  • Obtaining eleven of an item at once from whatever source will result in the following message:
    Lime.gifYou acquire 11 limes
    (That's ridiculous. It's not even funny.)
  • Eleven is the maximum number of different items that can be sent in one message. It is also the maximum number of different items you can add to or remove from Your Colossal Closet or remove from Hagnk's Ancestral Mini-Storage at one time. Trying to add or remove more items brings the message "Eleven is enough."
  • Trying to add more than eleven different types of items to your store in the mall gives you the error message, "I think you've had enough, kid. I'm cuttin' you off. (That's too many rows.)"
  • Trying to add more than eleven different types of items at a time to the clan stash results in the error message, "That's enough rows for one transaction, ne?"
  • If you edit and save your time zone information in your KoL player profile, you see this message: "Time zone updated. Do you know how many time zones there are in the Soviet Union?" Additionally, if you roll over the "time zone" link, it links to javascript:toggle('ridiculous'); Also, this was, at one time, the 11th option from the top on the account menu.
  • If you attempted to add more than 11 shelves to your display case before January 19, 2006, you'd have seen the message: "You can't have more than 11 shelves, because that would be WAY more than ridiculous." Since then, the limit has been extended to 37. Taking or adding eleven items from the display case, or trying to take or add more than eleven rows of items works like the clan stash or colossal closet.

Players

  • Bjorn (#11), not to be confused with the "Mighty Bjorn" who is now known as Mr Skullhead.

Dates

  • On the old announcements page, "(11/11 -- it's ridiculous.)" is written next to the November 11th 2004 announcement.
  • On October 11, 2005, the comfy blanket first appeared.
  • The Temporal Riftlet is the eleventh Mr. Store familiar, counting the Emo Squid, that was ever released. It was also released on the eleventh month of 2005, and the digits in the name of its familiar equipment, 1.21 jigawatts, form the square of 11, 121 (as 121 is itself the square of 11).
  • November 11, 2011 (11/11/11) was a day of special ridiculousness. Ridiculously, adventurers gained 11 bonus Adventures, some ridiculous Assessories, and ridiculous booze or food.

References

  • The question "Do you know how many time zones there are in the Soviet Union?" and the statement "It's ridiculous. It's not even funny" are references to the song "Time Zones" by Negativland, from the album Escape from Noise. The track is a sound collage which uses a recording of a radio talk show as source material.
  • The musical "eleven" reference on The Super-Secret Canadian Mind-Control Device comes from the rock band mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap.
  • 1.21 Jigawatts comes from the movie Back to the Future, as 1.21 gigawatts (1.21 = 1.12) was how much power the Delorean needed to travel through time (as well as traveling at 88, or 8*11, mph). This power could only be generated through harnessing lightning or nuclear processes.
