13 Webcomics That Will Make You Smarter
“While some webcomics deliver a quick joke or the latest installment in a long-form story, many comics floating around the Internet have something to teach us about the world. Here are some of our favorite comics that delve into science, history, philosophy, and more.”
See the full list at io9.

Great list. I almost feel like calling them “comics” is an injustice to their intellectual stimulation-ness.
I would also add to the list Bird and Moon, Zen Pencilsand Boxplot (formerly Sci-ence). Did I (or io9) miss any of your favorite smart comics? Reblog with your faves!

What's that in your tags about Ben being picked up and taken to his hotel after a week of binging? It was in the news? I haven't found anything about it

cumberbuddy:

Yeah it’s from Tor’s Mind Phallus Prints. To be read in Australian accent. 

"Actor Benedict Cumberbatch rescued by a Sydney Seaplane pilot after a week binge!

Benedict Cumberbatch, 37, from London, who is best known for playing Sherlock Holmes was picked up by a Sydney seaplane pilot earlier today. Reports say that he has been off his face on Australia’s best white for 1 whole week and he’d simply forgotten where he was and where he was staying. Cumberbatch was found along the shore chatting to a tennis ball he’d apparently named ‘Wilson’. He said, “I can’t wait to get back to my hotel to change my clothes! It’s been a long and confusing week. I couldn’t even remember what my name was. Wilson here told me it was Steve Jones and there were no reservations for me in the hotels we went in to. Neither in the public bathrooms…? Wilson is the best and worse co-star i have ever fucking worked with.” He also said, “Apparently some website has said i’ve acquired a mystery girlfriend since i’ve been stranded, so naturally i can’t wait to meet her, man! They better not be lying to me! Cor, i do hope she likes puzzles!” Our reporter Dwayne Honeysett couldn’t get much more of his report written down saying Cumberbatch was “talking way too fast for my hand, dude. I wish i’d have recorded it instead of using my notepad. Maybe it’s the effects of the Australian wine he’d just finished off before i got there. Will have to get some of that myself!” Benedict was also said to have climbed the Sydney bridge and made a perfect heart hand gesture, although Cumberbatch doesn’t recall it. He hugged the pilot, Terry, 33, around 14 times and gave him a few autographs (although Terry said “His autographs are like a weird, morphed smiley face?”) and pointed at Terry (“I can’t get my hand out of this position. Must be effects of that wine. It’s fucking wild, that wine!”) before he was last seen skipping (at first, the wrong way) down the harbour, throwing ‘Wilson’ in the air with joy and rapping along, acappella, to a song we aren’t quite aware of. God speed ya mate.” 

And that was a completely false article from my brain.

Genius! You should think about writing!
Hilarious!

Martin Crieff and Princess Theresa for kassna. It’s been a long time since I’ve drawn these two so it’s interesting to see how my style’s changed with them.

Einstein and the Paper Clip

jtotheizzoe:

According to mathematician and Einstein collaborator Ernst Straus, this is the anecdote that Albert most thought captured his essence:

We [Einstein and Ernst Straus] had finished the preparation of a paper and were looking for a paper clip. After opening a lot of drawers we finally found…

Martin Freeman’s got lots of wonderful quirks and talents. Many of which are on display in the film. But his most remarkable quality as an actor is to be able, with absolute clarity, to convey that he’s thinking two things at the same time. And you know as an audience what they are. And I wasn’t the only one on the set to say to himself later: “I wish I could act like that.” He has a palette of subtlety. And I thought, this is a new sort of acting that I’ve never seen before. — Sir Ian McKellen

If Sir Ian McKellen complimented my acting, I would die.

Then we have to hope and be grateful that you’re not Martin Freeman because “SIR IAN ARTICULATES NEW ACTING TALENT; FREEMAN DIES IN RESPONSE” is a very sad headline.

At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.

To learn more about these fascinating genes, watch the whole talk here»

Fascinating!
