hey I never realized you have a link to your own website lol :)
PHYSICS PATROL I'd prefer the full one to be d/dt (and partials d/dx, d/dy and d/dz), could make more sense that way ;[
Meh. This particular comic is highly derivative. ;-)
But it's definitely the limit!
This strip is an integral part of my day.
I am partial towards comics such as these, from which I derive much humor.
I don't really see the d/dx as being related to the partials in that way. Rather, I see d/dx as being the adorable, but ultimately prosaic/limited child where as the partials are the intellectual full-grown adults. The partials understand that in our imperfect Universe it's very rare to be able to differentiate fully. Usually, in the *real* world, we must settle for only a partial answer.
Furry cows moo and decompress.
