We need a citation to prove that residents of Cheyenne, Wyoming would rather not be targeted with nuclear weapons? 19:06, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

As no residents have already requested otherwise, let's go ahead and nuke them now. SDSpivey (talk) 19:49, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Seriously, though, a sufficiently patriotic American living in Cheyenne, WY may potentially prefer that the relatively unimportant city of his or her residence be nuked instead of the more militarily important[citation needed] Cheyenne Mountain Complex. 20:37, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Is the citation needed for the military importance or for the crazy patriotic guy? Linker (talk) 20:40, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
I did not laugh at the comic today. However, I startled people around me laughing at the placement of this [citation needed] in the description. Kudo's to whomever placed it. DanB (talk) 21:32, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Wouldn't it make more sense to create a seperate page to collect all the "xkcd-Wikipedia effect" cases? I'm kinda surprised there isn't one already. Model Rail isn't even the only time that happened. One other example being 11:23, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Similar comics

The format of this comic is highly similar to the recent comic 2042: Rolle's Theorem, with a title and From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia header, and the first few paragraphs in the article. The fact that the reference of this comic to fuzzy string matching matches 1031: s/keyboard/leopard/'s reference to regex (comic 1031 also has a Wikipedia page format) Can we have kind of a 'Meme format' explanation and Randall's fascination with this format?

There have been several comics referencing nuclear weapons in one way of another. Have added link to 1655: Doomsday Clock in the description because there is already a collection of comics about this there. But do we need a category, so that kind of explanation could go there? --Kynde (talk) 14:15, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
