Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

The Thing Explainer

The Thing Explainer is everything I have expected it to be. It’s the typical Randall Munroe style of funny, educational and weird. At first sight I was a bit disappointed by the thinness of the book, but the information of every single panel is so packed that you are ready for hours of reading, laughing and discovering tiny little details.
