View Full Version : What-if (xkcd)

03-19-2015, 06:11 PM
Anyone else noticed that the Flagpole question (https://what-if.xkcd.com/) on what-if(xkcd) briefly mentions this thread (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=515612)?

Does he mention these boards often? Is the author(Randall Munroe?) somehow related to Cecil?

He's done it a time or two before. It's unknown whether he's a regular lurker, or just occasionally stumbles across us in a Google search. If he's ever posted here, it hasn't been openly.
