Re: "Urgent Mission" Discussion

I completely agree with this.

Re: "Westley's a Dick" discussion

I like it.

Coincidentally, my girlfriend thinks this is the "best birthday XKCD strip ever" (it's her birthday as of ~7 minutes ago).

...As you wish.

Re: "11th Grade" Discussion

I can really see how the the non-curriculum things will have a greater impact down the road. For example, my Calculus class in high school went reeeaaalllly sloooooooow. Seriously, it was the "honors" class, yet the lady spent a ridiculous amount of time on even simple things. Or I'm just ...

Re: "Simultaneous" Discussion

My first reaction was the "special relativity" part. I laughed so hard I startled my roommate. A moment later, I literally said "Wait. What?" It had been a while since I read anything about the whole space-time stuff, and my grasp of the humor flew past me, after that fleeting to...

Re: Secretary: Part 3

For several months after the 1337 story arc, my wallpaper was the 5 comics put into one huge comic.

Gravity wants to pull the counterweight straight down; however, if the short arm isn't hinged, the weight will forced to travel in an arch. This means less potential energy is effectivly transmitte...

Re: "Loud Party" discussion

Hmm... When I first see XKCD comics, I usually end up laughing in a couple seconds; this one had me scratching my head, though (although, thanks to this thread, I think that I get it now). My take on it, if it counts for anything: The girl on the left is kind of feeling out of place; she's not exact...

Re: "Wasteland" discussion

I also joined just after this comic... I didn't just get two impressions, I got three. The first two boxes hit home; keeping up a long distance relationship is difficult. Then, I saw the next two.
