Excellent. Now we don’t have to ask Kenneth anymore.


Why did you post a flashing pain-image to the blog?

Anybody know what the “note on today’s XKCD” that’s in Randal’s RSS feed actually says? I looked at the comic yesterday before said “note” was posted… Oh, never mind, I figured out how to get it, it says

Sorry, due to the unusual nature of today’s comic, you may just have seen a static image in your feed reader, but you can check out the full comic here!

would be 10x better if it said: “a dog bites someone in the ass”

I want to know who’s the pervert who’s buying ten vibrators a minute? Also, her phone number, though I expect she’ll be too busy to answer.


I called her. She was busy, but she said she’d buzz me back later.


It’s like an intelligent version of this!

“Someone has sex in North Dakota”

Given sex usually isn’t a solitary activity, surely it ought to be blinking at half the frequencey for “a couple has sex…”

Either that, or there are a lot of people who like getting jiggy on State Boundaries.

Somehow I’m guessing they don’t keep specific track of ass bites.

In other news: A magnitude 4 earthquake (apparently) happens every 40 mins? It also seems as if the program Randall used to export these has a maximum frame duration of 655s and - surprisingly - Photoshop CC only allows a maximum of 240s.

Every time a Wikipedia edit is made, someone dies. Curse you, Jimmy Wales!


hmm, last i checked sex requires N persons, where N is an integer

So… you think for sure it’s a woman? Because I’m a guy and I own a couple…

I absolutely did not need to know that.
