Jump to: navigation, search 21:11, 16 April 2013 (UTC)so is anybody weirded out by last week's post on the worst thing pressure cookers can do, followed by yesterday's terror attacks using pressure cookers? 21:11, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Do we want to add some references to the different What-If articles? Obviously putting up an explanation would be a bit of a waste since Randall goes into a lot of detail himself on any given subject. Some good things to mention might be the title-text on each image, mentions of recurring themes, and maybe some thought about the original subject mentioned (such as the "Space Oddity" music video that was the subject of a recent article). 17:11, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

"What if" is not Creative Commons related, so respect Randall's copyright. --Dgbrt (talk) 18:05, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry. Didn't realize that reviewing a creative work fell into copyright issues. No disrespect intended, only ignorance. 19:16, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
I agree that "what if?" is not clearly under CC-BY-NC-2.5, but the link next to the Copyright goes to xkcd itself, which clearly does say it is. Mark Hurd (talk) 13:40, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. What-if appears to fall under the general xkcd copyright- it says "Copyright ©2012-13 xkcd." with the link pointing to general xkcd copyright info. "" also says that "you are free to copy and reuse any of my drawings (noncommercially) as long as you tell people where they're from." which includes what-if drawings, and I'm not sure if just part of a work could be copyrighted without Randall explicitly saying so. I also think it would be a good idea to have articles on the what-ifs for more information not stated in the what-if itself. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)


I'm convinced there is some sort of specific joke in the "What If" logo, but I'm failing to grasp it. Knowing Randall, there has to be something funny about using a crane to lower a T-rex into the Sarlacc. 11:53, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
