Re: 1587: "Food Rule"

Re: 1572: "xkcd Survey"

This is definitely (previous word is likely to be a contender for most misspelled) the best xkcd in a while. I'm looking forward to parsing the data and publishing a paper on the correlation between people that can't spell 'cat' and don't like chocolate ice cream. Even reading the comments here ther...

It looks like Google helpfully removed that feature from their mobile search app. I couldn't find a way to do it without having to install a separate app (lame).

Re: 1107: "Sports Cheat Sheet"
