eh...for you I agree... for me, I'm in my office (as usual), and from the next office they always give me weird looks... spooky, green weird looks :shock:

I'd have thought that would be: "spooky, green wierd looks :mrgreen:"
Having become a Wizard on n.p. 2183, the Yellow Piggy retroactively appointed his honorable self a Temporal Wizardly Piggy on n.p.1488, not to be effective until n.p. 2183, thereby avoiding a partial temporal paradox. Since he couldn't afford two philosophical PhDs to rule on the title.

Before I read the caption I thought the guy was referring to the font on the tombstone itself.

"We put an explosive charge in your head.

The worst place to wander while using a hands-free headset is anywhere that has other people. It's a Catch-22, really; you could have it blatantly displayed on your ear and get disgusted looks, or cover it with a hood or long hair or something and get weird looks.

I've been a big advocate of giving bluetooth headsets to homeless people so they don't look crazy when they talk to themselves.

You guys have it lucky. If I read xkcd, and chuckle, the sysadmin comes over, says ``Oh, I haven't read today's yet, let me see it... and I haven't read Monday's either...'' And there goes my computer for the day. But it's okay, because then I go sit at his computer :twisted:

Actually, I should probably wear one mine more often for the same reason.

Randal, you skunked me.
I've been working on a story line to put in a comic book short or a short video along these lines, was up to 20+ pages of narrative outline, and here comes this comic and puts it succinctly in one panel.

AARRGGH!

I'm humbled by the blinding light of pure genius.

Typography geeks will probably hate me for saying this, but...
I think most sans-serif fonts look the same as each other.
