### Re: 2101: Technical Analysis

That alt-text is the crotchetiest thing I've read on this website, and sounds a lot like the kind of 'the state of x nowadays' grumbling that Randall normally takes issue with.

### Re: 2070: "Trig Identities"

I think the idea there is that rather than writing, say f(f(f(f(f(f()))))) you can just write f 6 () - and that notation then extends to f -1 () being the inverse of f() Doesn't that imply that cos²t should mean cos(cos t)? It absolutely should! Trying to explain to students why sin -1 (x) =/= csc(...

### Re: 2022: "Sports Champions"

Any more real ones?

Alan Ball - world cup winner with England football/soccer team

I can also think of the cricketer Jake Ball, but you'd probably have to be his mum to call him a champion at the time of writing.

### Re: 1994: "Repairs"

'Randall tries to fix things and makes it worse' is an ongoing joke isn't it?

Strips 349, 1171, 1739, and 1780.

I reckon this one is self-referential.

### Re: 1829: "Geochronology"

I thought I could tell whether an era is real or not, but this comic proved me wrong. The "Upper Pomeranian" era sounds legit to me.. The fun part of this is that there is a (linguistic) connection. The names in the comic (and most of the comments) are derived from place names. Dalmatia i...

### Re: Escape from Raptors

You float endlessly through the nothing of the destroyed spacetime continuum. You think of the world you left behind, and are filled will regret. The things you will never see, touch or hear because you destroyed it all, you destroyed it for even the slightest chance of any other life. You have beco...

### Re: 1202: "Girls and Boys"

Girls who are boys who do boys like they're girls... Why Jupiter specifically? Because it's bigger and therefore better. Jupiter was my favourite planet when I decided I was going to go there, back in the day. I planned to go right after I'd collected all the power rangers to help out. Of course for...
