Today’s xkcd is a bit of a serious one. Click the picture to see the whole thing, and remember to hover your mouse over it to see the tooltip message.
OK, done that? Now I’ll mumble about it. The old “sticks and stones” thing always struck me as being a bit on the dodgy side. Even when I was a very young Les I was aware that words could most definitely hurt. Most of us have been hurt by something somebody said at some point in our lives, and most of us have, whether intending to or not, hurt someone else with something we’ve said.
Which is why I’m going to come over all philosophical and draw extra attention to that tooltip:
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can make me think I deserved it.
 Other pointing devices are available
 Yes, I was! I think it was on a Tuesday.
 Or something like that
