2000 isn't really important. We're still 48 comics away from a relevant comic number.

Re: 1214: "Geoguessr"

Hah. I just got one with right-hand traffic and Spanish signage that included a navigational road sign with kilometer distances to three locations. One was "Rio Grande." Another was "Porto Algere," but that wasn't quite legible in the first image, and in the closer image, "...

Re: Size-based intensity for written laughs

Yes, but how would you do that in English? Extending only the "haha" laugh doesn't give you a lot of options. There are different representations because there are actually different ways of laughing, with different sounds, and different ways to express those sounds. In Brazil, there is a ...

Size-based intensity for written laughs

Re: 1168: Tar

Excuse me.  But one has ten seconds to enter a valid command.  If one does not enter **anything**, said timer remains at 10 seconds, right? Sometimes the only winning move is to not play. Umm... I think it's pretty obvious that the time IS counting down. And hey, the post title is actually complete...

Re: 1168: Tar

I think that, in the topic title, the T should not be capitalised, since the comic name is "tar", not "Tar". Or has it been defined in the XKCD Forums Style Guide that topic titles should always capitalise the first word? In that case, does Randall's creative choice of naming the...
