fun comic strip

I’m not a big comic strip reader. Though I have been getting into more of routine to read the funnies now that I eat breakfast each morning. Anyways, I found a nice comic. It’s over at by Randall Monroe, a NASA roboticist. He describes it as “a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.” I see it more as a comic for geeks.

I even like the ones that are about math. I don’t get them, but I pretend to get them cuz it makes me feel all smart and stuff. Some are just cultural observations. And some are just plain fun like the toon used for this blog entry. I could do without the comics that have little hearts in them and the ones that talk about journeys and setting suns. They probably account for no more than 10% of the strips.

He also sells t-shirts. I like the green shirt that starts off with “SCIENCE”. (I don’t want to share the rest of the saying now. You’ll have to check it out. It’s vulgar, but funny.)

I even used to try to sneak by the sensors and get to the door without activating it. All these things just seem mean now.… Read more »
