Here's a few of my favorites, not in any particular order:

http://xkcd.com/898/

http://xkcd.com/227/

https://xkcd.com/567/

https://xkcd.com/730/

There's really nothing else quite like XKCD.

@Duane: Here's a few of my favorites, not in any particular order...

What can I say -- I love all of these -- I really like 898 -- and 730 is the way non-engineers see real circuit diagrams LOL

@Duane - The circuit diagram one is my favourite - I pointed it out to Max a couple of weeks ago.

I LOVE XKCD - you just keep clicking the random button and after half an hour your bad mood is gone......

One that I especially like is Tech Support Cheat Sheet. Some people do seem to think that just because one has basic problem solving skills and exploits the reversibility of most actions that one is a computer expert.

Do you mean your wife gets bored and wanders off?

I LOVE it -- now I come to think about it -- the Google thing is just what our system manager seems to do ...

Now honestly, what self respecting programmer writes code like that?? That's almost sillier than not checking whether you've reached the end of your buffer.

To the best of my knowledge, my wife hasn't actually read any of my columns, which says something for her lack of interest in (a) technology or (b) me ... I prefer to think it's (a) LOL

Perhaps she thinks it's better not to know.  As the saying goes, "when ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise".  Or maybe she's looked under too many rocks in her life and found all sorts of disgusting things, so has learned not to look under rocks.

I once read an interesting novel called Rue des Boutiques Obscures [The Street with the Dark Shops, by Patrick Modiano] about a man with amnesia who by happenstance gets a clue as to who he really is.  For the rest of the book he tracks himself down, and discovers something so heartbreaking that it would have been better if he had never known.
