I have noticed something!

latest xkcd comic (2121):
Image
The last panel
three ships...
on a night sky...
in a time when there was no light pollution yet...

Could it be
that it was inspired by this:
Image
(phys 62)?

Image
Clearly,
this is another example
of GLR reading OTT

Can you find more?

  2. add 409 years
  3. and then...
  4. We will know what time it is in the comic.
  5. (from scienceguy's point of view, not beanies', I mean.)

Try once more

You sent an SMS.
Looks like it worked.
But did it really?

If you were that guy you could now check if you received something.

According to dict.cc, wysyłać means to post a letter. So I guess that wysyłanie is the neuter form of its past participle and thus means: The letter has been posted.

SuggestiONG:
> Be that guy.

:) Hello, piratejohn, Revealer the Recent! Nice to see you here in the OTT (One True Thread). Pull up a chair and stay awhile.

And hello, Peaceful Whale! Whale-come back!

Here one for me and one for Jose:

Ah, so the guy we're going to be is not Wysyłanie. Thanks for that clarification, balthatranslate. FTH, maybe?

edited to put correct punsaw. As much as I would like to see BlitzGirl back in the OTT, I don't want to presume to bring out her punsaw when I can use my own.

At last, I have consumed all of my ketchup!

The arrival of my little man, who we have called Ethan, was a most molpish event - Everyone is absolutely doing wowterfally, and tomorrip he will be three wips old! Already he giggles in his sleep, which causes me a small concern that he will be both clever and mischievous!

It's lovely to be back in the Present, after spending... has it been mips or yips??... in the Basement. I do not intend to return to it any time soon, as I plan to only accumulate small amounts of condiment on a day to day basis, and consume them as regularly as possible.

I am completely enjoyONG the new story unfolding, and am learning from these frames some of the history of physics. I am, as well, entirely fascinated by the events in BSTA, and will Wait For It (although impatiently, of course; is there any other way with something so intriguing?).

Oh yes, I shall soon begin my writings once more, with the Chronicles of Cogface! He is essentially a reincarnation of Torgos, in a space-themed DnD-ish game called Rogue Trader. More details will be revealed (much like our recently revealed Revealers the Recent) as Time allows.

Stay tuned :)

Welcome, piratejohn, welcome forward, Peaceful Whale, and welcome forward and the most molpish of congratulations, Gingercat!

And I almost missed it, but happy 6700, ucim!
Apart from Forum Games, mostly active on the One True Thread.
If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

Addams thanks all of us who helped. Her life is much better now.

Hello, Gingercat, and congratulations on your new riverish human! Nice to see you 'round these parts again. I will wait eagerly for your new story.

And I also missed it, but happy 6700, ucim, and happy 10,000 (gasp!) addams!

Sorry, I can't seem to put the image here, but it leads to a comic that folks here might enjoy. Reminiscent of an earlier Time.

Anyone who was interested has probably already noticed the thread elsewhere on these forums, but just in case not (and since nobody seems to have noticed said thread), my three-year-long project of various things to Wait For that started with the Chronicles in 2017 and ran through Eternal in 2018 is now finally making headway on the Codex this year. Updating once every two weeks, next week's update will be the 1/3 point, the conclusion of the introduction, and the start of things getting really interesting. I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on things so far, and as they unfold, over in that last thread.

I feel slightly more balanced now. While a third daughter would have been an equally welcome addition, I feel that having a son now makes me slightly less outnumbered in a household where I was previously the only male presence. :P
