No, for while they come after BlitzGirl, they follow the OTC through the OTT. And they have done the same amazing pilgrimage that BlitzGirl the First accomplished, so they certainly merit a title that befits their awesomeness. They are a BlitzGirl (as the title carries no gender connotations at all). There is no higher honor.

The comic suggests that where they started there was a river as well (possibly a broken one). They have now walked along the coast line and found a second river. So I was wondering how far apart most river mouths were. To try and get an Idea I looked at New Zealand Rivers and found there were 1105 rivers in total. Not all these rivers probably end in a river mouth into the sea though but lets ignore that for now. New Zealand has a coast line of 15,134km which if we do the maths comes to 15134/1105 = 13.7km/river. So you could estimate the average distance between river mouths to be about this 13.7km figure. This gives some idea how far they might have walked already.

theory:
they are hyper advanced engineers for artificial environments and are just visiting a construct (maybe an orbital) of another designer. thus they don't know the rules of this world, and speculate about "broken" features.

it also explains their awesome castle and scaffolding building skills and the eternal daylight.

True, but most of those replies were very small and tightly curled up.

Maybe that's what's wrong with the river! It's too curled up!

Apparently the river is both "Not Broken" and "Neat".. it may or may not also still be "Small"

I actually am beginning to question the assumption that this is the river Megan earlier referred to as 'small.' When they arrived at this one, they confirmed that there were 'other rivers,' possibly implying that the one Megan mentioned before their trek was not the one they are currently at.

Woah, I so barely/didn't understand this. Except that the flow is not making sense when it comes to the sea level rise. Would it be possible to calculate it instead in reverse, from the sea level rise to find out how fast the river must be flowing? Although, I thought they said there might be many rivers. So that means you could assume N rivers and then we'll know how many rivers are required for this to make sense.

Thanks for doing the work. I was contemplating attempting a calculation....but it wouldn't have been as in depth, that's for sure.

Okay, let's try.
Let's keep the assumption that they are at the Dead Sea.
While we were at the beach, the sea level rose by about 2 m.
It hasn't been dark yet, so we're assuming all of this takes place on a single day. So let's say the Inside duration of the Beach Era was 10 hours.
That's a sea level rise of 0.167 m/hour, or 46.3 nm/s.
Since the surface area of the sea is assumed to be 810 km², the total outflow of all rivers is 810×1,000² × 46.3/1,000,000 ≈ 37,500 m³/s.
We calculated that river 2.0 has an outflow of 784 m³/s, so the number of similar rivers needed to produce the sea level rise is 37,500/784 ≈ 48.

Now caught up from my microBlitz between leaving work and now.

And... I heard a song on the radio on the way home and was like, "oh yeah, this is SO THIS THREAD!!!"

So -- thanks to enormous demand (or simply 'cause I felt like it)-- here's yet another Time Song Parody, about what we're ALL doing right now:


Our Mad Randallville
(based on "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffett)

If I'm a nut case,
I'm in the right place.
All my family starts to recoil
I show them this thing:
a forum Waiting.
They think my brain's beginning to boil.

Waitin' away again in our mad Randallville;
Searchin' for my last rational thought.
Some people claim that there's the ALT-TEXT* to blame;
But I know, it's nobody's fault.

I don't know the reason
I've stayed through the seasons
of newpic, longpix, and the fading, too.
But my hat's a beauty,
it was given to me,
after clearing buffy's long hat queue.

Waitin' away again in our mad Randallville;
Searchin' for my last rational thought.
Some people claim that there's the ALT-TEXT* to blame;
And I think, hell, it could be my fault.

I wonder when Time stops,
and this forum's closed shop,
will I still know the people back home?
After all Newpics rendered,
I just won't remember
my own relations 'cause my mind will be blown.

Waitin' away again in our mad Randallville;
Searchin' for my last rational thought.
Some people claim that there's the ALT-TEXT* to blame;
but I know, it's my own damn fault.
Yes, and some people claim that there's the ALT-TEXT* to blame;
but I know, it's my own damn fault.

I understood the unspoiled part the most. lol. Thanks! I think there could be one really big river, the small one at "home" and ones similar in size to the current one. The next question would be, are 48 rivers flowing into one sea a common or likely thing? BTW, where did you get sea size, is that the Dead Sea's dimensions?

Edit: I'm an idiot.

Until the moment you realize they are taking you to the butchery.

Just a quick about-to-finally-coma note that the time stamps of the oldpix have yet again changed.
Both the internal PNG timestamps and the external file system timestamp of all the pix (I've redownloaded so far) are now from May 1st.
My script is still running, but so far, it hasn't found any changes in pixels, apart from the known ones.

What this means? Randall knows...

Edit: as the script is running, any new (pixel) differences found will be automatically listed here. It'll be a couple of hours before all oldpix have been checked, though.

Oblivious golden remains oblivious.
but also prefers vet to whatever "butchery" is, even whilst oblivious

Oh well. At least we still have our sandcastle.
