1458: Small Moon

http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/small_moon.png Title text:GENERAL JAN DODONNA: An analysis of the plans provided by Princess Leia has reinvigorated the arguments of the 'artificial moonlet' and 'rogue planet-station' camps. I fear this question is fracturing the Rebellion. If it's orbiting another plan...

Not necessarily. Could be existential, in which case they'd just be obligated to honk at least once.

Seeing as how it's run from 2001 to the present, isn't Adult Swim the turn-of-the-century Adult Swim?

Re: "Asteroid" discussion

My Deep Impact/Little Prince crossover fanfic has been poorly received by the community.


As long as no one rule34s this, we're ok. :D

Re: To Be Wanted Discussion

I hope it isn't Adventure Girl and Computer Guy. If it is, it would mean that he didn't go with her, which would be the saddest ending to comic 308 I could think of. I like to think that those two are kissing and shouting yo momma jokes at seagulls in a zeppelin over some tropical paradise. You cou...

Re: "Turing Test" Discussion

Holy cow, I was messing around with Jabberwacky today, and it's definitely going for the extra points. (Jabberwacky text is bolded) That's cruel. I though we were friends. We can't be friends. I'm human, you're a bot. I am human. Prove it. Human. Wow, very convincing. So I am right then. You are not...

I've never even heard of Redwall before, but I did laugh at the public key inscription.

Re: The Answer!

The answer is R/9. While I could claim the answer is all mine (solved it on my shower tiles, no less), I can't. Most students in India preparing for the dreaded IIT Joint Entrance Exams will be familiar with the solution because a similar problem shows up in a book of physics problems by Irodov. As...

Re: "Nerd Sniping" Discussion

the way i see it is that the trail to the resistors is 2n+1 and if there is only 1 path the resistance would be the sumof 1/(2n+1) from 1 to infinity and that diverges. so since there are an exponential more paths as n goes along. so the resistance should be 0. The problem, I think, is that those p...

Re: POST HERE FIRST - INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi folks. I'm a computer engineering student from Illinois. I've been reading the strip for around a year now, and while I've been tempted to register for a while now, I've just gotten around to it (to make a comment about the problem in Nerd Sniping).

Re: "Nerd Sniping" Discussion

I registered just because I wanted to say how much this comic hurt my drunken, nerdy brain :( Now, I'm no Math or Physics major - or anything even slightly numberworthy (I majored in music composition), so my initial thought was that the resistance would be 3Ω (three equal length "shortest pat...
