An unused t1i scene4! Steakish, SilentTimer!

Great wolpy costumes, SBN!

Wow, quite a few posts for a wipend. :D

SBN, those costumes are too ch*rpin' cute.

Yay for ggh and the rest of NZ!

Yay for more behind the scenes of t1i! Will there be a making of the making of the making of?

I wonder what the strip of greyish stuff under the pasta is? And are the Beanies heading back up to warn the others? Head for the hills?

Yes, any day now they'll prove that babies cause cancer.

Not too many young'uns coming by for candy so far. It's ok, I still have work to do on my costume. Yikes!

I wonder where we'll pan to next in the hidden ongs? And will there be a zoom out on the mystery ongs? It's either that or jump cuts between the dam degradation and the beanies RUNning.

And the black-and-white camerabeanie doesn't follow the elevator, but keeps filming the burbulent water. That's ominous, as if something more is waiting to happen to the breach.

Prediction: Krumble. Burble! Ka-splash! SCHPLRUTZ! RE-KRUMBLE! (Those are Beanish onomatopetic words, transcribed for your convenience.)

Haha, that is great! :D And yeah, the HDD platter is better, it fits better into scale. A trash can lid would be too big.

And of course, this would be a perfect strategy to get out of the shadow of suspicion. A double bluff.

Looks like tire tracks going up left, but the other trail (left to right, at the bottom) does not resemble tire tracks, but rather, crinkled metal.

Mysteries abound! Where's TheMinim when you need her to annoy?!

And what are those symbols under the recycle logo? (Interesting that the recycle logo has persisted for so many yips.)

Maybe we're about to see a big blowout in the dam. Then we'll have to wait to find out if the Beanies made it out OK.

I accidentally started a RELATED discussion in an otherforum, about virgin sacrifices.
J: "The going rate is twelve equivalent virgins."
HV: "Equivalent to what?"
H: "Each other."
J: "No no, the equivalent to twelve virgins. Watch for inflation."
HV: "I don't think I want to know how virgins inflate."
A: "Do you know how hard it is to find TWELVE virgins that are equivalent?"
J: "Bring it up with the idiots who went and flooded the market, it used to be three."
V: "Wait, so inflation makes virgins to multiply ?!"
HV: "If you search long and hard, you probably won't find any."

The sign means: "Store roundabout traffic signs here", but there was an imported ruler-disposing robot that couldn't read protobeanish. The mistake will eventually destroy civilization.

By the way, the Wikipedia article on Roundabout is extremely long and detailed, with a cute animated traffic flow diagram, slighty hypnotic to watch (two diagrams, in fact, for left-side and for right-side driving). Yay for traffic geeks!

The thesis would not be so difficult, all PWr's thesis topics are available online, the cover is standarised, and I uploaded the thesis itself once. The official abbreviation is PWr.
Parts of the bot can be seen in pictures I posted to the OTT before, like here or here.

BTW, here you can notice the car from bftf-0652.

Or there could be written what should be recycled there. And it doesn't have to be the rulers. They wanted to store them somewhere so they used this box which was meant for something else. Or there could be name of the recycling company, or whatever else. I've seen bins with
"PWr
E - 1" written on them. E-1 is the building number.

Usually virgins stop being virgins when they multiply.

The two signs on the recycling bin are not identical. It would appear that one may be a reflection of the other. Perhaps the sign-making machine suffered a glitch. Perhaps protoBeanish can be read in either direction. Perhaps it says "This sign is reversible".

I also wonder what happened to whatever it was that made the longer tyre mark.

I was tidying my desk this afternoon (no, correction, I moved a couple of pieces of paper on my desk) and I came across my printout of balthasar_s's steakish hand-drawn example of how the hidden-ONGs work. Having also seen the DIY bot that he built today,and remembering bftf as well, it occurred to me that although balthasar_s is wowterfully digitally savvy, he is also delightfully analogue.

The track goes off the quay. Between the poles. And it seems to be a car tire, not a bike or motorcycle tire.

COULD REDUNDANCY _BE_ ANY MORE ROUNDABOUT?

Postby mrob27 » Mon Nov 02, 2015 11:45 am UTC

Sorry @ZoomanSP, I thought you were referring to the "meaning" of the recycling logo and the "reading" of the recycling logo :? until I saw this and realised there was a roundabout discussion of the bidirectional writing:

Here is a vehicle used by China Post at a railway station:

The door on the far side is open, and says "CHINA POST / 中国邮政", and on the near side "TSOP ANIHC / 政邮国中", because in Chinese things on the sides of vehicles are written front-to-back. The logo is reversed but the individual glyphs (Chinese and Roman) are not…

@balthasar_s, Thanks for the links to your older photos and things. I've fixed the PWr abbreviation. I kind of think that the recycling box recycles things by sending them back in time.

And all the rulers are actually just one ruler recycled again and again... ?

The thesis would not be so difficult, all PWr's thesis topics are available online, the cover is standarised, and I uploaded the thesis itself once. The official abbreviation is PWr.
Parts of the bot can be seen in pictures I posted to the OTT before, like here or here.

BTW, here you can notice the car from bftf-0652.

ZoomanSP wrote:If the logo still means "recycling", then it probably reads "recycling" in proto-Beanish.
Or there could be written what should be recycled there. And it doesn't have to be the rulers. They wanted to store them somewhere so they used this box which was meant for something else. Or there could be name of the recycling company, or whatever else. I've seen bins with
"PWr
E - 1" written on them. E-1 is the building number.

A bin used for recycling pressurized water reactors? :shock:

*looks at the link to PWr's thesis*

Oh, that's what PWr means... I got it confused with PWR.

Normally, I would say it's an error caused by texture mapping (the texture is probably projected to opposite sides of the bin from the same source, therefore it's correct on one side and reflected on the opposite side), but that could be taken as heresy, so I'm willing to accept that it was done on purpose and it has a hidden meaning. :D

That's weird. It can't be to make the text look right in a rear mirror. The only advantage seems to be that you can stand by the road and read text on passing vehicles without moving your eyes. I thought the normal reading direction for Chinese was left-to-right nowadays.

Well, it's a strange world. NATO has a reversed acronym OTAN that can be used in French-speaking countries. So, a NATO vehicle with "NATO" on the left door and "OTAN" on the right door could be used in English-speaking, French-speaking and Chinese-speaking countries. Very practical.

Isn't it like multplying vectors - it results in another vector rising normal to the plane of conjugation?

Hillperson sure made a lot of treeish colorizations! Whatever happened to xem?

The cONGs camera is moving in this funny way because it's a drone, and airspace rules have gotten very complex in the several ten hundred yips since they were first released. It's probably avoiding all sorts of controlled airspace. After all, you never know when a manually controlled beanie bucket will appear in the frame, and a collision would be unmolpish.

I they're in a plane of conjugation, they definitely are no longer virgins.

It looks like a car tire, but there's only one track. Unless it's a really wide car and we just can't seen the other track.

ETA: How to read a PM without it being detected.

When a PM is sent it is in the outbox and can edited or removed.
When you open the PM from your inbox, it's moved from the sender's outbox and then it can't be edited or removed anymore.

phpBB remembers if a PM is a reply to another PM.
When you view a PM, below it you can see all the previous and next PMs in a small "message history" window.

You send a PM.
You get a reply.
You don't open the reply in your inbox.
Instead you open your original PM.
In "message history" you can see the reply without having the fact registered by phpBB.
