Re: 1363 - "xkcd Phone"

Re: 1305: "Undocumented Feature"

Sometimes I get this feeling when I use IRC. Seriously though: I am part of such a small group in a similar situation...we met in a random newsgroup and then migrated to IRC. No one uses our server but us and the original netadmin (who doesn't mind that we keep using it). No one bothers us. No one k...

All around the cathedral, the Saints and Apostles look down as she sells her wares. They also look down as she gets arrested for feeding the birds cyanide-laced bread crumbs.

Re: 1142: "Coverage"

It's a pun based on a Faraday Cage (which blocks signals) and a cage match. It's a before-and-after pun. Not a complex joke, but nonetheless very funny.

Re: 1084: "Server Problem"

IIRC, the singularity is the moment in time when computers become smarter than humans. Not correct. It is the point where humans supposedly can’t keep up with the technological progress anymore. Which is nonsense, since, as I explained above, there will never be such a point. Unless of course I hav...

Re: 0954: "Chin-Up Bar"

To the people claiming to be offended by this webcomic: You are quite obviously trolls.
To the people arguing with them: You have been trolled.

Of course, if anyone actually is offended (which I seriosuly doubt), then bear in mind you have the option to not read this webcomic. Exercise your right.

Re: 0940: "Oversight"

Fitocracy lacks "Sanding the floor", "Waxing the car", and "Painting the fence". Clearly Miyagi was just getting Daniel to do chores because he was a lazy jerk.

Re: 0867: "Herpetology"

Birds are Aves, which is part of the clade Theropoda, which is in Saurischia, which is in Dinosauria. Those birds outside our windows are dinosaurs. We can clear out the rest of our brains because we now have the best fact. This is not completely correct. Birds are Aves, which are part of the clade...

Re: xkcd sightings in your hometown (and other places)

A friend and I left this on the whiteboard after taking our final last night.

We added some stuff (like wikileaks next to the CIA).

I also apologize for the horrible image stitching.
