I think this might be also a joke on how computer programming and/or hacking is presented in action movies. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think the explanation of "explaining in simpler terms" should be expanded as how interactions with computers can be so complex (i.e. trying to make something specific work in Linux) but at the same time look absolutely pointless if observed by someone who understands little to nothing about computers. 13:56, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I've thought a similar thing about video games. The way you win is by moving the controls in a precise sequence, which if you knew, you wouldn't need to look at the screen to be victorious. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I'm a software developer and have this comic hanging up by my desk. It helps keep things in perspective when things get a bit too overwhelming. 21:49, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I was under the impression that cats gravitated to keyboards less for the warmth and more for the "Hello you are paying attention to that thing and not me, which is ridiculous because I am obviously the most important thing and now I will remind you of that." factor. -Pennpenn 05:23, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Does Randall Munroe have a cat?[edit]

Can someone please confirm this?


I cannot confirm this, But is likely that Randall has a Friend Named Catherine, This might be a reference to that comic, but I highly doubt it, So he could be saying that his friend Catherine could be the one he's explaining this to 18:58, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

That comic came out WAY later. Either you didn't think that through when you posted it, or you don't know how time works. I'm fine with either, really. 19:56, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

I have no ideal if this is intentional humor, or someone who forgot they had the plugin installed, but either way it’s hilarious, thank you! PotatoGod (talk) 00:31, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
