Re: 1190: "Time"

Back after another long day of monotonous outside to find that there has been a vast amount of exposition since I last read the OTC. We know there are other people now, as well as trees and stuff. Also this just occurred to me: they want the sea to stop rising so their sand castle will be safe. I do...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm so worried that no matter how great the ending is, assuming there ever is an ending, it can't possibly live up, or feel satisfying, after we've waited over a month now for it and counting. How could it possibly? Won't it be a huge letdown no matter what? Unless it keeps going forever, I guess, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I just felt that it had to be suggested regardless, as the 'Time is ending!' prophecies of doom have not always made sense anyway. That is certainly the understatement of the newpix... comics gonna end at frame 1190, calling it right now (I doubt it though, that's far too soon and nothing is resolv...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Happened to notice that Flickr's blog for the day is about carving sand. Had to share.... http://blog.flickr.net/en/2013/05/04/extraordinary-sand-sculptures/ Oooh, thanks for sharing! Nice to be taken straight to an incredible HR Giger sand-guy upon clicking. Made my morning. :D Also: I notice the ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm back after another day or so of outside time. can someone please explain to me this line: (frame 1095) "It's not much farther from home than ours at its driest." very cryptic indeed. for whatever reason, as soon as I saw this line my first reaction was that the whole thing was a metaph...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I see some folks here speak arrogantly when mentioning the Outer Threads. I must warn you that the forum thread for xkcd #2300, the first 11-dimentional comic, got 3.14k replies in the first two days. True, but most of those replies were very small and tightly curled up. Maybe that's what's wrong w...

Re: 1190: "Time"

After more than 20k posts, one could think we could be closer to understanding what is really going on in this comic (best way to guess at what it is we are waiting for). As far as I've seen by lurking around here, there are lots of scattered theories which are not always diverging. Bli...

Time, Mr Freeman?

Hello. I am known as Erg in the small pockets of the internet which I frequent. When I first became aware of The One True Comic, I was alone. A stranger in a strange land. I was awash with wonder at XKCD #1190, the comic that kept on giving. with some effort and research, I found this humble cult co...
