Recursion, XKCD Style
Ok, this is a good runner up for the best definition of recursion. Douglas Hofstadter would be proud.
I think I'm going to start collecting these.
Comic from xkcd, used according to their "terms of service":
You are welcome to reprint occasional comics pretty much anywhere (presentations, papers, blogs with ads, etc). If you're not outright merchandizing, you're probably fine. Just be sure to attribute the comic to xkcd.com.So attributed.
Hm. Does the xkcd terms of service apply to the xkcd terms of service? Is that a bit like a post about recursion referring to itself? How meta.
