Why does the image show upside down? Erenan (talk) 12:32, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

No idea, I tried to upload a new version that shows right-side up on my computer and it is still upside down. --Jeff (talk) 12:52, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
I've corrected it now. Had to resave the file and then upload again. --Jeff (talk) 12:54, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
On xkcd.com, right clicking on the image and then opening the image in a new tab also shows the image upside down. Why? --162.158.93.41 06:30, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
I just checked-you're right. I think Randall himself drew and photocopied it, but the photocopy was upside down and he needed to use HTML rotation. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 16:09, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
Scrap that. It isn't HTML OR CSS, but I think the photocopy thing still makes sense. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 16:11, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
The image is actually upside on xkcd.com now too (at least in Firefox and Safari) 162.158.187.175 14:40, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
And in Chrome. J5155 (talk) 19:52, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
The image is actually encoded the right way up but has an EXIF orientation tag set to 3 (a.k.a. Bottom-right a.k.a. Rotate 180). However, the `<img>` tag has the `image-orientation:none` style, which tells the browser to ignore the EXIF tag. So, browsers that support the EXIF rotation tag but not the `image-orientation` CSS property will display upside-down (as well as any image viewer that supports EXIF rotation and is viewing the image outside of the webpage). 172.70.34.90 03:00, 4 July 2021 (UTC)


Could this comic refer back to 98: Fall Apart? 24.121.109.157 03:34, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

There is nothing in the text to indicate that the loved one is a 'she' (or a 'he' for that matter) 108.162.225.128 02:09, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

True, but the reason the sought after person is presumed to be a woman is because it is implied that Cueball is motivated by love and xkcd's typical depiction of romantic love is heterosexual. It is, of course, certainly possible that the person sought after is loved in a non-romantic sense, but romantic love seemed most plausible to me. This was the reason for the sentence "It is not explicitly made clear whether the loved one in question is a woman with whom he is in love, a family member, or a relation of some other kind, but presumably the loved one is either his girlfriend or wife." The use of "she" throughout the rest of the explanation was done from this perspective. That is, under the assumption that it was the most plausible explanation.

--Rbs (talk) 16:10, 19 December 2014 (UTC) For me the cave architecture is strange, and personnaly reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie: Conan. Which can make sense for Cueball and the comic in this context. --Rbs (talk) 16:10, 19 December 2014 (UTC)rbs

funny you should mention that. i tried to put in an explanation awhile back that the caves looked like one of those black-and-white afterimage things, like this one--http://img.izismile.com/img/img4/20111111/1000/mind_blowing_afterimages_optical_illusions_07.gif--except with the terminator instead of jesus, but i guess it got taken down. 173.245.56.155 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

When I saw this, I thought of caverns in Click and Drag. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 16:02, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

We should remove the rickroll from the trivia section. It doesn't add anything. 172.68.141.80 03:34, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

I think the image may be upside down sometimes on purpose. It may be nerdsniping or he intends it to be seen from the view of the person below.
