7:55 PM | (x, why?) Mini: Break the Plane
(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.) (C)Copyright 2014, C. Burke.Why are planes always parallelograms? Doesn't that get confusing? I've wanted to do this every Sunday since the season started, and then I forget until the last minute ... so I say, "That's okay. There's Monday Night, too!", but that hasn't worked out recently, either. So here it is.

Hey everyone, some news, but it’s no big deal or anything, be cool. If you’re interested, a few weeks ago I officially left the University of Cambridge and the Millennium Mathematics Project after six awesome years. I spent a lot of time travelling the world and giving public talks, I loved every minute of it, and I hope to be able to work with Cambridge and the MMP again in the future. But for now I will be working as an individual. I’ll will still be doing talks, and you can […]

Belle and Mr. Whiskers have been here for a while now, too. I think that this is there sixth appearance in seven years.

I've been wanting to get these characters back into the same building for a while. Every time that I have a good (or reasonable) idea for a gag, I put it on hold because they aren't in the same place.
