XKCD Web Comic #1048: Emotions (described)

A web comic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.



Scene: A graph chart titled “Causes of My Emotions, by Year:

The time line runs from 2006 to 2012. Uneven strips of color run along the time line layers. The top layer, Politics, is blue, Romance is next and is pink. Tucked in between “Code Not Working Even Though It Should Work” and “People Being Wrong on the Internet” is “Joss Whedon” in purple, but that layer ends mid-2007. The bottom layer, in light turquoise is “Other.” Just past mid-2010, all the layers abruptly get squished upward into very narrow-to-non-existent layers as they run into a huge, thick layer labeled “Cancer.”  “Romance,” running across the top of the “Cancer” layer, seems to be the only survivor and it is joined by a layer labeled “? ?” as the “Cancer” layer begins to become a little  smaller and a little smaller past mid-2011.

Hover text:  Fortunately, the internet has a virtually inexhaustible supply of code that doesn’t work and people who are wrong, which bodes well for a return to normalcy. [Note: Click to read context for the cancer comics. She's doing well.]
