Comic Monday

This comic is making the blog rounds today (via Clifford via Pharyngula):

In fact, you’ve probably seen it at least 5 times by now! It’s from the xkcd site, which is self-described as a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language, written by Randall Munroe, a physicist working at NASA Langley. I’ve just spent some serious time browsing the site and have been laughing hysterically. (In fact, since I’m sitting in my office alone, I think the guys on my floor are now completely convinced that I’m a bit “off,” if they didn’t already know it!) I can’t resist sharing a few more gems from the site (which explicitly states that is ok):

Ok, ok….I’ll stop now….

Oh – just one more!

    Pretty funny. Be sure not to miss the alt text commentary. (Mouse over each picture.) Some of those are pretty funny as well.

    agm: Yep, that’s another gem!

    The “miss your loved ones?” comic reminded me of an old Emo Philips routine:

    “Before I left for college, my dad said, ‘You know, son, I’m going to miss you.’ I said, ‘I know; that’s because I broke the sights off your shotgun.'”

    From a different strip, but I like this comic. (Helps to have seen “Good Will Hunting”.)

    The Schrödinger one has become the decoration of my 2 doors ;-) I think it fitted the footnote on my homepage really well …
