If you’re not familiar with “xkcd”, then drop what you’re doing and check it out (but in a new browser window, ok??)
This one is an all-time favorite: http://xkcd.com/730
It’s been around for a while, but every time I stumble upon it, I have to stop and take it all in again. It’s chock-full of deep, seasoned, nerd humor. “Bury deep, but not too deep.” “Omit this if you’re a whimp.” “Ardruino for blog cred.” Oy. A tough act to follow.
PS (2021): And if you need help appreciating it, try this.
