    Just wondering if anyone here at TF2M reads xkcd. For those of you who don't, it's "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language - By Randall Munroe" Most of the comics are math- and computer- oriented, but they're usually written in such a way that even I can understand them :p New comics are released every Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Hope I can get you to start reading it, xkcd is hilarious :)

    For even longer.
    A while ago I printed out this and got it tacked up on all the school staffrooms and around computer rooms, too.
    Also, I get the feeling I'm the only one who gets the jokes about Kepler (barely) and matrices, and SQL injection (bobby tables, anyone)?

    So yea, you cannot get all the jokes without being a nerd. That Is an absolute.
    In fact, if you are a nerd, and you get all the jokes, your friends at D&D club will probably shun you for being too nerdy.

    I get almost everything, the only problem for me is the stuff with the movie/music references.

    You come to an internet community and expect not many to?

    Of course.

    Even though the humor sometimes flies straight over my head (sorry, I don't study physics >_>) I still have it as an RSS. It's quite awesome.

    Neither do I, I still have enough general knowledge to get most of the jokes, though.
    Next year I'm studying physics anyways.
