Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm hopeful that at some point the "history" section of this article can be filled in with more comic history like how Randall started it, changes to the days it was posted, changes to the xkcd website etc, notable recognition and events; and that the stuff that is already under "history" can be moved to a subsection on the history of the style of xkcd.

Unless there's an objection, under "Meaning of xkcd" I'd like to rephrase the reference to The Hithhiker's Guide to the Galaxy so it refers to the novel/radio play primarily, and not the movie version. Those are the versions that became legendary in the science fiction community and established the fanbase for the franchise (including the reverence for the number 42), and Randall was almost certainly familiar with them before the movie. I would of course maintain the mention of the movie and its release date, since that's a cool piece of related trivia. - jerodast (talk) 23:34, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
