Mad Science

I have a friend who is interested in memes. The concept interests me, as do some others that form the border between information processing, psychology, and technology.

For him, here is a link to a fun webcomic named A Miracle of Science set in a science-fiction world where a special police force attempts keeping the "Mad Scientist Meme" in check.

In somewhat related mad science non-news, the Badges of the OOTSSOERAAAP, why Indiana Jones was denied tenure, and a problem with retractable claws.

Hm. I wonder if Foamhedge counts as mad science?

Clearly an south-upward map doesn't. Because I find that interesting. ;-)
