Floor 960 is a temple dedicated to the worship of Vermin Supreme.

Floor 965 is very cold on one side and very hot on the other. The shock of travelling from one end of the floor to the other could kill you.

Floor 966 has 20 old men who complain that floor 966 was better when they were young, while in reality, floor 966 is constantly improving.

Floor 968 somehow contains a cricket field. All balls bowled on it in the course of the frequent cricket matches seem to gravitate toward hitting the batsmen.

Floor 974 contains IRS agents who are part of the Premium Tax Credit Adjustment Bureau, who go out and adjust the tax people owe by devaluing their property with things like arson and vandalism.


They are also responsible for the Slenderman memes (it was an accident).

Floor 979 has an exact 1:1 copy of Budapest Keleti pályaudvar neatly packaged in bubble wrap intended to replace the original one as soon as they find the Zeppelins to lift it. It is devoid of trains, but the PA occasionally announces a train arriving from Záhony and departing towards Nagykanizsa. It then pedantly lists every station the train is scheduled to stop at, which seems to go on for longer than you'd expect.
Occasionally a trolleybus pops into existence, roams through what would be Baross square if the station was already in its intended place and vanishes into thin air. Noone dared to board it yet, mostly because it never stops moving.

Floor 980 has an exact copy of every thread ever in the xkcd forums. (Even the spam ones!) They are packaged in a book where each page is one page of a thread. The book has something like 50,000 pages total.

Floor 981 has a similar-looking book, but entirely fictional in content. It is the work of just one person. It is a mystery why.

Probably flicky.


Floor 983 has the remains of a centaur, slowly being chipped apart by a faux renaissance artist.

consists entirely of the floor number rewritten and corrected a million times in a futile attempt to keep the floor numbering consistent. This was finally abandoned, when someone wrote Romanies eunt ite domums on the last clean patch of wall

Floor 990 contains the space Vehicle Assembly Building for the XKCD Space Agency. Unfortunately it's the same height as every other floor, so they haven't got very far.

Floor 991 has the Spaceplane Hangar, which fits conveniently into the building, but sticks out twenty meters on both sides. On one side, a runway held up by an anomaly is attached to it. The anomaly is the result of interaction between all those anti-gravity and artificial gravity machines in the building.
