GLR (assuming he exists, of course) can make rules for the OTT, as for the OTC, but only he/she/it can. To suggest we low life forms can is only hubris. Humility, fellow timewaiters, humility.

I agree with your issue in general, but I don't think that's a good example. I believe it was my post that unexpectedly got the Lego discussion going at full steam again, but I can assure you I read all the way up to the present time before posting that (I do not blindpost) and it still seemed like an open topic that I could (usefully?) add my voice to. Okay, maybe not so usefully, since IIRC it was more of a 'me too', but it did still seem like an open topic, from the recent-enough past that I got to it during normal post-coma/Outside tomato sauce. Given all the discussion that followed, I'd say it was not resolved.

Edit: Woohoo! Holy Helmentmonger's Highest Habitué!


Your post wasn't a problem, but I saw plenty of people who would post form 3-5NP back when the same subject was much farther along, and they were posting the same thing as other people who had posted from that far back.

But either way this flame is dragging on farther then I was wanting. In conclusion I wanted to make the point to people blitzing from a night of coma to read ahead, be mindful of were you are blind posting from as to minimize a repeat of things that have already been mentioned by someone ahead of you.

Well, technically administratiors and moderators can make rules here. However, they all seem to have dissapeared and given up on us...

Not sure we were trying for resolution, but clearly there was more to be said on that topic. I'd guess if a bunch of people just found the OTC today, and started blitzing the thread, and posted, "Hey guys, this is cool, do you think they'll build a sandcastle?" that might get annoying. I'm not too worried about that happening though.

It is pretty sure that however anyone posts, blitzer or not, some will like it, and some will not.

My suggestion? make them suggestions instead of rules. People have no problem ignoring suggestions, but feel rules are something which they should not break.

also, Ralph Waldo Emerson once said " foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines"

Fair point, though sigsuggestions is a bit unwieldy. I am going to hold to the no flashy-thing rule.

It was absolutely beautiful.. but I doubt anyone had forgotten, jetpac. I consistently get eyerolls from my friends when I exclaim "holy mustard!" or refer to time (not Time) in newpix. They eyeroll because they know I'm revering the OTT by this point. :mrgreen:

Oh yeah! I was hoping for more to the story, and am absolutely enjoying this! And again I say: "More!"

Nothing to it: You just gotta ING your own ONG. ING it loud; ING it long. Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to ING. Just ING. ING your ONG.

Even the molpy-minded adapt faster than a sparrow-raptor, absorbing new terms every newpix, whether it's from a discussion read while ketchup blitzing the pastposts, a sigcouragement response, or from the most recent B/D/G ONG. (Birds-that-we-don't-wish-to-call-birds-but-maybe-boobies-will-be-okay, anyone?) I wonder if the OTA, GLR, had any idea what would happen when he unleashed this marvel upon Outside minds, who now scan semencoffeebaconcancerbabiesonice for any sign of heretical mustard, compare the heights of creatures in centicues, keep the OTW updated and give each other Present Presents. Whether we be Amoebaeists or Loopists, Temporal Illuminati or Timewaiters, PFANPs or Mopey Molpy Momes, Trekers or thread-dwellers living in the Now, we know how to take any Madness that infects this needle-pulled thing in stride as we Wait for it together.


And this is a good place to end the KRAPpost. Nothing more I can add that would improve on this.

Of course, that's why I said "you don't hear anyone talking about [them]", it's "Meccano" and "Hornby", NOT the plural, that's the point I was trying to make XD

But yeah in all seriousness, I think we only have those brands in the UK.

(Sorry, I don't mean to carry on beating the dead horse that is this Lego vs Legos thing, just wanted to inform you guys what Meccano and Hornby were)

I'm so confused by this, hah. Pita? Sandwich wedges? Bread? :P

I assumed he was referring to buns? Like hamburger or hot dog buns? I guess they could also be called rolls.

I would have said biscuits (doubtless to the confounding of our English readers).


I think the 'slightly squashed' description is what's getting me. What bread is slightly squashed, but not squashed all the way (like pita)? Even buns, rolls or biscuits doesn't make sense - especially since I think the US and UK have different meanings for the word 'biscuits.' *groans*

Maybe RobIrr just wanted the word 'sandwich' all along.
