It's friday. We should all have a laugh…

Yesterday’s posting on the flaws in the Citizen Assembly process generated a lively debate – one I hope will continue today and tomorrow.

In the meantime, for some comic relief, I’m keen to share my newest geek chic find. It’s called “Piled Higher and Deeper” and it is a comic strip by a grad student at Stanford. For anyone who has been a grad student, the child of professors or worse, both, this comic is painfully, indeed sometimes cruelly, hilarious.

I chose this sample, not because it is the funniest, but because it jives with the main point of this post:

Just in case you were wondering, if you found this funny, you are a geek.

For those brave enough to take the plunge, I recommend starting at the beginning and reading them sequentially.

    This was a grad school coping mechanism for me. In my field you know you’ve hit geekdom when you find jokes about, say, Mrs. Rawls and the Original Position funny.
