Re: 1570: "Engineer Syllogism"

Re: What-If 0133: "Flagpole"

One big caveat that strikes me: you're falling from "a height" above the tallest building in your town, and "partway" down is the flagpole. I signed in to post the same mistake. Randall uses "half-way," when the question gives the non-specific distance "partway.&q...

Re: 1275: "int(pi)"

I miss the intelligent, clever humor that didn't involve an applied mathematics focus or programming specialty to understand :( I mean, I'm not making any suggestions. Just throwing my feelings out there. It's your comics, there are plenty of programmers and engineers who get your jokes, I'm not try...

In general, not that I'm as depressing as she is, but I'm definitely the Nihilist.

Re: 1142: "Coverage"

What the hell is a "resonant tunneling diode" ? Look, as much as I hate to do this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=resonant+tunneling+diode The first thing that pops up is a wikipedia entry that says, "A Resonant-tunneling diode (RTD) is a diode with a resonant-tunneling structure.." So, ...

Re: 0954: "Chin-Up Bar"

Oh. My. God. I laughed so hard I fucking peed a little.

The fourth panel makes it that much more priceless, to hell with the naysayers! That was TOTALLY unexpected.
