內容簡介


網路漫畫網站xkcd.com的作者,要替你解答你從沒想過要問的宇宙無敵大哉問!

每週都有數百萬人造訪xkcd.com,看Randall Munroe的火柴小人談科學、科技、語言還有愛情。

火柴小人吸引無數粉絲追蹤,而粉絲總會問Munroe各式各樣奇奇怪怪的問題:要是有一顆棒球,以光速的90%投出,這時你若手握球棒想要一集中的,會發生什麼事?要是你開過路上的減速標線而不減速,最快可以開到多快又不會車毀人亡?要是機器人鬧革命,人類可以撐多久?

為了回答這些問題,Munroe跑了無數次模擬程式,家裡堆了滿坑滿谷的研究備忘筆記,不但要猛解微分方程,還得向核反應爐操作員請教。他的回應保證清楚易懂,絕對好笑幽默,當然也少不了他的招牌漫畫。

本書收入全新、從未回答過的問題,即便是在網站上發表過、最受歡迎的漫畫也經過更新擴充,讓買書的讀者不只收藏,更能看到獨家內容。不論你看過xcd.com,這麼精彩的內容,對世界充滿好奇的你怎麼可以不買一本?


From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd.com, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask.

Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions: How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living? How many humans would a T Rex rampaging through New York need to eat a day?

In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations and consults nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion.
