"Millions of people visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. His stick-figure drawings about science, technology, language, and love have a large and passionate following. Fans of xkcd ask Munroe a lot of strange questions. What if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90 percent the speed of light? How fast can you hit a speed bump while driving and live? If there was a robot apocalypse, how long would humanity last? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations, and consults with nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by signature xkcd comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion. The book features new and never-before-answered questions, along with updated and expanded versions of the most popular answers from the xkcd website. What If? will be required reading for xkcd fans and anyone who loves to ponder the hypothetical. "--… (mere)

Umanerligt underholdende bog med skøre spørgsmål og kloge svar. Forfatteren er vokset op med miles, feet og pounds og kan derfor påskønne SI-systemet i fuldt omfang.

For hvert svar kan man finde på et nyt spørgsmål. Hvorfor roterer Venus' atmosfære, når planeten står stille? Hvorfor må man ikke sælge vand fra et reaktorkølebassin som energidrik? Hvorfor var der ikke regnorme i New England for 10000 år siden? Var de store flokke af vandreduer et tegn på et økosystem i krise? Hvorfor hedder det en ås på dansk og en esker på engelsk? ( )

They say there are no stupid questions. That's obviously wrong. [...] But it turns out that trying to thoroughly answer a stupid question can take you to some pretty interesting places.
