SMBC gets it right, as usual

smbc_sep252010As always, Zach Weiner is correct in his Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic; astronomy is the most romantic science. But then, it has to be when he includes me in the strip.

At least, I assume that's me. It looks like me, it looks the way he's drawn me before, and he's met my wife, who has blond hair as does the woman to whom the astronomer in the strip is relaying the permutations of his love.

Plus I got quite a few tweets and emails saying it was me, too. So yeah, I'm going with it. And I'll add, Zach, I love you more than there are stars in a cup.

Oh yeah: the comic is probably NSFW. That's usually the way to bet with SMBC.
