* "Go to Jupiter to get knowledge" is a reference to the movie 2001. Also, I remember hearing the poem as "GIRLS, go to COLL,ege so THEY can get, KNOW,ledge, BOYS, go to JUpiter so THEY, can get STUpider" which avoids the "more stupider" construction.

I figured it was a poem. Turns out it is, of a sort. https://encrypted.google.com/search?q="girls+go+to"+"to+get+more" 68.151.108.107 04:50, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

I thought of Men are from Mars Women are from Venus by John Gray and the response Men Are from Earth. Women Are from Earth: Deal with It by Gorge Carlin. If only the sexes could work together we could go to Jupiter. --202.129.80.226 08:12, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

  • This is wonderful and I think in the same spirit as the comic. Stop the 'sex war' jokes and admit that both boys and girls want knowledge. And to arrive to Jupiter. 84.150.177.228 14:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Both of you need to read some feminist literature (real feminist, not pop-feminist). 66.202.132.250 18:03, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

I would interpret differently the two last pictures: as girls and boys SEPARATLY go to college to get knowledge, Girls and boys TOGETHER go to Jupiter, meaning when a boy and girl interact, they generally act stupid... 217.128.49.53 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

  • I cannot imagine the author of XKCD using going to Jupiter as an example of doing something stupid. Absolutely improbable IMHO.84.150.177.228 14:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • isnt thw rocket quite phallic? girlsnand boysngo to colledge to getmore....ehm... knowledge? 88.119.96.51 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
    • No, is only a rocket. But, thinking about your comment like it was a response from a rorschach test, well, it tell us something about yourself Chris-l (talk) 15:22, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
    • It tells us that he's drunk. 66.202.132.250 18:03, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • 99.66.9.158 11:26, 22 April 2013 (UTC)Sometimes a rocket is just a rocket.
  • Looks to me like a typical Titan rocket. Zelmo (talk) 14:15, 22 April 2013 (UTC)


  • I wish today's comic made me laugh. 184.66.160.91 14:30, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • "Go to Jupiter to get knowledge" is a reference to the movie 2001. Also, I remember hearing the poem as "GIRLS, go to COLL,ege so THEY can get, KNOW,ledge, BOYS, go to JUpiter so THEY, can get STUpider" which avoids the "more stupider" construction. 66.202.132.250 17:57, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
