Unable to return to the apartment, the group makes their way to the Hibatsu Building. They discover a sailing boat named the ''Everlong'', which they use for their travels. Along the way, Travis and Don stop by Don's office to pick up his "build," a hard drive containing his latest work. However they are ambushed by three men wearing bin-liners, who steal the hard drive and take it with them. Don and Travis realize they can move through the jam if they cover themselves with plastic.

The group tracks the plastic men to the [[The_Myer_Centre,_Brisbane|Briar Center]] shopping center whereupon they discover a settlement of young people all wearing plastic coverings, who all engage in "ironic" behavior and worship "Crazy Bob." Their leader, Lord Awesome-o "ironically" executes somebody, leaving the group on edge. Tim becomes concerned with how the settlement is being run and discovers "Crazy Bob" to be the senile janitor.

Travis, concerned about Mary, feeds her a budgerigar he'd found in a cage. He soon discovers the bird, named "Whiskers", had belonged to the "princess" of the settlement, Ravenhair, whose real name is Deirdre. It soon becomes apparent that anyone who tries to leave the shopping center is killed by the jam, and Tim takes the opportunity to assert himself as a replacement leader. Travis also overhears X stating she feels responsible for the jam, as well as disclosing something known as "the Sunderland issue." That night, Don and Travis flee the center; with Don recovering his build and accidentally disturbing Crazy Bob, with the two becoming trapped on the roof. They two discover the cause of the deaths to be the work of Y, sniping anyone who leaves the center with arrows.

Don and Travis make it to the Hibatsu building and discover the settlement under a strict rule of bureaucracy. The head of divisions, named Kathy, instructs the two to return to the Briar Center as spies. Travis and Don return to the mall and manage to accidentally reveal themselves to a plastic person before learning that Tim is trying to usurp Lord Awesome-o as leader. After learning Y is the one killing the plastic people, Tim leads the group in order to stop Y and gain political power.

After a long struggle, X manages to subdue Y and stop his murder-spree. Angela and Travis also discover Y's identity card which shows HEPL stands for "Human Extinction Protocol Libra." Upon returning to the plastic people however, Crazy Bob outs Don and Travis as the ones who had disturbed him as well as Travis' role in Whiskers' death, causing the plastic people to turn on them and oust them from the settlement. After learning that the Hibatsu Building was the one who sent Y to kill them off, Lord Awesome-o declares war and sends his people to their deaths. Y manages to escape his bonds and kill Lord Awesome-o before dying himself.

Y manages to stop Lord Awesomeo and send them both into the jam.
   
Hibatsu acquires what little remains of the plastic population, and the group moves to the building, where Don reacquires his build. However, the jam starts to rise around the building, in response to the number of people who reside in it. It consumes Kathy and causes the bureaucrats in charge to consider killing off people to reverse it. X discovers an airship carrier named the ''U.S.S Obi-Wan'', which had been the one she and Y escaped from, abandoned out at sea. She and the rest of the group flee from the Hibatsu Building on the ''Everlong'', but Deirdre is left behind.

She and the rest of the group flee from the Hibatsu Building on the ''Everlong'', but Deirdre is left behind.
   
The group makes it to the carrier, but the jam suddenly destroys the ''Everlong'', separating Travis from the others. With X having hid herself in a refrigerator unit prior to the event, Travis locks himself in with her to save themselves from the jam. X confides that she is responsible for the jam but the two are rescued before they suffocate.

After boarding the ship, Travis and the others are introduced to Dr. Thorn, a scientist who works for HEPL and was studying the jam and its effects. Don also makes use of the onboard internet connection to upload his build, while also finding out the jam had only covered Australia. Dr. Thorn reveals he can create a compound to neutralize the jam's effects if he had his flash drive, which had been given to Y. However, he is soon shot to death with a sniper rifle he had used earlier. Travis realizes that the shooter is Tim and he has locked himself in the control room, intending to take the ''Obi-Wan'' out to sea.

Travis suddenly remembers that Don had taken Y's trousers after the crash, and realizes that this was "the Sunderland issue" mentioned earlier. Don discovers the flash drive in the pockets and uploads it. The gang discovers the truth behind the jam outbreak; it had been used for testing and was given to X and Y for transport. They'd left it on the roof of their car and driven off, accidentally releasing it and causing it spread.

The ''Obi-Wan'' is attacked by the US Navy, who had set up a perimeter around the continent. X and Angela are consumed by the jam while trying to stop the ship and Travis manages to save Don's life. Travis chases after Tim, who had taken a life raft and manages to jump into it for safety as the carrier sinks. The two confide in one another; Tim had shot Dr. Thorn because he believed that jam was ultimately a good thing and didn't want to give up his dream of rebuilding society. As the jam detects the two, Tim attempts to kill Travis to spare his own life, but Travis acts quickly and throws Mary onto Tim, startling him and sending him falling out the raft and into the jam.

The '''Ymyyakhtakh culture''' ({{Lang-ru|Ымыяхтахская культура}}) was a Late Neolithic culture of Siberia, with a very large archaeological horizon, dating to c. 2200–1300 BC. Its origins seem to be in the [[Lena river]] basin of [[Yakutia]], and also along the [[Yenisei river]].

==Google PageRank==
   
Google [[PageRank]] (Google PR) is one of the methods Google uses to determine a page's relevance or importance. Important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results. Google PageRank (PR) is a measure from 0 - 10. Google Pagerank is based on backlinks. PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. The underlying assumption is that more important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.<ref>[https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-link-building/metrics Metrics]</ref> However, Google claims there will be no more PageRank updates, rendering this metric as outdated.<ref>[https://www.seroundtable.com/google-next-pagerank-update-19902.html Google: When Will Be The Next PageRank Update?

The '''Kokoda Track campaign''' or '''Kokoda Trail campaign''' was part of the [[Pacific War]] of [[World War II]]. The campaign consisted of a series of battles fought between July and November 1942 in what was then the Australian [[Territory of Papua]]. It was primarily a land battle, between the Japanese [[South Seas Detachment]] under Major General [[Tomitarō Horii]] and Australian and Papuan land forces. The Japanese objective was to seize [[Port Moresby]] by an overland advance from the north coast, following the [[Kokoda Track]] over the mountains of the [[Owen Stanley Range]], as part of a strategy to isolate Australia from the United States. The jApanese scum were no match to the bloody British battalion 68th. Howeverthe Japanese had small ding dongs compared to the English

Japanese forces landed and established [[beachhead]]s near [[Gona]] and [[Buna, Papua New Guinea|Buna]] on 21 July 1942. Opposed by [[Maroubra Force]], then consisting of four [[platoon]]s of the [[39th Battalion (Australia)|39th Battalion]] and elements of the [[Papuan Infantry Battalion]], they quickly advanced and captured [[Kokoda]] and its strategically vital airfield on 29 July. Despite reinforcement, the Australian forces were continually pushed back. The veteran [[Second Australian Imperial Force]] (AIF) [[21st Brigade (Australia)|21st Brigade]] narrowly avoided capture in the [[Battle of Mission Ridge – Brigade Hill]] from 6 to 8 September. In the [[Battle of Ioribaiwa]] from 13 to 16 September, the [[25th Brigade (Australia)|25th Brigade]] under [[Brigadier]] [[Kenneth Eather]] fought the Japanese to a halt but ceded the field to the Japanese, withdrawing back to Imita Ridge.

Another notable sculptor who began his career during the Restoration was [[François Rude]], (1784-1847), He moved to Paris from Dijon in 1805 to study with [[Pierre Cartellier]]. In 1811 he won the [[Prix de Rome]], but he was a confirmed Bonapartist, and after the downfall of Napoleon, he went into exile in Beligium, where he had success as a portrait sculptor. He did not return until 1827. Between 1833 and 1836, he made the celebrated sculptures, called ''Les Marseillaise'', which decorate the [[Arc de Triomphe]].

The restoration of the monarchy with the coronation of Louis XVIII brought an end to the era of gigantic outdoor celebrations with patriotic music of the Revolution and the Empire of Napoleon. Instead, music returned to the salons of the old aristocracy, who returned from exile, and the new aristocracy created under Napoleon Bonaparte. The Music Conservatory in Paris was renamed the Royal School of Music, and the King commissioned [[Luigi Cherubini]], newly named music director of the chapel of the Tuileries Palace, to write a requiem mass for Louis XVI, as well as a coronation mass for himself. The composer [[Spontini]] was named director of royal music.

'''Diode–transistor logic''' ('''DTL''') is a class of [[digital circuit]]s that is the direct ancestor of [[transistor–transistor logic]]. It is called so because the logic gating function (e.g., AND) is performed by a diode network and the amplifying function is performed by a transistor (in contrast with [[resistor–transistor logic|RTL]] and [[transistor–transistor logic|TTL]]).
