What's your favourite XKCD comic?

Postby screech » Sat Feb 10, 2007 10:14 pm UTC

If this has been done before, I apologise.

Anyway, http://xkcd.com/c108.html is my favourite one, with http://xkcd.com/c203.html as the runner up.

Because I am a hopeless romantic, http://xkcd.com/c162.html. The Angular Momentum one.

I also like the ball playpen one and the blanket fort one.

edit: I've done that twice now. there needs to be an emoticon like that

other edit: I like the playpen balls one, the angular momentum one, and now the tent one, but at the same time I haven't found one that I don't like. Only a few that I wish I understood...

Angular momentum is my favorite because it's so cheesy and sweet that it makes me smile. I want a girl like that. :/

Grownups comes in second. I'm a sucker for the cute romantic strips.

You don't, you limit it to one.

What is with people that just go ahead and make up there own damn rules right in the middle of the game? Does it say favorite two?

Sorry, i've had a rough year and an especially rough night. I don't intend to be mean, and want to delete those questions, so you don't even know I said them, but I will leave them for posterity's sake.

I like warm sake and homonyms.

Angular momentum was by far, its what made me like xkcd, also the reason the last girl i met at a party with left without looking back. :( (I asked her if she would do that).

I've no idea what my favourite one is, because any time I thought I'd decided, I'd read through the archives again and change my mind. That said, I really liked e^pi x i because my reaction to that was exactly that of the guy in it. And 'It was was too good not to happen' left me feeling happy and fulfilled for at least half an hour.

Garfield.

I like to think, as the POV zooms in, that we can see his head vibrating ever so slightly, like a person tensing all of their neck muscles at once, but somehow it becomes apparent that it is reality itself that is shaking.

Wait, what?
