I have no problem with Ted Rall's pro-socialist views, but seriously - why doesn't he shut up and move to Denmark, already?
I have been to 1. One. That was quite enough, thank you.
Well, coming from an old punk rocker, an avid reader of Maximum Rock N Roll, an old school agitator, Ted Rall (who was being published in MRR loooooooong before the term "politically correct" hit the mainstream) does not move to Denmark for the same reason That I want to start a rabble rousing hardcore punk band named Obamanation and use the stage name Obama Sin-Laden...because stuff like that pisses people off and makes them uncomfortable, and Mr. Rall feels he has the right to shake up the entire structure of this country and the way people think about things just as much as I do, ill-advised or not.
It's very hard to make physics funny, so applaudation from me! Good one Scott, in my experience you've never not been funny. I think the word of warning is never discuss politics or relgion or physics.
wow thats like scott's evil twin!
You should leave the heavy geekery to David Morgan-Mar, I think.
That's like me saying "I am a well educated man with NO CLUE as to the importance or fine points of literature or history."
Scott's "Village People" evil twin cousin, maybe?
wow, ray, looks like a lot of us ignored the warning on so many levels...do you think they'll sick the thought police on us? =)
I know I'm late to the party, but this reminded me of a physics joke I was told YEARS ago.If the answer is 'Newtonian mechanics", what was the question?
Who do you call to repair an amphibious vehicle?
what would be like me saying that my sense of humor tends to the nihilistic and absurd?
[...] physics humor is always good. Always. Published [...]
I believe that one of these "imperceptible differences" between QM and Newton is the existence of semiconductors.
Will the real Scott Meyer please stand up? Two cartoons ago, it was a " 'Watchmen' blue-glow-in-the-dark-phallus" joke, now you're trying to one-up Stephen Hawking... that makes my brain hurt...
Alright look, I googled "Unify form http basic" looking for an I.T. solution, and you guys are wasting my time by getting in the way!
I just found basic instructions for the first time today. I've been reading all these comics and dying laughing at every single one. except this one. As a physicist, you've offended me. I will not be reading any more of your comics, ever again. Also, i want to return the $1000 worth of merchandise i just purchased.
What Matt said about XKCD and physics jokes I would say goes for Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and physics jokes. Weinersmith has the advantage that he's taking the courses now, so the material is fresh in mind.
Scott has the advantage that he knows his limitations -- he's not a cartoonist. Zach has been told this, but still doesn't understand it.
