xkcd is my favourite thing on the internet. The lunch area for my research building always has at least two xkcd comics posted (beside the research papers about the zombie apocalypse and tasering sheep). How he manages to capture everything that is fantastic and yet self-acknowledgingly geeky about being in science in a few panels of stick figures never ceases to amaze me. Maybe it’s just a scientist thing though – I send Jusarious comics all the time and he barely finds them amusing. Still, I’m having an extremely dull day, and today’s comic makes it all worth while.
