You are right! If Helper is still AWOL, I propose we make BlitzGirl the new Pope upon her arrival!

The Poles. NP 463.

So in another twenty-one pages, we'll have a new Mome! Huzzah!

Several times Helper made reference to "outside duties", which may be the cause of the appearance of his desertion.

It's not our fault Cueball builds so slowly. Bring Megan back and we'll have something to type about.

Did anyone even send one? I think we forgot...

An alternative solution to the low pH level would be to send a group of Knights Temporal1 to politely inform2 the Outsiders that all their base are belong to us.

1 What does one call a group of Knights Temporal? Watch doesn't seem fitting when they're not on watch.
2 Better bring the trebuchet just in case, they aren't the most reasonable people.

We could toss this out for speculation: Do y'all think the left tower will be a clone of the right one, or significantly different? If different, how?

I'm kind of thinking maybe a pointy tower instead of a crenellated one, in parallel with the castles below, would make sense, but it really doesn't look like it so far.

They definitely need to make their Time.

If they're building a larger version of any of the sandcastles below the platform, the castle just below him, on the left (with the two pointy towers capped with flags) seems to be a match.

Close. "Forknight"

and then the Fort of the Forknight.

They prod with the Thrice Timed Fork. Or is it the Twice Tined Fork? Whichever.

Low solution pH is easy enough remedy, just titrate in a couple of ml's of 10M KOH :lol:

If Z is one meter maybe they are jamming the boards into the sides of the universe for better stability.

That's one of the best sentences I've ever heard. Might need to sig that.

Not a member but perhaps you may want to simplify it to Fort Fortknight Knights Temporal, and the temporal vortex within the fort would be the Fort Fortknight Knights Temporal temporal vortex

Spork would be better for castle manipulations.

I just popped them out of my NuWave oven. They're a little toasty because I forgot that sometimes cookies solidify when cooling so I kept them in for longer than I should have, but they're still quite good. I used craisins instead of raisins, eliminated the chocolate because I'm apparently allergic, and didn't use any nuts because of lack of supplies. But YUMMY! THANK YOU PERSON!

Edit: Oatmeal cookies count as breakfast, right?


Yes. They are the original breakfast bar. I assume your process was a little like this...

No, it's not that complicated... It's simply a "knumber of Knights"...
