Where Are You (Courtesy Xkcd)

Now, back to Nick's question.[5]This is nowhere NEAR the record for "most boring digression into world record trivia." That record was recently challenged by IBM computer capable of producing millions of boring pieces of trivia per second, but the machine narrowly lost to reigning human champion Ken Jennings.

Randall Munroe's webcomic xkcd casts an optimistic eye on the geek lifestyle. *Photo: Courtesy of Adrianne Mathiowetz * A geek with a paper cut does not bleed CH3, and every nerd has a heart lodged in his chest instead of a TI-85. Behind those thick polycarbonate lenses is a man of flesh and blood, a man who deserves to be loved. Don't believe him? He has the graphs to show it.

This visual is written using the latest version of the SDK at time of writing (3.1.5) and available for download from its GitHub repository releases page. As chart.xkcd is relatively new and undergoing active development, I'm not planning to publish this to the marketplace at this time.

Thanks, @marcorusso! I wouldn't even know where to begin in reciprocating how amazing and inspiring yourself, Alberto and Daniele have been to me in upskilling with DAX and custom visuals development, so I'll start with "thanks" back!

First i trust everyone is safe. Second its WEDNESDAY so we got us a Snake_Byte! Today i wanted to keep this simple, fun and return to a set of fun methods that are included in the defacto standard for plotting in python which is Matplotlib. The method(s) are called XKCD Style plotting via plt.xkcd().

Circuit boards can be just as puzzling. Here's one from Randall Munroe, the xkcd cartoonist who loves complexity. But notice that, while explaining its innards, Munroe sticks in an eel, a mouse and some holy water ... because he hasn't the foggiest idea how this thing works...

Who knows? It may turn out that Goldberg's animalistic machines aren't at all fanciful, but deeply prophetic. And as we enter the dawn of biomechanics, where paralyzed people are taught to "think" their robotic hands into motion, where living cells may one day power computers, we may discover that biology indeed is embedded in machinery, that it's all coming together.

Munroe now spends his days crafting jokes that riff on programming code, math equations and nerd culture, using stick figures to get his point across. The 25-year-old graduate of Chesterfield's Mathematics and Science High School at Clover Hill has spoken about xkcd at Google headquarters, as well as several national conferences and conventions, and he put out his first book, xkcd: volume 0 , in September.

The collection, which assembles more than 150 of Munroe's strips, moved 5,469 copies in its first week of release; the first printing of 10,000 has sold out as of this writing. "His book has been selling well," says Alexis Ohanian, founder of breadpig, a Web site that sells what he describes as "geeky" items, including the xkcd book, which is published through his site.

Ohanian describes Munroe's fans as "geeks," the sort of folks who gave xkcd a lot of its early exposure at another of Ohanian's creations, reddit, an online news site where readers' votes determine what goes on the front page.

"I'm lucky if I can squeeze out a decent math/physics/Internet joke once a month, and he does it every few days. He's clearly smarter than me," says Bill Amend, FoxTrot 's creator. "The fact that he thought to use stick figures and I didn't drives me insane with envy around deadlines." Amend featured xkcd in a FoxTrot installment where he fantasized about converting his own strip to a webcomic. "I've spoofed a fair number of newspaper comics over the years and thought it would be fun to do the same with some of the webcomics I enjoy," he says. "I thought my xkcd joke turned out pretty well. I'm waiting for Randall to steal it."

One of Munroe's high-school buddies, Derek Radtke, is now his business partner at xkcd , handling the technology aspect of the business out of the apartment they share in Somerville, Mass. During their high-school years, the two spent their spare time building radio-controlled submarines, none of which, according to Munroe, "worked real well."

When he entered Christopher Newport University, Munroe waffled between physics and engineering but eventually chose physics as his major. In 2005, the summer before his graduation, he accepted an internship at NASA's Langley Research Center, where he worked on a virtual-reality project. In 2006, a few months before graduation, he went back to NASA as a contractor, working on robotics. "I was learning as I went along," he says. "It wasn't something I was too into. It took me a while to realize I wasn't having a lot of fun. I was working with a lot of middle-aged engineers, and I didn't relate to them."

Munroe has known how to market xkcd from the beginning. He encouraged people to post his comics on their Web sites for free, embedding them with a link back to his own site. "That's how it spread," he says. "There are tens of thousands of Web sites that have xkcd embedded in them."
