Talk:1067: Pressures

Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

I think the alt-text is a play on words, where you have someone wearing "patent" shoes working on the movie "clerks II". So "patent" "clerk" if you will. Which is why everyone is surprised because they were looking for "patent clerks" with brilliant ideas, not someone wearing "patent" shoes working on a movie called "clerks..." It also seems to be sort of a jab at the absurdity of assuming there is something special about a "patent clerk". Like is it the job that is important? Just the name? 23:51, 20 September 2012 (UTC)Someone who should be working. (TJ)

"Much of" Einstein's patent work revolved around those arcane topics? Sounds like revisionist bullsh*t to me.
