I’ve linked to the webcomic xkcd.com in passing before, but it’s so full of science-geeky awesomeness that I thought I’d advertise it more explicitly, in case there’s anyone out there who would like it but doesn’t know about it.  Here are a couple of examples; if you like them, go there and waste an hour or two clicking “Random.”

Oh, and be sure to mouse over each comic.  There’s some extra text for each one, and often it’s the best part.  (The ones embedded in this post don’t have the extra bits; go to the web site to see them.)



And the geekiest for last:
