No, but I've written software that's on 737 Next Generation airplanes (737-600/700/800/900). So some of my work is in use pretty much all the Time.

Kay. I just finished ketchuping, and now need to go again (I'm suddenly busier on the [heresy] Outside [/heresy] because I'm ENGAGED!!!), but before I leave, I want to bring up a duty we've been neglecting, namely, the upkeep of the Wiki (OTW) and the delineation of periods. That last official "period" agreed upon was "Cueball's Quest," and since then we've had at least another journey period, a wow boabab period, and a vineyard period. I'm sure some you smarties can break those down exactly into where they land by newpix numbers.

However, while we're on the topic of how we break down eons, eras, and periods, I'd like to suggest a bit of a radical proposal, namely, the breaking down of what is currently known as the "Journey Era" (already within the same-titled "Journey Eon1") into smaller eras. In the Sandcastle Eon, there were 5 eras, the longest comprised of 296 newpix. So far, this "Journey Era" has been comprised of over 600, even though there are some very clear larger transition points. For example, the first 3 periods they are walking along the sea shore, then the next four alongside the river, then they branch off into the hills and forests for a time. That wonderful map actually shows in brilliant visualization where some natural dividing points for these eras might be, all of them within the larger scope of the Journey EON.

Well, like I said, I need to go again. But, uh... talk about that and hopefully you brilliant folk can come to some conclusions on the matter.

Also, I think because it is a harder verse to adapt, nobody has enough guts to adapt that fourth Jabber-stanza. Someone needs to be brave.

Peace.

P.S. I've been in a movie and written 2 major papers, one scientific, one historical.

1EDIT: when I first published I mistyped "epoch" instead of eon.
In Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is 100 miles high and 100 miles wide. Once every 1000 years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. One time, I changed just the last sentence of this signature, and lots of you noticed. Image

    Jabber-walky

    'Twas midday, and the molpymurs
    Did dig and tunnel in the ground
    All flighty were the raptorbirds,
    And the beesnakes did abound.

    Fear the molpyraptror, Megan!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the the ninjashark! And shun
    the beesnakes that seek your snatch!

    They took their dilgun'rang in hand:
    Long time the sea answers they sought—
    So rested they by the neat "Neat tree,"
    And lay awhile in thought.

If we're all in agreement, then we're ready for candidates for the 4th verse.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

All right, since no one else is doing this (now watch someone ninja me):

And as in thinking Megan lay,
The Cueball stood, with stomach keen,
Sought berries for a snack that day,
And found a camping scene!


Or, if you'd rather stick to the pace of the original Jabberwocky, which means the climactic encounter...

And as in thought they let Time pass,
The MolpyRabtor, bird-and-hare,
Came hopping/flying through the grass,
And screeched to see them there!

The structure in the background is part of the thread. Each 'twist' is a newpage (numbers denoted). Each blob is a post. Each green line is a quote link.

@kenmelken CONGRATULATIONS!

Edit: Karmann's very own Karmann number (#1) comes from a post containing the text "six degrees Bacon" -- on NewPage 188, totally unrelated to degrees of separation and Bacon numbers. Pretty neat coincidence!

Bits of ketchup, some of them all dried and crusty long overdue, in no particular order (longer ones spoilered, shorter ones just suck it up already):

Nekkidness or not:
Spoiler:
mscha wrote:
Rule110 wrote:... but heck, they've been walking around naked1 all this time, it would be nice if they're at least close friends.
1Okay, this is debatable, but given all the minute details of their actions we've been shown, have any pix even suggested donning or removing clothes (other than bags) e.g. before or after swimming, brushing sand off clothes after falls, or anything like that?

Since they don't appear to have external sexual organs, that's probably no big deal.
They have been brushing sand off themselves (and each other), though, but not necessarily off clothes.

I remember long ago reading an anecdote about James Thurber (that I cannot find online): A society matron, looking over some of his cartoons, asked in shock, "Aren't these people wearing any clothes?" To which Thurber replied something like, "If you can't tell, why does it matter?"
I believe a scene in the Jack Lemmon movie The War Between Men and Women is based on that story, although it's been forty years since I saw the movie.
And Lewis Grizzard once explained why southerners say nekkid: "Naked means you got no clothes on. Nekkid means you got no clothes on, and you're up to sump'n."
(This has to all be connected somehow, but that's StratPlayer's specialty.)

The Molpy Connection:

The meter is mostly perfect, the lyrics are mostly wonderful (although surprisingly heretical, coming from you), and the whole thing amuses me tremendously. Bravo! [The entire quote block links to the original; BBCode sometimes surprises me.]

Decades from now... you'll still be having this dream.

azule wrote:And, damn, has everyone here been in a movie or written a scientific paper? I haven't done either. :( *feels unsmart/uncool*

The closest I ever came to publication was preparing graphs for annual cancer reports for a cancer center (I used to be a CTR─a Certified Tumor Registrar); I never got any author or publication credits for those. And I've never even come close to being in a movie. So don't feel alone. Lots of smart and cool people (not that I'm necessarily either) don't have Erdös or Bacon numbers. (But you can have bacon whenever you want.)

And, finally: Thanks, mscha, for all the molpyfly animations. I don't know just why, but these particularly tickle my fancy.

OK, I think I lost the Outside for a bit. Hopefully I can get caught up before I'm dragged off again. But to avoid a seaish post, I'm blindposting now instead of waiting.

Sometimes it seems like it is impossible, but I have been trying to keep up with the flood of posts.

Did I try too hard and fail? I was really hoping the D&J at Tanagra would catch on earlier, almost done watching all of TNG on Netflix. Oh well, something to work on.

Looking forward to Time travelling with everbody.

I like the sound of a WHOMP of molpies, but pancreas is pretty silly and so probably gets my vote. If we're still voting.

lmjb1964 wrote: I had to laugh when I read your post. I'm in a production of Into the Woods (which is relevant, since M&C just went into, and out of, the woods.) You're so right about the stage direction--the book has directions like "nervously," "giggles," "calm and cold," and it's just so silly. Like you wouldn't know that was the intention from the line itself. But of course it might be different if the play was meant to be read only. Though I think we should stage or film these stories that are being written.

I also found out that the director randomly cut a few lines. I can't imagine why; they're somewhat important. Arrrgghh, well, it's a student director. I guess she's still learning...

Back in the 1960s, we found after the opening night of our high school production of "South Pacific" that the number "You've got to be carefully taught" had been ordered cut by the School Board -- and our director had ignored that order. We performed it every night for two weeks. She was let go at the end of the next school year, and went on to teach drama at a college for several decades.

Well, that's a whole other level of stupid. My director's just being annoying, not ignorant. Rodgers and Hammerstein had a hard time getting that song into the show, I guess. Good for your teacher.

ucim, your next installment is fabulous! And OMR, yappobiscuits, this is hilarious:

Hm, that's an interesting idea. Periodically rotate out whose number the credits display, and pick an at least somewhat active user at random for each rotation (if someone's never been quoted, that wouldn't make for a very interesting set of [user]numbers). Feels a lot more equal than keeping it on one user. Or maybe stick to the people who have vanished?

I finally had a chance to listen to this; fortunately I had headphones on (not because I had any suspicion about the content but because I started Proteus again and don't want to close it until I finish exploring this latest island which I don't want spend the time on just yet while I'm still so far behind on OTC stuff but there's no way to shut it up!), and my girls have long since learned that sometimes when I laugh out loud I'm just not gonna explain the joke to them.

Hey, I like this idea, HAL. I think tomorrow we should get cmyk numbers. Three weeks without a peep? I said before that I got a thrill from showing up in Kieryn's top twenty, but that's considerably dampened by the knowledge that I only made it because so many others have disappeared.

I think it might be good to leave it for people who go missing or are on a long break, to serve as a way of remembering them and encouraging them to return, though it should shuffle.

Or at least what's left of a structure. A little more ruined than I predicted, so my future-sight seems to be a little cloudy. I won't take credit for this one.

Once again I have been kept away from Time and have only time enough to ketchup and post what little I have time for.

This is insane. The heretical outside world has swallowed my away for what, almost 2 weeks 336 newpix now. So now we have dune hopping, dinosaurs (time raptors, molpy1 herons, or whatever they are), plants, berries, insects, , the vestiges of human habitation, amphibians, giant frikkin trees, and now, a vineyard?!?!? At least some things, like Megan's clumsiness and the great wisdom of Cueball's words, never change.

Just freaking wow. Obviously, I'm going to be drowning in the great and everpresent Sea2 of ketchup. Good to see you all still alive and kicking!


1 - what's a molpy?!
2 - Big, tough to figure out.


Welcome back friend and fellow devotee! I know the feeling well as it has been difficult - but alas, I've only had to slow down for 36 or 48 newpix. Not quite nearly so long as you!

Sorry I've been absent from this discussion that I started! I got caught up with Real Life issues starting in the middle of the afternoon yesterday, and by the time I was able to come back to the OTT, I was already behind by 7 NewPages. It took me till now just to ketchup. Total elapsed time has been less than 24 hours since I kicked off Jabber-walky, but it seems like a lot longer than that!

kenmelken, your summary above is awesome and comprehensive. Here's what I propose in order for us to move forward (and to use as many different people's contributions as possible):
  • We'll use my verse 1
  • We'll use StratPlayer's verse 2 - the rewrite that follows the original Jabberwocky more closely
  • We'll use kenmelken's verse 3
  • We'll also include the twerk that yappobiscuits offered to kenmelken's verse 3

That makes our current version of Jabber-walky the following:
    Jabber-walky

    'Twas midday, and the molpymurs
    Did dig and tunnel in the ground
    All flighty were the raptorbirds,
    And the beesnakes did abound.

    Fear the molpyraptror, Megan!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the the ninjashark! And shun
    the beesnakes that seek your snatch!

    They took their dilgun'rang in hand:
    Long time the sea answers they sought—
    So rested they by the neat "Neat tree,"
    And lay awhile in thought.
If we're all in agreement, then we're ready for candidates for the 4th verse.
kenmelken wrote:For reference, the original 4th stanza of Jabberwocky is as follows:

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!



I so look forward to the final product with frabjous anticipation!

And now I bid all of you adieu for a time. Will be flying up to Detroit this long wipend for the Electronic Music Festival. I predict I'll be a solid 65+NPs behind when I get back. At least.

I will miss all of you... and the molpies. The beesnakes and the cakes. The noir, the stories, the poetry. So here are some cupcakes, to remember me by:

So, I decided to jump into the poetry challenges, as penance for my limited interactions with the OTT. Naturally, of course, such jumping occurred in the deep end. I think this is a form-accurate double dactyl in which each line is an anagram of the corresponding line of the opposite stanza. My goal was, in 44 slightly tortured syllables, to tell the story of the OTC's command to us, from the days when we thought this was a story about sandcastles to our fear of the distant future ... and then, in anagram, to condemn those who have walked away.

That's it! That is the game!

I wake from a coma to have my morning ketchup, only to find, to my disappointment, that what, perhaps, was another interesting moment in Time was just another passing observation. I had no much to say when I see this, and oh! Glorious! For when I was very young I played that came so often but never understood what I was to do. But playing it was wonderful, nonetheless. I even remember clearly the cover box -- except never the title! I could not remember its name but now I know. And now I know that it based on a book series, which I must find and read. Thank you Eliram! :mrgreen:

Such a pleasure to hear this from someone else who played this weird, yet so much fun game. It didn't matter if you did anything right or wrong, you could simple EXPLORE a huge world of trees and roots, huts and other people who talked to you.
It was so rare in these days, so ahead of its time.


I found it! Here!. I intend to replay the game, now understanding what it is that must be done.

Congratulations!

Now I must coma for I've an unreasonably early start in the morning. I leave with what rvloon started, and I will attempt to finish (I hope you don't mind, rvloon!). *clears throat*
