Yeah it was a bit mean of Randall to make the angle of the plank the same as the top of the miniature castle! Just to fool us. But maybe it has to be like that because Megan is so much stronger than Cueball

It was from the sequels, and I think they were some sort of squid/octopus/spider things and communicated through color. So they could be red if they wanted to.

Whatever happened to the theory that it was all snow instead of sand? It would explain the deteriorating dike as the water next to it would melt it much quicker.

Sure Cueball and Megan would have to be crazy to go swimming in water right next to snow, but perhaps they were just being adventurous, and the temperature was the reason they swam for so few newpix. It would also lend itself to the idea that global warming is behind the rise of the liquid, snow/ice melt from elsewhere around the liquid would increase the level much more quickly then rain.

Leader: It rains in the hills where the river comes from, right?
People: Sure.
Leader: Are there other rivers?
People: I don't know.

What could he mean by "other"?
THE river which comes from the hills is made unacceptable because it is rained upon. So he hopes for a different river. He wants information about what else is possible because the things he knows about are not suitable to fulfil his desires.
He wants to know if there are rivers which aren't rained on.

It is possible! Meanwhile, the Scaffolding is just in its infant stages.

I have enjoyed using Blitzgirls' post a sort of running history of the near past, And now we have a sort of causality loop where our present, is affecting the past, which is Blitzgirls present, where she sends messages to her future, our present, which affects us.....

Well i've just updated the Book of Time and it now has 650 filled out pages. Only problem is that 95% of them have nothing but a blank page so far. However since I scripted one mega edit that added 500 pages in one go I've now killed the wikia history view!!!! so you can't see previous edit history before my mega edit. Oops. :oops:

Edit: Crap. wikia lets you only see the last 500 edits by default and my mega edit was 498 changes on its own...

Well I think that you would be a bloody legend if you could take down a moving animal with a trebuchet! And the bonus is the Animal won't know what hit em. They will just think the sky's falling on them.

The Time Less Traveled

Two Times diverged in a forum thread:
The Now, and newpages long since made.
But which to wander? In my head
Current posting, the past unread,
Meant I would not be long delayed.

But lack context? I wouldn't dare -
So back into the past I went.
The One True Comic waited there
With newpix left by users fair
And discussions of religious bent.

Both Times that day appeared as just.
I chose the posts that had amassed.
And in Time, I knew I surely must
Re-glimpse the Now that was discussed,
Although by then it would be Past.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere newpix and newpix hence:
Two Times diverged in a thread and I —
I chose the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
