  1. And the theme of the future affecting the past shows up in a number of C&H comics…coincidence? Too bad I’m too lazy to dig any of them up.

  2. ” Todays comic reminds me of that Val Kilmer movie Real Genius. You know, where they build the laser and the government takes it. Anyway, there is a scene near the beginning of the movie where Val?s character is remotely controlling a flying gyroscope, and ever since then, I have wondered if it was possible to make a gyroscope that flies. o they normally, or is t a product of various fictions? ”

    it was just a circle shaped gas powered RC airplane, make one yo self!

  3. I had no idea there was a need for guitar-in-shower photos. That being said, you did a great job. They are fun and tasteful (but, you are correct, not appropriate for the office).

  4. Since it’s still a topic, I just have to say that the Cuddle Mattress wouldn’t work. Your shoulder is at the top of your side; if your arm’s hanging free, then you’re supporting your body with your neck. Think about it: stick your arm and and imagine you’re laying down; which two areas are going to have the weight?

    What we need is a mattress with a trench cut out of it that one can lay over with their arm in, but that lets their arm still support their weight.

  5. @Byron
    If your neck lies lower than your torso when you are horizontal, then you have some severe issues with your rib-cage.

    Latest comic: female housewife BPS?

  6. can you fill me in on some of the history of this thing?
    maybe blog it? I’m new to your site.
    from what i could gather this is from an old ask.com advertisement?:

    We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves.
    The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.
    This is not the algorithm. This is close.

  7. @Dobber__ WTFMATE
    @Randall M.__You (and your assistants) are amazing! I respect you (pl.)!

    @Everyone else__I don’t know the point of this reply. I just wanted to make it.

  8. Just got back from a little conference that included Don Knuth (a hero of mine), so was gut-busted laughing at the latest (http://www.xkcd.com/342/). Thanks. I only hope that Don is alive when my daughter is of an appropriate age.

  9. You’re very much into Kill Bill, aren’t you?! ’cause I have seen the movie and liked it too, and looking at he comics you draw, I come to conclusion that you’re using references to it ;)

  10. Hey, “our lowerbound here is O(n log n)” doesn’t make much sense!

    You should use big Omega instead: “our lowerbound here is \Omega(n log n)”

    :)

  11. I very much like the latest comic, but are you sure you didn’t mean “like ringing a bell” instead of “like a ring in a bell”?

  12. Is there a reason Stallman looks like Musashi? If the beard and long hair weren’t enough, he has two katanas in Musashi’s sword style…

  13. I just wish I didn’t have to mod firefox every time I wanted it to properly display the mouse-over title text of each comic. Well, that or right click, properties.

  14. hmmm. what if we got a video of some good looking naked chick actually playing a guitar in a running shower. too much to ask for?

  15. This is a little random, but in the 1337 series, is Elaine’s first name “Help I’m stuck in a Driver’s License Factory?”

  16. @Christian:
    Actually, Rule 36 reads “No matter what it is, it is somebody’s fetish. No exceptions.”

  17. @Astorite the extension i use for that is IE_tab.

    I ONLY use it for XKCD.
    It was also the sole reason i got the extension.
    This of course assumes you’re on a windows machine, which I think is required.

  18. Amazing, you made it. I am laughing sooo hard, that was amazing,

    i’ll try the “stop time” photography and see what i can do with my girlfriend =D

    yes

  21. Hey, I’m pretty sure I know the person at the top. I still haven’t achieved my own internet fame, but now I can be internet famous vicariously!

  22. Just another proof of Rule 34:
