XKCD's Randall Munroe presents Thing Explainer live at Rickshaw Stop
Randall Munroe returns with his newest book Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words. Based on the widely popular webcomic XKCD, Munroe provides simple explanations for the world's most perplexing things, like food-heating radio boxes (microwaves), tall roads (bridges), computer buildings (datacenters), and the bags of stuff inside you (cells). Like his two previous bestselling books, What if? and XKCD: Volume 0, Munroe combines his scientific explorations into signature drawings that are funny, interesting, and always understandable.

Question: Hi my name is Rehan! I actually asked a question previously, but I'm not sure if it was sent. If so, please ignore this message. If not, I just wanted to check that if I'm a minor and accompanied by my parents, would I need to purchase only one ticket for the event or tickets for my parents as well? Thanking you, Tx. and Regards Rehan S. Durrani
Answer: Hi Rehan- Every person attending needs to have a ticket. If you have any other questions, please feel to contact us directly at Thank you.
Question: Suppose that I want to attend the event, but I don't want a book. Do I still have to pay? Can I get a discount?
Answer: Hello- admission is with a book only and you must purchase a ticket in order to attend. There are no discounts. Thank you.
Question: Hello- I previously purchased a ticket, but current circumstances may prevent me from being able to attend the event. Would I be able to get my ticket moved under the name of a friend so that they can pick up the copy of the book I purchased. This friend already has a ticket and will be attending regardless.
Answer: Hello- please email at Thank you.
Question: The tickets say doors at 6, event at 7, but the Rickshaw Stop just says 6pm. Can you clarify?
Answer: The doors open at 6pm and the program begins at 7pm.
