One For The Bookmarks
I've stumbled on to the webcomic xkcd many times before and have always had a laugh but for some reason never thought to read it regularly. I recently landed there again having followed a link from Kara's blog and this time I took the time to poke around (and by "poke around" I mean repeatedly clicking the "random" button). And the dude is funny...as many people have already discovered. "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language," xkcd is created by Randall Muroe, former roboticist for NASA. He now writes xkcd full time supporting himself on the sales of his webcomic merchandise on his online store. Man this guy is seriously multi-talented. Also check out the Life Imitates xkcd section in the Wikipedia entry for a list of instances where people have actually carried out some of Munroe's comics in real life. He's that good.
