XKCD references on the XKCD wiki? Who would've thought... 06:58, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm so meta even this acronym.

I believe that the ios word prediction is personalised based on your previous sentences. My Android autocomplete comes up with "Elementary, my feast of the United Kingdom", and "Toto, I've a feeling we're not going to Switzerland"... --Pudder (talk) 07:53, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

I imagine it is, but it's still interesting to see the defaults before you've added much to the dictionary. I believe this is what Randall is up to. 13:00, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

What about adding a reference to XKCD Questions[1]? --Jkotek

Wasn't there XKCD comics about keyboard prediction starting from blank state? --JakubNarebski (talk) 09:57, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

[2] You're welcome. 10:04, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

I thought some of the humor for the LoTR reference was the Gimli's dad was a character in The Hobbit. Obviously, Randall didn't work this in, but it could've affected his choice to feature this one in the comic Djbrasier (talk) 16:35, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Given the outcome of the Scottish referendum on secession, it seems to me that the iOS-updated version of Wallace's quote is perfectly appropriate. -- 23:01, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Wallace didn't fight the British, he fought the English. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Incomplete, anyone? Or is this wiki just goigo explain jokes Randall himself has made? It's probably the latter case, since nobody seems to have had a problem in four years. 05:49, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

William Wallace's quote actually goes "They can take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom". 01:59, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Shouldn't the quote shown in the illustration at the top be explained too? It's not a movie per se, but still. --Theanswertolifetheuniverseandeverything (talk) 00:57, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Done. 19:56, 22 October 2021 (UTC)
