Another question this suggests is whether you should wait 28 days (Moderna) or 21 days (Pfizer) between doses... JohnHawkinson (talk) 02:50, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Average and get 24.5 days? bubblegum-talk|contribs 18:50, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Can someone clarify if I, the banshee, or both need to be in the catamaran? Cwallenpoole (talk) 04:34, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

I'd say at least the banshee needs to be in the catamaran. If only you were in it, but the banshee wasn't, you'd be slaying it from (or with, if you use the catamaran as a weapon), rather than in a catamaran. Bischoff (talk) 11:18, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Isn't that like the Groucho Marx joke? "I once shot an elephant in my pajamas. How it got into my pajamas, I don't know." Barmar (talk) 23:56, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

For those that read XKCD here first - yes, the original comic really is that low quality. I suspect Randall's going to replace it with a cleaner one at some point. 23:10, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Unless the low quality is intentional, some way-over-my-head joke about vaccines and mRNA, maybe? -- or the low-quality of the image as an analogy for the low-quality of the rhymes? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Looks like he's uploaded a better version now. I don't know how to replace the image, though. Argis13 (talk) 23:40, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

It's still low quality at Troy0 (talk) 00:14, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
You can't (I just tried it). The image shown is scaled up by 2×, and the non-scaled version (the one displayed) is anti-aliased. bubblegum-talk|contribs 00:20, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Looks like Randall fixed it now. 00:39, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
I believe that the proper file should be vaccine_ordering_2x.png Bubblegum is correct. Icil34 (talk) 01:00, 9 February 2021 (UTC)Icil34
That was a typo (it should be "is not anti-aliased"). The 2x one is displayed on xkcd, while the non-2x one is displayed on explainxkcd. The non-2x version was not anti-aliased when I made that comment, but it is now. bubblegum-talk|contribs 01:17, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Just uploaded the new version.DKMell (talk) 01:05, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

I'd like to upload the original aliased files but I don't have permission to create new pages.[edit]

The original 1x version is here and the 2x version, still aliased but with 4 pixels of #f7f7f7, is here Landfillbaby (talk) 01:21, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

I see the right one now162.158.187.161 15:03, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
