If you don’t follow the xkcd.com comic and you have nerdish tendencies then you are really missing out. The author, Randall Munroe, is a former NASA physicist who has a wicked sense of humor and an amazing way of condensing complicated information into graphic form. Mr. Munroe started a new feature this month called What If? where each Tuesday he tries to answer a hypothetical question.
In honor of Tuesdays Major League Baseball All-Star game, he answers the question, “What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?” Not only is it informative but his last line left me laughing so hard I cried. Go read it now.
