Re: 0947: “Investing”

Re: What exactly do you do for math research projects?

As a related note, does anyone have any ideas for high-school level research projects? Not trying to hijack the thread or anything, just thought it couldn't hurt to ask.

We're revoking your geek card. Please turn it in by Friday's comic.

I feel so...un-geeky lately. The last few comics have been ones I haven't gotten immediately. SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH ME. OHGOD. <jumps out window>

Alt-Text: Wait, no, that one also loses. How about a nice game of chess?

Hooray, the ACTUAL 600th comic! There was no 404, so this is actually 600.

Re: "Apocalypse" Discussion

If you stretch it a bit, I could have a bacon number of 3. I went to high school with Kevin Pereira (well I didn't really know him that well, but still), who had an AotS episode with Josh Flaum, who was in The Air I Breath with Kevin Bacon...but that's kind of pushing it. :B
