Re: 1190: "Time"

I think there is a point to this. The whole story of Time shows us the nature of the relationship of Cueball and Megan over time. I think the nature of that relationship has been hinted at in the past in various comics. I think if one were to go through the whole history of xkcd and find all the co...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Randal could draw one of these perhaps every 5 seconds - if he spent 12 hours total doing so, this would go on for 6 months. OTOH, the comic is simple enough that the placement of heads, arms, and legs could be algorithmically generated. In which case, there could be an huge number of computer gene...

Gosh, you all bloody love 103 don't you? Well, I have something to tell you!! Just because it contains the most 'action' does NOT make it the best frame.
