Today’s xkcd raises the bar for what is already a superb “comic” (or should I call it graphic art?). I’ve put a screenshot below, but you really need to go to the original site, for the words flash lighter or darker at the frequency with which the event they depict takes place. Check out the […]

This is a sad and poignant science valentine from xkcd. As far as I can tell, its point is to show that science tells us what is true, not what we want to be true. And, in this case, the truth is sad.
Here are some cats to end a long and snowy week! Reader Matt has called my attention to a terrific comic strip, “The Adventures of Business Cat,” by Tom Fonder and Rachael Robins. He sent one strip, and I found another, but there are a lot more at their site: and
The title above is also the title of a strip from The Oatmeal, which, curiously, ends with the same sort of nihilism evinced in yesterday’s SMBC strip. But this one is much funnier, though it’s too long to reproduce here. So go to the link and start the day with a chortle. (I started mine […]

It might just be the ticket for the many people who ask me about resources for teaching evolution to kids. On […]
Just to remind you to follow the comic “Ten Cats,” by Graham Harrop, if you like feline-related humor. In the latest series of episodes, two chickens are trying to take over the top floor of the warehouse—where the Ten Cats dwell—so they can become Cat Dictators.
Alert reader Mark called my attention to a comic strip called “Ten Cats,” which was new to me. After reading a few strips, I was taken.
