Have you considered that you've been friends since Time began?

Edit for unexpected poping.

Um. Include a stick figure.

If you have the possibility to shape the story,
you also have responsibility.
raptors, zombies, I don't see how it would fit into the topic of the phys story.
You could say, it's something from a different bag. (do you use bags for relocation?)
From the whole RAZOR full name I think only "observation" seems relevant.

Well, I was really being facetious, but then once I said it, I started wondering if there was actually a way they could work it into the story. :D

No, we don't use bags. It's hard to find bags big enough, and the raptors and zombies tend to rip right through them. We tried just buying hem a ticket and putting them on a bus, but they weren't always very cooperative and sometimes ate the other passengers, so we had to abandon that method. Now we usually go with crates; with a little bedding, they feel nice and homey, and only the burliest raptors ever break out of them to wreak havoc. Um, I mean, none of them have every broken out of a crate, or wreaked havoc of any kind. It always goes perfectly smoothly.

Hi, Moomin! It's been a long Time! Good to see you.

You send them by bus with 8 other passengers?
I always thought RAZOR was being very secret.
How to keep a secret when there are 8 people who see where you take them?
(unless being so obviously non-secret makes everyone not notice anything suspicious:
"oh, another raptor in the bus again. Do they make be-a-dinosaur parties here or what?
They are so good at pretending to be a raptor. Cool.")

Now we usually go with crates; with a little bedding, they feel nice and homey, and only the burliest raptors ever break out of them to wreak havoc.

If we didn't have to get new crates all the time,
we wouldn't have to go everywhere by bus!

FTFM.

:) And no, of course you need to put them on a bus with more than eight people, then people are less likely to notice. And sending them at night helps. But then there's the "eating the other passengers" problem...

Or maybe they were cooperative, but they cooperated with each other instead of you...
I know it's cheaper but maybe it's not a good idea to put more than one into the same bus?

Hoooooolymolpy.

It is a very special kind of "homecoming feeling", like revisiting an old childhood camping site deep in the woods of a foreign country.

Heresy! Do you know that we've had not one, but two blitzers who managed the entire Holy Quest in one wip ? Well, ok it was a little smaller then, but not terribly much. Well, ok, it was a lot smaller. Still, it was stunning at the time, and it happened right after somebody said it was no longer possible. I'm sorry, it's the Comfy Chair for you!

Lots has happened, including many Time-After-Time stories, and Time-Before-Time, and Time-Alongside-Time... There's one going on now (several actually, but one is particularly active).

Elders? Yeah, some are still here. Others are having a Long Pint.
Beanie talk? Lots of progress but no final conclusions.
No, the calendar you mention is not extant, but there's a much more Holy one. No Ponytail, but it does feature some of our favorite characters.

That's why I said "and repeated". 42bin repeated is just a string of 10101010101010101010101010101010101010... ad infinitum, which you can then break up into chunks of 8 to make octonions.

At first glance, that would seem to contradict my present next post. However, being a Pope communique, it must be a Holy Contradiction! :)

No more flooding. No more rock and mud slides. No more melting roadways.

May, the gentle month.

Long days of natural light; Time marked by the rhythm of cool Morning Fog and warm Afternoon SunShine.
After the cold, dark, wet treachery of Winter. Before the drought, the heat and the smoke of FireSeason.

May, the gentle month.

I wish it could be this way always.

But I don't remember now what place and which circumstances.
Anyway they changed in each round IIRC.
We had to tell what we would take into a bag with us.
I told that I would put another bag in the bag.
Everyone was like no what are you doing you can't you don't understand the game and so on...
But I thought
Why not take a bag into the bag?
Obviously we will need more bags there.

So that's where all the redundakitties are hiding...
Anyway, I'm with you, bagthabalthasar. Redundabags are extremely useful. I've packed bags inside bags before.

A known face! Hah! And teasing as hwell.

I just nanoblitzed the last few page pope reigns - and covered a good amount of Outside time. Comforting - it means one can possibly blitz through more OTT history per Outside day than new history is created in the same amount of time and still get some sleep.

Yet, I am still undecided. I'll check secondary literature, first.

I had some interesting Outside times, like kid on school, finally settled in somewhere (hence the empty workshop walls in need of Calendars).

Just been otting about as usual in here. Time flies when you're sawing puns.

Oh my, you - really unexpected (since your profile-linked Outsite lacked updates for years. And yes, I checked)!

Aw, that's nice of you. I basically gave up blagging once I moved away from the city by the Sea, which was quite a long Time ago. I transferred most of the energy I spent on the blag into looking for a food-funding source. And as molpish as a blag was, it was kind of lonely there. I like online communities better.

thiswhere did this bagslashery come from? This is some rather new stuff, isn't it?

The baggery in general has been an intermittent problem ever since the Bag Incident of Newpage 467. But in the olden pages there was no punsaw to stop the punning, so no bagslashery. Now the vitssågen can deal with bag puns, ja!

Maybe they're not Cuganites, but the people who run the IKEA they all seem to depend on. They stock the store by snagging rockets as they keep trying to build the Space Station, and that's why it has taken so many thousands of yips that even the moon has given up on them.

Of courses, the word "servers" can also be used for waiters, so maybe that door leads to a whole room of people waiting to serve someone food.

Hi, higgs-boson! So molpish to see so many OTTers stopping by.

I'm glad to know that people will still be quoting Monty Python 10,000 yips in the future, much to GLR's chagrin.

Hopefully they managed to get at least one rocket working before the Zanclean incident. A flood in an IKEA sounds chaotic.
Maybe it would look something like OTTercomic 735...

And the word "waiters" can also be used for OTTers, so maybe that door leads back to us.

I did think about making that qualification, but then I didn't. I still like the idea that they'll open up they door and there will be a bunch of waiters serving appetizers. Of course, I don't expect that to happen, anymore than they'll work zombies and raptors into the phys story. But hey, you never know!

Zombie waiters using physics to predict the path of a raptor through the server room to catch it and prepare a nice raptor meal.

If the Othercomic shows 500 levels in, what's a good estimate of the OTT's level? Our haberdashers are far more technologically advanced.
