Hey, we get to see the beanie-seismograph-thing again. But I think the big tremor that happened at approximately t-1_0256 has scrolled off the end of what we can see here…

Funny, I read that as "… half the threads in my pants" :D
  I actually liked this one, a lot better than most SMBC's (just personal taste, I really don't have anything against SMBC, I just find very very few OtherOtherComics that I like at all…)

If my prediction holds true, then it's the tripod/base for the heliograph.

ETA: There are now three of those grayish things sticking out of one side of the conveyor belt (like the earlier ones I described here). They seem to magically pass through other parts of the truck. They are made of gray pixelsvoxels, which are rare and reserved for special places.

I also wanted to mention that when I saw @AluisioASG's "Slendo Man" comment, I thought about the ending of David Brin's Earth, in which gravity waves are used as a weapon to kill people by stretching, taffy-like. It might also involve black holes or ninjas

At first I thought it was a tripod for a theodolite given the geodetic capabilities the Beanies have shown in the original Time but now I see your prediction makes more sense and is very, very likely to be true.

Well... neutrinos can definitely do that.

The original mustard was also made of gray pixels... But now it's too much of it to be mustard coincidence. I hope it's not grey goo. Although that could explain everything.

One of the things that it would explain are all the mysterious blue pixels in the t1i series (best viewed in the Balthabluenhancement-viewer). Perhaps they are actually Blue Goo created in a desperate attempt to fight the gray goo.

  ᖽᔑᐣᘖ ᖚᐣᘖᖗᑫ is seen in frame 2801 and has been translated "we will take you to…" or "we will go to…".
  ᘊᒣᑦᘈᖉᐣ is [name of city], see frame 2816

Ha! I realized what this reminds me. Off on a Comet! The Jules Verne's novel I read as a child. Just read the plot summary on the OtherWiki.

(...)
These people did not realize at first what had happened, and considered the collision an earthquake.
(...)
It turned out that the island had been occupied by Englishmen, who maintainined a connection to their base at Gibraltar through optical telegraph.

Although if I recall correctly, in this case the optical telegraph means this but still.

@NoMouse, the 'optical telegraph' could also easily be Clacks.

I believe that speech by Rosetta says From where are [these people]? (referring to the two strangers). So ᘊᙐᖚᐤ might be "Where?", and the Beanie with the mirror is concisely asking, "Where should we send our message?"

Length Expansion

Postby Sustainabilizer » Tue Nov 10, 2015 2:09 pm UTC

We already have seen Time dilation in t-1. Now there's also length expansion, the 2½d-counterpart of the well-known length contraction we experience in 4d Minkowski spacetime.

Image

HammockGirl
36 pixels in t-1_0125
40 pixels in t-1_0138
46 pixels in t-1_0341

Tall Beanie
40 pixels in t-1_0125
45 pixels in t-1_0138
64 pixels in t-1_0341

Image

Prediction:
Around t-1_1000, Tall Beanie will reach 100 pixels.
Around t-1_3950, Tall Beanie will blow up the frame.
Thus ends t-1.

The Outside is being very Outside-y, but I enjoyed the ketchup. Enjoyed the stereoscopic images (including the cake!), and the OTTification, and the Beanie analysis, and all the other treeishness. And mikrit made me :azule: at least twice.x2

I also enjoyed a rare BlizGirl sighting on Facebug! She promises to come back to us soon.

With regard to the grey tubes on the trebotbelt, they remind me of the rods on steam trains that move the wheels. Except that they seem to have a different function here, and that they appear and disappear to their liking... Maybe they spontaneously assemble from nanobots2?
Wait on.

BLITZGIRL IS THE OUTSIDE OF THE PUNSAW

Postby mrob27 » Wed Nov 11, 2015 12:05 am UTC

Baobabs, that's a really pretty colourisation.

Multiple OTTers, for example lmjb1964, wrote: Wow, I finally saw the grey things that mrob was talking about. […] No clue what they are. :?:

I've got to believe that they're grey goo. Thanks @NoMouse. Grey goo, like Utility fog, can present itself in an apparently tangible form, like shiny metallic cylinders on a botmobile, but can also change shape at will, pass through walls, and generally fail to notice the laws of nature.
  @ZoomanSP seems to know about nanobots because… ??? … I'm guessing that it's turtles all the way down, and the nano-turtle that's sitting about 27 levels up on @ZoomanSP's hat is a nanobot. A nanoturtlebot with a few uptillion close friends. Grey goo does what it wants, but not necessarily what we'd expect. Remember xkcd 878 — It's impossible to nest more than six turtles down… after that, we don't know what happens, but it's best not to talk about it.
  @Febrion, launching projectiles trebuchet-style is entirely within the power of grey goo, but launching projectiles rocket-style seems more likely.

Thank you for the animations and ENHANCEments @mscha!

  Morobu points back the way from which he just came, and asks if she noticed the geometric bamboo shapes left by azule.
  "Yes, but I'm not sure what to make of them. I saw them at night. Fireflies seem to be attracted to the bamboo nodes. It's very pretty, like the firefly festival I saw last summer, but also mysterious."

But what the ch*rp is the botmobile doing? It just seems to be driving back and forth sort of randomly, and it has nothing to convey on its conveyor belt, if that's what it is.

That's what she said! (Well, a fellow can dream, right?)

I think the Beanish characters for "yes" look a bit like the proto-Beanish word on the side of the mysterybot. But I guess that's coincidence. Why write "yes" on a robot? In fact, why write anything in a robot society?

I had a RELATED dream:

With my father and my youngest sister I visited my grandfather. (However for the rest of the dream I didn't see my father and sister any more.) After some greetings I noticed that there is BlitzGirl sitting in the room on the left!
I said something like "Hi Bllitzgirl, What are you doing here?" in Polish. Immediately after this I thought "I should have said this in English.". But she understood and replied also in Polish "I've been here for some days already.". I was surprised "Wow, when did you learn...". She replied with something that made no sense at all but I was all like: "Oh, that explains everything." and also "I should have expected this after I saw that in the early days you uploaded pictures to a Polish uploading website instead of using attachments."). She pretended that she didn't hear this.
In the whole conversation I stood near the open door to the room on the left and I did not look at her but on the doorframe, the wall, a telephone on a small table, the floor, etc.
Then I went to the room on the right.
On a table there were some books. I opened some of them and looked at random pages. I noticed RELATED pictures. I looked more carefully. The book was a collection of stories. Two of them were RELATED. They were some sort of fantasical fiction with OTT characters (I noticed myself, BlitzGirl, Sustainabilizer, some others I don't remember now.), weird events and RELATED illustrations (often manips of real attachments). I looked who is the author, there was a polish name, a woman. I don't remember the name now. It also said "all illustrations used with agreement of their authors". "I don't remember anyone asking me to use my avatar!".
I wanted to show the book to BlitzGirl but I no longer had it in my hands. I looked for it on the table and I didn't find it. My grandfather asked: "You are looking for a book?", "Yes.". "But you know that this isn't a 'real' book but only a collection of stories?", "Yes", "Ok." I started to look for it in other rooms. BlitzGirl noticed it and wondered what I'm doing. So I pretended to be looking at some clothes hanging on a chair.
And then I woke up.

Maybe it is trying to line up precisely, but isn't getting it right, so it tries again.

Maybe its instructions are to go where the tires are, but it doesn't have any instructions for what to do if something is in the way.

Maybe the explainy stuff is happening between the ONGs.

Maybe we have to wait some more.

BLITZGIRL IS SERIOUS BAOBAB

Postby mrob27 » Wed Nov 11, 2015 12:14 pm UTC

That's a great dream, @balthasar_s! I'm going to interpret it as a good sign of the coming Blitzpocalypse II*

I was thinking perhaps the robot might be moving in response to some statistic of the OTT, like the postrate by OTTers whose username matches some regex averaged over the past 3 dips; and the goal is for us to figure out what the regex is; after which the robotruckbotyesmobile will spontaneously cease to exist and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.

balthasar_s wrote:Maybe it's a radio controlled big robot toy and a child is playing with it.

… says the bOTTifactor with demonstrably superior knowledge of radio remote-control technology
  Anyway, who says it would have to be a child? Never underestimate the playfulness of non-children. :D
