If you are 20 now and look at something happening 10 years ago. Then when you are twice as old 40 you look at the same ting and that will then be 30 years old. It will always be 10 years younger than you. There was a mistaken explanation of the title text saying something like what you say, and now I have corrected it. He just means that if you show them this chart again when their age has doubles, you can say that this chart has now existed in the majority of your life.
He deserves to be embarrassed after the communist comic he posted on Monday. It's Trump who likes Putin, where Clinton would be more against him I guess he just thought people needed something that could distract them from the election, since most of his readers especially after his previous comic would have rooted for Clinton because of their fear that Trump won.
On the other hand most people probably feels old today, after the election, so in that way the comic is a bit of a waste Too bad, so sad. Whoop whoop pull up talk If I wanted to make someone feel old, I would pick an event that they think is fairly ancient and tell them: Did Randall get his comic backwards or am I missing something?
However, the major event shifts earlier and earlier into their life; when their age has doubled, the event in the chart has happend in the year of their birth.

I agree that the This is just a regular comic which happened to be published on 1 April.Randall Munroe: "What If?" - Talks at Google
Interpret that however you'd like. I came up with 4 meters on my first calculation, realized there was a mistake, corrected the units and got 7. Now, if your units are correct and you got 10cm, then you might want to move to a quieter neighborhood.

Do NOT delete this tag too soon. Thor is a god of lightning and thunder in Norse mythology. He's likely best known for his role in Marvel comics and filmswhich his appearance here seems to be referencing.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, Avengers: Infinity War, Thor also wields an axe named Stormbreaker. Although this hammer was historically a weapon, this comic interprets it as it would more commonly be interpeted today -- as a tool. The comic is listing various hand tools in order of utility and viability as Thor's weapon, besides his actual, enchanted hammer.
