Hum. They would travel North, forward to the lake of Gennesaret (sometimes called Sea of Galilee... yet another Sea...).
Of course, about 150 km are a bit much for ol'Cueball. What's the next eyecatcher they would meet? It looks like they would be travelling the West bank...

It would have been funnier if the prediction you thought was wrong actually was right. Then you'd be wrong about being wrong. That just feels right.

*cough* Well, according to the NewPix subsequently displayed, they said...

So, technically since you didn't qualify your prediction with the disclaimer, "at some point in the far, distant future of Time", your prediction implied the 'next' NewPix, and as such, was...

Spoiler:
...wrong.

Yes. May 10, 1994. I remember it well. I was living in the Detroit area, and because I'd gotten out of work late, I happened to still be driving as the eclipse was occurring, and got stuck in traffic behind an accident which occurred at an intersection because people were watching the eclipse instead of focusing on the road.

Actually I'm older than that. I think it was the partial of Sept. 1960 that went through the middle of the US.
I was just on "Five Millennium (-1999 to +3000) Canon of Solar Eclipses Database" (http://xjubier.free.fr/en/site_pages/so ... Canon.html)
and that's the best fit.
Edit
And the Montana one was Feb 26, 1979.

I got to watch clouds get dark Feb. 26, 1979, Pullman, WA. I was a poor college kid, that was as far as I could afford to go. Even without seeing the sun at all, there is something very emotional about darkness when it isn't supposed to be there. Now I'm a poor college parent, so I still can't afford to go see eclipses, but maybe someday.

My only experience with synesthesia: In a prior year I had sung [some piece I can no longer recall the title of] in choir. It was one of many pieces, nothing special as goes the rest of the repetoire. The following year I was in a monestary in Italy where the cubicles each had a painting on the wall, many of which were very similar and not very inspring (Jesus on the cross, gushing blood from the abdomen in a stylistic manner). There were so many of them that it seems they were the output of a beginning painting class or something. But a few of them were different, of them a few were quite good.

In any case, one of them42 was identical to that song I had sung. Not "evocative", in the sense that the Pastoral Symphony (of Beethoven) is evocative of a spring day, not "descriptive" in the sense that the words and music described the scene. Not "linked" in the sense that I may have seen the picture while listening to that piece some time ago. No, identical, despite their being different media, different subjects, and different contexts. They were the same thing. It was the weirdest feeling - and it was not a fleeting moment either. I had never felt that kind of thing before, and never have since.

At the time, I did not know there was a word for it. I've since learned that it's not unheard of, though it is not all that common. It cannot be described; you just have to experience it to understand it.

I missed a Chem exam to go see it, but it was okay as my prof. did too. (Only he flew to Winnipeg, so he actually saw it.) Where I lived/went to school we had sunshine, and a partial eclipse. so most classes went on normally, probably with most people not even noticing it.

On 11th August 1999, there was a total eclipse visible from Europe. My friend Poly and I found a flight which was gong from London to Luxembourg where there was totality, giving time to watch it and then returning a few hours later. As we arrived they announced there were two layers of cloud cover and no visibility, they rapidly arranged a new flight plan, took off without any passengers disembarking, they got permission to do a few turns over Germany so that we all got to see it from the air. We were back in time for lunch.

Wow that must have been amazing! I was watching it from North Cornwall where there was dense cloud cover right up until the totality. Almost as soon as it went dark the clouds parted and we saw the whole thing. I'll never forget it, even if I was a pipsqueak at the time.

I was about to ask if that was a statement raised to the -1 power, but then when I quoted it into the response box, I saw that the minus sign was just a close quote.

Nerd-sniped.

Fear not for with faith there is always doubt. I shan't insist on flogging you know for giving in to the prospect that this might all be for naught. Remain steadfast and Wait for it1.

Wait for it...
Wait for it...
Wait for it...
Wait for it...
Wait for it...
1It damn well better be worth it.

Ah, good sir, be assured that I was merely repeating some of the "Questions" I have heard in passing?, since that was a good time to bring up the most immediate quandary which had most recently perplexed us.

Edit
does this mean I qualify for a hat?
? no Sir Inquisitor, I do not remember any names. No, not the comfy chair and the chocolate.......

I think Lord Randall would have shown us the epicenes of the size of the bridge if it was a bridge.

If it were a bridge, he may yet. We'll just have to...

Today I realized that, at some point in the past week or so, I stopped going out and looking at the original link that I usually followed to view newpix. Instead, I just automatically come to this thread and start catching up from where I left off. All of the newpix are posted here (often multiple times), so there's no need to go out to the web to look for them anywhere else. If I always just catch up, I'll pick up any newpix I may have missed chronologically.

Now, if I can just get you guys to start talking about all of the other things of interest to me (TV shows I watch, daily news reports, etc.) I may find that I never need to leave this forum at all. :D
