Alt: We didn't even get to the continued fractions!


Continued fractions = orgy?
Is 34 referring to rule 34? Cos the girl doesn't look in the right position to make a 4

34 looks painful and ln(2pi) is hysterical.

Yeah. At least they stopped before they got to Pi. Because that goes on and on (ALL NIGHT LONG).

Since i is imaginary, I'd assume it'd be a wet dream.

This is hilarious; worth creating an account for, actually. I'm trying to imagine what the ln(2pi) would look like (1.83787706...) :lol:

and I suppose negative numbers constitute doing it upside-down...

Think of it this way: when you next have sex, you can try out a few of these positions. Just be careful to use appropriate amounts of lube, and never, ever, use Poison Ivy as a substitute for Ethernet cable.

If you used numbers as a guide for sexual positions, I just realized the profound impact the font you used would have on your sex life.

Sans serif for when you want stuff fairly normal.
Serif when you want to mix it up.

Wingdings when you want to go crazy.

I don't see the 34, but it's still funny.

And this generally made me laugh so freaking hard.

And i'm expecting some sort of sequel maybe, or some more comments on 3.14 and i and DNE's and e^iPi etc

Frighteningly enough, who wants to bet this comic will inspire couples everywhere to try to replicate intricate maths problems and post pictures of it on a wetriffs-esque site?

How long, then, until we discover the "Goatse" number? Note: I don't want to think about it

I was given a framed xkcd-style comic as a present from the love of my live a few months ago. I think it was in the style of a 'K9'.

(No, not doggy: leg over body, arms caressing.. its quite a nice snuggle position.)

E03 would probably do okay.

I would check to see if it is a fair match but yeah right I'm not google image searching goatse.

It seems to me that rule 34 now applies to xkcd.

Basically at that point in the comic the characters had given up on emulating the sex positions so you don't get to see it.

The joke, as I interpret it, is "ho ho, wouldn't it be wacky if they did ln(2pi)?"

I thought it was pretty funny.

Ow, I think I just hurt myself laughing...

That works on so many levels...

This comic is just pure awesome

Edit: They should have tried e^iπ although I think that might be masturbation standing up

I suppose this comic probably demonstrates that 1 truly is the loneliest number.

So put your log in the pie or login to the pie or something like that.

"Is i masturbation?"

Nope, that'd be easy. Masturbation is defined by Tupper's self-referential formula. --or, for that matter, anything that takes itself as its own input.

But '71' is '69' with a finger in each bunghole.

I believe this comic embodies Rule 34 as applied to xkcd.

Also, if you look at the first panel, does that image actually *show* the guy's member? Look toward the bottom-left side of the girl's head. (Or is this wishful thinking??)
