As I finish zarxing, something is always said which always annoys the heck out of me.

What is zarxing, what is said, and why does it annoy me?

From the context, I surmise that zarxing is something you always do in the company of other people? If so, is it possible to zarx alone?

Is something relevant also said at the start of, or during, your zarxing, that gives meaning to what is said at the finish?

Is zarxing something done for work? school? pleasure?

At the start of zarxing do you make the statement? someone else? is it some type of promise as to what result will be?

Do other people zarx? just you? Is it something that can be done by more than one person? Is it considered common? normal?

Is zarxing done every day? once a week? more often than once a day?

Is zarxing something done for work? school? pleasure? This

At the start of zarxing do you make the statement? No someone else? Yes is it some type of promise as to what result will be? Yope

Do other people zarx? Yes just you? Hence no Is it something that can be done by more than one person? Yes, and it typically, if not always, is. Is it considered common? normal? Yes to both

Is zarxing done every day? once a week? more often than once a day? Depends on the person, but on average, probably once a week to once every two weeks. However, on the days it is done, it is done often.

Do you usually zarx in the park? Whilst wearing sunglasses? Shorts? Sandals?

Does the thing said at the end annoy you because: it misunderstands what zarxing is really about? Expresses a different belief of why one zarxes, which you disagree with? Misuses key terminology? Is derogatory about how you zarxed? Turns it into a serious activity and thus diminishes that which makes it fun?

If other people are present, would they be zarxing with you? Or just watching you zarx?

Would it be right to say that there are certain types of people who are more likely to zarx than others (assuming that they are physically capable of doing so)? If so, is the relevant factor gender? age? nationality? religious/ethical beliefs?

Is the thing zarxed a boat? a surfboard? a kite? a volleyball? baseball? None of these Assuming none of these, am I OTRT? Your first guess was closest, but not very close.

Do you usually zarx in the park? A certain type of park, but not a trees-fields-and-picnic-benches park. Whilst wearing sunglasses? No Shorts? Usually Sandals? Sometimes

Does the thing said at the end annoy you because: it misunderstands what zarxing is really about? Expresses a different belief of why one zarxes, which you disagree with? Misuses key terminology? Is derogatory about how you zarxed? Turns it into a serious activity and thus diminishes that which makes it fun? None of these

If other people are present, would they be zarxing with you? Some this... Or just watching you zarx? ...and some this as well.

Would it be right to say that there are certain types of people who are more likely to zarx than others (assuming that they are physically capable of doing so)? I suppose yes, you could say this. If so, is the relevant factor gender? age? This would be a factor, but not the only one. nationality? religious/ethical beliefs? None of the rest.

Is zarxing a sport? No Does it involve teams? No Can it only be done on certain terrain? Yes, with svv of "terrain" Can it be done in the rain? Sometimes The snow? No At night? Yes

Are they: asking a question? A rhetorical question? Making a statement? Giving a reminder? A command? Is it relevant that you often leave stuff at the station before boarding a rollercoaster? do you think what they're saying is: cheesy? Useless? Repetitive? Obvious? Are they addressing you directly? Or all riders? Or some riders?

Are you asked do do this thing: before getting off the ride? When getting off the ride? Later? Is it redundant because it's impossible not to do as they say? Because it's completely obvious that you need to do as they say? Because there are signs posted saying the same thing? Because they already said it a million times?

HINT: The relevant sentence, as worded by Galfisk, is "Keep seated until the ride comes to a full stop." Aside from the word "Keep" being changed to "Remain", all of the words in the sentence are actually in the sentence (and in order), and the "remain seated" part has nothing to do with the redundancy.

Remain seated until the ride is over and the car comes to a complete stop? (Obviously if the car is still moving, the ride isn't over?)

Apart from "remaining seated", is there anything else that people are told not to do in the sentence?

Does the redundancy essentially detail exactly what happens when the car comes to a full stop? Or does it describe something that happens when the car stops, which could only happen when the car was stationery?

This is killing me...every part of the redundancy has been said, but it hasn't been put together!

"until the ride comes to a full and complete stop"? YES!!!!!!

**********SPOILER**********

Every time I ride a ride at an amusement park, it bugs the crap out of me when the ride operator says, without fail, "Please remain seated until the ride comes to a full and complete stop." It just doesn't make sense why the ride has to come to a full AND complete stop, because a "full stop" or a "complete stop" would do the trick just fine.

Nice work to everyone who worked on it, and to Galfisk for bringing this puzzle to a full, or should I say complete, stop.
