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

This week: How long would humans last in a robot apocalypse?
(BG note: Jumping numerical order for timeliness.)
Scene:  Silhouette of Curiosity dangling from the sky crane over the Martian landscape.
Caption
Your excuse for anything today:
“Sorry–
I was up all night trying to download photos to download photos taken by a robot lowered onto Mars by a sky cane.

 

Hover text: As of this writing the NASA/JPL websites are still overloaded. Trying CURIOSITY-REAR-CAM_[256px_x_256px].torrent.SwEsUb.DVDRip.XviD-aXXo.jpg instead.
Warning: This comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).
