Re: 2014: "JWST Delays"

This was great to read right after looking at this blog post about the JWST delays: http://nasawatch.com/archives/2018/06/two-ways-of-loo.html It links to two twitter posts, the first of which might be the basis of this comic. https://twitter.com/coreyspowell/status/978713273729277953 https://twitte...

Re: 2006: "Customer Rewards"

Is there a reason this thread title is incorrect? Title from the last comic bleeding into this one, or something?

Now where are my rewards??

Re: 1663: "Garden"

These extra-big Mars-rovers, pots and stuff seem to be a bug: things don't fit together properly any more. It may be a bug, but I still don't think the bird in Megan's right hand stands a chance. A bird in the hand... http://forums.xkcd.com/download/file.php?mode=view&id=51348 Oddly enough, the...

Re: 1603: "Flashlights"

The thing that has been missed about internet thing enthusiasts is there is always at least 2 forums devoted to the thing , and people who are active on one will tell you that the people active on the other are wrong. The forum that I learned to build lights powerful enough to start fires is Budget...

Re: 1598: "Salvage"

but I've only had to do it with two things, so it's not exactly a statistically valid sample. Not only that, but you don't have anything to compare it to, which is infinitely more important than having enough samples. Indeed I think this is the biggest issue. Far too few people carry two identical ...

Wait, why? Is he the guy suggesting all these things?

This comic was posted in a blog post by Bill Gates: http://www.gatesnotes.com/Health/XKCD-Marks-the-Spot is the link in the OP.

I think Pfhorrest's issues with Bill Gates are unrelated to this comic.

Re: 1474: "Screws"

Lol, Randall does such a good job making you think he has an international view, but then you get something like this one which leaves out Robertson screws*, which are hands-down the best and most reliable type of screw head out there. They're square headed, but tapered, which leads to a very stron...

Re: 1370: "President"

I hope for the day when an internet-teen does run for president, someone drags something up, and they respond by simply shrugging it off and changing the attitude of a large portion of the country. Hey, what is reality if you don't dream it up first? That seems very nearly how it is bound to happen...

Very interesting. This should be fun to check out later, as more suggestions come in.
