OK, more comics. I saw this on my RSS feeds, which really says it all.



Powers of One

Hey folks, Sam dug up this awesome cartoon, entitled Powers of One, from the xkcd.com site:

Powers of One
If you’ve never seen the original video, drop whatever you’re doing and hit the play button below immediately!

The Power of Ten
I’ve always loved this awe-instilling little video and its continued to inspire me for many years! To read up a little about the history of this film, check out the Wikipedia page:

Powers of Ten is a 1977 short documentary film written and directed by Charles Eames and his wife, Ray. The film depicts the relative scale of the Universe in factors of ten (see also logarithmic scale and order of magnitude). The idea for the film appears to have come from the 1957 book Cosmic View by Kees Boeke.

Relatively Awful

Let’s find the most poopy cartoon involving Einstein. Get a wiff of Figure 1 for some truely poopy cartoonin’.

Figure 1. Look at me.

What is wrong with Einstein’s arms? Is he wearing a burlap sack? Is that a chalkboard? I don’t even want to start, baby, with the dialog.

So, the challenge is to find a worse cartoon. My numbers suggest at least 10^3 terrible Einstiens out there. Find them and post them. If you’re not a member, place the link in the comment section, and I’ll make Kendall post it for you. Happy hunting and godspeed.
