    This math comic is giving me flashbacks to when my sister was trying to help me get motivated in math when my grades were slipping in that class. She was a senior in high school at the time and sat there for like 30 minutes gushing over the really cool things you could do with Advanced Calculus. I stared at her like she was speaking in tongues.

    I consider people who see the beauty in math to be the same breed as biologists who coo over the beauty of a 2-foot long venomous jumping spider that likes to build nests in your underwear. It's an important subject to study, but better you than me buddy.

    So the alleged beauty of math is like basically the coolest thing ever?

    Strange comparison, but if you feel that way...

    Look, if you want to get up close and say "I admire its purity" two seconds before it crawls into your underpants, you do you.

    It's planned obsolescence in action. Headed towards really, really disposable phones.

    The Alt-text is far less funny.
    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    I am fairly certain that Batman is gong to beat scott pilgrim and mega shark, but fall to Asterix who will be beaten by Ferrari.

    I'd put my money on the world for champion, given that all other contenders are subsets of the world.

    Nah, vampire-alien-Godzilla all the way. It can take that volcano, and it can take the win.

    The world gets punched out by Superman, who's beaten by Marvel.

    Do Batman and Superman each other before or after fighting the Teen Titans?

    I am torn between being glad a non-european referenced Astérix and being sad it was Astérix contre César that got referenced.

    I like that you don't think Batman beating Superman isn't even worth a mention.

    To be fair, there are only two versus that would work for Astérix in that context : César, or a crossover fight against Tintin or Spirou.

    Ah. I had Superman beating Batman, then falling to Pilgrim, since Cera beat up Brandon Routh in the movie. Seemed logical.

    (That was also the logic for him getting by Marvel in the semi-finals; I assumed Marvel would be represented by Captain America, and Cera also whipped Chris Evans. QED)

    I don't see Scott Pilgrim beating anyone except the world. And even the world is a tall order; he just beat a few people, really.

    Hi guys! I just got around to reading the NY Times from Sunday, and saw that Randall Munoe was the feature interview for By The Book.
