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. Another valentine's in the shape of a heart is 63: Valentine - Heart.

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 actually the only positive valentine's comic from Randall.

Another relevant comic to the Sierpinski Triangle is 95: The Sierpinski Penis Game.


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