are you sure it's mepls? looks like the A and the L just overlap a bit... 98.201.111.246 17:59, 3 February 2013 (UTC)mr

By the way, the e-number of monosodium glutamate is e621. Y'know, like the Furry site? Good one, Randall. --162.158.62.75 00:25, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

The title text seems to be a reference to "dazed and confused," which must mean something more significant than most simple conjunctions. I'll figure it out at some point. --Quicksilver (talk) 02:48, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Also, I believe the laptop (notice how he holds it by the top of the screen) may be a reference to comic 925's (Cell Phones) title text "He (Black hat guy) holds the laptop like that on purpose, to make you cringe"...this is an unlikely reference though. - androidtribbles 173.245.54.50 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

He's not holding it by the screen, it's being held by the keyboard right at the trackpad. It's still really cringe-inducing, but not quite as... fragile. 108.162.216.76 08:49, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

It could also be a rugged laptop, those are a lot tougher and have a handle on them right below the keyboard; it could be the rectangle is not a trackpad, but the hole for the handle. While it's still not advisable to carry the laptop with the screen open like that, it's not nearly as cringe-worthy as the case and monitor hinges are made of thick metal. 108.162.219.9 17:12, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Made an edit to the explanation. It seemed no one picked up on the possible meaning of the title text... But it could just as easily have been Randall's typical pedanticism... 173.245.56.204 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Dazed and Confused is also a song by Led Zeppelin. We know Randall listens to Zeppelin from comic 339: classic. By the way, the glasses also seem to contain very weird liquids...162.158.91.246 07:38, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Weird liquids indeed! From left to right, I think they are: a lump of coal, a pair of lovebirds (very small ones) and a superfluid, probably liquid helium, doing its fountain thing. 108.162.218.83 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
