I've posted xkcd comics before. Creator Randall Munroe has an amazing simple style but a head for science and absurd hypothetical questions. His comic was one of the first web comics I'd ever subscribed to.
I had to share this one here as a tribute back to my recent post about my wife's 40th birthday. This recent comic reminded me of my favorite part about writing that, which was coming up with the list of crazy partnerships to compare our marriage to.
- Han Solo
- …to my Chewbacca
- …to my Westley
- …to my Penn

Anyway, do check out xkcd.com. Note that his brand of humor sometimes goes right over people's heads to some degree. Interestingly enough, there is an entire community wiki site devoted to explaining the jokes for those of
you who may not get it right away. And I mentioned it already, but if you love science and absurd hypothetical questions, be sure to subscribe to the what if site. To close, here are a few of my favorites.
- Relativistic Baseball - What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?
- Yoda - How much Force power can Yoda output?
- Raindrop - What if a rainstorm dropped all of its water in a single giant drop?
- Plastic Dinosaurs - As plastic is made from oil and oil is made from dead dinosaurs, how much actual real dinosaur is there in a plastic dinosaur?
