He should have added a chapter on how to make html imagemaps --Lupo (talk) 12:03, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

I've done imagemaps ages ago, and Randall is much smarter than me. It's clearly a matter of priorities. -boB (talk) 14:08, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
At this point, I think it might be a running gag. 15:33, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh, most definitely. He could clearly learn it, and likely already knows how or at least the basics. -boB (talk) 19:29, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure there were previous XKCD comics where he did use an imagemap. — Kazvorpal (talk) 21:26, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Actually, every single xkcd page has an image map -- the pictures of other comics at the top of the lower section (the playpen balls and heart, the circuit diagram, Meghan spinning, etc.) is an image map. Look at the source code. <map> and <area> are image map tags. -boB (talk) 19:19, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

I wonder if he knows that there is a video of the football player Patrick Mahomes throwing a football at a drone. He did really well. Robert911 (talk) 14:18, 16 August 2019 (UTC)Robert

Found the killshot on facebook. Seebert (talk) 14:58, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Collapsed the URL. Herobrine (talk) 09:59, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

My favorite phrase from the book excerpt: "how effective the world’s best tennis player would be at fending off a robot invasion." Who needs an army when you have the Williams sisters? Barmar (talk) 17:45, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

The blag post describes an experiment in which 3 tennis serves are performed and the target is hit 1 time. These results are significant at a p > 0.05 level. -- 19:07, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

It is just one excerpt from the book. I hope he does explain it somewhere. Because even without of using maths, 3 tries for the first hit seems pretty average when someone get 1 out of 5-7. --Lupo (talk) 11:55, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

How come Serena has a white face when the rest of her body is black? For legal reasons, that's a joke.

Thanks for sharing that disclaimer, but I don't think this is a situation where you want to have to face the comedians instead of the law. 05:08, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Wait, maybe the entire xkcd cast is actually black? 09:30, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
That is, save for appearances of real-life non-black people in comics as characters, but hey, what do I know?

Roger Federer (Randall, you know that there are tennis layers outside America? That are even better.) has already done that - with higher precision it seems.

You know that video is fake, right?
