That makes complete sense.

Hmm... maybe it's a suntree?


It... it does?! Cueball, sometimes you just shouldn't open your mouth at all, because when you do, we see glazed babies.


Of course it does: if a treewow, that can grow this big, decides that bending this way is a good move in life, then the last thing I'd be doing is suggesting that it's wrong simply because it is way bigger than me.

It may be way bigger than me, but based upon my experience with trees, I'm almost certainly much, much faster. and I have opposable thumbs. and a chainsaw.

Who gave the inquisitor a chainsaw? This seems extremely dangerous for those of us who have become accustomed to comfy chairs, chocolate, and burnt steaks.

OK, I understand the Inquisitor feels that he needs to be equipped to cut down the tallest tree in the forest, but we simply cannot allow him to have something as dangerous as a chainsaw. I suggest he be issued
Spoiler:
a herring!


Edit: ...some of the wow trees have two main branches at the top. I think this one simply lost one side, say in a lightning strike, for example.

I concur, a herring would be a good weapon.

On a side note: Well done steaks are not burnt unless you don't know how to cook meat.

While that may be true, it is immaterial to the post, because one of the recognised punishments of the inquisition is that we burn§ the steak at you.(as opposed to burning you at the stake)

This suggest that perhaps Megan and Cueball are children. Older than La Petite, but still you enough to think that grownups have all the answers, so, it something is big (like sea¹ or crooked Baobab⁸), it must know what it's doing.
I think footnotes in your sig is a bad idea... You can never change your sig without destroying all those posts you made with references.

Oh, it certainly is. But if we only do things that make sense in the OTT, it'll quicky become a boring (and empty) place. Image

(The footnote list is also a nice teaser for Blitzers: “I wonder what will be in the future that is pretty big and knows what it's doing.”)

Kieryn wrote:Edit: Also, when I quote you, like this, I lose your footnotes.

Certainly true. But I refer the honourable gentleman to the comment I made above.
(Also, of you see “sea¹”, do you really need to look up the footnote?)

¹¹: Except for that one time I realized I was missing “neat” and wanted to put it in the right position. I actually did edit all previous messages that referred to the renumbered footnotes.¹²
¹²: I'm gonna get in trouble when my default list extends to the 11th footnote... Or actually, not really. They're clearly labeled as default footnotes, and are thus overridden by those in the message.

A visual of the different zoom levels we have seen Megball at:

The first two are from the pre-expansion era, the third from after the expansion, the fourth from recently when they saw the baobab trees, and the last two from when they were walking along the river where it split.

If their smallest selves met up with their largest selves:

Of course, the biggest change was this:

It's drawn all funny to show us their perspective of the tree, because a tree looks very different when viewed up close as opposed to far away. The top of the tree (from the point where it bends to the top) is skewed to the left, as if it had hit an invisible cieling but had kept growing after bending 90°, or if it were a wall poster that's taller than the wall and has the top part pressed flat against the ceiling.
If that makes any sense. It's hard for me to explain.

While I agree with the posters who have already said this is a third (or fourth) tree, not a different view of one of the first two, perhaps this illustrates something like what you were trying to say:

Or perhaps not. :)

Thank you (and several others) for pointing out they had passed more trees. I tend to somewhat lose track of what's going in the comic when I'm kvetching up with the thread, and that was one of the things I missed.

That would explain the tiny replica of the sandcastle: Cueball actually made it as a giant-sized sandcastle for tiny Cueball.

So has anyone else considered that the molpies are actually the campfire-builders and/or tree-markers? They do seem to be quite clever, and quite shy, creatures.

I was under the impression that we were throwing well done steaks... Oops.

I think the Inquisition has done a great service to the civility of our forum. It is the perfect kind of Inquistion: actively engaged, supported by the community, and inept ineffective. The recognized punishments of the Inquisition give the suggestion of being pleasant, then fall disappointingly short.

So steaks smell really good when you're cooking them (apologies to our vegans), but when the Inquisitor doesn't stop, the heretic gets a charred, barely edible steak after enduring the promise of something savory.

It's a fitting mock punishment for mock heresy. We joke about the Inquisition for mock offenses (since we have enough sects to guarantee that any dogmatic assertion is heretical to someone). But it sets the tone for how we keep each other in line. When we have real transgressions (that threaten the civility of the forum), then we've already set the right tone. We're used to taking lighthearted threats from each other when we violate our mock forum conventions, so we've been responding well to lighthearted (but serious) suggestions to stay away from actual mockery or flame wars.

I know right! (I hardly have a clue what he just said) But no in all seriousness, for an internet discussion, shoot, for any discussion, especially one that has gone on for so long (thanks to the OTC) it is insanely civil. We have touched on so much and not just started a stupid war, it is quite impressive.

Maybe that was what Randall is aiming for with his OTC, is to have a generally civil, and long thread.

3. Phil Torres has also written a book called "A Crisis of Faith - Atheism, Emerging Technologies and the Future of Humanity"

4. A Crisis of Faith is a familiar trope and is a central element in Arthur C. Clarke's short story "The Star".

5. Clarke's "The Star" had a Jesuit priest who was horrified to learn that a nova that eliminated a civilization was the Star of Bethlehem.

6. Bethlehem is also a city in Pennsylvania, named after the birthplace of Jesus shown on by that star, and is also the birthplace of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

7. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had his first major movie role as "The Scorpion King," first introduced in "The Mummy Returns" and then expanded in the prequel "The Scorpion King".

8. "The Scorpion King" had a soundtrack with the single "I Stand Alone", recorded by the group Godsmack.

9. "I Stand Alone" was recorded at The Hit Factory in Miami, Florida. This studio was formerly known as Criteria Studios.

10. Criteria Studios was where The Allman Brothers recorded the studio parts of their classic album "Eat a Peach".

11. There have been recurring rumors that the name "Eat a Peach" and the album art allude to guitarist Duane Allman's motorcycle death in 1971, but it actually refers to a comment he made when asked by reporter Ellen Mandel of Good Times Magazine, "How are you helping the revolution?" Duane Allman's reply included, "...and every time I'm in Georgia, I eat a peach for peace."

12. Georgia peaches are world-famous and the name is used in many ways. There's even the Georgia Peach Award -- an award for outstanding teen literature.

13. The first Georgia Peach award was awarded in 2005, and was won by "The First Part Last", a book that deals with...

3. Gina Pellon became famous in France, but was originally from Cuba.

4. Cuba is famous for their Cuban cigars.
5. Cigars were customarily given out at the birth of a baby.

So, it's clear once again that it IS all related, and they ARE having a baby!


StratPlayer, I am mentally crowning you as the honorary James Burke of the OTT.


Wow! I am flattered, humbled, and honored. I love James Burke and Connections!

And did you know that:

1. James Burke was born in Londonderry, Northern Ireland?

2. There have been long disputes and discussion about the town's name, including efforts to formally change its name. Although it's legal name is "Londonderry" it is commonly referred to as simply "Derry".

3. "Derry" is also the name of the fictional town used as the setting for many of the works of Stephen King, including "It", the novel about the title-named clown-monster.

4. "It" is something, of course, that we are all waiting for, because the Alt-Text of the OTC tells us to.

5. While we wait, thanks to the talents of buffygirl, we have become a uniquely-hatted collective, much like The Red Hat Society.

6. The Red Hat Society was founded by Sue Ellen Cooper in Fullerton, California.

7. Fullerton, California is the home of the Fender Guitar company, started by Leo Fender.

8. One of the mopst popular Fender guitars is -- of course, the Stratocaster, used for my avatar.

So, what do you know? I guess there is a connection! :D

Consecutive double-dactyls! I tips me hat. I've been wondering if it would be possible to construct a double-dactyl (verse) that consists of three consecutive double-dactyls (words) (plus obviously an extra four syllables on the end) - I have plenty of adjective/noun combinations, but adjective/adjective/noun seems like cheating and I have not yet found a hexasyllabic verb...

Well, “hexasyllabicize” would be one. (An autological one, even.)
