16 lasts for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. For the first 2 minutes 30 seconds, The Announcer makes the following speech (a.k.a. the 16 speech), after which there are 15 seconds of silence until the end:
"A greeting for the morning
Wake and stand up. Face a window, or the brightest wall. Place each hand on its opposite shoulder, and remember a time when you were accelerating. Lower your hands slowly, while you take five deep breaths.
A ritual for business
Set your work on a surface in front of you. Place a blank piece of paper on a surface in front of you. Recall a coworker's dream that has gone unfulfilled. Imagine it briefly. Now begin the work. With each completed element, draw a facet of your coworker's dream. When the task is done, the dream is done.
A meditation for the city
Select an inessential object and carry it outdoors. Place the object in front of a building that intimidates you. Take a picture of the object with the building in the frame. Show the picture to a friend in a different city.
A salutation for tomorrow
Stand on a hill with a prime number of friends. As the sun sets, throw a cube into the sky.
A prayer for data
Before sleeping, remember that you are a system, and speak aloud the answers to these questions:
What did I do today that I did not want to do?
When was a time that I made a careful choice?
Who did I speak to in a dishonest way?
Who did I want to speak to, but did not?
When was I not deliberate, and what was the result of my automatic action?
Is this linked? Weird image half way through the song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDGKQZf38vg Video put up by user oogredherringoog. Wikipedia says about red herring "As an informal fallacy, the red herring falls into a broad class of relevance fallacies. Unlike the strawman, which is premised on a distortion of the other party's position, the red herring is a seemingly plausible, though ultimately irrelevant, diversionary tactic. A red herring may be intentional, or unintentional, it does not necessarily mean a conscious intent to mislead"
OOG = Out of Game. I'd say it is irrelevant and most likely not made by Pronuncationbook staff
I agree, as PB seems to provide connection proof by posting related content BEFORE the video.
"The bystanders - now friends - had glimpsed a forceful motion; relentless and perfectly concealed, that could create and destroy and lift entire societies into the sky" from day 21 has a similar theme to the lines: "Push a shovel in the sand / Dump the sand into a pile / Shape the pile into a castle / Watch it crumble with a smile."
"Ask the clouds about the ocean" - PB is in the cloud. Nicole is in the Ocean.
"Select an inessential object and carry it outdoors. Place the object in front of a building that intimidates you. Take a picture of the object with the building in the frame." 32 has a line where the announcer says "Everyone can sympathize with taking objects outdoors and taking pictures of structures." The two may be related.
The first verse of A Song for the Stars is likely a reference to the Jar from 34.
