Xkcd


An interesting little webcomic I encountered, especially for the computer or technically adept. For anyone interested you can read it ]here. Or perhaps some of you already know of it?

One thing I have found amusing at time is how at times things in it seem to happen kind of in the real world, or how some sites then say that xkcd said it first. emoticon

Re: Xkcd


We used to have an xkcd link over at FA. Thanks for reviving it, I had forgotten how good the comic was.

I read it all the time at work. I've got a bunch of the comics printed out on my office door, too. emoticon

This one gets the most attention:
]XKCD: "The Difference"

(and it's so TRUE!)

Re: Xkcd


Another excellent example of a good comic:

]XKCD: "Height"

There's just something about including the "Romulan Neutral Zone" in there that really cracks me up. ...And I have to admit, it also made me go, "Really? The Romalans were THAT CLOSE in Star Trek?!" But that's just me... emoticon

*cringe* I am strongly biased against the space elevator concept. It sounds cool. It makes great science fiction. It makes TERRIBLE engineering! emoticon

Oh no, QS got started on space elevators. Look out folks, this is one of his true loves! (Perhaps a space elevator thread?)
