Are we to assume then, that before T0 they spent so much time sitting on that knoll that they had shed enough dandruff to build this monument?


He didn't say it was all THEIR dandruff.


How structurally sound would a dandruff castle be anyway? We need data. It's time that we all got together for some real world testing.

how structurally sound would a semen castle be? (i'm not suggesting we get together for real world testing on that one)

How structurally sound would a semen-and-dandruff castle be? Sand castles typically require a solid and liquid component anyhow.

...I think I'll just go back to figuring out how Randall got this to keep playing in my room even after I unplugged my speakers and bashed them in with an iron pipe. Some of these HTML5 features feel rather unnecessary.

I refute this claim. Time is the story of the sand castle(s). Megan and Cueball are merely the exposition into the extensive but slow-paced saga of the creation and perhaps ultimate destruction of the Sand Castle.

No no no. The Sandcastle is a representation of the world built by Megan and Cueball as a result of their life together and the "building" of their relationship.

I suggest that an overarching period be established starting with frame 180, "The Rising of the Tide". There have been at least three frames since then in which the ocean has changed slightly, generally in the upward direction.

Weird thing. Between the first post-pan-&-zoom newpix and the last (164 & 192), not only has the water risen by about one pixel, but also, the beach seems to be . . . eroding? The castles haven't budged by even a fraction of a px, but the beach between the first castle and the water is lower or to the left of where it was, if lower then by about 1 px.
P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.
We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.

By the end, the entire comic will be nothing but a perfect, white rectangle on top and a perfect, black rectangle on bottom.

Not necessarily. If Time is a representation of the building of their relationship, condensed in allegorical form, then we've got...what? six years of relationship to cover?

While the ocean has moved, far more interesting things have been going on. 183 onward is currently named "Operation Connect Castle."

Perhaps a taxonomy of eons, eras, periods, epochs, and ages is in order. Or we might want to leave epochs out, to avoid confusion with that other epoch, and the Beginning of Time.

If you go to the "last month" scale, you can see that it only goes up through March 25 the Epoch. So no, it wouldn't show a spike.

Or the store link since there's a giant one immediately under the xkcd logo. Of course, this has already been mentioned in the course of over 4k posts. :D

It's kind of updating. When I refresh, I occasionally get him with a slightly higher tower, but then it reverts to the previous frame within a second.

Edit: @ darthjimmy, no, there's a frame where the tower is clearly higher.

Whoever said Time flows at a constant rate? So far it's already violated that once. At this point we should expect anything.

Sorry, you guys are right. There's a bug.

because its so hard to backtrack through time without ending up further behind in posts, i wanted to see if anyone noticed that megans castle was more fanciful than cueballs and if so i wonder what we'll see when it zooms out again and shows what she's done in the meantime.
