This link, note 1, may help whomever is going to be editing the comic explanation, I don't have time this morning. [1] Seebert (talk) 13:40, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Did a quick google and copy/pasted from the Wikipedia page on Moiré patterns. Xseo (talk) 13:51, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

I can't be the only one for whom the note emoji are not showing up.

I don't see them either. I'm running Chrome 48 Portable. 14:18, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Running Chrome 57, Chromium 53, and Firefox 52; the note emoji doesn't work on any of these (Linux Mint 17.3 64-bit). I wonder why? Cosmogoblin (talk) 15:19, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Works for me, Firefox 52. Bring up the menu bar (Alt or F10), "View > Text Encoding > Unicode". If you still don't see the notes, it may be an issue with the font settings. You could try to fiddle with "Tools > Options > Content > Default Font". Instead of using the menu, you can bring up "Options" by entering "about:preferences" in the address bar. If that doesn't work, you need professional help. ;) 06:23, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Chrome 56 for Android, they display for me. Mikemk (talk) 10:24, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

AFAIK moiree patterns would not show up on an image that have been *properly* sampled, such moiree patterns are IIRC a byproduct of poorly sampled digital images. See WP for "aliasing" and "digital sampling" for reference. My two cents... Todor (talk) 14:31, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Good Lord. 24 hours! If any of you guys are actual engineers you should be ashamed of yourselves! I am not an engineer, but I do know a a tiny bit about signal theory, hence the tip. But then again this just shows how cheap shit chinese gizmos proliferate. Quality just cost too much, haha! Just need the looks, not the brainz! Only the zombies loves them BRAINZZZZZ! hurr hurr.

What are you trying to say with 24 hours. At this moment the comic has been up for 6 hours... If you think the explanation could be improved this is luckily a wiki, so you could just improve instead of rant ;-) --Kynde (talk) 19:55, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

The Dean Martin version, which likely is the only version anyone younger than I has heard goes like this- When the moon hits your eye - like a bigga pizza pie - That's amore - - When the world seems to shine - like you've had too much wine - That's amore ExternalMonolog (talk) 04:25, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

At first I thought Russell was alluding to Tom Lehrer's "That's Mathematics". :D 06:23, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

"Amore" is pronounces as /aˈmɔːrɛ/ in Italian. The initial vowel is a clean open "a" and there's no final "ei" but rather a clean open "e". Source: (Not counting I am Italian myself!)

Sorry, I can't help myself, but... If it's swimming in the sea and it's long and slippery, that's a moray 07:54, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

When it's sometimes quite slow but on average it goes, that's amor...tized
If your alphabet soup is tied up like a sloop, that's a mored A

If a diet's your wish, but you can't avoid the dish, that's a moreish 12:10, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Does anybody else think that the title text may just as well refer to "amore" as to "a moire"?
