Re: 1199: "Silence"

This is one of the things I really love about xkcd. Once in a while, you come across a comic that seems to be intended exactly for someone with your knowledge and interests. The recent geology ones went right over my head, but this comic is right up my street. It feels like Randall knows something a...

And it's only going to get stranger; the madness is set to continue till Monday or so.

Plus Megan's back, and I reckon her aim's better than Cueball's.

Mission End Date - 2nd. Ish. Probably.

Probably, you say. That sounds ominous :3

Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

Sleep deprivation combined with the decline of the English wordy-writey-meaning-conveying-wibbly-wobbly stuff in this forum be taking its toll, and so I reckon now may-did be a good Things that are on my side for 600, Alex! to bow out and get on with the rest of my life (for a day or two at least)‽...

This whole thread seems to have something of Douglas Adams about it. With just a pinch of Terry Pratchett for seasoning, perhaps.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Has anyone else noticed that we can't write I-S or A-M now? I initially thought it was someone using bad grammar intentionally, but there you go. Perhaps we are all going mad.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Has any noticed that the alt text is also changing? The words are the same, but I could swear that the text is a little darker than it used to be. I am also seeing these strange orbs floating before my eyes. I didn't think that was possible in HTML5? I'm getting the same thing, except now blood is ...

I would like this at the end http://sciencefictionruminations.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/statue_planet.jpeg just because I posted it first which would make an apostle or something. A prophet, perhaps? I don't know if it would make you more popular, mind... On an unrelated note, the slowing post ra...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I've had a look back at the songs and didn't spot this one, although it's quite possible that I missed it. May I humbly suggest a hymn for the religion: Give that old Time religion Give me that old Time religion Give me that old Time religion And it's good enough for me. If this is going to be one ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Having just eaten a doughnut (I don't have a cardiologist, hah), I didn't think this thread could possibly make me hungry. Just shows that one shouldn't underestimate the sort of people who create a whole new religion and plan a new civilisation in the space of ~150 newpix.

Re: 1175:"Moving Sidewalks"

Is it me, or would this be an example of simple harmonic motion? (Or rather, would it be simple harmonic if the conveyor belt were to reverse direction as the person reached the end?) At the moment, maths preoccupies me to the extent that this was the first thing I wondered when I read the comic...

Re: 1156: "Conditioning"

The birds, squirrels, etc. will hear the thumping bass from the vehicles .... and will go to the box, where they have been conditioned into getting the food. The cars will drive by unmolested. They might not be directly molested in the way originally intended, but I'd imagine the car might suffer a...
