keyboard : A large, solitary cat with a yellowish-brown coat and black spots, active at night, widespread in the forests of Africa and southern Asia. (A reversal of xkcd 1031, used in a similar way)

I should be a-coma, but I want to see if the keyboard leaps on them! (@Angelastic, OTT:888:15)

For some reason I expected a leopardraptor to be bigger (or is that keyboardraptor?)... (@BlitzGirl, OTT:889:18)

One does wonder how the raptorcat learned that stickhumans were viable prey. From what I know about keyboards, they are unlikely to attack people unprovoked. (@BlitzGirl, OTT:896:33)  ⌇  You clearly don't have a Model M. (@SkUrRiEr, OTT:903:3)

Knights Temporal : A religious and military order for the defense and protection of Timewaiters*

Also, from a few pages ago, why not "Knights Timeplar"? (@elementropy, OTT:282:33)  ⌇  Has no one yet suggested "Knights Temporal"? (@jjjdavidson, OTT:282:35)

Well, the religion split into 2 +1 different sects, formed an inquisition, and is in the process of trying to form a knighthood (I prefer Knights Temporal or Knights(') Watch, myself) (@Dracomax, OTT:286:36)

I propose that the Knights Temporal exist as the military arm of the Eastern Unorthodox Timewaiters (given that it is the correct one) (@Febrion, OTT:288:3)

* Provided they don't actually have to do anything...

Knight Temporal : A member of the Knights Temporal.

knp : kilonewpix, a unit of time equal to 1000 newpix, or about 41 2/3 dips.

kq : kilocue, a unit of length equal to 1000 cueballs, or 1.77 km.

The much smaller river [...] is flowing away from it at this point (it flows many kilocueballs in the opposite direction before joining it far to the north). (@AnotherKevin, OTT:573:1)


LaPetite : (or la Petite) Character first seen in frame 799, a Chekhov's gun initially (via social engineering, millinery, and temporal shenanigans) conflated with BlitzGirl.

Just in case it is just a french girl and not BlitzGirl I name her LaPetite! (@Latent22, OTT:381:19)

And I concur. LaPetite is the Chekhov's gun of Time. (@BlitzGirl, OTT:442:3)

... our last sight of the castle included la Petite dragging something into frame. We've been referring to her as a Chekhov's gun, and anticipating that the story would ─ eventually ─ return to her, anticipating that we would see what she dragged to the castle, and what she did with it. / But now we've apparently been shown the castle already destroyed ...

(Note that posts by @OrbitalFacePalm9001 frequently consisted of a single-line comment, sometimes following an unedited quote of a recent post; and note the origin of ROFLEL about 12 Newpages later.)

2. A recursive (self-referential) acronym: LEML Extremely Modified Linux (probably a reference to GNU)

[...] TLF: Next, a "Choose kernel". Only default option works. / B: What is it? / TLF: "LEML Extremely Modified Linux" / TLF: After that a blue background and everything works. (@balthasar_s (via @ggh), OTT:2560:16)

meta 1. A metasyntactic word or acronym, with arbitrary or unknown meaning.

Is LEML even a word? / I suppose it might be, but unfortunately I don't speak Basementish. (@BlitzGirl, OTT:1698:8)  ⌇  It's an acronym! And one of the best ones!

I'm a heavy keyboard leopard user so keyboard leopard shortcuts are integral to my workflow, and replacing Ctrl-click with middle-click would hopelessly break all the things. (@PhoenixRising, OTT:529:19)

What about leopet? And leopad if the leopard is on-screen instead of clicked-on. (@ZoomanSP, OTT:2202:5)

longpix : 60 minutes, the unit of time between two successive frames of xkcd 1190, after the first 240 frames, when the rate dropped down to one frame per hour.

I think that on the weekend, it is just going to update once every hour, instead of on the half-hour. (@boozledorf, OTT:169:33)  ⌇  New unit: Longpix (@AionArap, OTT:169:35)

loopism : Belief that at some point the frames of Time will repeat. (A theory still thwarted even within the epilogue sequence, which is non-random but non-repeating).

That's not the tide, the snow is melting. (@SBN, OTT:179:35)  ⌇  I like that theory, i am no loopist (@micdi, OTT:179:36)  ⌇  Snowism and loopism can coexist! (@pha, OTT:180:10)

LS&R : Love, Sex, and Relationships, a subforum of General. Maturity, kindness and respectfulness are expected, and enforced when necessary.

luckpix : An interval of 4 nopix (or 4 hours)

I'll be checking back after one luckpix. (@intheshax, OTT:1373:22)

(This is the time between ONGs of the TimeAfterTime frames, beginning with the lucky series by @Latent22, and including several subsequent OTTer-created Time sequels. Though the interval of 4 hours is standard, the phase has changed; with the first Beany sequence ONGing at 01:00 UTC, the Beany2 sequence ONGing at 02:00 UTC and the t1i MysteryONGs ONGing at 00:00 UTC. In any case, newpixbot waits 1/2 hour before posting it, so that a human can ONG the frame.)

Lucky : The raptorcat that attacked Cuegan in frames 2226-2234.

ONG frame 2241 (@mscha, OTT:897:4)  ⌇  Megan is telling Cueball that that was their family pet named Lucky, which they set free when it started growing too big and they realised it wasn't a housecat. Cueball is expressing concern that she might have hurt Lucky. (@Angelastic, OTT:897:6)

Largest wolpy worries some. Too many times in his life his destination has meant a whole new family. No more, but how can he know that? (@SBN, OTT:1954:6)  ⌇  SBN, glad LW is doing OK after his condiment incident. (@lmjb1964, OTT:1955:5)

The black wolpies don't get called little very often and two makes a pretty good army, except their weapon is fluff. Incidentally, LW turns 4 todip. (@SBN, OTT:2018:28)

Todip is Black Wolpy Dip. LW and MSW are available for your admiration, adoration and appreciation. (@SBN, OTT:2118:7)

LW and I explored our new neighborhood some yesterday. (@SBN, OTT:2212:7)

LWPAII : Acronym made from the first letters of dialogue from the first six frames that have dialogue: Later. ; Wanna swim?; Pffthh *cough*; Any idea where...; I don't understand...; I don't think....

Let's speculate how this is a sign of the relationship of Randall, his career, coffee and/or the purpose of life. And how the first letters of all the frames with dialogues in them spell a very disturbing word. (@Montov, OTT:250:19)  ⌇  And what word would that be? (@Kat, OTT:250:21)  ⌇  "LWPAII", apparently.

Megball : 1. Megan and Cueball (long-lived rival to the somewhat more common Cuegan)

I'm actually rather fond of "Megball"... although it sounds like an obscure sport of some kind. (@yappobiscuits, OTT:455:2)

There were lots of loop theories when Megball stopped to sit on a slope. (@RobIrr, OTT:490:34)

No comment on the cactuspalmthingy, Megball? Is it not even worth a "neat"? (@yappobiscuits, OTT:734:9)

Where do you think the Beanies are leading Megball to? (@AluisioASG, OTT:1116:9)

Did you notice … / … the relation between Megball? (@SilentTimer, OTT:2226:19)

2. The relationship between Megan and Cueball.

meowmolpy : A cat.

My meowmolpy (I forget who I'm stealing that from) used to want to drink out of the bathroom sink. (@lmjb1964, OTT:841:17)

meowlpy : n. 1. A cat. (also meowpy, meowply)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to try to get this hat and mask onto my meowlpy... (@lmjb1964, OTT:875:8)

I loved the chirps, but they drove my meowlpy crazy. She couldn't figure out where the bird was. (@lmjb1964, OTT:1117:23)

2. A big cat, such as Lucky.

Hopefully the meowlpy wasn't rabid! Then all is doomed. I don't think they have the knowledge of vaccination. (@Goggalor, OTT:902:3)

Looks like he picked up some more meowpy defense ammo (= stones). (@mscha, OTT:968:18)

v. 1. Vaguely-defined verb used with down as a substitute for "molpy" (particularly if accompanied by a cat image).

Time for this Waiter, also, to molpy (meowlpy?) down. (@fhorn, OTT:1064:25)

MFFS : Molpy Food Funding Source. (see FFS and WOMFFS)

millinewpix : n. 1. An interval of time equal to 1/1000 os a newpix (q.v.) (also, millinewpic)

1 newpic is 60*60=3600 seconds / 1000/3600 = 5/18 = .2[77] millinewpix = 1 second (@SPACKlick, OTT:456:4)

THAT made me laugh out very, very loud forhalf a minute8 millinewpix! (@lassehp, OTT:532:8)

Currently at NewPix 6 with: 3 buckets, 4 active Newpixbots, and 1 trebuchet. 0.3 sand/milliNewPix. (@Eternal Density, OTT:1442:21)

I started by downloading the whole thing in both formats (full and printable) with a random delay of 3d7 millinewpix between page loads to prevent smashing the server [...] (@mrob27, OTT:1482:14)

According to the Wikipedia article, the seaish raftcastle Titanic was steaming at 22 knots kilocue per newpix3 [and] the forward portion was going at about 25-30 mph Megans per millinewpix when it reached the bottom. [...] / 3 "1 mph = 1 Megan per millinewpix" would be exact if Megan were 5.12 feet tall. (@mrob27, OTT:2009:9)

We already have a pretty good time units (knp = kilonewpix, np, mnp = millinewpix, etc), and distance units (kq = kilocue, q = cueball, etc.), and this would round it out quite OTTishly. (@mrob27, OTT:2114:11)

For convenience we'll [assume] that the acceleration/gravity is 9.80665 m/s2. For those keeping track, that's about 71.805 q/mnp2 (cueballs per millinewpix per millinewpix). (@mrob27, OTT:2119:19)

2. Any comparably short interval of time.

And now I can't not see it that way. I wonder how long until GLR starts sneaking some hidden illusions in... of course, we'd pick up on them in a millinewpic (@HES, OTT:607:39)

For a second millinewpix... I thought you were trying to quote Justin Bieber... (@kenmelken, OTT:786:2)

Oh. This one? / image / *counts tails* Wait a millinewpix...I don't think those are tails... (@BlitzGirl, OTT:1559:25)

Do different mips have different names or different lengths? (@Latent22, OTT:554:13)

It is certainly interesting to note that this social experiment nerd snipe comic has been going for over a month mip and a half. (@slinches, OTT:573:28)

An extension to the "xip" system has also been proposed for wip, mip and yip. Which I translate as "week in pictures", "month in pictures" and "year in pictures". (@mathrec, OTT:615:6)

Or that could be for a 3-mip (is that what an outsider month is called)? period ... (@ChronosDragon, OTT:632:30)

4. To make (something) more molpish.

Yeah, these are tricky little mustards, harder than limericks. (@jjjdavidson, OTT:658:38)

6. A false belief.

Megan: We haven't learned why the sea rose. / Cueball: But maybe we were never going to. (frame 1601)  ⌇  Cueball, that's mustard and you know it. :roll: (@BlitzGirl, OTT:710:27)

7. Generally difficult and adverse conditions.

hacking up the OTT might mean hacking up our generally good-natured community, and we'd end up like the Other poor souls wandering amid the lonely threads in the Individual (Other)Comics Section. That's a fate worse than mustard. (@BlitzGirl, OTT:749:32)

Coma well, fellow waiters; may your mustard stay safely in jars. (@jjjdavidson, OTT:893:20)

v. 1. To cause (something) to have a flaw or error.

edit - Ninja comment got mustard'd (@Flotter, OTT:482:4) (NOTE: The usage in this example is unclear.)

Maybe if The danes and the dutch named their countries anything like the name of the people /languages they speak, the it'd be easier. (@Dracomax, OTT:641:11)  ⌇  But we did. (Nederland/Nederlands/Nederlanders.) It's the English – not the Americans, for a change – that screwed mustarded it up. (@mscha, OTT:641:17)

2. To diminish the quality or value of something.

A high BG number means you get quoted down a long chain, which ultimately gets quoted by BG. A high BG number is therefore the rarer case and could be thought of as more prestigious. (Edit: Well done lmjb1964!) (@Kieryn, OTT:690:28)  ⌇  So, I could seriously mustard some people up by quoting them directly? (@BlitzGirl, OTT:692:30)

adj. Containing mustard, or having the qualities of mustard.

Also someone needs to upload all the mustard frames for posterity! (@Latent22, OTT:482:33)

in particular, the "mustard" frames revealed that Randall was modifying a base drawing. (@jjjdavidson, OTT:525:2)

interj. An expression of displeasure.

Well, mustard. The complainers have forced Vytron to blitz in silence! (@BlitzGirl, OTT:620:37)

mustardbusting : n. (and v.) 1. Efforts to combat mustard.

And it's in your job title, isn't it? You're the Specjalist. Apparently the duties of a Specjalist include mustardbusting. (@BlitzGirl OTT:2595:2)

2. An unintentional euphemism. (Related to the "ceiling cat" and "domo kitten" memes, which you may Google at your own risk.)

I very, very misread that :oops: (@HES, OTT:2595:4)  ⌇  *tries to figure out just how the hamply read it* (@BlitzGirl, OTT:2595:5)  ⌇  Ah, I think I figured out the "misread." Ew! (@BlitzGirl, OTT:2595:9)  ⌇  ETA: Just realized what made BlitzGirl go "Ew." Embarrassed it took me so long. (@ggh, OTT:2595:11)  ⌇  ROFL / Oh god, I just looked at your avatar. I am crying. (@ggh, OTT:2595:14) (referencing this avatar image)  ⌇  ??? (@balthasar_s, OTT:2595:17)  ⌇  I'm embarrassed it didn't take me longer, I got it almost immediately after seeing the hamply's post... (@macraw83, OTT:2595:18)  ⌇  ! wow, / it's big! (@balthasar_s, OTT:2595:22)  ⌇  Thank you for pointing this out, I may never look at a soldering iron the same way again. / It does make his expression much funnier though. (@GnomeAnne, OTT:2595:25)

mustardy : Like mustard (usually in the more general senses)

Re: prehistoric Molpies: hmm, the Molpy Monitor may need to go back some time and see what it can identify. Not for a while though. (Mustardy Outside... :( (@mscha, OTT:692:9)

MYQM : Marrying Yappo Queue Mob

Can I join the MYQM?? / ... / ?Marrying Yappo Queue Mob (@Angelastic, OTT:960:12) (the 'Queue Mob' part is a reference to @buffygirl's 'hat queue mob', see phqmm)

Mystery : In the OTT's ecclesiastical calendar, a 28-dip period (one Orthodix OTTish mip) beginning on the Outsider dip called "the 2nd of December".

mysteryONG : Early name for SilentONG, before it was revealed that the images came from @SilentTimer.

Okay, there's more than three. I think the mysteryONGs are safe from superraptors. (@slinches, OTT:1635:8)
