I don't read backwards

I really like xkcd, the online comic strip. So, here are a couple of xkcd posts that I like. Each image is a link to the original post, which contains captions.

I feel like this every time I walk into a store and the sign on the automation door says "Automatic Caution Door"

I'm supposed to read it as "Caution: Automatic Door," but that's NOT what it says! You read left to right, top to bottom. Jerks.

I've recently converted my brother to using Python at work. He loves it. He's a pretty hardcore low level C programmer normally, but Python really hits the spot for a lot of the processing tasks that he needs to do. Plus, ANTIGRAVITY!

I like this one because it reminds me that no matter how well I think I've written a piece of software, someone always comes up with a way to break it that I couldn't even dream of.

I was a band geek in high school and I still walk in time to the music when I'm in a store. Sue me.

For all those who are still kids at heart.

I do something like this once or twice a day. Save the world with regular expressions that is.

I had a high school physics teacher who used to harp on this all the time.

So there you have it, a few of my favorite xkcd's. I don't recommend going to the site if you have important, or even semi-important things to do. I usually get sucked in pressing the "Random" link for about thirty minutes at a time. Enjoy.
