Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

Has anyone read Branches on the Tree of Time? This reminded me of that story. 22:12, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Can someone add a category for The Terminator series? There is this comic along with 1046: Skynet, 104: Find You, 652: More Accurate, 1978: Congressional Testimony, 534: Genetic Algorithms, and probably others. 22:25, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Done: Category:Terminator; apart from this and your five others I found 11 more... Good call. --Kynde (talk) 15:45, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Although not explicitlt mentioned, the idea of going back in time to warn yourself to do or not do something is also reminiscent of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Barmar (talk) 01:04, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Could there be a meta-joke here with having the same cueballs in a bunch, this comic being number 2222 ? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Not enough to put it in the explanation. But now it will be mentioned here... :-) --Kynde (talk) 15:00, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Awfully similar to (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

But... they're all NAKED! Cueball doesn't have enough sets of clothes for them all. 08:29, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

I don't think any of them besides the second are actually guaranteed to be Cueball. They could be other people sent back, who cared strongly about Cueball watching the film for some reason. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 11:22, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

They are of course all Cueball that is the joke. Also the two coming together even states that they are both you... --Kynde (talk) 15:00, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

You guys are missing the whole point: does this mean I should or SHOULD NOT go see the movie? Right now I'm doing both because I'm stuck in a box with a cat and a radioactive decay trigger... -- Cellocgw (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I just want to link to the deja vu family guy episode Youtube - Brian and Stewie go Time Travelin -- 22:23, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

AS SOON as I saw this comic, I knew I had to read the comments to make sure somebody essentially said "Family Guy Did It First!" (which comment is in itself a South Park reference). :) Jeez, this comic is essentially a copy of that scene in that episode! :) NiceGuy1 (talk) 05:35, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

I came here to comment that this strip seemed awfully similar to this sketch video but it turns out that general hilarity caused by people time traveling and then talking to themselves is just a common comedic topic. Oh well. 10:01, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Maybe it is worthwhile to simply append a list of other takes on the comedic topic. My contribution is "What do the Teenage Boys do" Episode 4 06:09, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

It seems that a future version of Randall traveled back to stop him from referencing Terminator in xkcd, because he has not done it again after this comic. 01:27, 26 November 2023 (UTC)
