Sunday comics

We start with a sad note about the loss of Professor Egon Spengler.  Instead of a moment of silence, how about a few minutes of Ghostbusters.  RIP Harold Ramis.

RIP Harold Ramis.

Finally, somebody made a college recruitment commercial that was accurate.

For Frod, Wombat, Introvert Prof and all the other sciency-type people out there, this academic ranking graphic is for you.

And finally, we have a hostage situation.

Enjoy your Sunday.  We have some smack in the near future.  Don't miss it.


  1. Yep, that's about right, except exchange the picture of the undergrad as seen by a PI/Professor with the picture of the undergrad as seen by a PhD student. Jeez, they seem more like younger children all the time.

  2. I don't know how I missed this last weekend. Something seems to be wrong with the linkage.

    1. "Listen! Do you smell that?" Harold Ramis, wherever you are (or aren't), I always had a crush on you. And not just for your writing.

    2. That is one clever writer / actor. When will the Daily Show hire him?

    3. In my grad program, like Frod's, the PI / Professor would see the undergrads as the little tykes. Profs saw the grad students as the hot nympho or slaves, depending on sex, age, and weight. Guess which one I was?

    4. Best. Essay. Comments. Ever.
