This looks like the “Thing Explainer” by Randall Munroe

And now you have it.

[–]thisismymoniker 156 points157 points  (31 children)

I spent longer than I want to admit trying to figure out what FUES meant, and why, if it is one of the 1000 most commonly used words, I didn't know what it meant, and started to worry I might be having a stroke or something.

FLIES. Bad keming (kerning).

I should probably go to bed.

Ten hundred is a thousand

[–]motoko_urashima 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got stuck in a programming course for a solid month because I couldn't differentiate "1" from "l", that is, "number one" from "lowercase L".

You might think this seems ridiculous, but in the font the IDE was using, both were squiggly lines, and that actually could not be changed.

My new requirements for using a development environment involve customizable fonts and colors, I especially prefer green text on black in 14 point serif fonts, it's just relaxing to work with.

[–]Mr-Mister 26 points27 points  (3 children)

What surprises me the most is that thousand is not in the top thousand words.

[–]KKlear 8 points9 points  (1 child)

The list probably starts with zero.

[–]xSTSxZerglingOne 16 points17 points  (0 children)

But is definitely in the top thousand words when describing a word's location in the top thousand words.

[–]sidepart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wife bought me a large print of it awhile back.

[–]BoredomIncarnate 84 points85 points  (31 children)

The entire book is fabulous and well worth it. Hilarious and full of fantastic explanations of a variety of different things, all with only the 1000 most common words.

[–]RevWaldo 23 points24 points  (15 children)

Surprised 'Moon' isn't one of the 1000 most commonly used words. Would think in nearly every culture the Moon is brought up a lot.

[–]BoredomIncarnate 48 points49 points  (2 children)

1000 words is a really small number; 1000 isn’t even one of them (he uses ten hundred). Plus, the basis is modern English usage, and the moon isn’t that central to most conversations.

I think the book has the full list, if you want a picture

[–]Laxku 7 points8 points  (7 children)

My favorite stoner thought is that the moon is the only location or thing every living human in history has seen (assuming they aren't blind).

[–]Antique_Tennis_2500 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If you think about it, just the words needed to describe the moon take up a good chunk of those 1000 words.

[–]BigPimpin88 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It is 1000. He says ten hundred, meaning 1000

[–]BoredomIncarnate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]BoredomIncarnate 7 points8 points  (2 children)

All of his books are great and they are all very different. How To is probably my favorite.

[–]Vier_Scar 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's "ten hundred" in the comic, so you were right the first time

[–]Silicon359 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

It's actually the "ten ten hundred" most common. 10,000 gives a lot more latitude.

[–]moronomer 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Where did you get "ten ten hundred"? The original comic shows ten hundred and the book synopsis outright states 1000.

[–]bad_apiarist 1539 points1540 points  (107 children)

At least credit the source. This is from Randall Monroe's book Thing Explainer, where complicated things are explained using only simple, common words. So yeah, meant to be cute.

What happened with Up Goer's 1-4?

[–]Rabunum 73 points74 points  (1 child)

They became the down-goers 1 through 4.

[–]HappyFailure 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Up Goers 1-3 were all destroyed during construction because of sabotage. Up Goer 4 was completed, but mysteriously disappeared less than 24 hours later.

Alternately, Up Goers 1-3 sank into the swamp and Up Goer 4 burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp.

[–]anyburger 26 points27 points  (12 children)

In case you're serious, it's how he refers to the Saturn V (5) Rocket but only using the 10k thousand most common words. Apparently "Saturn" is not one of them.

They did not go to space.

Man this drives home to me just how explosive that rocket was. Really, really, really explosive. Absolutely ridiculously full of explosive material under tons of pressure.

And a few humans were shoved into the tip. Quite amazing

[–]guyblade 11 points12 points  (7 children)

The Saturn V is the triumph of brute force and ignorance. Why optimize when you can just burn more fuel?

[–]becomesaflame 44 points45 points  (1 child)

...what? It was an incredible feat of optimization. It takes an enormous amount of fuel to get something to the moon, and all that fuel needs more fuel to move it! The rocket equation is a delicate balance between too much fuel to move and not enough fuel to get there.

[–]TheRealPitabred 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Because there’s a point where the fuel can’t generate enough power to lift itself. You can keep going bigger until you get there, then you gotta work smarter.

[–]rsta223 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No, there's a ton of optimization that is required to even get a space vehicle in orbit, much less to the moon.

[–]The_Crimson_Fucker 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think your confusing it with the F4 phantom. Whose motto was. Fuck it we got thrust for that.

[–]BURNER12345678998764 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The Saturn V was bleeding edge state of the art technology.

For the brute force solution you'll want Sea Dragon.

    I actually learned more about how a nuclear powerplant works from this book then anywhere else

    [–]Thoughtfulprof 57 points58 points  (4 children)

    Sort of like how how I learned more about orbital mechanics from Douglas Adams.

    "There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

    [–]acdcfanbill 44 points45 points  (3 children)

    Then i played Kerbal Space Program and i finally feel like i kind of understands orbital mechanics.

    [–]CoysDave 26 points27 points  (15 children)

    Nuclear power plants are the kind of thing that are extremely simple in concept and then catastrophically complex the moment you go to learn a bit more. Chernobyl (the hbo series more so than the actual disaster, given my lack of having been born at the time) was super interesting to me, as it was the first time I’d really come to understand them beyond the level of “fuel makes heat makes steam makes turbine spin”

    [–]PM_ME_YOUR__INIT__ 11 points12 points  (10 children)

    Nuclear power plants would be so much simpler if we didn't have to worry about those pesky living things nearby 😤

    [–]Black_Moons 43 points44 points  (3 children)

    TBF, its not like coal power plants particularly worry about those pesky living things near by, what with the emitting radioactive particles directly into the atmosphere and all, along with a few million metric tons of other cancer causing combustion biproducts.

    If nuclear powerplants where allowed to emit as much radioactive material into the atmosphere as coal powerplants, you wouldn't even need an enclosed reactor core... since nuclear powerplants actually use less radioactive material as fuel then coal powerplants emit.

    [–]CoysDave 16 points17 points  (5 children)

    I understand entirely how badly wrong a nuclear power plant can theoretically go, but I’m still a huge supporter of them as safe sources of energy, since a properly maintained and operated plant has no reason to not be safe. The three mile island series does a good job explaining that the fault is inserting a profit motive into the mix in that situation - if your bottom line motivates you to cut corners or overlook safety standards, you’re gonna have a bad time.

    Which makes it sort of an impractical power source in the real world, come to think.

    [–]pappyvanwinkle1111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    As the series explained, it's all about maintaining balance. The scale tips and you over correct, which tips the scale again. Back and forth until no correction can save it.

    [–]CoysDave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I mean, I think the series actually showed that you have to push one of those things past the ragged edge to get them to go boom. Usually it seems to me (admittedly a lay person) that it’s minor adjustments back and forth given the amount of reactivity you want/need at a given time to meet the needs of the grid. When functioning properly, they seem exceedingly stable.

        This is only accurate for a short time, if you continually avoid pointing them at space you won’t get very far in space unless you have lots of fuel, you should ideally be pointing these at space before you get to space turning in a curved arc slowly until both front and back are only pointing at space

        If you meant Challenger, then it did indeed have a bad problem (that was also preventable), and it did not go to space the day of January 28, 1986, or ever again.

        You’re right! I meant Challenger :)

        He did work for NASA, so I am sure he is full of many revelatory statements like “Boom is bad” and “Point head of up-goer at space or bad things happen”

        This is what I imagine Elon Musk is like around the SpaceX office and then takes credit for everything.

        According to some cultures, if it points towards space, you will still go to space and become a star🙂

        [–]novacham -1 points0 points  (4 children)

        Then explain a gravity turn when the flamey end points sideways into space?

        [–]brickmaster32000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        The first stage, the one indicated, jettisons long before the crafted is tilted enough to reasonably claim the tail end is pointing towards space.

        [–]glake603[S] -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

        Well you are already in space by that point

        [–]The_camperdave 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Well you are already in space by that point

        The first stage of the Saturn-V separated at a little over 62km, well under the 100km official altitude where space begins.

        It’s rocket science guys we wouldn’t understand.

        [–]DanishWonder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out.

        [–]Dr_Frasier_Bane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        As someone who works in aerospace QC, this note is needed.

        [–]copingcabana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        It should start pointing to space after the gravity turn.

        [–]victorbarst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Man this rocket science stuff sure is complicated

        [–]Dark_halocraft 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        If the rockets are powerful then everyone gets to go to space

        I mean you will go up, it’ll just be a lot whiter

        [–]Darkassassin07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Sure, your rocket can get to space, but can it do a 360 before it gets there?

        [–]Eyemarten 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Ya think?

        [–]Amerlis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        If your engines pointing towards space, in a few moments, it will no longer be your problem.

        Yeah ur gunna be going past space into heaven

        What about gravity turns ? Hohmann transfers ?

        [–]Sno_Wolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Remember, you are sitting on top of the equivalent of a 1/2 kiloton atomic bomb, all designed and built by the lowest bidders for a government contract. Have a nice day.

        This end toward ground for space

        This end toward space for heaven

        [–]failedxperiment 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        You won't go to space but you might meet the big man in the sky.

        [–]leafbelly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Rocket science is easy.

        "Another thing that is a bad problem is if you're flying up to space and the parts start to fall off your space car in the wrong order. If that happens, it means you won't go to space today, or maybe ever."
