Well, if the Others speak the same language as Cuegan, I wonder if they will introduce themselves by name, and/or by their relationship to each other.

I predict that Megan will just say her leg has been hurt and ask if they can help (it won't even be Cueball saying Megan's leg is hurt and revealing xer gender with a pronoun), and they will never properly introduce themselves.

Ketchupped; took all day.

Well. They meet people finally. For some reason I don't know whether to be pleased or disappointed that it's no longer just Megball.

ETA: I will, however, be rather disappointed with Randall if they speak the same language as Megball. At least unless he has a really good explanation for why that would be.

There's another instance of Megball turning into each other in 2649 and 2650 (geekwagon numbers). Also, Cueball turning looks weird in 2609 to 2610 (geekwagon again).

And the second looks almost (but not quite) like a quarter rest.

But I do feel like I recognize at least some of them.

Well, I guess I'm not disappointed, then.

Now, is that a real language, a made-up language, or gibberish? I'm hoping for the second option, since a real present-day language wouldn't make sense 10,000 years in the future, but gibberish would be disappointing.

ETA: getting tired of your shit, rot-13


I was more thinking along the lines of: "You look a bit like River Tam" or "Where are your hats" or "You looked taller on Yourtwitface".

yappobiscuits set to song;

TimeWaiter like Cuegan!
TimeWaiter like cake and cupcakes too!

TimeWaiter suddenly is pagepope.
Try to make decree nice.
All posts must claim something is made of

Nobody pays any attention, 'cause
We're too busy for that.

And, "LOOK OUT", raptorcat!

We all thank edfel's map.
We hear the "chirp"s and "Pffthh"s and "Pthuh"s and "bye"
And we hear Megan's THWAP.
TimeWaiter think someday we will know everything,

TimeWaiter like this++. :D Another one I read at home and was able to sing out loud. There were a couple of lines where I stumbled over the syllables, but I can't remember which they are, and it's 4 enough that that doesn't matter. I have the source tracks to this song if anyone wants them to sing over.

Here, have a giant Jaffa Cake.

++…a lot@.
@And not just because I'm biased toward songs I know and even more biased towards Jonathan Coulton songs. Although that certainly plays a role in the singing aloud part.

I wasn't expecting it to work, but I tried uploading Image into Google Image Search: nothing.
Google Translate on my phone couldn't do anything with it either.

Probably a made up alphabet and/or language. The question is, is it just random scribbling, or did the GLR actually create a new language (Beanon)?
Not that it matters, I'm sure we'll spend newpix upon newpix unsuccessfully trying to decode it. Image

Hmmm. A couple characters look like Hebrew script and at least one character looks Greek but otherwise looks gibberish-y to me.
