Pondering the Imponderable

I forgot to mention this last week. The comic strip FoxTrot is well known for its geek-oriented jokes, but this one from last Thursday pretty much takes the cake. I wonder how many average comics readers even had a clue what this was about.

In an unrelated story, this fortune came up when I opened up a console in Linux this morning: "There is nothing wrong with Southern California that a rise in the ocean level wouldn't cure." Amen to that.

J.t.Qbe comments: Wow! That's getting pretty esoteric for the daily comics. It's nice to see comics for the rest of us.

Somewhat less obscure but no less funny is this one: every kid's dream!

A.T. Hun comments: I know that I would play "Zombie Disembowelment Arena III."

J.t.Qbe comments: Nah, "Zombie Disembowelment Tournament 2005" is coming soon. Wait for that instead. It'll come out right around the same time as "Duke Nukem Forever".
