This is a great lesson for me that no matter what we think is occurring, it's probably wrong; that statistics themselves are unsustainable; and that only goals that matter need to be sustainable in the long term. - e-inspired 98.211.199.84 15:15, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, WAY too heavy, but I was just trying to inspire other engineers, perhaps people smarter then I, to try solving the world problems (You will probably do better job then law makers). Hope to read your theory in the book some day. - E-inspired (talk) 08:33, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Ironically, this comic does nothing to help the situation at hand. 108.162.215.60 02:12, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

What happened in 1966-67, when there was that peak in the use of the word?--108.162.229.57 10:59, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

0.5% is "once per sentence"? Didn't know most sentences had 200 words. 108.162.218.77 01:06, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

I have a very strong urge to replace every word on this page with "sustainable". Was there ever a joke page on explainxkcd? Fabian42 (talk) 11:45, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

This would kill the explanation and in general the jokes are done by Randall while we explain them. Nevertheless humor is always welcome, but remember this Wiki is called "explainxkcd" not "jokingxkcd". So the better place for your strong urge would be here at the discussion page. --Dgbrt (talk) 17:56, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
(Translated into English from Sustainable) The year is 2140, and “society” has been decimated. Language has transcended time and space, and how sustainable everything is is getting unsustainable. “That Guy from the Netherlands” (talk) 14:21, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

If someone made what was above into a real thing as a better writer, I would buy it on the spot. “That Guy from the Netherlands” (talk) 14:21, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

According to Randalls very own https://xkcd.com/simplewriter/ sustainable is not a simple (common) word yet... --Lupo (talk) 06:38, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
