The wonderful world of XKCD, and of internet generally.

"I am not a ninja"
I thought I'd introduce anyone who doesn't know of it to the wonderful world of XKCD ( All by a random guy who one day started posting math comics and now has a huge following and tshirts and other things. Proof that Illustation can come from and go in the strangest places....

Also a wee note here about the odd workings of the universe (and the internet)... 8 or 9 years ago, maybe more, I had a pen pal in Italy. I can barely even remember it. So anyway, we lost contact all those years ago, and today I got a facebook message from him. Something to the effect of: "Remember me? We were pen pals. My english isn't as good as it used to be, but I'm studying electronic engineering in Italy. Oh I don't play soccer anymore."
The world is a very small place, and made very, very, very weird by modern life and internet.
On that note, I'll leave you with an appropriate xkcd comic on the subject...
