Hello there! I'm 18 years old from Israel. I'm pretty much the poster boy for xkcd's target audience so many of my friends like xkcd and I used to visit it from time to time, sometimes using the random button. I liked a lot of the comics but there were also many I didn't understand - sometimes because of pop culture (esp. US specific things and people), sometimes because of science concepts I didn't quite know. So I always knew xkcd existed and that it was good but I wasn't fully a fan.

Some time ago I discovered the "what if?" section. I loved it! The concept and execution are both awesome. I read all of the articles from start to finish and especially liked the "new takes" to common questions like Sunless Earth and Everybody Jump. Then I tried to read the main site in the same way - start to finish. But most of the early comics weren't very interesting to me so I gave it up and the site returned to the same state of "I know it's good but I don't visit it much" state in my mind.

And then, very recently, I discovered "Time". I discovered it by reading the wikipedia article on xkcd. In the history section there were some notes about the more "unique" kinds of comics in xkcd - the two april fools ones, Click an Drag, and Time. I knew about Click and Drag (although I never fully explored it) but the other ones were knew to me. And the concept of Time especially intrigued me. And then I realized it had it's own Wikipedia page - the only xkcd comic with that honor. And it's own Wikia project. And the largest thread in the xkcd forums (didn't even know xkcd had forums before that...). Wanting to see what all the fuss was about, I went to the youtube video that was made after its end. And it was great. A great story, comparable to many works of science fiction - with romance, philosophy, a great climax and an underlying scientific background that also taught me something interesting about the sea next to my country. I can hardly imagine how it must have been to experience it all the slow way, with all the exploration and speculation.

That made me realize xkcd is more than just funny comics. And it inspired me to go on a quest, to finally read everything, from start to end. Now I also knew about explainxkcd wiki (found it before I found Time) so I could clarify all comics I don't understand. I had time to to this because I'm in the "limbo" period of an Israeli life - after school, before the mandatory military service. It was great, and now that it's over I feel the right to call myself an xkcd fan.

One thing I found especially notable while going through the comics was when I reached Umwelt. From Wikipedia I already knew it was unique, so after checking all my browsers (got the common ones - Snake and Black hat/Turtle) I went to explainxkcd to find out about the rest. I was shocked to find so many comics. So I read them and scrolled down. And then I found the hebrew one. I was especially surprized because 1. I don't think there is anything in xkcd that is not in english, aside from one cherokee sentence in #84 and the Time fictional language, 2. It was about the subject of Jewish Assimilation, or marriage between Jews and non Jews, an important subject in Israeli life and politics that is not very well known outside it, and 3. It made sense the comic would be visible in Israel but I didn't see it.

As the explaination itself gave no further info (This comic has quite a crappy explaination, I plan to fix it soon) I almost thought it was a hoax and some Israeli put the comic there. But after finding some old reddit threads listing all the comics and having some of my friends tell me they saw the comic I realized it is real. I know it's irrational, but I almost feel flattered for knowing my language is the only one other than English to feature in an xkcd comic :oops: . I wonder how did Randall write it. He probably got some guy to do it for him - I'd be surprized if Randall knows Hebrew and the sentences are much better than what most translation software can manage. And I wonder if the joke was created by Randall or by the guy he got to write - as I said it's an issue more well known in Israel so it makes sense an Israeli wrote it.

Anyways, now I got into the society of always wondering what will our crazy Randy come up with next (Ooo are we a secret society? Do we also secretly control the united states government?) I'm sure it'll be fun :D

Another innocent victim drawn into the forum by the notorious Time thread ;) . Welcome and enjoy yourself!

Actually I'd say it's reasonably well known outside of Israel that Israel does not have secular / state marriage but only religious marriage, thus couples consisting of one Jew and one non-Jew need to go to another country, get married there and have it recognized in Israel. I'd say together with the lack of a possibility to opt out of military service (except for those who are exempt anyway: Arabs and Orthodox Jews) these are the best known social issues, I think. (Well apart from the whole Palestine thing, of course.) Or is this not the issue you are referring to, after all?

Yeah, the secular/state marriage is the biggest legal issue, but it's also a big cultural thing especially with religious and nationalist families. That's why the daughter in the comic feels the need to tell her mom the guy she met isn't Jewish. And well, I guess I underestimated how much people outside Israel know about Israel. In the internet it seems like all people talk about is the "Palestine thing" and even for that they usually don't really know the whole story, concentrating on just one side. I guess it's also related to how educated you are in those matters, and Randall is probably educated enough.

Do you like white-chocolate-chip cookies, white chocolate-chip cookies, white-chocolate chip-cookies, or white chocolate chip-cookies?

Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not, or that you feel good this morning, or that it is a morning to be good on?

Well I guess this is me taking the plunge on another message board. I've previously been active on some D&D boards (enworld.org in particular though that was many moons ago) and generally I find that they quickly become overwhelming. But after lurking on and off (particularly, as with some many others when "Time" was ongoing) I figured, in a triumph of hope over experience that I would take the plunge again.

Perhaps this time I'll be able find a happy medium where I post enough to feel engaged and involved without trying to post enough that I "keep up with the Joneses".

As far as personal details. I'm Male. I'm on the old side of things (43 in a few days). I'd get into my religion and politics, but if I understand the rules correctly I still have to get this post approved… :wink:

They're not unmentionable. Proof: it means the genitals. QED.

And I'm glad mine aren't readily soluble. Not in liquids I often touch, anyhow.

Hello :) I have been a long time lover of xkcd, and finally joined he fora. Fun stuff! Anyway, I'm very laid back and easy going. I'm writing this when I should be studying for my Calc 2 test. But meh, I've still got time. Anyway, I'm gonna graduate from High School this May and head off to college to study Computer Science :D
I really enjoy infinite series, 2^(n+1) numbers, and Minecraft. I'm currently adamantly not studying improper integrals.

Also, Prime Numbers! They're really cool. There's a lot of them. My favorite map projection is the Robinson Projection.
