XKCD: How Geeks Became Funny

Okay, I just have to share another awesome website. XKCD is a web comic that focuses on many geeky subjects. Many of the jokes are about physics, mathematics or computer programming. I have referenced many of the comics that apply to my life here on my blog.

Many others will not find this comic as amusing as I do. It just doesn't apply to their lives as often as it does to mine. I mean not only am I a computer programmer but the comic also often features cool things like dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are awesome!  That is an eternal truth. 

At any rate, I just wanted to give a shoutout to xkcd and its awesomeness. Also, I wanted to share the below comic, it doesn't apply to my life nearly as much as some other of the comics but it is flowing with awesome.

Well, there was the time I was on a space station that was crashing towards a dinosaur infested planet, but I brought plenty of tranquilizer that time so you can see how this comic doesn't apply to me.

P.S.  As much as I love this comic there are occasionally some sketchy ones.  I take no responsibility if you come upon one that offends you.  I would like to share the disclaimer that is on the site though:
Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).


  1. Dang. My dearest wish for the last 2 years of my life has been to understand these jokes. I guess I should have read the disclaimer about liberal arts majors. It would have saved me a lot of pretend laughter.

  2. Thanks for sharing with the world one more proof that I married a total GEEK! It is a good thing I heart Geeks!

  3. that comic has offended many of my liberal arts friends, but I sure love it.

  4. I was going to post something witty, but then I got distracted. So, is theater a type of liberal arts major? Because I will be doing that someday...

  5. i love XKCD. it totally appeals to my geeky nature and is hilarious. on a side note, i am so excited for the trifecta(you, jared and lisa) of power and their spouses date. it is going to totally rule.

  6. You may have read it already, but in case you haven't you should check out darthsanddroids.net (start form the beginning). I think you may relate to it, or at least find it hilarious. Also, my favorite web comic is wondermark.com (apply standard disclaimers about possible offense).

  7. How boring the world would be without geeks to keep us entertained!!
