A great addition to my favorite science humor website…

So if you are unaware of the wonderful webcomic known as xkcd, you no longer have an excuse. The drawings are simple, really funny, and really smart with a scientist’s sense of humor (Randall Monroe – the artist – was a NASA roboticist and programmer before starting the website). As a side note, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is another great science-based webcomic or the YouTube channel minutephysics if you need to see things moving…

A typical xkcd webcomic…

ANYWAY, several weeks ago xkcd started posting a “What If” comic every Tuesday. They are truly awesome. They describe real world projections of what would happen in a hypothetical situation. For example, my favorite one so far is What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light? You should check it out.
