(Click for full size version.)

Lisp by xkcd

I got 4 hours and 20 minutes of sleep last night (give or take 5 minutes), so I’m content to sit and read the archives of xkcd all day, maybe I should say “I’m too tired to do anything else”, rather than “content to”. At any rate, I thought this comic was funny enough to [...]

This is rather funny

Perhaps it’s just the fact that it’s 3:27am, but I found this xkcd comic quite amusing. Or maybe it has nothing to do with the time and everything to do with the fact that I use that phrase quite a bit and I’m always usually up for some self-mockery, even if it’s only in my [...]
