Sierpinski Valentine
Especially you mouseover text readers. You're the best. <3
Title text: Especially you mouseover text readers. You're the best. <3


A Valentine's Day card from Randall to the xkcd readers. It is written inside a parody of the Sierpinski Triangle, a Sierpinski Valentine.

A Sierpinski triangle.

The Sierpinski Triangle is a fractal pattern made of triangles, covering a space. The way it works is to draw a triangle and draw another (upside down) one in the middle. Choose the upper, left and right triangle and repeat the process.

The <3 in the title text is an emoticon for a heart and goes out to those of his readers that read the title text. This is one of the only actually positive versions of a valentine comic from Randall.

Another relevant comic is 95: The Sierpinski Penis Game.


[Shows an adaptation of the Sierpinski triangle fractal, using hearts instead of triangles.]
Happy valentine's day.
