maybe it'll start dumping some goop up in there, blocking the straight. Or maybe it will release a swarm of beavers, to the same end.

The truckpy has been standing still for at least 7 frames now, so I'm not too worried about the brakes.
But what about that hose it's extending? Is it going to dump chemicals? Or is it about to fill up with water?

Hi, bachaddict! I didn't recognize you! The new ONGs are puzzling and fascinating. Give a few theories while you're here!

You neglect to mention that while these larger demons do like their coffee, they find cancer and starsand totally irresistible. By altering the composition of the black pixels appropriately, the beanies hope to stave off the demonpolcalypse. Later, other ingredients were added for reasons that are difficult to explain to a family audience, and snow was added in a last ditch effort to combat the heat, but all was lost and forgotten to the sands of Time…

I doubt a single ENHANCEment would show all the writing. Here I have enhanced it once to show the writing in the dry areas, a second time to show the writing in the brine lake areas:

(P.S. My favourite manip from that period was always this one by @higgs-boson, OTT:1171:14, even though they mis-spelled molpy…)

:azule: this demon theory is sounding better all the time.

And how do you know it was a mis-spelling? Maybe it was moply shit they ran into. Totally different than molpy shit. :)

It's a giant popsicle, and is being moved into a giant factory to have its stick attached. On the right is a stick of recycled butter; is this perhaps our own Buttermongery we're looking at? So anyway, they cook the wagonwheel pasta in the Mediterranean sea using the radioactive waste from the power plant that used to control the dam, and they put the popsicle in it instead of the recycled butter. As this is revolting, France revolts and the seismometer registers the combined stomach rumblings of the entire country. Uneaten, the pasta clogs the dam, the sea drains, the pressure builds, and the stage is set for the Beginning of Time.

No, it's not a stick of butter. It's a spaghetti box that was tipped over on its side, and those yellow things are the spaghetti spilling out of it. Seriously, though, it does look like it's on its side and the yellow things are spilling out of it.

I haven't seen anymolpy mention what's happening on the left side (as we're facing it) of the truckrobot. In frame 163 you can see something protruding from that side of the tank; in the next frame it's moved further away from the tank. By frame 166, you can see it looking like an inverted U sticking out about from the top of the tank. In frame 176, you can see something white on the left side by frame 178, you can see what looks like a large black hose hanging off of the tanker, with one of those white L-shaped things attached to it like you see on the extra wheel. I think it is either drawing water up, or discharging something into the water.

It also looks like there's some sort of flat thing underneath the tank that you don't see at the beginning, but that might just be the angle.

I've been previewed-ninja'd by mscha, but I'm gonna post it anyway. ETA 2 And by mrob, on the previous page. That's what I get for not reading very thoroughly.

ETA It's still nice getting ninja'd!

BE VEWY VEWY QUIET, I'M DEMUSTAWDING ROBOLPIES

Postby mrob27 » Tue Oct 13, 2015 12:05 am UTC

I like the idea of a moply, because then we can have a Moply of Awesomeness, and perhaps even a Wearer of the Moply of Awesomeness!

lmjb1964 wrote:I haven't seen anymoply mention what's happening on the left side (as we're facing it) of the truckrobot. […]

Just the "broken wheel" idea. After frame 166 @NoMouse, OTT:2386:33, wrote "Is the truck losing a wheel and is there a spare wheel conveniently leaning against that wall?". The idea was supported after frame 175 by @mscha, OTT:2387:29, who wrote "Looks like it's a wheel changing robolpy, probably about to fix the right rear wheel." Then my reply suggesting there was a hose, and then @NoMouse, both before what you called ninja'ing by @mscha. But your summary is much more complete.

I agree, it looks a lot more like spaghetti sticking out of a tipped-over giant spaghetti box. Maybe the spaghetti is for the giant demons.

Oops. :oops: Well, NoMouse's post doesn't specifically suggest the black thing is a hose. Yours does, of course, pretty plainly. For some reason, though, when I read your post the first time, I saw you mention something that existed separately from the four wheel of the tank, and I was thinking about the wheel thing leaning against the building. I was probably multi-tasking and didn't read your post very thoroughly. :( I shall clarify in my post...

I still think your description is better because it's more unified, complete, and coherent. I, too, have been missing things from time to time; in my case it's because of the higher volume of posts and trying to ketchup too quickly. This is all part of the OTT experience and in no way diminisheth the awesomeful moplies or their wearers.

See the posts with the yellow and black chequered patterns? Two of them mark the edges of a portal to the past (or future) like that in the balthafilm Takie Czasy. You go through the portal to a time when the buildings had not yet been built. There is another portal "inside" the building so you can then return to a later time when the building exists.
  Protip: Have some extra self-powered robotwheels lying around, in case your future self steals the ones you were using.
Or maybe you go through the portal and you're inside?
If it can work as a time portal there is no reason for it not to work as a space portal too (?)

Hmm, I never tried to use it as a space portal before...

Wait for it, I have to check something...

I've marked some recurring word parts on the sign.
Image
I'd guess the yellow word is a preposition and the orange letter is perhaps an article. Could the purple bit be a suffix, like a verb tense indicator?
I should have marked the words that occur on the roadsign too (the first word and the last in the second line) but I didn't. Oops.


ETA: Ah, Hammock Girl has returned with the water. Has she had a swim? I'm guessing yes; the tall beanie has frozen in his tracks - I bet she is stunning. :)

Steakish! But what language is the redundant sign in? Ah, never mind, just saw the file name. :) That's two things I learned from you todip; I didn't know what "alpha channel" meant.

ggh wrote:Ah, Hammock Girl has returned with the water. Has she had a swim? I'm guessing yes; the tall beanie has frozen in his tracks - I bet she is stunning. :)

Yes! She'll look at him and see him gazing at her, throw down her bucket, and they'll run into each other's arms, with this playing in the background. The seismograph will stop working since they haven't replenished the pixels, so no one will know a catastrophe is coming. Thus end the Beanies, but these two won't care because they'll be consumed by passion.

Ah, romance! Finally.

So, do I get it right: ggh's redundant sign is in Punjabi? But the first, red, word is the same as the first, red, word in the ONG sign? And the same color and font... But no other character is the same, I think.

Oh, right, ggh is a known image trickster. I forgot about that for a moment. Well done!

Ooh - you cut out all those spokes by hand... I was wondering if you had shot yourself on a greenscreen or something. Anyways, lovely job!


Laura Mae - perfect! Maybe if we all play that soundtrack as loud as we can on our computer speakers and think dirty thoughts we can summon our wayward fox....


Don't get nerdsniped with my redundasignage! I didn't translate anything properly; I just kept trying different fonts, looking for something curly. When that one popped up, some of the letters didn't appear, but by substituting some capital letters I could get something. Spaces came out as question marks, so I had to use invisible letters instead. This was my input:

Indeed, I did not even notice any black thing behind the truck at that time. And only after your debate, I realized that what I thought before was a wheel slowly coming off the truck was actually this hose. Now the question is - will it be pumping water from the sea or dumping whatever-could-be-stored-in-the-tank in the sea?

Brightened-up versions of the latest two enhanced frames. I was wondering how the hose was controlled, now I see.

Clearly, the tank is going to suck up the water from the OTTer swimming pool it has backed up to. All the OTTers will climb out of the (now dry) pool and go off to a small island in France, where they will spread the word that the sea is big, and does what it wants. Nobody listens to them, but it turns out the OTTers are right when the dam breaks. Thus begins the *nd of Time.

Yeah, Tall Beanie was probably thinking, "Hey! She wants me! She coming towards...wait, what?"

If I had the time, I would play the same soundtrack, but with a needle-scratching-the-record sound at the end as she runs past him.

Oh, you shippers! The seismograph needs more black pixels, and she just realized that there are no more. The tank took them and will be dumping them into the OTTer pool, where they will spill into the big, making it seaishier.

Thus begins the *nd of Time.

She has just realized that she forgot her beanie on the pile of stuff, and runs to fetch it. Because a Beanie may not appear in public without their beanie, so that their stunningly beautiful hair shall not cause impure thoughts among onlookers. (This rule does not apply to Rosetta, who is a leader and does what she wants.)

So, the seismo-Beanies are on their way to a more public place. It looks to me as if they were going to catch a cable car - except that going by cable car isn't so clever during an earthquake.

Or, maybe what looks like a beanie is really a hard hat or helmet. Useful in an earthquake zone (but uncomfortable in a hammock (although potentially useful in an extremely high hammock)).

Neither. A miniature black hole, like the one in this device is going to be dropped into the water, forming portals to Mars as part of a Netherlands conspiracy to drain the oceans. As it turns out, only the Mediterranean will be drained, because secret agents opposed to Holland's plan for global domination have sabotaged the project somehow, and replaced the other black holes with Folger's Crystals black pixels.

Well, Rosetta was indoors. Clearly the rule is there to protect one's hair from the vicious Mediterranean winds.

Short Beanie's hair does look a little tousled. And Rosetta must have gone outside without her beanie at some point, because she definitely had the wind-blown look.
