Welp, that's one stocking stuffer taken care of this year.


#3

Has he addressed "What if mankind went to war against goats?"


#4

I'm just bummed he's never put up an answer to the "what if" I submitted.

I guess it means I'm not good enough at generating implausible scenarios.


#5

Fantastic news!


#6

How to say this without sounding childish and demanding...?
Where's my UK pre-order link?!
Nope didn't manage it.


#7

I kind of wondered that as well, since Randall has the UK pre-order link on his blog. Anyway, since Cory can't be bothered:

Murray you are my hero... I did search on Amazon but failed to find the page


#9

Not having done any further research the cover appears to me to be depicting a Tyrannosaurus rex about to learn a new definition of pain and suffering as it's lowered into the Sarlacc pit in the single greatest Spielberg-Lucas collaboration since Indiana Jones.

Even if I'm completely wrong about that I still want to read it.


#10

You never know -- maybe it's in the book!


#11

Anybody else reflexively tried to check the xkcd mouseover text?


#12

That promises to be the best thing of its kind since Jearl Walker's Flying Circus of Physics.


#13

Yup!

Hrmm, sadly, no Canadian pre-order link. Well, the Kindle edition, but no hardcover frowning


#14

Or too good.


#15

Ditto smiley

Buys book
Holds fingertip over first image

Stupid analog technology...doesn't even support the alt attribute.


#17

<pedantry class="sorry">It's actually the title attribute. Only IE<7 (erroneously) shows the alt attribute as a tooltip.</pedantry>


#18

Dammit. I even bothered to look it up first and thought I got it right...I knew it was one or the other buy couldn't verify it with my mobile browser.
