Floor Tiles
The worst part is when sidewalk cracks are out-of-sync with your natural stride.
Title text: The worst part is when sidewalk cracks are out-of-sync with your natural stride.

Explanation

In this comic, Cueball is walking according to a certain pattern of floor tiles which makes sense to him in his head. But as someone asks him why he is walking funny, he realises that the algorithm he is using for walking on floor tiles would be so tedious and time-consuming to explain to his friend that he decides instead to simply defend himself and say that he isn't walking funny. Either that, or he is embarrassed to explain. This being far simpler than trying to show his friend exactly how his logic works - in his head, he imagines a complex diagram.

Now I know who the brainy one is, I'll keep looknig for your posts.
