Ooo, they spent all that time building the sandcastle, but it will still be destroyed in time. How deep, man.

I've been watching this since Monday, quite curious. He's changing the picture every 30 minutes or so. Here is a link to a gif that has all of the slides (so far).

Nope nope nope... not watching comics about time and sandcastles drawn by a guy whose wife has breast cancer. Nope.

The first part of it looks like one of Craig Ferguson's Awkward Pause moments.

Yeah, Calvin & Hobbes was surprisingly insightful and humorous about world politics considering the characters and setting.

Okay. I've been resisting the XKCD fan club for some time now, because I tend to get into stuff like this. And now I'm stuck.

Thanks, Obama.

Honestly, I fail to see the appeal.  I feel it as kind of a troll, actually.

Funny how he expects his readers to have the patience to watch his strip slowly change over a couple of weeks, but he doesn't have the patience to learn a couple of made up words in a science fiction book.

I wondered what the hell that image was when I did my weekly check of XKCD. "This isn't a comic".

That was as pointless as the video of Woody Allen stammering for 45 minutes.

I (tried to) read Anathem and it had more than five made-up words per page.

He made an interesting point regarding Internet addiction.

Before you click on anything, wait four minutes.  Count to 240 before every click.

You find youself only doing actual, necessary things, instead of reading up on the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge because something linked you to something that linked you etc.

I think you missed the point.  It's not the made-up words themselves that make a book bad, it's the quality of work created by an author who feels the need to do that.   It's a correlation, not a cause.

If I do that I find the whole process so tedious I go away and do DIY, which is hair raising and scary and as such interesting.

Off to hit the wall with a crowbar now so I can do tiling...

You mean like how the internet was in the dialup era? Nice try.

I wish the "xkcd sucks" blog wasn't on a week delay.  I want to complain about Randall's swings between laziness and manic fixation in real time!

Great, now I have to read up on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge of 1940

When this is finished, will it be able to synch up with the 'Game of Thrones' theme?

Don't forget to look up...  oh hell, there can't be an XKCD thread without a hotlinked comic:

*shrug* My mom enjoys checking in on a piece of music that will have been played for 639 years when it's done. Google "As Slow As Possible" if you're not familiar. So yeah, we dig quirky, zen stuff like this.

I've been wondering if this hit Fark. Call it boring if you want to, cool. Some of us over there are so farkin' zoned that we've lost almost a week waiting for updates and babbling about the comic.

Hell, it's spawned a religion over there.
