The Ultimate Outreach Question: What If


What If, Randall Monroe

What If, Randall Monroe

If you have not come across XKCD yet, I envy and pity you. Pity, because you have been missing out, and envy, because you will get to see it all for the very first time. XKCD is in the Spirit of the Pulitzer prize winning book Godel, Escher, Bach, but more of a stick man version thereof. The author of XKCD, Randall Monroe, is releasing a book, “What If” that takes his format into the realm of stupid questions – the best kind – to find some surprising answers. Curiosity is not smart, curiosity is curiosity. It kills cats, it causes nuclear cold-wars and internets, and helps you pop bubble wrap with rolly chairs in the office. What If doesn’t even exist yet, but what if it did? (i.e. it’s on preorder) I hope they can print enough DRM’s e-book editions.
