Both the flag and the ground are black. Presumably it blends in quite nicely. Otherwise, he could've put it behind one of the structures.

No... None of the tower broke/fell/destroyed. He seems to be piling up more sand next to it.


Indeed. Furthermore, the sand he's piling next to it appear to be stair stepped. Clearly it's deliberate.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Thanks :-) Actually, I would not be surprised if Randall hasn't automated his entire xkcd operation by now. He probably has programs that scan these forums and the web for comic ideas and generates them automatically. Heck, it was probably a program that came up with the idea for this very comic AN...

Re: 1190: "Time"

IT'S SNOW!? snow is white - see #702 sand is white - see #505 I see no compelling argument one way or the other.

Re: 1190: "Time"

So here is the question, will she stay still for the duration of the camera moving? That's what I was wondering- why she hadn't moved in 2 newpix and had this become some sort of still-life. But I think in the last frame she was building up the side of that wall, and in this one she's in the same p...

Re: 1190: "Time"

But we also have a new comic... So who wants to stay up for another half an hour to see if this keeps going? pretty sure this is inevitable... Oh no, now that there is a new comic posted, _everyone_ will assume that that was the end of this one and never ever go back to that page again. (major majo...

Re: 1182:"Rembrandt Photo"

The artist is going off half-cocked… conception occurs a minimum of 30 minutes after intercourse, and typically up to five days afterwards. It can take longer. So unless Rembrandt's parents were getting it on for in the order of a week, then I'm sorry, the image does not depict "an artist's co...
