Re: Words you think English should have or bring back.

Is there an adjective form of the noun 'integrity'? "He/she has a lot of integrity" is rather long. My suggestion would be 'integrent', or something similar.

How does this work?

Re: Happy New Year to all XKCD people

4. Write more often (not just winning NaNoWriMo again, but writing other things besides NaNos). Hello, fellow NaNoer! -waves- Mine: 1. Broaden my musical horizons. 2. Stop procrastinating. 3. Win NaNoWriMo (shame) and write more in general. 4. Make earrings out of the pair of Furby eyes I have floa...

I've taken multiple tests (though not the official one, I guess) and gotten the same thing. The description fits me perfectly- especially the bit about loving argument and debate.

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

I hope so. My friends are smart people and I love them, but they get a bit disgruntled when I want to figure out if the science of the new Sherlock Holmes movie was actually plausible and such things. Do you ever watch Mythbusters? Dear lord, I love MythBusters. The Thanksgiving marathon was the th...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

I'm hoping that the xkcd fora will be helpful in fueling my love of good intelligent conversation, because it's hard to come by when most of your peers are content with doing stupid things to look cool. I think you shall be helped here :D[/quote] I hope so. My friends are smart people and I love th...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hello! I am Clair (as the username would indicate), and am aware that my name is not the typical spelling. What can I say, my parents did not believe in unnecessary vowels. I live in California and am still slogging through high school. It's not so bad, but I am looking forward to higher education. ...

Does it? I've always heard/read it where it refers to something being almost destroyed.


As have I. As in a ransacked room had been "all but turned upside down."

I got introduced to xkcd at the same time I was taking Biology from an amazing teacher. I've always liked science, but more with a passing "Science. Cool." attitude. I'd say the combination of the two has definitely furthered my knowledge and appreciation, because somewhere along the line ...

Re: Handwriting

I have always despised my handwriting, both printing and cursive. I tried to change it at one point, because I hated it so much, and now I've retained some of the 'new' font and gone back into my old one, and it looks even worse. I use cursive most of the time because it's a bit better, but looks li...
