xkcd art I made

I was inspired by the "I'm going to try science" t-shirt to make something fun for my iPad while I taught at Shakespeare day camp, and I thought it was only right to share it here with other xkcd fans. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y208/KyrieEleison/xkcdshakespeare_zps95bca7d7.png Most ...

Re: 0846: "Dental Nerve"

It's pretty funny that Kesha (I refuse to put a dollar sign in her name) was the topic of today's strip, because I had just watched this MST3K video . The alt-text is great. C'mon, it's a great song! At least, when you watch it with this Doctor Who music video . Looks like she's getting around the f...

Thank goodness that died out after about three years, although depending on what you're looking ...

Re: "Outreach" Discussion

Shouldn't the title-text read "repellent" as opposed to "repellant"? Or am I just being silly? Nope, "repellent" and "repellant" are both acceptable spellings, according to the four (six if you include law and medical) dictionaries that make up dictionary.com .

First raptors, now sharks. Is there any animal which Randall will not cause us to fear (completely rationally, of course)? There is no way he'd make us fear cats.

Re: Latin Translation Enthusiasts, Unite!

Thank you! I really like the way you wrote "Let us love life, God, literature," so I was inspired to rearrange the words a bit.

Deum, vitam, litteras amemus (Let us love God, life, literature).

A good motto for an English major, yes?

Not necessarily. There is a group of us - I don't know how big - that are more into the Humanities, yet like xkcd no matter how much the math/programming language makes our heads hurt.
