Proposal: Banana-Flavored Misjudgment

Rename the rule “Where You Be At” to “A Lesson in Rule Text” and rewrite it as follows:

Each Vegetable has five dimensions, the sum of which represent a location on the farm. The dimensions are Moisture, Temperature, Brightness, Weirdness, and Comfortableness. The values for each are the following:


  • Wet
  • Dry
  • Hot
  • Cool
  • Light
  • Dark
  • Normal
  • Strange
  • Luxurious
  • Painful

Each of the thirty-two combinations of these values denotes a unique Dimensional Location, or DL, which is tracked in the GNDT under the single column “DL”. Each DL is a coordinate in these five dimensions that represents a location on the farm, which can be specified as an ordered five-tuple, (Moisture, Temperature, Brightness, Weirdness, Comfortableness)

New Vegetables start with eir DL set to The Garden.

Each Vegetable may often change eir DL to any defined DL if that change requires that two or less Dimensions are changed.

All defined DL’s are described in this subrule, with any effects in parentheses. The Top Banana may edit this list of DL’s as e sees fit. All hail the Top Banana, supreme lord of the ruleset! Banana-ho-ho! Salute!

* (Dry, Hot, Light, Normal, Luxurious): The Garden (New Vegetables take this DL. This DL is also where Farmer Brown selects vegetables to be eaten.)
* (Dry, Cool, Dark, Normal, Luxurious): The Top Banana’s Chamber (If a Vegetable who is not the Top Banana has taken this DL, and the Top Banana notices this within the next 24 hours, the Top Banana may publicly humiliate the other Vegetable on the main page.)

When a new DL is created, it shall be added as a possible GNDT value under the column “DL”.

Replace the five columns Moisture, Temperature, Brightness, Strangeness, and Comfortableness in the GNDT with a single column entitled “DL”, with the values “Garden” and “TopBananaChamber”.

Set each Vegetable’s DL to “Garden”.

against How do you keep track of Moisture, Temperature, Brightness, Strangeness and Comfortableness then?

Since there’s a one-to-one correspondence between a DL and its Moisture/Temperature/Brightness/Strangeness/Comfortableness, one can simply consult the Ruleset to keep track of the five dimensions.

Alternatively, if someone could come up with a way for the GNDT to automatically determine a Vegetable’s DL based on the five dimensions, that would be excellent.

for  i still am dubious of the DL’s at all but if we have to have them this is an improvement
