I figured it was a poem. Turns out it is, of a sort."girls+go+to"+"to+get+more" 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. -- 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. 14:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Both of you need to read some feminist literature (real feminist, not pop-feminist). 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... (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. 14:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

    • 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)

  • Looks to me like a typical Titan rocket. Zelmo (talk) 14:15, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

  • I wish today's comic made me laugh. 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. 17:57, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
