Do you want to know how to go to space? But is the technical explanation way too complicated for you and all those terms and laws of physics and complicated math just too damn confusing? Don’t worry! This truly hilarious video from MinutePhysics and XKCD will explain how to get to space using only the 1000 most…
Presumably someone at Google is making sure that the car knows its driver is actually a human, rather than a rock. Or a particularly large cat.
Those of you stuck in the arctic wasteland that is the East Coast and parts of the Mid-West right now have probably had a few hypothermia-induced fantasies about how to clear out the snow in front of your car. However, that flamethrower rig you've been concocting won't work. Allow XKCD to explain.
Every Monday morning, I wake up, come to work, turn my computer on, and ponder the same question. "Sure, I'd like to enter the Daytona 500, but I'd want to get it over with really quickly because it's Monday and I have Things To Do.

Rain hitting your windshield can mean dicey road conditions and traffic snags. According to XKCD's What If, the force of those drops hitting your windshield can also destroy your car's windshield. Lesson learned: don't drive at speeds of Mach 1.5 in a downpour if you want your glass to survive.
It's technically impossible to map a car's worth of Lucas wiring (the smoke canister is never in the same place twice), but that hasn't stopped XKCD from trying. With this attention to detail, it's amazing the British car industry failed.
