I've seen it many times, even swam across Lake Shasta and back once when I was young, (and the lake was very low.)

On our family vacations it signaled the end of the boring part of the drive (or the end of the interesting part, on the way home.)

Suddenly, a wild Marsh'n appeared!
Spoiler:

But my Pokéballs weren't strong enough, so I lost him to an airraftcastle. :( But before he left we had a very molpish time. Except that I made a wrong turn (or a few wrong turns) and we ended up driving randomly around San Francisco Airport. I remembered when I dropped vvn off at his hotel after our meetup, I also made a wrong turn and ended up randomly driving around SFO.

We had a very yummy dinner of Indian food, and I remembered later that I also had Indian food when I met up with vvn and BlueCrab. So, if we meet up near San Francisco, be prepared for Indian food and an unexpected visit to the airport.

Wait a minute, addams, didn't we have Indian food in Sausalito? If we did, that would be weird. But we didn't end up driving around the airport, so there's that.

Yes.
We did eat Indian food. And; It was good.
It looks like a firmly established Tradition.

As each member of Time passes by to visit you,
You eat Indian food and become and SFO expert.

We went North for vacation, South to go back home. (With a bit of East and then West thrown in.)

We must have liked it, nearly my whole family has moved farther North. (Even I did, before I moved East and South. (And then Souther.)

Another blindpost, no idea where from - due to incompetent management I'm currently struggling to stay employed, which is seriously eating into my waiting time, so I'm finding it rather hard to keepit up. Hopefully things will be sorted out by the end of the year, if not I'll just have to keep complaining.

Dunno if I mentioned it before, but I've enjoyed thunk's double dactyls. At one point I wanted to DD back but Time didn't appear in the right space, and now those thoughts are lost to time.

Perhaps they'll surface with the tide.

At time of failure I was using AOSP Marshmallow, but not many dips before that I'd been using the stock Samsung (still on Kitkat!) rooted and enhanced with xposed.
I didn't see an option to automatically install all the same apps, but it wasn't too difficult. The tedium was just tapping 'yes do install' for each... and then acknowledging that I was happy it was installed when it was complete. Of course those two buttons were on opposite sides of the screen, so each time I had to take care not the tap the 'no I don't really want this installed' button or the 'please open the app I just installed now instead of going on to install the next one' button :P

It's all pretty molpish now. Except that I upgraded my Pebble watch's OS too, and the new allegedly better version doesn't allow me to change watchfaces from the watch but rather only from the app. That's very sad, as I always liked switching watchfaces on the fly.
Also I need to locate and install the OTC Pebble watchface which is somewhere in this needle pulled thing...

ZoomanSP; You bring up a cultural question for me.
I've only eaten Indian Food afternoon and evening.

What is traditional Indian breakfast food?
Good strong coffee and Wait For Lunch?

oops. Google says that is about it.
A typical breakfast in India varies depending on region, but is often quite similar to a lunch or dinner. A breakfast plate in India might include roti (flatbread), dosas (thin crepes made of lentils) or idlis (steamed rice-dough pancakes), and different dips and chutneys, as well as spiced potatoes.

Some more information:
As I told in this post it plays two squarewaves at the same time.
It is however possible to disable each one of them ad play only the other one. Or you can even silence both and play it without making any sounds.
A demonstration is here. As you can see, the dots of the ":" indicate which of the two squarewaves is active.
It can be easily reprogrammed to play anything else as long as:
- it doesn't require more than two sounds at the same time.
- the notes will fit inside the flash memory. The limit is somewhere between 3000 and 4000 notes.

Ah, the amazing waste products of cattle! I remember driving from LA to SF once up the 5, and I came across a smell - an amazing strong smell. I looked for the source of the smell and found a sea of cows. Cows covering the earth - it would be an exaggeration to say 'as far as the eye could see', but it was an incredible - incredible in that I really struggled to believe what I was seeing could exist - expanse of cow. The smell was the piss-soaked earth the cows stood in. There are sights of natural wonders that stun you - some say the Grand Canyon, but I've never seen that - for me, the ones coming to mind are the first time I saw the stars from the side of a pitch black road in the clear air of the country, and that sea of cows.

oops. Google says that is about it.
A typical breakfast in India varies depending on region, but is often quite similar to a lunch or dinner. A breakfast plate in India might include roti (flatbread), dosas (thin crepes made of lentils) or idlis (steamed rice-dough pancakes), and different dips and chutneys, as well as spiced potatoes.
I can vouch for dosas stuffed with potatoes. Mmmm. The couple that sells them at our local Sunday market says they have to ferment the batter for the crepes 3 or 4 days here. They say in India, it happens in an afternoon.

Thanks for the compliment, and thanks for reminding me – I could have included an explanatory link. FTFM.

And in retrospect I notice that, quite without intention, I followed both options of the previous page's decree:
SilentTimer wrote:Optional decree:

...wait a moment, I'm noticing something else: ggh, you've known in the past what a tanka is – you've even composed one yourself!

...and again I am belatedly noticing something: SilentTimer's pastdecree is itself a haiku! :oops:

Edit: On checking again, I feel a little less embarassed: The content of the decree doesn't really fit a haiku, just the external form. That, however, is very probably not an accident, given the placement of the otherwise unnecessary line breaks.

It is interesting to know that the OTC is coming to a conclusion soon and yet there are over a thousand new pages left to read. I look forward to seeing what content you all have managed to create to fill all those pages. The ~1236 that I have read so far as been truly enjoyable.

azule wrote:I was reading an article about redheads (who usually should be called "orangeheads"), and I figured out some thoughts related to Time (OTC). I made the following wiki page: Colors.

Basically we can know that Megan and Cueball's people have words for black, white, red, green, blue, and brown. Black and white are givens as all cultures start with those. The rest are mentioned in the OTC, except for blue, but it should be likely that blue is there too!

This also tracks, maybe, how advanced their culture is. We always say they're less advanced than the Beanies. Probably still true. If they don't have a word for orange... ;)
Great idea making that page - cheers! I'll echo what thunk said though: don't be too sure about blue - lotsa cultures group blue with green, or sometimes with black, although you are clearly helping with that:
In Through the Language Glass, Guy Deutscher wrote:Bastian also argued that Tagalog speakers in the Philippines had not even distinguished green and blue until the arrival of the Spanish colonizers, because the Tagalog words for "green" and "blue" were clearly recent borrowings from Spanish verde and azul.
Another relevant direct quote from that book:
People in simple cultures might spend a lifetime without seeing objects which are truly blue.

I've only had roti with curry, or roti with banana for an Indian breakfast.
In this instance, I was more generally open to Indian food, since I didn't know how my jetlag would work out.

I don't think it was supposed to make sense to anyone else.
It was a strange combination of ideas and references to things that happened in my life recently that just had to get out my head somehow.

I watched Andrzej Wajda's film Katyń for class recently. It was pretty dark, I have to say. Though Balthaniemcy's OTTerfilms helped me understand some of it, even without the subtitles.

I am here to report a ShirtTail OTTer Meet-up Once Removed.
First degree loved ones belonging to SBN stopped in to watch shooting stars with me.

We also ate hearty (ho-ho-ho) food.
And, we looked at ancient ash falls.

We googled the migration of North Americans over the Bering Land Bridge.
Spoiler:
The Land Bridge Theory proposes that people migrated from Siberia to Alaska
across a land bridge that spanned the current day Bering Strait.
We argued Pangea vs Expanding Earth.
Spoiler:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangaea
Pangaea or Pangea (pronunciation: /pænˈdʒiːə/[1]) was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras.[2][3] It assembled from earlier continental units approximately 300 million years ago, and it began to break apart about 175 million years ago.


**vs**
The Expanding Earth theory is an interesting idea especially with the stunning different visual 'evidence'. The Earth's continents appear to fit together on a smaller planet, to form a 'supercontinent' that would be the whole Earth's surface.
We sang songs and Poof!
So soon..they are gone.

Time has taught me so much and enriched my life more than I knew was possible.

EDIT: oh dear, Thunk;
All of that IS so dark.

I'm glad they were able to visit you.

Here I'm mostly moving boxes, and then moving the box the boxes are in, and then moving the boxes again. Then we move the box-box back to be loaded with more boxes. Little by little until everything is in the new WDOP.

Really? My Pebble still lets me switch watchfaces from it even with the new UI.

Also - we have an OTC watchface?

I've found how to do it, it's in a settings menu rather than with the forward/backward buttons. Those now scroll through calendar tasks, which is really more useful.
And we have two OTC watchfaces actually. The digitsl one is of sandcastling and the analogue has Megan holding the tiny trebuchet.

Back again with another Blitzpost. This one on the occasion of reaching 95% (2396/2522 NP)

We start this period with the 2nd Tymiversary, and as last year, Time was re-onged as it was in that first year with the stalwart help of Oldpixbot. The BFTF Ongs were also ONGoing as were the mr*bdex Ongs. During the period the BTFT Ongs ame to their conclusion (never easy to see T** **D, but every Ong must have one :() and the mr*bdex ongs seem to have gone into infinite slowdown.. is this a feature of the Fibonnacci underpinnings to the hotdog? That's how the bOTTifactors escaped the wrath of the King, they made him wait forever!

New Ongs have started appearing. Seriously steakish Ongs at that, it's two stories, one cunningly hidden within the pixels of the second. The overt story is of a couple of beanies on a huge structure that we think must be the berm at Gibraltar. It's apparently sprung a leak!
The second seems to be a story set a little under a millenium from now, of a futuristic city on the north side of the Gibraltar strait, a bridge across the strait, and a pink tanker pumping something rather nasty looking into the water. Not to mention a cute little mustard-ketchup-trafficcone robot...

There was a followup to OTTercon, an irc followup meeting. Another thing I missed :( Oh well, I still got to do the assorted jigsaws that have been appearing again.

This is my last scheduled blitzpost, the next one would be at 100%, the present. Blitzing the OTT has been a fun experience. As much as someone can who's reading a record of something after the event, it has almost felt like I was there amongst you. But in the not too distant future, I will be. Shortly I should pass my first blitzpost. How have they been recieved I wonder? Have I just been annoying people with them? I hope not. But if I have been annoying people here with them, I humbly apologise. If I see that I have been, this will be the last post you see from me, I promise. I thank all of you, OTTers past and present for creating the OTT and allowing me to read it.

With greate treeishness. It's sobering to note that even after 95% of your blitz is complete you still have yet to run into your own blitzposts! The thread has advanced by 1/20 in that time.

You have blitzed well, and have been rewarded with many layers of Time, each experienced in its own time. Greater glory awaits in the present. We will follow the commandments as decreed, and will ourselves be rewarded with your future presence, in what passes for the flesh of the OTT!
