Re: 1190: "Time"

Been too long since I've been able to get to an actual computer (by which I mean, you guys post like the proverbial million monkeys!) Wall-o-text incoming... Maybe this new image will quell the religious talk for a while? I'm hoping so. I've started missing the hopeful speculation. Also, damn the fa...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Eh, let's stick to creating a civilization and overrunning what little might be left of the Outside. A religion seems a bit OTT.

EDIT: we also need to finish making xkcd entirely self-referential and self-aware. We're close but I don't think we're there quite yet...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Hold on. Is it "less than x newpix" or "fewer than x newpix"? "Fewer" is traditionally used for countable items and "less than" for uncountable items, but the plural "newpix" is not necessarily countable. Or is it? Perhaps I am yet unenlightened. Ti...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Say, for example, that someone might create a Wikipedia article for our new unit of time. Should the title be "newpic"? Or should it be "newpix"? Should there first be some sort of vote held to determine the accepted forms, for singular and plural? Common usage seems to dictate ...

Soon we'll need a wiki :shock:

Or we could take over borrow Wikipedia's Time page.

Re: 1190: "Time"

The frame definitely just shifted slightly to the left! (So the castle appeared to shift slightly to the right.) I WAITED A HALF HOUR FOR ONE DARKENING PIXEL. I want this on a t-shirt underneath the image of the sandcastle. dl(dot)dropbox(dot)com/u/84764842/tshirt-castle-pixel.jpg 503 error. :/ But...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'd rather not have that happen for our own sanity's sake. That ship ship sailed 140 newp-- er, three days ago. Days? What are those? From your 140 newp(ix, I'm assuming) comment, I'll assume that one day is... 46 2/3 newpix. What an impractical unit of measurement. Why would you use days ? I think...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Just like so many others, longtime reader (probably almost 2 years now) but first-time poster here. Well played, Randall, this probably sets some kind of record for most long-time visitors hauled out of lurking in a single day. I don't think there's any personal message being told here, just a conte...
