And, that makes me pope.
I guess try out the MolpyUp game if you haven't yet.

I've combined b's arrow addition with a modified version of mrob's auto clockspeed adjust, starting at 30 and increasing more slowly. It is indeed very addictive.
I've also made the game save every Tim you put a flag on a sandcastle, since I die far too often when it's going faster than about 70.
I still haven't gotten past 1800 in normal mode because... reasons.

I adopted this to the main branch. Thank you. :)

I also introduced a RELATED option: Those who do not want to have it easier can press the <a> key to switch the arrow off and back on.

Thanks for your help. :)

So far, I took everything, including sand platforms, from the OTC – except the molpy and now the baltharrow.
I'll have a look at the grass, flowers, and sand in t-1 and t1i to find replacements.

Concerning molpies and other items, I don't want to [spoil] here what you'll encounter in the hotdog. But if you have a look at the files in the subdirectory assets you can see what is needed.

Well, you get two extra days this year. Also, filing is technically optional, it's paying they get fussed about.

Mostly the gators stay farther south, so I don't worry about them too much. Apparently someone spotted a 1/2 cue monitor lizard crossing a road nearby though. No word as to why.

I like TaxAct for doing mine. (But, I don't have state income tax, so mine is easier than some.)
But I think it was only about 10 whits, total.

Isn't the answer: "To get to the other side"?
Or maybe this SMBC comic contains the answer: https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/2012-01-18
I haven't checked the context of SBN's comment, I must admit, so forgive me if I am writing nonsense.

By the way, I have also done a few whits of tax filing. That is, today I managed to find all the papers I was looking for, to everyone's surprise. I hope there aren't papers that I have forgotten that I should look for. But my deadline isn't until May 2; must have something to do with time zones I guess.

My daily paper didn't print an April fool's joke this year, as they traditionally do. Boring. They just printed an article explaining why not. But maybe that article was the April fool's joke...

OK, bedtime for me. Cheerio. (Sorry, I mean "molpy down". I have lost some OTTish skills in the basement.)

This may make it a bit simpler: I compiled it into an app package using py2app. You should be able to just double-click it to launch it like any other Mac app.

Another example of both the talents and the generosity of OTTers. Thank you taixzo! I am now happily MolpyingWayUp.Badly, but happily. :D Steakish hotdog, Sustainabilizer, and awesomeful ottification! At first I couldn't figure out what you did. :)

And steakish molpy-huntung, Zooman! I'll assume that there is another molpy to the right of the frame, just because I always prefer there to be molpies.

No worries. I'm sure both molpies and OTTers like Cheerios.

I just realised it's 12 dips past the beginning of when I generally change my avatar for the madness.
There wasn't even a announcement saying we weren't having one this yip.

Oh, right, I hadn't even thought about the fact that it was that time of yip. I guess the mods have decided not to do it anymore, and just figured they wouldn't say anything and hope no one notices. Or maybe they're trying to lull us into a false sense of security...

Re: 1190: "Time" "Pants"

Postby Eternal Density » Fri Apr 13, 2018 12:29 pm UTC

I may have mentioned playing a card based hotdog with my family called Bring Your Own Book, which involves looking in a book for words which match a prompt. We played again tonip and one particularly notable (and RELATED) prompt was "A sentence which sounds funnier if you replace a word with 'pants'."
This of course lead to a zanclean amount of silliness which somehow **nded up with me locked outside the house with my dad, holding a seaish pile of pants.

I so totally agree with GLR re: todip's Othercomic.

ED, I have to remember that game. I know just the group of people to play it with. In my pants.

Thanks for the dem*starding, GnomeAnne!
Spoiler:
Realized I should spoiler this since GnomeAnne spoilered the demustarding.

I don't see the person withe the lapsand. Not sure what it is I see.


I could never get those Magic Eye pictures either. :(

Edited to spoilerize.

Yeah, it's still pretty blurry.
It might be a map, the light coloured rectangle at the top could be a field, the brown could be populated areas, and the white/blue could be water.
I've changed my mind.
The person is sitting at a table, there's the back of a chair visible above the far end of the table, and someone just at the left edge of the picture is watching the sanduser

I've never had Turkish delight. My slightly younger brother loves it.
