XKCD goes geek Can't Post

XKCD is getting geeky on us again, this time referencing swords that glow blue. We're definitely familiar with a few of those, namely Bilbo's 'Sting,' Gandalf's 'Glamdring' and Thorin's 'Orcrist.' Thanks for putting a smile on our geeky faces, XKCD. (Click on the picture to see the full-size image).

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Good spot [In reply to] Can't Post

I had been thinking about posting this myself.

OT remark: XKCD's new feature "What If?" is great too. It's a weekly essay trying to answer one absurd hypothetical question with straight-faced real physics.
