This may, in fact, be the purpose of the Internet
I must agree with Cory Doctorow, This may, in fact, be the purpose of the Internet. My all-time favorite xkcd is Chess Photo. As Cory puts it: "The gag is that a prankster is gluing down his chess-pieces so that he can get on a roller-coaster, sit in the front seat, and be photographed deep in concentration over a gnarly chess-problem while behind him the rest of the coaster's riders go berserk. Now xkcd fans are submitting photos of themselves doing just this (pictured here, "Jared Meadows and Renea Campbell at King's Dominion") -- including one incredible shot of an Army captain in full camou on a military helicopter."
