    We wonder…rechargeable?  I’d add an integrated pregnancy test.

  2. “Telephone Sanitisers, Management Consultants and Marketing executives were persuaded that the planet was under threat from an enormous mutant star goat. The useless third of their population was then packed in Ark spaceships and sent to an insignificant planet.

    That planet turned out to be Earth.”  The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    American Chemical Society

    The American Physical Society (APS) used a version of the same one. I especially liked the cripple in the wheelchair. The one with the rainbow hat is even better because it’s a twofer.

    The APS also issued a strongly-worded letter condemning racism. Does that mean they favored racism up until June 1? A bit late to the party, guys. They got one part wrong, though. It mentions Diversity, Inclusion, and Respect (DIR). It should be Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE). That acronym is so much more appropriate.

    I plan to STEM extra hard today, APS. You know, just to make up for all the slackers in the academy.
