Yay! Can't say it looks much like "Stop" in either Hebrew (להפסיק) or Arabic (توقف). The one at the top of this image sorta kinda looks like it (the one that also says ARRET), but I can't find what language it is. : (

Well, to be honest, I didn't spot the molpy in the animation either. I found it when browsing, full-screen, through my locally downloaded copies of the frames.

According to Wikipedia: "AM 5776 began at sunset on 13 September 2015 and will end at sunset on 2 October 2016."

I am not sure of the significance. It might make more sense to start a new story on a New Year's Day instead. So maybe it's just a coincidence. The date on the sign is probably not in the Jewish calendar, since there were few skyscrapers in Spain in AM 2983, and since it written with Arabic numerals.

Well, Happy New Year and ONG, anyway. I predict that Th* *nd will come on 2 October 2016.

Since Jewish holidays generally (always?) start at sunset, it would definitely make sense to start on New Year's Eve, as it were. That can't be a coincidence, can it? But what does it mean?

I wouldn't read too much into it. The start time might have more to do with newpixbot finally having some Time to teach itself to post this story, than the mystery author providing the story...

I think the only thing the stop sign has taught us, is that the word “stop” does not appear on the demolition notice.

Ah, I see. Or maybe newpixbot is Jewish and wanted to celebrate the New Year with an ONG! Although, the xe wouldn't have been able to post any ONGs after sunset, since that would probably be considered working. Well, anyway, Mazel tov!

Now with this gate, the weird purple truck and the robot trying to escape the fenced area, I feel this is going to be some kind of dystopian future.
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Yep, @ZoomanSP got it. It says "ᒋᐱᐦᒋ" (cipi"ci) in the "Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics" characters. The stop sign has its own Wikipedia page here.

I was going to say, isn't a Stop sign redundant when it stands in front of a sturdy fence? You would have to stop anyway. (Of course redundancy is molpish.)

But now I see there is a gate. But it is still not the sign I would expect there. Rather "No trespassing", "Authorized personnel only", or "Turning the Mediterranean into a desert wasteland prohibited".

Still, I realize that a red octagon has to mean Stop; it will take more than 11 000 years to change that.

And the octagonal stop (one of the 4 signs recognizable by just the shape) is only 93 years old and it wasn't always red.

I'm not sure that's our good friend WALL·PY. The tip of its nose is too red, WALL·PY has an orange, um, ketchup bottle. Also, WALL·PY can't sit still for a timeframe, while this thing hasn't moved since the previous frame.

Fair enough, but now that it is globally recognized, no one should see a reason to try to change it, I hope. Except religion, perhaps. (The Great Prophet says that a red octagon means Full Speed Ahead, praise his wisdom!)

I'm not convinced. I stand by my theory, however wrong it may be.

What's Tall Beanie going to do with that bucket? Scoop the incoming Atlantic water out of the Mediterranean basin? That's going to work...

Are you sure it's a bucket? It might be a stack of seismo traces or logbooks.

I'm wondering why the pinkcastle rolls on grey wagon-wheel pasta. I'm not sure it would be any better if it were a greycastle rolling on pink wagon-wheel pasta though.

If it was a stack of something, he would be holding it at the bottom, but it looks to me like he's holding it by the top edge.

So it can go past-a the gate.

COULD SHORTY _BE_ ANY MORE DUNEJUMPISH?

Postby mrob27 » Fri Oct 09, 2015 2:58 am UTC

Speaking of going past-a the gate, that little mol-pyro-bot WALL•PY could have gotten out the whole time: as we can see it's just past the "right" end of the fence and could easily go wherever it wants.

That's what I said up there! *points towards the top of the page* But Some People mscha said they didn't think it was our Wall-py. :)

Are they refilling the ink in the seismograph.
