Goddammit. I keep making the topic first, but forgetting to write in the title.

Oh well.

I'm pretty sure this is NSFW.

Megan is such the showgirl... 8)

Also, I was wondering something along the same lines just yesterday.. all those pictures related to flexor tendon shealth cysts....

edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganglion_cyst

The description image could totally have been shot inside a Sizzlers.



Hi joee. Wanna go to TGIF's? I'll bring the camera ;)

What? Drawings that aren't just sticks on xkcd? An xkcd strip that is NSFW? What is the world coming to? I'm surprised because xkcd is where I want to go when I don't want to see anatomically correct images.

Once upon a time, I very nearly asked Jeph Jacques why he censors actual nudity in his comic but still puts doodles of penises on the coffee shop blackboard. Given that the one is no less just a drawing than the other. This strip almost seems like the sort of thing someone would produce after having just reached that same conclusion. And wanted to hang a lampshade on it.

I actually looked(after reading the comic), and xkcd is extremely correct... I also learned more than I need to know about a lot of things(yes, I read the text and looked at the pictures.. I mean cmon, it is still wikipedia.. I even went 3 links deep until I started feeling weird..)

I noticed that too. I thought maybe someone on Digg had linked to it or something. Then I remembered, this is XKCD. If anything, it could bring Digg down by linking to it.

Did anyone else see, earlier tonight, the message on the top of the page which said something like, "The strip might be a little late while I double check the math. Sorry."? Is double checking math a new euphemism for double checking female privates? If so, I might have to use it as a pickup line.

My friend was running a Wikipedia Breast Enhancement project for a while. The rules were simple:

* if the image was primarily of a female breast, replace it with a similar image containing a larger breast.
* if the image contained a breast, photoshop it to be larger.

The project failed...the wikipedians caught on to us and there was also a bit too much, er, distraction.

I do believe we have here a return to form for Randall. I wonder how the haters will try to justify their feelings now.
"I got fired for looking at this at work today, I hope you're happy!"
"How DARE you distribute this filth!"
"You drew the labia minora/areola/something wrong, you hack!" (Labia is in spellcheck but not minora or areola? Huh.)
"Wheres the tripod, huh?"
... Okay, I'll stop now.

And who among those that have been under age 15 in the last 5 years hasn't visited Wikipedia for their jollies? It's this generations National Geographic!

This comic reminded me of a question I had forgotten about until recently.

Everybody accepts that all else being equal, taller fathers have taller daughters and fatter mothers have fatter sons, etc.

But what about genitalia? Does a father with a big penis have a daughter with a big vaginal cavity or is it "tighter" because there are bigger labia? Same question applies in reverse for mothers and their sons.



....yes, I registered to ask that question.

Yeah, I know. I remember people being disgusted on the forums when http://xkcd.com/400/ came out, too. And 136 does show the same thing, but as a tiny image, not this up-in-your-face.

I don't have a problem with it, I just sort of did a double-take and went "Did my link screw up?" when I saw what was on my screen.
It would also help if I understood the joke in this comic. :P
