Overstimulated is the 602nd xkcd comic.


This comic depicts an introvert at a party who zones out and begins thinking, because he finds the conversation overstimulating. After others notice and interrupt the thought, he remarks that he is tired. The others respond, indicating they think the weariness comes from working on papers, and see the party as relaxing, revealing they do not realize the reverse is true.

Mouseover textEdit

"My favorite thing to do at parties is to talk judgementally about people who aren't there."
