That didn't take very long for the message to get seen.

I'm hoping the temple is a 1970s style jungle gym.

Isaac ... Isaac ... action and reaction ... who could he possibly be a reference to I wonder ... ;)

Nice. So we have three MK-related updates about how Parson will be allowed passage by a conspiracy of GMWTA.

It's almost ... too easy. Never trust conspiracies I say- there'll be a surprise for our favourite CWL.

PS: I'm guessing the merry-go-round is the Caster Accelerator? Or are the bumper cars the Caster Collider?
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

Aah! Thinkamancer playground!

I'm sure people are going to analyze semantics and grammar and try to figure out whether this supports or refutes the "Charlie is the Arkendish" claim.

What's sad is the serious looks on the thinkamancers' faces when "operating" the devices.

Clearly Isaac Asimov :? (<--This emoticon was always here). Of course, after this page I think we need an Actions board to go with the Reactions one. On it you have to argue the side you don't believe in on whatever topic is currently being over-debated in circles.

Uh...perhaps partially (since Rob likes to layer and compound his puns), but likely not primarily.

I was joking. In retrospect I should have added an emoticon in order to emote my intentions through icons. In fact, I will go back and edit one and claim it was always there so you will look foolish. HA, how about that! :twisted:

Trotsky, whose law is "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"? Hmm?

Anyway, the math of nodes and such... well, they could mean different things, there, closer to what I would normally call an antinode. And some of them seem to be used as modes.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Now that that is out of the way, I find it interesting that playground toys are tools of amplification on erf...

Is the greater war the one on war?

Newton, who dat? Clearly Isaac Redman.

Runningbacks know all about forces and counter-forces. I would have gone with Mendenhall though... Redman is pretty obscure, Rob.

[/troll]

Also, the actions thread is a great idea. At long last, I can just argue with myself without relying upon other people to keep me distracted from work!

I love this update. I kind of saw it coming, when he was describing the "spring mount", but I kept waiting to see these serious devices of Erf science and ended up with a barrel full of monkeys. Fan-freaking-tastic.

Sad? I think it would be awesome if I had a special sixth sense that would allow me to investigate the world by spending all day in a playground, or exercising and running around. I stand corrected in my views on Erf science. Clearly some of them are trying, and those guys are alright in my book.

What would a time stamp for Erfworld look like?
Thus he came alone to Angband's gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came.- from The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

I think it's Isaac Hayes. Whoever he is, he's obviously a bad motherbooper. (Shut yo' mouth!)
