Randall Munroe has an interesting superpower — things that he casually includes in his webcomic come true. Sometimes it’s out of his control, and just due to readers gettin’ creative. Sometimes Munroe nudges it along. Truly, I’m hard-pressed to think of any better use of the internet than to provide pictures of scantily-clad or naked people rocking out in the shower (one of whom does her own webcomic which has more than its share of xkcdesque moments). Well done, Munroe and wet rocking people!
