Explanation

Where's Waldo is a children's puzzle book in which you have to spot out 'Waldo'. He usually is quite hard to find, which makes it slightly challenging. Cueball and his friend are using sattelite imaging to find Waldo, by holding the book up to the sky and viewing it on the computer. This would require a very advanced camera, as resolutions are usually low. But since Cueball works at the NRO, he probably has access to some powerful satellites.

Transcript

Cueball and a friend are in a remote area. The friend is holding a Where's Waldo? book towards the sky.

Laptop: [Target located]
Cueball: Got him. Left edge, two inches down.

  • List of all comics contains a complete table of all xkcd comics so far and the corresponding explanations. The red links (like this) are missing explanations. Feel free to help out by creating them!

Rules

Don't be a jerk. There are a lot of comics that don't have set in stone explanations, feel free to put multiple interpretations in the wiki page for each comic.

If you want to talk about a specific comic, use its discussion page.
