XKCD Web Comic #998: 2012 (described)

A webcomic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.


Panel One: Drawing of two stick figures talking to each other. The one on the left has long, dark hair.

First person: Well, it’s 2012.

Second Panel: Same scene

Second person: Yup.–Only 354 days until everybody abruptly stops talking about Mayans.

Third Panel: Same scene

First person: Or thinking Mayans.–Or acknowledging that huge city-building ancient American civilizations existed at all.

Second person: You know whawt they say-those who fail to learn from history can still manage a 3.0 if they ace their other subjects.

Hover text: To compensate for this, I plan to spend 2013 doing nothing but talking about Mayans. My relationships with my friends and family may not fare well.


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).
