By Randall Munroe from XKCD:

For the final exam, you take a screenshot showing off all the work you've done in the class, and it has to survive being uploaded, thumbnailed, and re-screenshotted through a chain of social media sites.

Communicating

4th of July

By Randall Munroe from XKCD:

Strangely, they still celebrate by eating hot dogs. Since they don't have mouths, they just kinda toss them in the air and let them fall back down into their propeller blades. It's pretty messy.

Magnetohydrodynamics
Posted by News Fetcher on June 15 '17 at 09:01 PM

Decades
Posted by News Fetcher on June 12 '17 at 07:20 AM
By Randall Munroe from XKCD:

I figured they'd change again in 2010, but it's 2017 and they're still saying "80s, 90s, and today." I hope radio survives long enough for us to find out how they deal with the 2020s.
