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

Strange - this explanation seems significantly less complete than 24: Godel, Escher, Kurt Halsey and not significantly less complex - anyone care to weight in on that thought? -- Brettpeirce (talk) 13:31, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Davidy22 picks the daily incomplete explanation randomly from the list of incomplete explanations. So, each page has a fair chance of getting picked, but they don't necessarily have a rating of "needs most help" to "doesn't need much help" that is used to pick. Feel free to work on other explanations. The banner is just to help new users who want to jump in and get their hands dirty but don't know where to start. lcarsos_a (talk) 19:29, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Ponies is *not* a reference to My Little Pony (or at least, it cannot be one to the "Friendship is Magic" incarnation.) This comic is from 2006. FIM didn't debut until 2010. Either Randall has a time machine (a possibility one cannot, of course, completely exclude), or the reference is to something earlier. 23:44, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Makes me wonder what state MLP was in at that time. G3? G3.5 (also known as the Hell Babies edition)? -- 06:55, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Ponies may be a reference to the OMG Ponies! theme that attacked slashdot for April Fools Day back in that timeframe (my eyes still burn when I think about it).Seebert (talk) 21:52, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Why does he misspell "blagosphere"? What's this "blog" stuff? 05:08, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Since "web 2.0" is the current thing, "web 7.1" could also be a reference to the different surround sound configurations 2.0 and 5.1 and 7.1. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Could CSS be Counter Strike? Source, specifically. It’s the only thing I’ve ever heard of as CSS. Netherin5 (talk) 16:03, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

And not one Blagojevich reference, even though that would've been contemporaneous to the comic. Blah. — Kazvorpal (talk) 01:41, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Does anyone know when Dandified Yum (DNF), the open source package manager for Fedora started development? If it was before this comic was released, then it is possible it could be referring to that. 12:23, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
