Is What-If dead?

Postby SuperCow » Fri May 01, 2015 5:41 pm UTC

There hasn't been a post in 3 weeks, for something that is (supposed to be) posted on a 1-week interval.

No announcement... I bet it's just hibernating.

Remember when What If updated every Tuesday? Those were the days. Back when men were men and chickens were ten feet tall.

It's not dead, it's resting.

What if Randall, working on a new what-if, found out something that forced him to stop making them? He dug too deep into citations in obscure journals and unleashed... something?

I hope he at least presents us a gruesome explanation as a final What-If installation.

For an update, there has been an announcement posted on the What-If page.

It will resume mid-July.

I love the fact that the resume time is detailed to the second.

July 14th. Darn.

Perhaps now is the best time to get the What-If book if you haven't read it yet.

The given resume time exactly matches the projected time of closest approach of the New Horizons probe to Pluto.
