What's your favorite xkcd?

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

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.

Question is - how to stop not making Earth spinning faster again.

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.

Some of those are pretty funny actually. I must admit however I was in the same 'wtf boat' as Danger before when there was no link... guess I live under a rock too huh? :cry:

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.

I don't get it.

A man with one hat stumbles across a man with 2 hats. They stare at each other....They stare some more. The man with 1 hat slowly backs away.


Brilliant!

PS: Do you own a hamster? And moreover, do you love it? (trying to decipher your screen name :smile:)
