Re: 2530: "Clinical Trials"

Unfortunately, there is nothing about any conditional relationships between the steps. So it could as well go like this: Come up with new idea: Ok, I did some quick thinking and I just got my best idea ever! GOTO next step. Convince people it's good: Ok, I tried. Some are convinced.

Re: General meta thread

Wait, so if I shared a link with the sid still in it, someone could end up logged in as me? (I haven't, but just checking.) Looks like the SID alone is not enough.

This place: what it is? What it wants to be?

Hello. I'm balthasar_s. Some might recognise me from the 'time' thread. Interesting that a 'NEW' xkcd forum appeared. I guess that enough people missed a place like this. I'm curious, I'm wondering, I would like to know. What is the 'goal' of this new forum? What is it supposed to be? Will it be 'TH...
