Review - Controls are a little hard to figure out. - Wed, 21 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2192/

Conference Question - I also have an utterance. Less of an utterance and more of an incantation. Less of an incantation and more of a malediction. Less of a malediction and more of a Word of Power. Less of a Word of Power and more of an Unforgivable Curse. - Mon, 19 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2191/

Serena Versus the Drones - After the test, she said that if she had a choice, she wouldn’t defend herself against drones using a tennis ball and racket, though she would absolutely pick them over other sports equipment. But, she added, "Drones don't bother me." - Fri, 16 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2190/

Old Game Worlds - Ok, how many coins for a cinnamon roll? - Wed, 14 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2189/

E Scooters - Obviously battery technology and prices have driven a lot of the scooter explosion, but I feel like Dean Kamen must be at least a little grumpy about how much people laughed at the idea of the Segway. - Mon, 12 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2188/

Geologic Time - Ok, well, we'll be sure to pay you sometime soon, geologically speaking. - Fri, 09 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2187/

Dark Matter - To detect dark matter, we just need to build a bird feeder that spins two squirrels around the rim in opposite directions at relativistic speeds and collides them together. - Wed, 07 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2186/

Disappearing Sunday Update - This comic won't exist in the archives. NOTHING IS REAL. - Sun, 04 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2185/

Unpopular Opinions - I wasn't a big fan of 3 or Salvation, so I'm trying to resist getting my hopes up too much for Dark Fate, but it's hard. I'm just a sucker for humans and robots traveling through time to try to drive trucks into each other, apparently. - Fri, 02 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2184/

Icon Swap - Someone's probably working on an eBook app where, if you stop reading right before some plot twist happens, the app will wait a while and then send you a breaking news alert about what's happening, prompting you to open it and read the next few pages to learn more. - Wed, 31 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2183/

When I'm Back at a Keyboard - [after typing 1,500 words on feathered dinosaurs, paleontology, sexism, lava, and dinosaurs as animals rather than movie monsters] Sorry to cut it short, I'm on my phone. When I'm back at a keyboard, I can give you another 5,000 words. - Mon, 29 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2182/

Spreadsheets - My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things. - Wed, 24 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2180/

NWS Warnings - Kind of rude of them to simultaneously issue an EVACUATION - IMMEDIATE alert, a SHELTER IN PLACE alert, and a 911 TELEPHONE OUTAGE alert. - Mon, 22 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2179/

Gastroenterology - "Mostly it means that I'm acutely aware that the kid one table over coughed as the server walked past with our food." - Wed, 17 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2177/

How Hacking Works - If only somebody had warned them that the world would roll them like this. - Mon, 15 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2176/

Flag Interpretation - When Salvador Dalí died, it took months to get all the flagpoles sufficiently melted. - Fri, 12 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2175/

First News Memory - Psychology researchers say our 'flashbulb' memories of big events can be unreliable, but I clearly remember watching live on CNN as Challenger crashed into and destroyed the Berlin Wall. - Wed, 10 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2174/
