Long Awaited Humor, Courtesy Of Someone Else

Apparently, if I want to follow the career I plan to (geek), I'm pretty much required to read xkcd, so I did. I must say, I was disappointed by his emo drivel, at least until I found pretty much the best Matrix reference ever. Also, I respect his healthy wariness of velociraptors.

This "Munroe" character managed to get pretty much all my heart-strings, from the criminally untapped combination of Bond and physics to one of my favorite hobbies. He also conceived of a way to scare of a girl while simultaneously convincing me, through his clever OCD-themed humor, to replace and exceed any sex lost by scaring off said girl.

By the way, NP completely-gotcha bitch.

Some days I love xkcd (Those being the scifi/video game references), and some days I hate it because it just makes me feel stupid. At which point I go and read explosm.

Excellent retro music selection.

xkcd is life. Now, to build that robot in a hamster ball...

By the way, anyone know of a good LAN party? I've got some formal attire, and I'd really like to fine one.

Juicy, I can't exactly claim credit for the music selection...

...did you black out or something during that particular part of the posting process?

Not exactly. Find a geek, ask them why "rick rolling" is a verb.

...this what you had in mind?
