Bagpipes at the Man

Postby Teamdummy » Wed Oct 03, 2012 9:50 am

We heard this guy coming for quite a while, the ranger stopped him dead. The ranger then quieted the crowd down and stated that just because he could not let the bagpipes through did not mean that they weren't cool as hell.

The Ranger couldn't let the piper through what? It's hard to tell; your video is dark.
If the piper wanted to go closer to the fire than everyone else, then there would be a stampede I think.

Whoa whoa whoa! How come feathers are EXPRESSLY forbidden, but bagpipes can come right through the gate without a problem?!

Audio moop, is still moop!

(Really, I'm just jealous that I don't know how to play them.)

^^ Incorrect.

MOOP stands for matter out of place.

Matter is defined by somthing that has mass and volume. Audio stimuli, or noise has neither.

It could be called RANIME (really annoying noise in my ear.)
Can you at least admit that nuclear explosions are awesome!?

Nipple, est-ce que vous avez?

Speaking of bagpipes... Nipple, are you aware of the Reichenbach Day that is celebrated at Multnomah Falls, commemorating of the death of Sherlock Holmes?
By sheer luck, I was at the falls on that day (of course I didn't know about Reichenbach Day) and to my pleasant surprise, I heard bagpipes being played. It really elevated the beauty of the falls.
It was a one-of-a-kind moment!
In my world there's only legible and more legible.

Sorry, this was at the man right before the fire dancers/spinners started.
