qwerty adventures

The origin of the qwerty keyboard, explained in a webcomic.
I'd always been very curious about this story, as i'd heard many different versions of it (some concerning demonic, sionistic or otherwise supernatural secret plots) and never knew which one to believe. But this one's in a comic, so it just has to be true.
The comic proceeds to convince the reader to switch to the effectively more functional Dvorak keyboard, which i'm tempted to try out at some point if only to make it impossible for other people to use my keyboard. And also impossible for me to use other people's, which i suppose is the downside.
