Cueball does not think in multiples of 2, he thinks in base 2 (or powers of 2). I fixed it. 10:35, 10 September 2012‎ (UTC)

In the original Blog format of this website, someone named Phillip had shared the following:

"Spoiler ( ): Pbaarpg gur ovanel ahzoref ba gur fznyy fvtaf va cnvag-ol-ahzoref znaare."

Hint: copy/paste the weird looking text into the text field provided in the above mentioned website. Even after decryption, I couldn't follow what he meant, but I was hoping someone out there can do so and then explain it differently, thanks. It's a real mystery.

Just curious... The explanation says there are 1000 characters in the drawing. Are there 998 + Megan & Cueball? or do they make 1002? --B. P. (talk) 11:06, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

The transcript says "1000 characters ... are arranged to create the number "1000". Two more people stand in the foreground" so I think Megan & Cueball make it 1002. Coombeseh (talk) 10:56, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

There's a WOPR machine saying "would you like to play a game?" 05:51, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

I noticed Barrel Boy isn't on here... Jimmy C (talk) 19:10, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Barrel Boy is bottom right on the second "O", just above "WOOOO!" Coombeseh (talk) 10:56, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Well about what cueball says another interesting fact is that the number 1024 is used commonly in computer data, 1024 megabytes makes a gigabyte and so on...

So, has anyone noticed that this wasn't actually Randall's thousandth comic, but rather his 999th? Schiffy (talk) 16:44, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Is there a numbered comic that was omitted?13:09, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
