with the books ?

IN B4 AWEFULSOME OTTERCOMICS

Postby mrob27 » Fri Nov 06, 2015 4:35 pm UTC

That's pretty funny. I found a molpish contradiction :).
  All you have to do is go to their search page, and type in up to 3200 characters (because pages in The Library of Babel have 40 lines of 80 characters). It will "find" pages matching what you typed in. To get a permalink, click the "Bookmarkable" link on the left side of a page.
  It's a cute idea, but it allows people to publish anything without creating an account, with all the legal consequences that implies. I suspect it won't last long.

P.S.: I found a moonbase-RELATED page.

Actually, all pages are generated using a seed(the location (ie hex, shelf, book, page)) and an algorithm. Those pages, with those words, theoretically existed before you searched for them. The algorithm literally produces every possible combination of English letters, including spaces, commas, and periods. No one is "publishing" anything, but instead merely "researching" it.

_MY RIVERISH RAPTOR: OTTISHNESS IS MAGIC_

Sure, that's the way the index would need to work. But the Library of Babel contains everything, including copyrighted things. Regardless of what algorithms are used to find the content, once the content is found it can become the target of a legal challenge.
  For example, if you wanted to assert a copyright on your post (the text I just quoted), you could send a DMCA takedown notice to the maintainers of libraryofbabel.info and tell them to remove libraryofbabel.info/bookmark.cgi?xhf_gae61, because that page contains your copyrighted text.
  As you pointed out, The Library of Babel is all "prior art". Your having posted here before I searched for the text in the Library ought to be irrelevant — because the text was in The Library of Babel before either of us thought about having this conversation.
  (The following is wrong: Biotech firms are allowed to "copyright" sequences of DNA that existed before the advent of biotech, and this is not substantially different. The legal system's treatment of "intellectual property" doesn't seem to care about such prior art.)

Actually, I'm wrong, and there might not be a concern. I just did some fact-checking on myself and found out that the DNA situation changed in 2013 in the USA. If so, and if a similar "it all existed before we humans came on the scene" argument could pass whatever tests the courts would wish to apply, then perhaps this Library of Babel website can single-handedly undo all intellectual property rights related to alphabetic text … but I wouldn't hold my breath :P

Who was it that called the conveyor belt? They seem to have nailed it. But what is it conveying?

I enjoyed all the discussion of the swinging elevator, and I think mikrit came up with a perfect solution. :)

Just a quick note that missing ONGs aren't newpixbot's fault (and aren't caused by mentioninjaing future frames either): it is doing its best but simply finds no frames to post on occasion.
(It seems like Time-1 has caught up with its Maker.)

Amen.

What would an OTTish Amen be? Let's see, "amen" means so be it, so maybe "Neat?" "Yeah?" :D

Spoiler:
Reminds me of a comedian I heard talking about going to mass at a Catholic church. He hadn't been for a while, so he didn't remember everything you were supposed to do or say. When he went to Communion and the priest said, "The body of Christ," the guy answered, "Cool." :D

Do the Beanies know how to manipulate gravity? Or did the dam breaching cause a landslide of a few q?

Not a few q, only a few tenths of a q. This image shows the alignment before the shift:

It was suggested (by @mikrit, OTT:2392:2) that the average of the heights of the two Beanies should be 1q, and the vertical bars numbered 9, 10, 11, 12 are that height. When they reached the bottom the left Beanie reached out (frame t-1_0230) and moved it no more than half xer own height (frame t-1_0244)

When @mscha first pointed out (at OTT:2401:3) that the Beanievator was ascending without having shifted back to the right, I and others called shenanigansmustard. I also suggested (OTT:2392:9) that we're seeing movement in the 3rd dimension, like in Time frames 1359, 1360, etc.

(ETA: While @mscha is here, I suggested that xe could improve newpixbot's ninja-avoidance algorithm. A post that does not contain any <image> cannot possibly ninja newpixbot. (One would also want to whitelist images whose URL contains "/images/smilies/") )

(and lots of other molpish posts)
They didn't move the lift. They moved the dam, and the camera.

Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

For a moment there, I thought the headline would be:
