Spiked Math Comic - Grant Applications

Don't worry folks, once I get a grant I'll be sure to spend it on solving the mysteries of the spectral radius of the Laplacian matrix of a graph with girth at least 4 and diameter at least 3.

if you really insist on firsting you should at least include and actual thought along with the word "first" so that you don't look like a total idiot

Someone's feeling bad as the long lasting first tag was taken off. I laughed and what more would you want??

i wonder how many people have scanned those pages and ran them through facial recognition with the clothes..

cant make out the text in the last panel

I wouldn't have understood this if it weren't for the fact that I tried one of those Where's Waldo (Where's Wally, for international audiences) programming contests in my first term as an undergrad. I used some really stupid heuristic method and am still bitter that some grad student ended up winning by a couple points.

At least, I think that's what's going on in the last pannel. It's kinda late, I might be seeing things.

It is Charlie in french, not Wally.

But there's not a brick building at that location (at least according to Google Earth). :)

Come on, admit it, you know you went and looked.

Actually, that location is right next to Waldo Station Rd!

... in Waldo, Maine.



$7.3 million to find Waldo. Can anyone say anonymous donor?

It would have been funnier if a teenager found him using only a terrain map and a compass.

Either way, it's funny.

Is that the opening of south park on the left monitor with the grad students?

Have experts really declared this impossible? Finding relationships between lots of correlated variables doesn't sound so difficult...

hahahahahahahahahahahaha love the use of eigenvectors, eigenvalues, i.e to find waldo
