I'm in the midst of 2 proposals right now (one satellite, one book), so I decided to take a break to share two web cartoons about science.  One is from Cowbirds in Love, the other from Abstruse Goose.  At one point I had a clever essay to go with the latter, but then someone forwarded the link to all our friends so it's already 'broken embargo' and removed the novelty.  Instead of adding comments, then, I'll just give you the pretty pictures.
