Not positive enough to change, but..."Randall's now wife"? Is that supposed to be 'Randall's NEW wife'? -- 02:00, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

No. At the time, she was his fiancee. She is now his wife. His then-fiancee, now-wife. 01:32, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
This explain now covers this issue very well. Thanks for your hints. --Dgbrt (talk) 22:35, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
My edit to the transcript

I've noticed that when the only characters in a comic are two stick figures, explainxkcd usually calls them "Cueball" and "Friend". So I changed this transcript to reflect that. I tried to clarify what "off-panel" meant, and I added the fact that the second Cueball-only panel shows only the top half of his body. Lastly, I changed "roughly fifty" to "fifty-two", since an exact count of the lanes was given in the explanation. I hope no one disagrees with these changes, but if you do, please don't just revert without an explanation. NealCruco (talk) 19:06, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Just read Jimmy Carter's got cancer. I echo the sentiments of the IP poster above me.PsyMar (talk) 20:54, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Might be worth mentioning too that this resembles a Sankey Diagram 07:13, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

this comics meaning to me[edit]

As someone who has previously have family members battle with cancer, this was shockingly realistic. My mother got breast cancer and had treatment which seemed to work. Ten years later she got sick again and ended up dying. The idea that treatment works or doesn't is simply incorrect and a single cancer cell can become a massive potentially fatal problem in the seemingly distant future.
