xanadian: The fact that the words "rocket," "oxygen," and "helium" aren't in the top 1000 words used by people kind of bothers me...


Well, they're not really things we talk about on an everyday basis. That said, a world where we talk about rockets and helium every day would be awesome to live in.

Bennie Crabtree: Gawd, I still have a hard time believing XKCD is popular when it is the most obvious low-hanging fruit comic since Ziggy. I mean it's not bad but it is also not in any way unique. I guess that might be why it is popular, but that would be depressing.


Yeah, Friday's joke about traditional vs Bayes statistics was just so gauche. I mean, don't they realize that Simpsons already did it?
