That's strange, it's missing at least one outside link on my page. Not that it's a big deal, just wondering why that is. The one I'm thinking of is a link to the catapult game from a post on page 266 (which is, according to that same user page, also my most quoted post).



Yeah, that would be because my logic excludes any URL with xkcd in it. I will refine with tonight's reparse.

Have we used centicues yet? "The molpy is 5 cq high" looks more proper to me. Properer. More properer.

I should coma, but I want to see if the molpy moves some more! . Image

PS: For those confused by clicking Refresh to look for new posts with spoilers still open, there's a handy short-cut I use: Click the little Image next to the "by <author>" at the top of the last post. That should reload the page and reposition you back at that post, whatever happened with spoilers higher up, so you can carry on scrolling down.

500 newpages ago, it seemed unlikely to the thread-dwellers that Time would show anything more than Cuegan building a large Sandcastle.
Trebuchets, Recursion, the Scaffolding, LaPetite, the Fading, and all of the Journey Era would follow.
Nothing is unlikely, given enough Time.

Do you suppose that, with a bird of prey circling overhead, it may have gone underground?

Must have, but I wanted some swooping done by somebody, and the molpy seemed a fitting sacrifice. It should have stood its ground and died with honor for the glory of the One True Comic.


There may be time yet for such a sacrifice. Should the bird/Time-raptor choose, I am certain that it could continue to soar overhead for quite some time. If the molpy was real and went underground, I am also certain that it will poke its little raptormole head out at some point. We must wait for it.

Wait for it...

It is not too early for cake is it? Is there chocolate in there?

This iPad makes it hard to compare two frames with each other (mscha and geekwagon are glitchy). Where in the frame was the molpy? Could someone upload one of the molpy frames with its location circled or something?
