On the subject of magnetism and bacteria: How weird is that!
@kidcthulhu: Thanks, glad you liked them! I had to look up Ken Ham - the creationist, yeah? I mean, there are plenty of creationists in the UK too, but I get the impression they're not taken as seriously (or, no one engages with them as much) as some of the high-profile ones in the USA. O__O
These cards made me laugh so hard. As an American, I was really hoping to see a Ken Hamm jab in there ^_^

More work-related goodies at under 'Artwork'. ;-)
@Soob: don't ask me. I#ve only done photons for years!!! Perhaps you are right. You still need friction. The moment og the wheel makes you do the circle.

@jason: Ok, I'm still learning! What should it be then, a smaller frictional force so that the moments aren't exactly balanced, but exert torque to change the angular momentum to effect a rightward turn? -scratches head- Rotational mechanics was never my strong suit.
Actually motorcyclists can do crazy angles. I wonder if that is because of the bigger angular momentum of the wheels? It's certainly easier to balance on a motorcycle.
amgular momentum of wheels
You missed that out ;). Otherwise you'd never stay up at all!

Video here: - enjoy!

If you're looking for something lighter, might I recommend . I'm getting rather addicted to SatW now.
This is a must-listen: Blood and Fire: the Segregation and Racialisation of Blood

I've seen an independent verification of my sums (informally, spontaneously, by another nerd) and I'm confident I'm in the right ballpark. He gets 1.6% more donations when allowing MSM donors vs. totally banning them, and 200% more HIV-contaminated donations. (Also, actually in Table 7 on p.48 of the SaBTO 2011 document I reference - facepalm!)

I'm not vegetarian but I do think it's very wrong to ridicule anyone else's beliefs unless they are ridiculing yours.
This looks like the sort of equation they have on the board in Big Bang. I must admit I don't understand the maths but I imagine V is velocity and gr might be gravity. Glad you recovered okay though, it sounds like it must have been quite bad.

Apologies for the non-P+B thing again. Just thought I'd share this doodle (in a sense a kind of sequel to this one), and a few thoughts:

Did you know that this video is poking fun at vegans? I saw so much of my meat-eating friends in it, I honestly thought it was an incisive double-back-hander made by some very clever vegans.

"a record 542,000 people in the United Kingdom now identify as vegan - the largest number ever"
(It also says half of 15-34-y-olds and 14% of over-65s are vegan - I think they meant half of all vegans are aged 15-34 and 14% of all vegans are over 65...

Facing explosive obesity, China is telling citizens to cut back on meat and eggs
(Yeah China, get back in touch with your roots. #ReclaimTheSoy )

Meanwhile, pig farmers add their laments to those of dairy farmers. Much as I hail the victories wrought by the unholy alliance of Soy with Free Market Capitalism, it does sadden me that small (less polluting) farms will likely be the first to go.

I'd like to make it known that I'm not vegetarian or vegan but I am a f***ing hypocrite. I'd also like to make it known that I have a vegan friend who actually proselytises less than I do. I'd also also like to tell you about one chap (an omnivorous vegan ally) complaining about the subset of vegans who will not shut up about how murderously evil you are if you aren't vegan - his reply to them? "Look at the trends - you'll get more vegans just by being patient and doing nothing."
Not a P+B comic, just a doodle that helped me cope with the crushing shame of being too dumb to slow down on my bike. I'm all healed now though, and what with new skin forming, I feel like a freakin' timelord.

@Matumio: I'm so glad you've enjoyed these comics - you're too kind!
April 15th, 2016
In the name of all current and future readers who never bothered to comment: big thank you for all those thought-provoking comics. In case you ever start or continue a comic elsewhere, please leave us a note. Some of us will be checking monthly just in case there is a last-after-last-after-last. Either way: happy data meal :-)

Can't resist one last little doodle.

The End.

Thanks for sticking around for all these years, I love you all!
Sooooooo if bacteria are eyeballs drawn towards the light, what are they hoping to see, a shadow theatre production of Hamlet perhaps?
This is certainly food for thought! XD

On a more sensible level, I'm thinking light is energy and important to a lot of organic life so when we sleep and there is no light do the bacteria sleep too? It must be pretty boring floating around for 8hrs with nothing to watch, I'd hate it.
Okayyyy so now I'm imagining billions of tiny tiny tadpoles with huge eyeballs swimming around inside of me! My main question is how will I sleep now?
