Light bulb series 1...

Everyone knows the good old jokes about 'how many ... does it take to change a light bulb'. Well, I decided to make some comic strips around such stories (in an upcoming series, with this as a beginning). The comic strip is also inspired by the fact that recently one of my students has asked a light bulb from my boss, but he said that if the student wants one, he must buy it. Probably it is easier to say this absurdity than to admit that he cannot change it and is even incompetent to buy some for the lab.

Safety signs for undergraduates in the lab

In April I had only few pageviews on the blog. So either my posts are no longer really interesting, or... Well, I decided that I have to try to do something against this sad sinking trend of the pageviews and prepared this safety instruction board for undergraduates in the lab. Hope you'll enjoy.

Baby names for politicians

This cartoon may seem to be far from science, but please do not forget that political science (or politology) does exist...  It is the science of politicians who are - temporarily or permanently - unable to MAKE politics. So they analyze it. As politics and science (and/or most science related activities) are yang-type, i.e. dominantly male-type activities, it was time to express also in this cartoon that the male names are energetic, powerful, while the yin-type female names are more based on sympathy, emotions, etc.

Easter bunny comic strip 3.

Yes, please check out first the two other comic strips (Easter bunny comic strip 1. and 2.) and then read this continuation of the series... Yes, sometimes young scientists have to wait for the moment of truth (or revenge), but it comes sooner or later (at least I hope so)... The actuality of the whole thing is not only Easter, but the fact that I've seen a PhD defense, where the supervisor attacked and negatively criticised his own student for the ideas he had and gave the student and which were not really brilliant, but of course, hmm, only the student (and unfortunate circumstances) are to blame for the situation...

Easter Egg comic strip

Well, I may be a little bit late, but I prepare for Easter with a usual science inspired cartoon. Enjoy.
