Monday Funnies... on Wednesday [Full link to blog for email clients.][FT:C44]

[Note this blog was delayed to allow the timely posting of Monday's blog.]

This week's Monday Funnies spotlights two different sites.

First up is Doc Nickel and his Website Doc's Machine, featuring "The Whiteboard" comic strip.

Granted, most of the jokes in The Whiteboard are engineering rather than strictly science, Doc and Roger are inventors, engineers, and accidental scientists.  No one knows exactly where the character Doc (The Polar Bear) gets his funding, but his sources seem strangely familiar to me... Hmmm......

My favorite strips are... well, anything where Doc and Roger are inventing!

Inventing the wormhole gun:

Doc discovers super-speed (in more ways than one):


Next up, Dante Shepherd's "Surviving the World".

Dante does a great job poking fun at science and education/universities in general while also showing a bit of the serious side.  In this entry, he has a bit of advice for making science a bit more interesting.

Thanks, Dante, and in fact I think you and I are both working on that "better job of teaching science."  

By the way - don't blame me if you waste a lot of time reading the webcomics, although some of my online friends to take pleasure in getting newcomers hooked on certain sites we find....

You have been warned!
