Of course, as a citizen of the USA, who speaks English and is called by the name of one of two contintents, I have lot of room to complain.

I've been wondering, if Dutch is the language of the Netherlands, does that mean Double Dutch is spoken in Never Never Land?

Also added direct links to pages of the Book of Time from the navigator. Now you all have no excuses for writing lots of fun stuff in there.


"links to the outside" is now including links to the inside... is this deliberate?

Kind of deliberate... I loosened the criteria because I was excluding some things that people thought ought to be included. Could you let me know which links I'm including that you think I should not be and I will refine further.

I would say that anything on xkcd.com be considered internal (including fora., forums., www. and blog.). Perhaps any URL which matches the regex |https?://[^/]+xkcd.com/.*| is internal and all else is external.

- the valve-like device attached to the side of your house that you might attach a garden hose to
- a paper container that the grocery store puts your purchases into so you can carry them out

For the record:
- “frisdank”, or simply “fris”
- “kraan”
- “zak”


Do you like your fris fizzy?
How cool would it be if frisdank just poured out of your kraan, instead of having to get it by the zak?

That I adapted so quickly to such usage of those words, that it all made perfect sense, to me is, somewhat, disturbing. :shock:

Dutch is easier than you think, you just read it out loud. (Well that works for frisdank=fizzydrink and zak=sack, not so much for kraan.) Practical test: what do you think "doe-het-zelf" means?

I'm so confused by this, hah. Pita? Sandwich wedges? Bread? :P

I assumed he was referring to buns? Like hamburger or hot dog buns? I guess they could also be called rolls.

On their own? Cobs (if riverish) or baps (if seaish).
Filled with bacon? Butties.
With cheese? Rolls.

I think the better question is, who decided it'd be a good idea to make a single button that turns off everything? I mean, that's almost as bad as this guy, who puts "self destruct" buttons on everything...

@Valarya - I can image you (a southerner) saying that, but maybe as "five thick slabs of blue cheese, yeehaw!" .... is that wrong? lol. :mrgreen: Mine would be "five, like, thick slabs of blue, you know, cheese".

@lmjb1964 - Nice rendition. Maybe that's what we should post as a response if the topic resumes. :)

Does this dialogue not confirm that the sea is in fact made of water?

I did think Cueball was referring to the body of water next to them as the sea, since they just drank from it... I don't know why he thought to bring it up now if he was talking about back at home.

He's probably wondering about that because it makes him doubt their theory that the river2 is what makes the sea1 rise.

Ah The Madness. I remember that amusing period of the OTT. It's amazing how this thread has evolved to the point where I'm pretty sure are totally resistant to any of those type of filtering tricks. We adapt like a well oiled immune system.

I think it's implied that it's "better than before." Like you would say "I'm getting better," well better than what? Better than when you were sick or whatever.
Unless that was a rhetorical question meant to induce silly discussion in which case I entirely missed the point :P

Maybe they're not as clueless as we thought. If the sea was receiving a large input of freshwater, then it would taste less and less salty as the areas near the coast were inundated with the less-dense freshwater.

When Cueball tasted the sea in the sandcastle era, he remarked "I've had worse." I think he meant that literally (that the sea had tasted worse before), that he's remembering that thought now, and that he's sharing his observation with Megan.

Well, he said that he had had worse. So some time even longer ago he had sea water, which was even worse than it was this time. And now he's thinking that the river is making it taste less bad.

I took it to mean 'better than the river2'. Although it's weird that he didn't say so, which might mean that he does mean 'better than before'. But then again, he hasn't tasted the sea2 in a while (only the river2, and they haven't referred to the river2 as the sea1 before). Eh, I guess we have to wait for it and see1.

Pollution. All of this discussion has assumed that the river is fresh and potable. I've had stream water that tasted horrible, and sea water that would have been great except it was salty.

He's a real thinker! All this time we've taken him for a dunce and it turns out he's simply been thinking at a higher level than us, so we didn't understand. Cueball for class president!

Thanks for sharing. Welcome to Earth!


So, when I read mscha's quote, my first thought (not entirely unreasonable, given OTT history), was that it was encrypted, or Klingon, or...but now I find out that it is Dutch, and I am an idiot. :oops: Sorry for insinuating you were not from Earth. I'll just slink out of the room now and hope no one notices.

I did actually try that (when saving as a .gif, there's a "frame disposal where unspecified" drop down box which I set to replace) and it still left a trail :/

And I just now tried Unoptimise like you said - nope, still leaves a trail for me :/

But hey, at least I've got the one you made, so thanks! It'd just be nice to know how to do it myself for the future...

I like that OtherOther Comic, it is quite funny.


likewise! been reading that one daily for about 7 years. couldn't imagine the ketchup on something like that. :P

And me! Although not for that long, more like 3 years. I have actually read it all through twice (once when I first discovered it, and again maybe a year later). It's quite enjoyable to do a full read-through of, since unlike say xkcd, it's one continuous story. Doing a full read-through actually helps make the story much clearer in your head than by just getting one comic per day. So it may be a long ketchup, but an enjoyable one!
