    XKCD: Click and Drag

    Just wanted to share a truly mind-blowing comic from Randall Munroe. Check it out at http://www.xkcd.com/1110/, but be sure to have plenty of free time.

    Thanks for reminding me. Between Diablo3, WoW, Okami I hardly have screentime to visit xkcd. And this is truly a gem! I am afraid I might miss something and might spend too much time, investigating all of it.
    Anyone found soemthing up in the sky/below ground? I am still going right, gonna check left after that then maybe sky/underground.
    Again, thanks for the reminder!

    And I hate it......okay not really...but that mine!!! OMG!!!! WHY!!!! WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY!!!! END!!! END ALLREADY!!! END!!!
    *breathes heavily*
    Well atleast I found the minecraft reference

    EDIT:

    I wished there was a save button, so I could continue exploring some other day

    EDIT: MAde it out alive....can't say whether my sanity remains intact :P (might have missed a few corridors, not sure, but not going down there,...EVER AGAIN!)

    EDIT:

    And it's done.......I think. There are probably things in the sky that I missed...but I have a life...(hard to defend that claim after re-reading my own post)....or at least better things to do ;P

    What have you done to me. So far I've seen a star wars reference and a Minecraft one.

    Hah, fun. I traveled down Super Mario's death pits. Now I see Flagpole Sitta. Can't imagine how long this thing took to create. How big is it, and what's at the other end if you go all the way down? Anything in the sky?

    I don't usually read this, just not my taste of comic, but this was awesome, kudos to the artist.

    read the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, and you'll see. and then you'll go looking for a bowl of petunias in the sky.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    I'm a long-time regular XKCD reader, but for me this was definitely one of the highlights in the history of the comic.

    It's incredible how easy it is to appeal to our desire to explore.
