Re: 1397: "Luke"

Keep in mind, this is a kid who's just discovered that his first-ever sexual encounter involved his sister! It shouldn't be surprising that he's exploring some, er, safer options! :D Is that ever established? Sure it's the first we see on screen, but I'm sure he and his mates on Tatooine must have ...

Re: 1360: "Old Files"

To all those who have complained on this thread on not being able to open those old files because of out of date programs / OS's, you really might want to take some time investigating emulators and virtual OS's. I have a Win7 machine running WinXP and 98SE on Virtual PC. On THOSE I have DOSBOX and o...

Re: What-If 0085: "Rocket Golf"

Randall's last line over the course of this maneuver you would be statistically likely to hit a hole-in-one ... at every golf course in the world. Umm, no you wouldn't... 1000000+ tries to hit a golf ball into a hole and then finally getting a shot in doesn't equal a hole in one. It sounds more like...

Re: 1321: "Cold"

Currently where I'm from (Winnipeg) it's -40. I assume this lies near the threshold between turrets cold and F*****************************k cold. I happen to like Celsius more than Fahrenheit because it *appears* more metric - even though it's really just Kelvin +~275. I also think we're missing th...

Re: What-if# 0079: Lake Tea

Am I the only one wondering if Randall tried to pull a fast one on us with the amount of energy in a bottle full of anti-matter? Does he mean a bottle full of anti-H 2 O? Matter is a little generic, anti-lead would have a different amount of energy than anti-hydrogen I would think. Where does the 6....

Re: What-If 0053: "Drain the Oceans"

What? How would that challenge anything? It's not as if the current model doesn't account for seabottom topology, after all, and that's all the new map really tells you about. It probably wouldn't -- I just never thought about it before. You see I'm working from a grade 7 or 8 [Pangaea] model in my...

Re: What-If 0053: "Drain the Oceans"

HIJACK Normally I enjoy a laugh at Randall's What-If's, but the end pictures on this rather fascinated me. I took the last pic (with Netherlands for fun) and applied some (very rough) plate drawings on it with some directional arrows. Here's the result: http://imgur.com/qB9IOwY EDIT: Image wasn't em...

Betcha a big-ass wave rolls in and messes everything up in like 5 newpix and then Megan shows up and is like "so what's up?" Cueball responds "Oh not much." and they walk off... The end.

Re: 1194: "Stratigraphic Record"

I'm not 100% sure on this, but 99% sure that liquid water didn't exist on Earth 4.5B years ago. At that point Earth was still cooling down from all the impacts (including possibly the one that created the moon if you're into that theory *fits with comic mischief*). The internal temperature of the Ea...
