Randall Munroe is a Geek God

In case you don't recognize the name, Randall Munroe is the artist behind xkcd, the coolest webcomic on the planet. He's also a math and science geek extraordinaire and an all-around very funny guy, as evidenced by both his comic and his public speaking engagements.

It would appear that his math-fu and humor extend to more mundane aspects of his life, like paying his Verizon bill:


I stumbled across the image purely by accident, and only later noticed the name on the check.

Last week a different Randall pointed me to a talk he gave at Google last December. Hilarity ensued:

It's about an hour long but very entertaining, especially if you're familiar with the comic. He talks about the comic, using math to assist in public urination, programming, and of course, how to defend oneself against a surprise velociraptor attack. Enjoy!

(And thanks to OtherRandall for the link!)
