A couple of weeks ago i read the whole xkcd back catalog over a few days. A lot of laughs and insights. And since then most of the new strips don’t seem so funny anymore.
When we are victorious on a world scale I think we shall use gold for the purpose of building public lavatories in the streets of some of the largest cities of the world.

In the summer grown-up people sometimes bring their children to work, and they do stuff. For example, improve the boring whiteboard, Daniel Johnston-style.
An open letter to Amazon.com:
I’ve been shopping with Amazon.com since about 2002 and now i suddenly see that my order history and wish list are completely gone. My order history is empty and my wish list, which used to have about 20 pages of CD’s and books that i planned to buy now only has 3 CD’s that i added to it today. (Dengue Fever, a superb band i discovered today.)
Can you please restore it? I guess that i can live without the history of spending my hard-earned money, but that wish list was a work of art on which i worked for years and i am shocked to see it disappearing into the limbo without any warning.
