think () for () seconds
The Think () for () Seconds block is a Looks block and a stack block. The block gives its sprite a thought bubble with the specified text, which stays for the specified amount of seconds. This block is identical to the Say () for () Seconds block except that this block gives a thought bubble, while the other gives a speech bubble. This block was previously called "Think () for () Secs."
As this block gives a sort of thought, the block can be used whenever a character thinks something (such as in an animation). Another common use is when unpredictable text must be shown; it is an easy alternative to stamping characters on the screen.
Some common uses:
- A telepathic conversation
think [Hello human! I am a ghost named Taco.] for (2) seconds think [I need some ghost food from Taco Bell.] for (2) seconds think [Bring me some and I shall reward you.] for (2) seconds
- A display for text
when I receive [reading sign v] think [NO!! I NEED TO MOVE AROUND FOR MR. KING SIGN!!!!] for (2) seconds
- A radio's transmission
when gf clicked think [Attention! Hurricane Kuku Bird is headed toward Scratch City! Evacuate now!] for (5) seconds
- A character's thought
think [Hmm... What answer is correct?] for (2) seconds think [A is wrong, B I don't know about, C....] for (2) seconds think [I'll choose C.] for (1) seconds

This block can be replicated with the following code:
think [Hmm...] wait (amount) seconds think 
All text thought with this block is limited to 330 characters. If text longer than 330 characters were to be inputted, all characters beyond the limit will not be shown. This limitation also applies to the following blocks:
