Hmmph! Anyone could see through that argument...

Re: 2035: "Dark Matter Candidates"

My son's theory, which I rather like, is that it's Space Vampires. We keep looking for them using the Hubble Space Telescope and the like, but they can't be seen in mirrors.

Re: 1197: "All Adobe Updates"

One of the weirdest things abote Adobe products is that you can't actually download the update. You download an updater, which then has to connect to the internet to download the update. Which sucks for systems that aren't connected online since you can't even update them via a thumbdrive or anythi...

Protip: The protips on m.xkcd.com are redundant

Protip: m.xkcd.com is a clean, mobile-friendly version of xkcd.com.
Protip: There's a new full-text comic search box a bit down the page.


The first is self-referential and the second refers to a search box that isn't present on the mobile version of the page.

If at first you don't succeed, never take up Skydiving.

Re: 0849: "Complex Conjugate"

I found this comic rather costive and the use of an expletive unnecessary. The pun is a little too obvious and the alt-text "Fun fact" is clearly an attempt at further solidifying my opinion of "Fun fact" as my favourite xkcd oxymoron.

Not one of his best I'm afraid.

Re: 0841: "Audiophiles"

As there are so many audiophiles likely to be perusing this thread I thought I'd ask this question: I have a collection of over 500 CDs that I want to back up onto my desktop. In the process of doing so I wish to create: - a disk image (iso or similar) for backup - a ~320kbps mp3 of each track - a ~...

Re: "Dependencies" discussion(#754)

Honestly! Has no-one noticed the glaring typo in the alt-text?

Alt text: "The prereqs for CPSC 357, the class on package management, are CPCS 432, CPSC 357, and glibc2.5 or later."

Where have all the pedants gone? (Long time passing...)

Re: "Computer Problems" Discussion

I think there's a stylistic reference to HHG2G in there aswell. http://www.clivebanks.co.uk/THHGTTG/THHGTTGradio12.htm The man who lives in the shack, rules the universe and talks to his friend Catherine... I'd just popped in to comment that that Cat must be called "The Lord". Great minds...

Re: "I Am" Discussion

In very poor taste, in fact unashamedly blasphemous. Bewilderingly unfunny juxtaposition.

Perhaps you'd like to follow it up with a Mohammed/Koran mocking comic - or are you afraid of a fatwa?

Re: The Father Puzzle

I don't think you're entirely right: All your answers so far about the whereabouts of the Father assume that: a) Fertilization is instantaneous. It's not. The sperm can take anywhere between 45 minutes and 2 days merely to reach the egg let alone fertilize it. The Dad could have gone around ...
