... we show you an organic - 'bio' - space probe.

Finally we know where this fond addiction to eerie spaceships materializing out of thin air stems from:
What happened next they could not ignore. With a noise like a hundred thousand people saying "wop'', a steely white spaceship suddenly seemed to create itself out of nothing in the air directly above the cricket pitch and hung there with infinite menace and a slight hum.
--Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything, Chapter 4.
Now more than one initiative had been started to actually collect and mix these 100.000 WOPs - it seems without success.
- The Great WOP Project. Once a substantial number of 'wop's have been collected, the great mixing will begin...
- 100000 WOPs: What is the sound of a Kricket Warship? So I'm asking everyone to record themselves saying "wop". Put include a few seconds of silence before and after.
- Welcome to yet another WOP project. This is not the first site with that purpose, but the difference is, that this site is automatic.
- The Torch Is Passed... That's right, the Great Wop Project has once again been passed on to new management. Why, you may ask? Well, it was a combination of my eternal laziness and lack of motivation.
Do we need a new attempt? Do we need a Facebook page?
This is off-base, I know. But there is no point in translating some of my German texts. Nevertheless, I cannot bring myself to accept the glaring gaps in the English version of this site. So this is German stuff, quoted on the English page.
The goal of the exercise was to associate freely or whatever. Participants should write a short story, each sentence had to start with a letter in your full name.
This is what Google Translate makes of the German version:
A pink spaceship lands on the secluded glade.
Slowly, the hatch opens.
No human being on this planet registered the historical event.
An event that will carry out a change in the timeline to the fact that the history of mankind is to be rewritten.
It makes sense is actually not to report it, since the landing of the spaceship will not take place in the other timeline.
Dancing lights appear to move on the outer shell of the spaceship, when the setting is reflected in it.
All members of the team have now left the spaceship and begin to bring the time converter in position.
Still continues the old timeline of the earth for 5 minutes ...
All of a sudden the existing space-time continuum is destabilized with the inconspicuous Click the Einschaltknopfes the time converter.
Slowly, the prehistoric life on earth newly created starts to rain.
