Baobabs, got a dose of nostalgia in that latest OTTTT (OTT Time Travel):
Spoiler:
The Time Less Traveled

Two Times diverged in a forum thread:
The Now, and newpages long since made.
But which to wander? In my head
Current posting, the past unread,
Meant I would not be long delayed.

But lack context? I wouldn't dare -
So back into the past I went.
The One True Comic waited there
With newpix left by users fair
And discussions of religious bent.

Both Times that day appeared as just.
I chose the posts that had amassed.
And in Time, I knew I surely must
Re-glimpse the Now that was discussed,
Although by then it would be Past.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere newpix and newpix hence:
Two Times diverged in a thread and I —
I chose the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Thanks for digging up that bit of past treeishness!

Molpish otherthread idea, azule!

That's the first google image result for "Time". It's heretical of course, because it should be the OTC...

I misread that as "because it should be the OTT" at first. And that got me thinking - what image would best represent the OTT?

I'm not sure, but that's a much better decree idea than Comaless-In-Seattle up there. :P

Huh. Not sure. We sure have had a seaish lot of images on this needle-pulled thing. I try to picture them all at once and my brain hurts.

...And ninja'd, but I agree completely. :D

I think it is about 0.278 millinewpix. It is a rather stange concept, as the second seems to be defined as the time needed for some very riverish partilce to change 9.192.631.770 times, while the definition of a newpix is simply the time between two ONGs. Much easier to memorize and calculate.

Thyme time? No.
Time is Time. Thyme is not time or Time.

Greetings! I was held captive by the Outside for man dips, but at last I am free. While captive, I was subjected to a strange and cruel form of torture in which seemingly random numbers had to be entered into various random forms. My captors spoke a strange language involving "deductions" and "withholdings." I didn't always understand them, but I did understand that it was important to put the random numbers in correctly, since apparently that would determine the amount of ransom I had to pay to someone called, I think, "Iris." I don't know who this Iris is, but xe seems to be capricious and also apparently very greedy. The required ransom ended up being much more than I can afford, but I am at last free and can return to the OTT where I belong, poorer but (no) wiser.

And now I must embark on some seaish ketchup. I have passed the Beacon on page 1855, although I forget what beacon it was. I know it was sparkly. And I am looking forward to seeing you all in the future present.
