XKCD’s “What if?” is the place for curious questions about science and computers. It’s similar fun as the Urban Dictionary (“Friendscaping” – The act of trimming ones friends lists in various social media sites), but as enlightening as Wikipedia. It’s any geek’s favourite hang-out and no question is too stupid to deserve a dead serious answer. Like this one: When – if ever – will the bandwidth of the Internet surpass that of FedEx? The answer may be surprising!
