    What's your favorite xkcd?

    Inspired by Galteeth's thread, "What's the email for the president of physics?"


    You can find xkcd here

    Angular momentum:

    Varying this makes a great pick up line, as well. I have a 100% success rate with it. (1 for 1 is 100%)

    The Difference

    I have this on my door. PS. Galeeth and I had same idea. His thread: [thread=363561]What's the email for the president of physics?[/thread]. My thread: [thread=363183]xkcd provides some visual PF guidelines[/thread].

    PPS. We should send Randall Munroe a bonus membership in PF. Searching for xkcd turns up 263 PF posts.

    I've added a link to the main xkcd page into the opening post, for maximal compliance with the license.

    Thanks, Borek. I notice that Hurkyl added a link in the OP that wasn't there when I first read it. Now I know what it is, but the humour eludes me. Must be some kind of tech stuff that I haven't been exposed to before.

    When viewed from the original site, each comic has a second hidden joke or punchline that is exposed with a mouse-over.

    I want to get the T-shirt of this one and wear it at school.

    ...but I could get in a bit of trouble.
