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

My first thought was that this isn't necessarily about Maggie dying. I think a person geeky and lonely enough would have this reaction even if Maggie only left her and didn't die. Also there is no clear reference to Maggie dying apart from being compared to Aeris. (I haven't gotten to this part of the game yet so I don't know if she dies enough to assume Maggie died too. I'd say thanks to Randall for the spoiler hadn't been this very comic the reason I started playing.) Matega (talk) 06:40, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

I wondered about that too, but the statement "you can't bring her back" and the reference to her "old dresses" seem to imply that Maggie is, in fact, permanently dead. 09:35, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
Idunno... it would certainly make it a bit more creepy if she left him and he still had her "old dresses", though -- Brettpeirce (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Why is there doubt that Randall knew about the mod? He basically described it to a tee. -- Flewk (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Now that they're making an FFVII remake, I just thought of this. Since Aerith's death was so iconic and memorable that people went to such lengths to revive her, maybe they could revive her in a DLC that will piss off so many people for making it a DLC but they'll still buy it. It will sell like hot cakes. --FrigusAvis162.158.167.228 04:03, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

My wife, before she learned about unlimited cash hacks, would have her sim marry another sim, get him to climb into a swimming pool and then take out the ladder, so then he'd eventually drown and she'd gain all his resources, then do this again with another sim..and another. We're divorced now. —Kazvorpal (talk) 22:45, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Well, then... It could have turned out worse for you! 02:21, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

Is the title also a reference to Dies Irae, the musical word for death? -- 01:50, 9 May 2023 (UTC)
