I struggled a little bit about if I should post this one as a UA or a TIL. It qualifies really as both if you think about it, but it really is more of the UA, because it is a website.

XKCD is an online web comic maintained by author/artist Randall Munroe. The comic is primarily stick figures, with an occasional detailed drawing. Unlike most comics, this one doesn’t really have a character theme. You aren’t going to be following situations within on story line or set by reading this. Really each comic strip stands alone and does a really good job at standing out.

Each strip might be about a number of different things. The site’s tag line “A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language” is really quite accurate. Although he left out computers, science, nostalgic references, programming, and other nerdy things to read about. The strips, according to the about page, come out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They seem to come out regularly and without fail.

My favorite is comic 157.

That really isn’t my best of reviews, but it is all I got today. Maybe I will be in a better mindset for the next one.
