When we unite against a common enemy that attacks our ethos, it nurtures group solidarity. Trolls are sensational, yes, but we keep everyone honest. | Game Memorial

Wouldn't work here, we don't support footnote numbers over footnote numbers... :P

Oh well, reminds me of that '3 doors, 1 chance to win, winning stats are fucked up after you open the first one' theory[1]... It's something that people made up to pretend they're smart! xkcd is a bit like that sometimes... ::)

No, we don't, but it's still funny :)

And yes, that's the thing that makes xkcd funny, is that it really does put a strange twist on reality by exploring the deeper aspects of it.
