    This is just...It's just inhuman, is what it is.

    I'm going to be doing this for hours. Just. Hours.

    I bet you there's something interesting in the whitespace "above" the world, just because XKCD.

    Great, now I'm addicted. I thought the homage to Super Mario Bros. was cool.

    I was just going to post that. Too much traffic.

    Oh well, guess I can scroll through it bit by bit throughout the day. It works better on a touchscreen than on a computer, I've found.

    Super Mario? Oregon Trail? Hah.

    This is the greatest engineering achievement of mankind.

    I went left from the start, past the skyscraper and found a tunnel leading underground. It is very, VERY deep.

    Oh, I've been going to the right this whole time.


    And yeah, it seems people are mirroring the full map. I'm not going to look though. This is fun. Sort of.

    edit yay spelunking!

    ... ****. I've got a test to study for!

    I've concluded that Randall is probably Satan trying to tempt us.

    So does it eventually loop? I also got lost underground in a sea of black and had to close it. I did enjoy the Star Wars reference down there.

    EDIT: Look like you can't go left anymore when you reach two characters talking about being on the other side of the world and they only went 2 miles.

    I just got to the apparent end of one of those falling Mario holes. Took about five minutes.

    edit: reached "I wonder where I'll float next."

    Because I'm an explorer I went down aaall the way as far as I could. And then over, back up into the ocean, back to the right and.... I wound up back at the beginning 0_o

    My instinct was actually to go straight up as soon as it started but I went pretty far without finding anything so I came back down. I did see a giant jellyfish thing in the sky at one point, though, so I'm betting there's more up there.

    There are two types of people in this world: those who scroll right from the start, and those who scroll left.

    So you're saying people in the West and people in the Middle East are fundamentally different types of people? Is that what you're saying? [face_plain]


    Also, I scrolled straight up from the start :) What kind of person does that make me?
