    Here's one about the Navy UFO videos. Perhaps Mr Munroe will do ones about FLIR1 and GIMBAL as well.

    Just search it, chosen to be unpronounceable. Enjoy.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    According to Munroe, the comic's name has no particular significance and is simply a four-letter word without a phonetic pronunciation, something he describes as "a treasured and carefully guarded point in the space of four-character strings."

    Nice!
    Long live your four base word style, xRay King Comb Dome just won’t meet that high mark. Some seem near this idea from less well told ways, more than half give sway from afar. Let’s hear more from four, long days here with just lone self game work Pads.

    Makes a lot more sense than saying it was a random collection of letters.

    Wrong Times Table is wrong, at least for me.

    Because it's still commutative. 4x9 is 28, as is 9x4. They could be something quite different. If you ask me what's 9x7 I'd struggle a moment to come up with 63.
