I’m writing a post mostly out of guilt today. My site has been untouched for far too long, and lately it’s been pulling in a lot of views. That makes me feel like a horrible person.
So, I’ve been thinking about sharing this little something for a few days anyhow, and today I decided to just do it.
A while ago I happened upon and fell in love with the wonderful world of xkcd. If you’ve found your way to my blog and have yet to check out his webcomic, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Anyhow, xkcd’s creator has done many fabulous comics that I love, but I recently discovered a fun video based on one of his comics that I wanted to share with you.
First, here’s the comic (titled “xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel”):
(Click the image to view it full size on the xkcd site.)
Next, here’s a video to explain the cartoon’s connection to the Discovery Channel:
Also, check out this other Discovery Channel video.
Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the new video I found!
(Note: The Vimeo player is great, and it’s one of my favorites, but on many browsers it plays a lot smoother if you let the whole video load before you play. To do this, press play, then pause as soon as you see it begin to load the video. Once the seek bar is full of solid grey, it is safe to play!)
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I hope you thought it was as cute as I did.
