People love to put down the fields of others. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s all about ego and all, but honestly it just seems bizarre at times. Anyone halfway intelligent can see the difficulty in fields not their own, and they also wouldn’t be so insecure about their intellect. Which makes it a fun quick tipoff of someone’s insecurity when they disparage another field.

Science classes would probably grab more student attention if they were put into the terms of a soap opera. I’ll leave it to you to think of your own dirty science spinoff of Downton Abbey.
Aren’t the elements in the first panel kind of cute? Except for Nitrogen, what’s up with that guy?
Mock climate change deniers, mention God, and make everyone angry all in one strip! Seriously, there are simply some truths that are bewildering to see people still in denial over. The recent backlash against birth control is so strange. Unless you’re a family of twenty with your own reality show, pretty much every family in America uses birth control. This shouldn’t even be a debate.
What if dinosaurs were just a prank? No, this is not some Creationist ranting, but a genuine question about our Jurassic buddies. Have you ever seen a dinosaur?
In a museum? Those aren’t real dinosaurs–they’re just bones! And most of the time they’re not even the real bones but castings of the supposed actual bones.
It’s not a fair question, though. Dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years! Sure, that’s what they want you to believe. Who is this mysterious they?
Scientists? They have better things to occupy their time than making up fake animals–such as torturing real ones in labs. Scientists hate mice, so they have no real reason to start making up new animals until they’ve finished off Mickey and friends.
So, who? I don’t know, you tell me. Who would want all mankind to fictitiously believe in large reptiles which once ruled the earth? Right, the V aliens. When they come they’d like for us to be comfortable with the concept of reptiles in charge. Trust me, all those museum exhibits are just going to look like reptile pride parades to them.
The next time you give your child a small plastic dinosaur to play with, I hope you realize you’re just training them for their future reptilian overlords.
