...And angular velocity: 1.97 mHz 23:29, 14 December 2014 (UTC) This just makes me sad for Homestuck. ----

One must wonder whether Randall noticed the Homestuck connection at the time of making this comic. He is, apparently, a fan, as Homestuck is linked on the main xkcd site, but this comic was made within only a few months of the comic's start, so he mightn't have heard of it yet.-- 03:36, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

This is about 16 cents away from a very, very, *very* low A, for what it's worth. 22:18, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't speak... uh... I have no idea what language you're speaking. This comment is incomprehensible to me. 18:49, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
Apparently cents is a musical term that has a correlation to frequency. The A is a musical note. [1] 02:35, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

A cent is a frequency ratio of 21/1200 to 1. Just as there are 20 decibels in a 10-fold increase in sound amplitude, there are 100 cents in a semitone and 12 semitones in an octave. --Tepples (talk) 03:29, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
A(-27), to be exact, though I don't believe there's actually any standard notation for notes lower than C0. 23:30, 6 May 2022 (UTC)

@TheSmartestNoob - This 'correction' of grammer seems not to have fixed anything, and actually broken it. I undid it, and I would have explained this on your own Talk page, but you don't have one and I wouldn't be able to create it. Did you mean to rewrite it as "A period is also called a menstrual cycle. It is a process marked by (etc...)"? But still, I can't see a problem with the current (again, as of now) version. 18:44, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
