We have a lot of information about the trajectory there, can someone predict where it will hit?

Quite right. But should passing intervals be measured in plots (or plotlets)? soon we'll be discussing dekaplots and kiloplots.

It looks like it will hit close to Cueball.

I'm not sure what happens when a mini-trebuchet misfires, but I'm betting it involves missing fingers.

Definitely becoming more & more of a solid metaphor for the building/repairing/destruction of a relationship. Cueball seems to be doing a lot of work to keep the "castle" together.

I did in fact say "who uses a trebuchet for such a small projectile?" - well we now know it's someone who has a small trebuchet. I'm just glad Megan is back. Quick Cueball! Tackle her before she launches another volley!

It looks like she moved the trebuchet a metre right, so I expect the ball will hit a metre right of the previous one.

Arc is higher which means steeper trajectory. She's aiming for Cueball, me thinks.

Wow. Sure missed a tone while I was gone.

Also, I am glad to see I'm not the only one who seriously doubts Randall would change the course of it all based on this board. I mean, this is fun and all, but he clearly planned this out in advance. The presence of a trebuchet should not mean he's listening to it, since most of the fans here who suggested a trebuchet before it appeared probably found their appreciation and passion for trebuchets from other earlier xkcd comics to begin with. He liked the idea long before a bunch of people he's never met and who he DEFINITELY doesn't live for the approval or acceptance of brought it up in connection with this comic. Similarly, if we end up seeing raptors, that shouldn't be cited as evidence that he's "obeying the forum requests" or any such nonsense. Randall is the reason why most of you guys like raptors to begin with (well, Randall and Jurassic Park...), and so if they show up, or the eternity bird, or the Waterman map, it will be because Randall liked them first and planned them into things, not because we have any measure of control over the experience.

The discussion board here is amusing, but it is a corollary to the experience, not the experience itself.
