Serious geek humor from xkcd. First I had to Google OEIS to find out that it stands for On-line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. Then I had to wrap my mind around the fact that there is such a thing. Then I looked at the comic again.
My favorite is definitely “All integers, in descending order”. If you don’t understand why that’s funny, you are not a geek.

Google Maps apparently has a new feature where it will recommend things in the area. I turned it on for Brooklyn and just got this recommendation. And yes, I am interested in pizza, thanks for noticing…

Yankee Aaron Judge sees a kid in the bleachers wearing his All Star jersey. So what does he do? He plays catch with the kid in between innings (letting the kid keep the ball of course).

Given how crazy the world seems these days, I’ve wondered what The Onion finds to write about. But they seem to be managing fine. Some of the tips:
Avoid unkind generalizations like equating the jailing of ethnic minorities with some malevolent form of fascism.
Recall that violently rejecting a tyrannical government goes against everything our forefathers believed in.
Make sure any protests are peaceful, silent, and completely out of sight of anyone who could actually affect government policy.
Give your political opponents the benefit of the doubt by letting this play out for 20 years and seeing if it gets any better on its own.
Avoid painting with a broad brush. Not everyone in favor of zero-tolerance immigration wants to see children in cages—it’s more likely that they just don’t care.

This so appeals to the grammar nerd in me…
Via smbc, of course.
