We can't go around linking to xkcd all the time or it would just fill up the blog, but this one is absolutely brilliant. You could use it as the basis for a statistics Ph.D. I came across it in this post from Palko, which is on the topic of that Dow 36,000 guy who keeps falling up and up. But that's another story, related to the idea, which we've discussed many times, that Gresham's. Tug-of-war, a simple game in which two teams try to pull a rope in opposite directions, has a surprisingly bloody history.

Thinking along the same line as some of the other answers, I've un-ggplotted the chart and also added on the flexibility of the x-axis label locations (which seems to be common in xkcd) and an arbitrary label on the chart XKCD, the sarcastic webcomic revered by science and tech geeks, is now the butt of someone else's joke.

Cull) AI. guys this is awesome: everyone's best friend, commenter ch00f, has gone and made an xkcd font. And it's really good. It's called Humor-sans which is brilliant for oh so many reasons. It was made with characters from the comics, and since xkcd is all caps, the font is all caps and lower case letters just type in a different version of the upper-case letter, so it looks a little more varied. His program is basically taking the XKCD cartoon and laying new captions over it. Re: (Score: 2) by Darinbob. It's funny, but it does not have some grand meaning behind it. It's become fodder for the modern anti-science and anti-academic attitudes. Re: (Score: 2) by shanen. I rather doubt that the anti-science crowd reads XKCD. The Atlantic story certainly portrayed it as scientists willing to.

The xkcd colors come from a user survey conducted by the webcomic xkcd. 95 out of the 148 X11/CSS4 color names also appear in the xkcd color survey. Almost all of them map to different color values in the X11/CSS4 and in the xkcd palette. Only 'black', 'white' and 'cyan' are identical.

You probably saw this XKCD last week, which brought a grimace of recognition to statisticians everywhere: It's so realistic, that Barry Rowlingson was able to reproduce all but two of the charts above with a simple R function (and a little help from the xkcd ggplot2 theme): And now for @revodavid et al, with the. Within the XKCD world, it's a secret code for bypassing unhelpful tech support. When you seem to know more about computers than the professional tasked with helping you, just mention this pass. Indeed not all xkcd's are even intended to be actually funny. Many do, however make important points in a way that's thought provoking, and at least sometimes they're amusing while doing that. (I personally find it funny, but I find it hard to clearly explain what, exactly, makes it funny to me. I think partly it's the recognition of the way that a doubtful, or even dubious result turns into a.
And XKCD sucks. I shall adapt a Daniel Tosh quote: [XKDC] sucks. If that upsets anybody in here, you're the problem in our country; because somebody had a difference of an opinion than you, you felt personally attacked instead of focusing on a bigger issue: why do you [read shiatty webcomics]?

This is one of two Randall Munroe books I've read, and it is (by design) the funnier of the pair. It's a collection of posts from his blog XKCD, which is made up of cartoons he draws making fun of things—mostly scientists and computers, but lots of other things too.There's one about scientists holding a press conference to reveal their discovery that life is arsenic-based Roc-draft-xkcd-style.svg.

The diagonal shows the performance of a random classifier. Three example classifiers (blue, orange, green) are shown I started by simply coding up requirements for numerical functions (in the form of test cases), then set up a PHP script that would Google each function based on the keywords in my comments, and try to run any code on the resulting links (in a sandbox) against the requirements, seeing if it worked heuristically. Usually one of the top 5-10 pages of results results would have code that worked. Xkcd has answered that question too!

I'm a fan of XKCD's sketchy graphics (and his interesting data collection using systematic searches), but in this case particularly I think it would be better as clean typeface. I want to see some of the subtle distinctions, but I have trouble making comparisons because of the sketchiness of the font. Phillip — November 28, 2012 at. XKCD is meant to entertain; sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's inspiring, once in a while it's horrifying. Every so often Randall will bat one over my head, so I go to Wikipedia and learn something I had not known before. The most important function XKCD performs is to stimulate curiosity. Along with Wikipedia there is also explainxkcd.com, which does a great job of explaining each comic in.
