Fuck this I’m done.
There is a graph. On the X axis is sex, on the Y is computer.
Fuck this I’m done.
Here’s a Computer Science geek-recognition comic strip for that particular sub-set of readers.
By disproving basic logic, the building block of many core concepts in Computer Science, the highly talented female in this strip is able to discover numerous errors in Donald E. Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming. Knuth offers a reward of $2.56 for each error found in his book, which would entitle the female to a large quantity of money.
There is not a joke here, just a reference to a piece of pop-geek-culture that will make a small set of people feel some amount of self worth.
A graph and common scientific knowledge are used to describe a standard pastime for people who sit in front of a keyboard for a majority of their day.
This comic is meant to make alone people feel like they are a part of something larger then themselves. It is meant to give them a brief sense of fulfillment before they die.
Today is the day the Author finally discovered a metaphor that perfectly combines his two greatest passions in life: technology and unidirectional relationships wherein a female is able to completely dominate him emotionally. That metaphor is the diode - a device which only allows current (or emotional subservience) to flow in one direction (from male to female).
An unnecessary single-axis chart is used to make five geek and/or child-nostalgia references into faux clichéd movie one-liners for use as a comic strip on the internet.
Some may find themselves wondering: is there a legal way to commit suicide?
Two people attempt to break glass by sining a high-pitch tone. Instead, wackily, the glass fills with blood. An anthropomorphized “Physics” then admits she is attempting to stop humans from finding the Higgs Boson - a particle whose discovery would explain much of the inexplicable aspects of modern physics.
This comic serves only as a medium to make a reference to a pop-culture physics concept.
A man and a female enjoy the night’s stars together. They discuss a scientific fact about starlight, then the man then fetches a mirror and holds it up above him. He did this because he naively believes that the light of the stars will bounce back to their homes, which would make him feel less guilty about being alive.
Later she will probably talk about astronomy while he does oral sex on her.
Note: this comic is only relevant to those who spend a majority of their time on social news websites such as reddit.com.
The Author is proposing a new system for detecting and blocking automated form submissions, also known as a captcha. These systems typically test the submitter for human qualities and abilities such as being able to read distorted text or pick an object from a series of images. These tests are easy for humans, but hard for a computer. In the Author’s system, the test is to compose an internet comment that is constructive and positive. The end result of this, the Author hopes, is to force those that create and operate the bots to give them the ability to generate nice, helpful comments.
The more astute Reader will realize the true meaning of today’s comic: the Author is using his vast influence to encourage smart engineers around the world to create computer software that will talk nicely to him.
For those of you who are unaware of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (possibly due to a lack of feigned-interest in the sciences), it is a very large, multidisciplinary technology and science research center in New Mexico.
The Author is telling a joke about a man who works in Los Alamos and is also not very good at science. The man is making grandiose, possibly devastating plans when it is revealed that he does not have knowledge of the most basic trigonometry (a mnemonic for remembering the properties of a triangle).
In humor, this device is called “absurdism” and can sometimes make people laugh.
The point of this web comic strip is to compare relativity and quantum electrodynamics with a series of “crazy phenomenons” in an by the Author to further state his belief that science is magical. This is a common theme, and will not surprise anyone.
If the Author had a more fitting, long-form venue by which to state his opinions he would do so. But, as it turns out, he only has this web comic. For this reason (and this reason alone) he is forced to fabricate a hand-drawn “info-graphic” or set of tabular data by which to make his voice heard.
The poor Author weeps alone tonight.
