### Re: Python library for representing ridiculously large numbe

There's a small mistake in your program for Graham's number. The next to last line should be: g = hyperop(g+2)(3,3) And, of-course, the starting value for g should be 4 and not 6 (since you're adding 2 in the next-to-last-line).

### Python library for representing ridiculously large numbers

Hi xkcd! I made a python module to explore and play around with hyperoperators. They aren't terribly useful in practice (with the rare exception of a few combinatoric and CS bounds) but it was a fun exercise to define Graham's number in terms of successors. https://github.com/thoppe/python-hyperoper...

### Re: IPA information

Since SAMPA was mentioned, it's worth looking into the ARPAbet. Again I'm unable to link yet due to low post count, but it's the first Wikipedia link. Arpabet is a phonetic transcription code developed by Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) as a part of their Speech Understanding Project (1971–...

### Anguish Languish resources?

Hello XKCD (this is my first post here so please alert me to any etiquette breaks), I'm interested in Anguish Languish. I can't link to it due to low post count, but it's the first Google hit. The basic idea is to do a loose homophonic translation of the words so that: "Moral: Under no circumst...
