Re: 1961: "Interaction"

Since this thread is apparently a gathering of the sort of people who consider numbers among their friends, I'll point out that this is the last XKCD comic number that reads the same upside down as upside up until January 8, 2044. (This assumes that April 1st numbering variations tend to cancel out...

Re: 1950: "Chicken Pox and Name Statistics"

Re: 1930: "Calendar Facts"

163,800 facts in one comic! (ignoring title text) I keep getting 156,000. Where am I going wrong? 20 in node 1, 13 in node 2, 50 in node 3 and 12 in node 4. I can't figure out where we differ. 163,800 = 21*13*50*12, so I'm guessing they miscounted the first node. I make it 20 in node 1 too. Could y...

Re: Starbirds Energy Games

Sabrar, would you consider working together to complete the set? Even then it's a long-shot, but I don't think any of us have a chance alone. I can't even buy any more Birds of Paradise, and you can only buy one more... but together we could buy two! And we'd only need one more set-piece, while eac...

Height - 7 --
Centrifugal Force - 29 ++
Gut Fauna - 1

In that case, Gut Fauna was never eliminated. Unless [quote="Peaceful Whale"] meant to take it out instead of taking down Time Vulture. One of the two has not received a killing blow yet.
