Given that it's xkcd, I wouldn't be surprised if it was based on some kind of data. Some form of google hits, maybe?

Did I ever tell you about the time I hung out with the guy who writes xkcd? He's a really awesome guy; all that stuff you see in the comics is how he really is - walking down the up escalator, having a ball pit at his house, etc.


A propos of nothing - I started playing roller hockey! It's funny how the ice skills do and don't translate. For example, I can skate pretty fast, but I can not yet stop. Today I was going full speed with no brakes, smacked into a guy probably 70lbs heavier than me, and got epically laid out. Now it hurts to sit down.
