Looks like fun. I wonder how long they could hang on for if they put it at full speed?!

Awww, you beat me to posting this comic. I couldn't get the image to show correctly.

With that speed, they traveled back in time.

I really liked this one. The juxtaposition of the involved parties' naivete in how this was supposed to work with the intelligence of said same parties, evidenced by the technical prowess to put together a high speed bed rotation device, which would have to have some reasonable power behind it to handle the torque requirements, struck me as quite humorous.

Please forgive the verbiage. I've been reading the 2011 'winners' of the Bulwer-Lytton competition.

I'm probably completely wrong, but is this the first time these characters have been shown to have any kind of romantic relationship? I guess I just tend to focus on the personalities and didn't realize that there are real relationships. How do top hat guy and black hat guy fit in? I figured that it was just them not realizing the purpose of the bed, showing naivete, like the above poster, but the alt text is pretty overt.

You're right, and it's been in a few more since then, now that I think about it. Still, though, for some reason I don't see them except as individuals. I guess this is what I get for staying up past my bedtime.

The funny thing is that this isn't even close to the highest-ranked comic title lexicographically.

Incidentally, I never interpreted the generic stick figure guy and girl as specific characters with any continuity from comic to comic; rather, I always figured they were just generic people (although I think the guy, in some respects, represents Randall himself). It doesn't much matter whether they're the same or not, and the relationship between them depends only on the needs of the comic. I think this is true for all the characters in the comic, except for a few (most notably Black Hat Guy) that have well-defined characterizations—and, of course, those representing specific people.

Their romantic relationship is well-documented above, but if you need proof of their sexual relationship, #940 leaves no room for doubt.

The only benefit I see to a rotating bed is if you get on one, you're probably getting laid. Beyond that, I don't get it. Is spinning somehow better? Perhaps it's the fun-house aspect of it? So why not mirrors placed around the bed that make you look distorted in funny ways as well? How about a clown and circus animals?

Now a floating bed on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney Land... that makes sense. :)

The first two panels kinda look like they're falling off a cliff.

After I read the guy's sentence in panel 4, I thought "He hacked into the guy's mansion and increased the velocity of the bed, haha"
Only after I read the girl's response I understood the intended meaning.

I wonder what the maximum comfortable rotations speed is on one of those things, 2rpm maybe?

My first thought was that it was going to be a play on Hex colour code, #AAAAAA being kind of middle grey, I wonder if the furniture in panel 3 is AAAAAA grey?

I'm kind of disappointed. I mean, I know XKCD reader's aren't all going to hold some higher standard, but it's actually fairly rare to get posts like this and that's why I usually feel safe reading the forums without worrying I'll get too offended. I honestly don't know the overall statistics about the weight of the average man versus the average woman, but even assuming there's an average difference, I still find the idea that there are requirements about weight relative to each other extremely problematic.

There are two interpretations of what you said that I could think of. Either it's a comment about their relative weight, or it's attempting to hold up a standard of men and women's bodies and use the relative weight to judge whether they're conforming to it or not. The latter seems ill-thought-out to me - it can't account for people of different heights, builds or races (I know most male characters in XKCD are interpreted as being some way descriptive of Randall, and therefore probably not Japanese, but still), and even ignoring those factors, the idea of deciding what the ideal body shape is and judging people for not fitting it is presumptuous and troubling.

If it's not about absolute weight, but relative, I think my biggest problem with this is that any judgement about the "right" way round for anything in a heterosexual relationship makes me view it in a wider context of expected gender roles. Often, girls are "meant" to be petite relative to their men, and that's often bundled up with a whole bunch of other stuff about expected personality traits and roles within a relationship (for example, try replacing weight with salary, physical power or scientific understanding).

Now, I know your post was probably intended as light-hearted, and you weren't looking to move a debate in that direction, so this undoubtably seems like a complete overreaction. However, given the awful messages we are bombarded with about gender and body image, I bristle at any policing of bodies or relationships, and the fact it might be unintentional doesn't actually make it harmless. I can choose to make mis-configured rotating beds with whatever weight of girl I fall for, thank you very much.

The first time I read this I misinterpreted it ENTIRELY.
I thought they were having a Dragon Ball Z style battle, because making the bed pissed them off so much.

Needless to say, FAIL.

Gear ratios, people. It's all about the gear ratios.

What I loved about this one is that I couldn't make heads or tails of the artwork in the first three panels until reading the whole strip. To me, it was funnier to look back (especially at panels 1 and 2) and say, "Oh! Now I see it!" :lol:

I'm usually not as easily offended as some of the people on this forum, but I'm going with Drachel on this one. Because a girl and a guy weigh the same, the girl is too fat or the guy is too skinny?

Wow, overreaction much? They are both just holding onto the bed-sheet. They *have* to be almost equal weight or they would both fly off in a twirly mess. And that is exactly the type of observation I would expect from XKCD forum posters. I doubt the OP was referring to anything you just brought up, just pure 'simple' mechanics.

oh nonsense. there'd be no need to mention 'too fat 'or 'too thin' if that was all it was. Just saying 'guess they're both the same weight' would do, wouldn't it? And the whole point is about the stuff that's implicit in throwaway comments.

The fact that someone thought about the mechanics of it and figured out that they must be equal weight because they're balanced is absolutely fine. So far, so geeky. My problem was that "they must be equal weight" was followed up by saying that them being the same weight was somehow wrong.

Adam H and babble: thanks - I know my post was a bit of a screed, and I'm glad someone got what I was trying to say.

Well, once you've got that penthouse overlooking Central Park West with the master bedroom on its own level w/ 360deg view, you can see why you need the bed to rotate.
