I do the last panel ALL THE FRIGGIN' TIME. Alpha (talk) 20:07, 8 March 2013 (UTC) Graham's Number has not had that title for several years now.... See here: http://googology.wikia.com/wiki/Graham's_number XKCD also means getting addicted to webcomics because they are too funny

                                                                           -108.162.237.175 21:57, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

A question, what is meant with "(In fact, A(g64, g64) is less than g65)"? Is g65 more than g64? Is it much more? Is A(g64, g64 "insanely large" compared to what you would expect or not? Maplestrip (talk) 13:05, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

It means that mathematicians who read XKCD are not horrified by the idea, but calmly compute the result. (g65 is obviously more than g64 ; both Graham's number and Ackermann functions are methods to make ludicrously high numbers, and the "only slightly more" means that they growing in roughly same ludicrous speed) -- Hkmaly (talk) 02:04, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

You know, if everyone did the traffic thing at intersections, it would basically be the same as a roundabout. --162.158.102.150 16:19, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Apparently (page 28) some intersections where I live are designed for the maneuver in panel 1.--Troy0 (talk) 17:30, 29 July 2016 (UTC)


Yo mama ≡ 1 modulo A(g64, g64) unsigned int (talk) 22:13, 22 March 2017 (UTC)


I ran into a situation yesterday where the first panel saved me five minutes in traffic. The road I was driving on had two lanes on each side. The left lane was backed up a quarter mile and the right lane was empty, as across the next road, construction trucks blocked the right lane. I drove all the way down the right lane, took a right turn, and then proceeded to execute the maneuver depicted in the comic. Half a dozen other cars caught on and followed. 173.245.52.169 21:16, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
