Forgot about that, fixed.

Also while I was converting to .gif I decided to add in a frame where it does go nova. It's not for very long though, so you'll miss it unless you're really looking hard.

My first and second thoughts while reading today's comic (https://xkcd.com/1334/):
Spoiler:
second_quest.png
Of course, once I finish that, I'll just have to give the item to someone else, and then someone else...
second_area.png
Let me look beyond the rock... nope, just a level I can't get to yet and an insurmountable waist-high fence.

I got bored, and Diogenes inspired.

Plot Source:
Spoiler:
"When Plato gave Socrates' definition of man as "featherless bipeds" and was much praised for the definition, Diogenes plucked a chicken and brought it into Plato's Academy, saying, "Behold! I've brought you a man." After this incident, "with broad flat nails" was added to Plato's definition".

I love the idea that he went to all the trouble to completely pluck a chicken just to win an argument and be instantly refuted :P Ancient Greeks were great!

who was instantly refuted? showing up with the chicken demonstrated the sillyness, or necessary incompleteness of the definition.
