Re: What-If 0120: "Alternate Universe What Ifs"

Are we about to find out "What If Randall missed a week of What Ifs without warning?" I'm not complaining (since I know neither George R. R. Martin nor Randall are our bitch ) but the notice at the top of the What If page suggests the plan was to skip the week of U.S. Thanksgiving and come...

Re: What-If 0120: "Alternate Universe What Ifs"

"But the survival time is usually just a little bit more than the head-start time, so couldn't both timers start at the same time and the harvester just always takes a moment to catch up to the human no matter how far their head start?" "Then how are some survival times less than the...

Re: 1433: "Lightsaber"

Alternately, Luke could have made a one-use lightsaber where the blade extends from the opposite end, not the one where the blade would extend in a regular lightsaber. "Oh, sorry Dad, was that your leg? Serves you right for CUTTING OFF MY HAND!"

Re: 1330: "Kola Borehole"

Nah. Make use of the place. Water down, steam up, electricity out. It would make wonderful PR and allow you to charge a premium. "Gehenna Generating Company: A Cool Glass of Water in Hell For Every Kilowatt You Use." If there were a tunnel feeding water into the borehold, you could set up...

Re: 1046: Skynet

Worst disguise for a Terminator ever. A Skynet T-shirt? That's got to be a giveaway. I'm just waiting for a Terminator / Dr. Who crossover, as they both seem to work on the timey-wimey ball method of time travel. Maybe once they're finished with the Doctor Who/Star Trek: the Next Generation crossov...

Re: 1017: "Backwards in Time"

Looking at the spreadsheet, particularly the section between 60 and 70 percent, made me think of "We Didn't Start The Fire" for some reason. Maybe tomorrow, when I've got some time to spend on the train, I'll come up with a formula that maps each event in that song to the percentage of the...

Re: 0849: "Complex Conjugate"

I hate complex numbers. I mean, calculus was hard enough to begin with, why the hell did they have to go and invent imaginary numbers? Were they deprived of imaginary friends as children and now want to get back at the rest of the world? Amazingly enough, calculus actually gets easier when you intr...

Who else misread the last panel as being entirely appropriate in a new, edgier version of The Dark Knight?
