Immediately drawn to one particular index entry in #HowToXKCD

The chapter in which that entry was used Did Not Disappoint

"This is a completely ridiculous suggestion, so it should come as no surprise that it was studied by the US government during the Cold War."

I'm delighted that this has become a running joke

What If? was my model for my own book - I really admire its fun and approachability and use of diagrams. And How To is checking all the same boxes SO WELL
