I don’t post about much these days; few things seem worthy of the trouble of opening up WordPress, and those that are I’d prefer not to discuss on an open blog.

But anyway. This xkcd comic is about the Henry Gates/James Crowley affair, and for that alone it’s pretty good… but the title-text puts it over the top.

My biology grad student friends tell me that different types of alcohol don’t actually have different effects. I trust their expertise, not because of the ‘biology’ part, but because of the ‘grad student’.

I think xkcd has been awesome this week.


  1. Um, hello, Firefly?
  2. Do you really need any others?

The one and only webcomic I read regularly is xkcd. (There’s a reason why I keep going back: it’s just that good. Most of the time.)

So when Vienna posts this tweet, I’m strangely pleased to find that we have something in common.

I wonder, though, what she thinks of the title-text in the latest installment: ‘I’m nothing without you’ is a fucked-up sentiment.
