Feathered Dinosaurs Are Cool, Take 2

My favorite part of XKCD’s gorgeous “Click And Drag”:

I can just see the one on the right, thinking “Feathered dinosaurs are cool…”

What’s your favorite bit? WARNING: clicking (and dragging) on “Click And Drag” can be habit forming. Or it might just suck you into an inescapable time-suck. Proceed at your own risk!

    I didn’t manage to get to the end of what I suspect is a sky elevator, so I can’t really say. The leaping humpback whale must be pretty high up the list. Going back now to look at the rest of it!

    I thought’d I’d spent way too much time clicking around that comic, but I didn’t even find any of the things you guys have mentioned! Oh noes, there goes my afternoon.

    Dinosaurs are my favorite too. I was disappointed by the lack of octopus, then again maybe there was a mimic octopus http://xkcd.com/928/

    Is there an easier way to navigate around that pane? This is going to seriously aggravate my carpal tunnel….

    If you go to the xkcd forum, there is a thread on today’s comic. Several people have done one sort of modification or another, including some that allow you to zoom out and in, and one that allows you to use the keyboard arrows to navigate. Interestingly, there are discussions about whether that ruins the experience….

    Anything interesting deep underground or in the ocean/lake?

    Underground, yes! follow the tunnels. In the water, I don’t know.

    I found a Creeper somewhere in the tunnels, chasing down a miner. That made me lol.

    There is a jellyfish. I thought it was an octopus at first, but on closer inspection, just a jellyfish. Is the window with light pouring out of it a bathyscaphe?

    The guy trying to sell lemonade to people falling down a chasm.

    “Lemonade? Awwww, ok. Lemonade? Awwww. Ok. Lemonade?”

    There is a far left wall and a far right wall. I presume there is a top and bottom, too.

    Anyone else find the giant UFO in a huge underground cavern?

    There are three more jellyfish 3 screens down and 5 screens right from the bow of the three masted ship.

    there are several planes. Also whales in the sky. No petunias that I can see, though…

    I had never heard of a “fencepost error”. As a programmer I know about the condition, I had just never heard the term.

    The bad part… I got several hundred moves from the home screen and accidentally clicked on the [NEXT] button while I was trying to drag the picture. That took me to a different comic page and when I came back I was at the home screen again. I don’t know if I want to do those same hundreds of moves over just to reach an unexplored area. I never did find the dinosaurs but I saw the giant jellyfish, the leaping whale, the lemonade seller, and the Mario comment.
    I wonder if someone has mapped it? I’m guessing they probably have.
