Empty Again.

A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting in a café and notice people going into and coming out of the house across the street. First they see two people going into the house. Time passes. After a while, they notice three persons coming out of the house.

The physicist: “The measurement was not accurate.”

The biologist: “They have reproduced.”

The mathematician: “If one person enters the house, then it will be empty again.”

On Being a Grad Student

If you’ve been following this blog for a bit you’ve obviously noticed the little strip of the latest PhD comics along the top.

PhD Comics is written and drawn By Jorge Cham, a one time grad student at Stanford University and used to be published in their student newspaper but now appears in a number of newspapers across the US as well as on the web.

One of my favourite series of strips is the Star Wars sequence because it appeals to the geeky side of me too! (Like grad students are not geeky enough!)

Oh, did I mention there was a Matrix series too?
