This has been solid material. The quicker art even gives a nostalgic return to the earlier stuff in the xkcd archive. Good job, Randall, at taking off just one comic to write the message about what's going on and then updating xkcd with a lot of funny stuff.

I love contemplating the problems with putting your CPU in Narnia. What happens to the input traveling to your monitor and the point where the wire crosses worlds? Will the CPU get hit by an ice queen's sled? Will your database get transmuted into a Christian allegory?

Wow. You just out-Randall'd Randall. Up to and including making me want you to get out of my head; I just read about the guy who plans to make a giant computer inside Minecraft that can run a stripped-down version of Minecraft.

The 80th little pig's house was declared a Superfund site.

Engineering constraints made the 94th little pig's house far too small to live in. Unfortunately, by the time they thought of using another isotope, the budget was exhausted.

The 53rd little pig realized his house could be a skyscraper. Unfortunately, the most appropriate architect turned out to be fictional.

That's what I wanted to point out, too :-) Awesome comics. I also liked the pigs, the breast feeders, and the giggling girls. However, "liked" might be the wrong way to describe the sensation.

The thing is, 'stront' actually means 'shit' in Dutch.

I laughed out loud at "Billy Joel Arrested for Arson." But shouldn't we be looking for his accomplice(s)?

The little pigs thing reminds me of the fact that I have elemental magic powers. Unfortunately the only element I can control is meitnerium, which has a half-life of about 8 seconds, so you know, not very useful.

Murderous Smartphones - first Transformers movie, the all spark was used by the scientists on the girl's phone - "Nokia huh, they come out really nasty"

The 80th pig built his houes out of Mercury, but the cost of supercooling it to keep it solid sent him into bankruptcy. The 87th built his house out of francium, but after 22 minutes he found he had decayed into fractions of the 86th, 85th, 84th, 83rd pigs houses, and a significant portion had transmogrified into the 82nd pig's lead house.
1298 and counting

If the first pig builds his house big enough, he won't have any heating bills.


In fact he'd be the star of the story. :oops:

Technically, they didn't start it either.

I read the integration one once and didn't get it... then I finally saw the symbol and it became my favorite of all XKCD moments. And while this isn't as good as the other integration jokes, I have to wonder:

If a teacher got sick that day, did they need to do a u-substitution?

The integration one was driving me crazy.

I got the segregation joke, I've just never heard of the Little Rock Nine, so I was trying to see if there was some kind of math joke behind 9x + C. like, 9, lol? I need more caffeine.

Okay. I truly hope that the issues Randall is dealing with resolve well, and that he and everyone he cares about are able to enjoy a healthy, happy holiday season.

I do, however, hope that he can follow a new rule once he resumes drawing strips for the site: he's not allowed to take more than 5 minutes EVER. I think there's some really brilliant, witty stuff in these comics...it reminds me much more of the earlier xkcd that I initially came to love. I really, thoroughly enjoy these.

These aren't funnier, they're just dumber. Or maybe I'm just in a pissy mood, it's hard to differentiate (probably something to do with all the integration going on) :-p.

Honestly, though, am I the only one who thought the little pigs one was terrible? At least until someone explained the Dutch, now I just think it it's bad. The Alice and the @Home ones = pretty funny, though.

I absolutely love these comics to the degree where if the comic just REMAINED like this indefinitely, little 5-minute sketches of rapid-fire comedy, I would be completely happy with them. I do hope circumstances improve for Mr. Monroe's family, but as far as I'm concerned, as long as he feels like taking it easy on the comic, he should.

Seriously, I had to register to make this comic.

It would work fine, and it did work fine.

What the character in the strip means is that it is ridiculous for someone to come up with such a mundane way to utilize Narnia, rather than be filled with wonder, want to explore it, etc.

Consider that the children returned to their previous age when returning through the wardrobe. I guess that means the signal back to the monitor would be perfectly in synch, just very much faster.

The wardrobe's Narnia exit is in an extremely dense grove of pines, close to the lamppost but not actually on the path.

SETI@Home would posit life on Mars and Venus, with whispy angels throughout the solar system, as well as extrapolating the Bible Codes. Folding@Home would result in the fruit of the Tree of Life, which cures all ailments and makes one immortal.

EDIT: Also, Aslan is not a proper allegory, but a fictional multiversal version of Jesus. Imagine if the Trinity made multiple universes, each unique. Whichever ones Sin infects, whether by fallen angel, proud ruler, or little boy accidentally bringing a witch in, the Son of God has to die as a sacrifice to save those who are willing to be saved. On Earth, Jesus; in Narnia, Aslan. This is heavily implied on the last page of Voyage of the Dawn Treader. (He would have to, to be omnibenevolent; also, multipresence is a subset of omnipresence.) It follows that Charn had a sacrificed Son of God, and Jadis was the Anti-Him of that world.
