I think everyone is just too focused on Time to worry about The Past. And i think Randall planned that perfectly to just send us another message. Some serious zen going on here now.
Whoa, man, whoa.
That...you just totally blew my mind right there.
The internet doesn't convey sarcasm well, but I'm going to say that was sincere so, thanks
This is my favorite thing about XKCD, how easily Randall can toy with us yet enlighten us so. Despite the sheer amount of time that everyone here has been wasting on this, I'm going to guess a whole lot have so much more appreciation for it now. And I'm going to guess that was the master plan. Time is important but it can be well wasted. We have lots of it too. (clearly)
For me just seeing that first panel was immensely powerful. That they were just sitting there and letting time pass was a wonderful thing. But now its just so much more than i thought it would be (and its still going!) and its all because of everyone else out there watching and waiting.
I wasn't being sarcastic, sorry if it seemed that way! I'll admit, I've been lacking sleep the past few days over this comic, but you just made me sit for a few minutes and think hard about life.
Nono don't worry I didn't think you were being sarcastic. It was just that tiny doubtful voice in the back of my head being silly. I know how you feel about missing sleep, this has been absorbing my life up heaps and heaps. Just more time to contemplate really And thank you for your kind words! Good to know I'm not rambling to empty space.
Also I see that the hashers are back! keep up the hashing talk! its very interesting for someone with no knowledge of it.
Can i get a *bump*? You will gets an internet
