What If? by Randall Munroe

People have sent Randall Munroe amazingly creative questions, like “Could you build a jetpack using downward-firing machine guns?” and he endeavors to answer them with the enthusiastic tenacity of STEM graduate students trying to please their dissertation boards. Fans of Munroe’s wildly popular comic xkcd don’t need any convincing. For the rest of you, think of What If? as the natural extension of shows like MythBusters— except with completely untestable scenarios and much geekier humor. Trust me, it’s transcendent.
