Scientists is the 36th xkcd comic.


This comic capitalizes on the tendency of less-educated people today to characterize events with insults usually applied to people; in this case, a situation is described as "gay" though it obviously doesn't have a sexual orientation.

Mouseover textEdit

"A leading expert characterized the situation as 'retarded'"
