Re: 1321: "Cold"

The argument is to climatology (and maths) as "if man came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" is to biology. Humans didn't come from monkeys . Humans are apes . I'm not sure it's good practice to correct someone's example of something that is wrong. I'm lost in the logic of wheth...

Re: 1321: "Cold"

I am disappointed. I live in St. Louis. I thought for sure that Randall had set the code so that everyone had their own location used as the example in the comic, but it seems from reading the forum that everyone got St. Louis. Is that right?

Re: 1308: "Christmas Lights"

Tree lights are red and green. Star on top is probably white. Fire is reddish.

What's the peak in the infrared in the fire? Is it a wood or gas fire?

Re: 0421: "Making Hash Browns"

After 5 years, I can no longer keep silent.

The orange juice / oil thingie on the tray is in fact a cardboard french fry holder, like what you'd get at McD's.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Where's all the sand coming from? I'd have expected a depression somewhere in the frame as the castle went up. Instead, R seems to be intentionally violating the law of Conservation of Sand. We're viewing a 2D cross section of a 3D scene. Presumably the sand is coming from a pit behind the sandcast...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Seems like it cannot go on past midnight tonight, right? Unless it is a multi-part comic.

On another note - Where's all the sand coming from? I'd have expected a depression somewhere in the frame as the castle went up. Instead, R seems to be intentionally violating the law of Conservation of Sand.

Email iff registration: feature or bug?

Dear administrators, etc Surely you know this already, but -- it appears to be impossible to email a forum administrator without already being registered. Arguably, anyone who wants to email an administrator should be registered. But if there is trouble registering -- catch 22! Is this a feature or ...
