Countdown

Post by ratammer »

There's currently a countdown at the top of the site, and a line has started to appear, Time-style, in the corner of the image it's using as a background. Someone has set up a page that automatically adds the new image whenever it updates: https://munvoseli.github.io/xkcd-countdown/

Now that a curve and a second bit of line has appeared, I'm gonna go wildly speculate, that it's the vertical stabiliser of an aircraft.

I figured that was what the "Rosetta" thread was. Longpix make for a much more relaxed waiting experience.

It's turning into a plane. No idea where or why yet though. I wonder if the GLR is going on holiday soon?

Now there's some kind of tentacle reaching out?

I wonder if it's a cat.
If I disappear from the forum, I can still be reached via the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Now there is a wingtip visible, and the tentacle/tail/scarf up above.

That's a T-Rex eating the top of a plane. I have no idea why...

Isn't Randal afraid of raptors? Shouldn't any normal person be afraid of them? So I guess tomorrow he is going to where ever the Jurassic park stories are set.

I... guess this thread is in the wrong section now! :P

I enjoyed the first book - I'll probably get this one.

Went ahead and pre-ordered. Why not? First one was great.
