Regular readers know that xkcd is may favorite comic. It's reliably both intellegent and funny. Today's comic, however, is also a little heartbreaking.


  1. That's too sad.

    It didn't survive very long on the air; Amy believes that it was ineffective, because too many people felt bad for the lamp.
