Yeah - I feel a little conflicted about that. I'm kinda tempted to either abandon the first commandment and provide hints, or at least provide some sort of structure on the wiki or in the Games section of ChirpingMustard to keep track of what's been found. I think maybe the latter would make it easier for folks to dive in and find some heretofore undiscovered morsels without me being indefensibly heretical.

Finally stumbled across my debasementing post. Baobabs, that was 50 dips ago! It took 50 dips for me to Blitz 360NP? Granted, I haven't done much Blitzing on the wipends, but that still seems slow to me. Oh well, at least I'm now only 20NP from the Present!

!I Saw A Bird!


OutSide:
Out there is a large, strong bird of prey.
It has been named the Osprey.

Hawks, also a bird of prey, vocalizes with a whistle.
The whistle of a hawk is a fast, sharp sound.
Much like the bird, itself.

Eagles are another large bird of prey,
The Eagle vocalizes with a scream.

The Eagle's scream is high and graceful.
Much like the bird, itself.

Up in the mountain quiet,
The scream of an Eagle pierces cold, thin air.

Even down at Sea Level,
The scream of Eagle can be carried far on the wind.

And; Then; ... There are the Osprey.
This bird is larger, stronger and more acrobatic than either Hawk or Eagle.

These birds were very nearly extinct.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDT#Effec ... l_thinning
Effects on wildlife and eggshell thinning[edit]
DDT is toxic to a wide range of living organisms, including marine animals such as crayfish, daphnids, sea shrimp and many species of fish. DDE caused eggshell thinning and population declines in multiple North American and European bird of prey species.[56] Eggshell thinning lowers the reproductive success rate of certain bird species by causing egg breakage and embryo deaths. DDE-related eggshell thinning is considered a major reason for the decline of the bald eagle,[14] brown pelican,[57] peregrine falcon and osprey.[1] However, birds vary in their sensitivity to these chemicals.[7] Birds of prey, waterfowl and song birds are more susceptible than chickens and related species. DDE appears to be more potent than DDT.[1] Even in 2010, California condors that feed on sea lions at Big Sur that in turn feed in the Palos Verdes Shelf area of the Montrose Chemical Superfund site exhibited continued thin-shell problems. Scientists with the Ventana Wildlife Society and others study and remediate the condors' problems.[58]

The biological thinning mechanism is not entirely understood, but strong evidence indictates that p,p'-DDE inhibits calcium ATPase in the membrane of the shell gland and reduces the transport of calcium carbonate from blood into the eggshell gland. This results in a dose-dependent thickness reduction.[1][59][60][61] Other evidence indicates that o,p'-DDT disrupts female reproductive tract development, later impairing eggshell quality.[62] Multiple mechanisms may be at work, or different mechanisms may operate in different species.[1] Some studies show that although DDE levels have fallen dramatically, eggshell thickness remains 10–12 percent thinner than before DDT was first used.[63]

https://web.stanford.edu/group/stanford ... ptors.html

I remember, clearly, a time when the birds of prey were rare.
I was OutSide a great deal. An occasional hawk was noteworthy.

Our skies were devoid of these birds.
I went to Alaska to see a wild Bald Eagle.

!!!Not Any More!!

Today, on the west coast of the us,
birds of prey are delightfully common.
(an open letter to our Brother the Osprey.)
Osprey?
oh, Osprey.

Why, Osprey?...
..Osprey, oh why?

You do not Whistle like a Hawk nor Scream like an Eagle.

Why? oh, Why?
Why do you *Chirp*?
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

One of the recent thunk's posts gave me an idea of something to do.
I'm still thinking, creating and collecting ideas, and trying to figure out if I will be able to actually do it.


Looks like this will take more time than expected. Some of the main, important ideas are still missing. I'm wondering if this is too ambitious. Anyway, I'm writing down notes.

As Jose has noted in the past, there is actually now more afterTime than Time (1255 v. 1254 pages).

This makes me proud
(and errata to a previous post: Cloudy the Conqueror was in UTC+9, filling in a bit of the gap).

Good luck with MOONBASEQUEST 1190, Balta Cynwyd!

The blitz command could do with an -R option for raptorish mode.

-R n, where n is from 0 to 4, determines the degree of feathering, 0 being "scaly Jurassic Park lizard-men", to 4 being fully covered in pennaceous feathers (see my avatar).
-dR 3 would be a yi.

This is probably an empty pondering, because the outside might soon swallow me until mid-September (migration to my hawaiki tawhiti James) but I was thinking it might be fun to colour the occasional BFTF in sync with its anniversary. I did one or two before, using a style stolen from children's books, and I wanted to do a few more like that. I could look at the times on your site and compare with UTC, but... would it be easily possible to have a BFTF replay page like mrob's for Time?

The last time I heard an eagle scream, it was scary. I was canoeing along the edge of Keuka Lake in New York and had failed to notice the eagle perched on a branch overhanging the water. It screamed just as I was about to pass directly below it.

Subtlely mysterious too. I presume that you figured that I might not know when it was that I was done. Perhaps because it's not possible. I conclude that you have merged me with the quantum cat of spice, and there's nothing left but a grin. Or not. Depending on whether or not you're looking.

DIN: Das Ist Norm. (NP2046).

I'm in (well, quite close to), the cabin where three yips ago, I first experienced the Voldeframe.
It's somewhat molpish, but given my yappocism, everyone left for a walk while I was asleep.

(surely I didn't mean ecos?)

Weird Random question. Any OTTers in Canada? Like Northern British Columbia?

Strangely enough, nobody aside from ergman is a confirmed Canadian (who lives in Ontario).

Funnily enough, on an Otherforum I used to frequent, probably at least 30% of the populace was.

Greetings, fellow OTTers! I've been beseiged by raptor zombies and my micromolpies, not to mention spending time trapped in the pit. I hope to have time for some ketchup soon (if the micromolpies keep me at home, it may happen sooner than I think), but I did scan the current NP and saw the joyous and awesomeful news that ED is cancer-free! Woohoo! It's a good club to be in.

I also saw a lovely btft-colored by ggh, and a beautiful post about raptors from addams, and other molpish things. Yay! I feel better already.

This OTTer will probably be in British Columbia in August, but in southern only.

47d: Waiting is a cheap tactic to make yappocised molpies more raptorish

I was wondering how on earth that was RELATED, but then I saw it. Holy ch*rp, it must've been a bad crash, I don't even remember ever going to New Zealand...

Yappo, you amnesiac speed-demon, you! :P Also 1996H, guess you started young. :wink: The only one of those I've driven is the one at the top of the list.

I have been on, in list order:
1) an unrestricted section of the A94 east of Munich.
2) TX-130 between Austin and Lockhart (the high speed limits are just a bribe to get people to pay the exorbitant toll. It isn't working.)
3) between Katowice and Kraków in a bus.
4) I-90 in Montana, but that was after 1999 when "Reasonable and Prudent" speed limits were abolished.

Sadly, although I like raptorish driving, I never had a chance to really do it.

Oh... I forgot to include my footnote further up the page. Oops. Here it is:

CookNah, I don't actually speak any Maori (although I can sing the Maori verse of the NZ National Anthem) but this one is something I heard years ago and really liked.

Before the Little Wonder came along, I used to drive to Gisborne (6.5 hours each way) for weekends in the summer whenever I could. One time, when I got there, there was some festival going on revolving around the arrival of James Cook. There were Maori performances and lectures and partying and all sorts of good stuff. Unfortunately, I was coming down with something and got all feverish, which did no favours for my already substandard memory, but I recall attending an excellent set of short lectures.

In one, the presenter started talking about the idea of homeland in Maori culture, saying that it wasn't necessary to claim one place as a homeland - the Maori ancestors had made this their home, but that was not to forget they had come from across the sea. He spoke of the popular mayor of Gisborne, who was from China; China was his hawaiki tawhiti, his homeland far away, and Gisborne was his hawaiki tata, his homeland near. Having both was no disloyalty to either. I like that.

As an odd epilogue, the fevered drive back to Wellington was exhausting and I had to pull over to rest 2 or 3 times. When I finally arrived home, I went to grab the mail before going inside, but my right arm was weak and trembling, almost vibrating, as I lifted the heavy lid to the mailbox. I guessed holding the wheel as long as I had had knackered it. I switched to my left hand, but then that arm struggled and seemed to vibrate too. It took me a moment to realize that the light switch mounted on my mailbox had shorted out, and I was being gently electrified.

Ah. This is a nice vacation--to the land where I last visited during the time of the Voldeframe. But far from anywhere. I think Past-Me's finishing up her blitzreport, but it's taking a while.
