Spiked Math Comic - Curling with gradients

I did a google search for "gradients can't curl" and came up with Qiaochu Yuan's comment, so credit to him!

Haha! Awesome comic! Really nice job! I'm sure Stokes laughs at this! :)

learning about gradients JUST today makes me feel really clever now =)

Why do physics graduates have straight hair?
Because the curl of the grad is 0.
This joke actually managed to get me to remember it so I guess it was useful.

This reminds me of a music video I've been planning on making for more than a year now. I must get on that. :)

Shouldn't it be "gradients can't be curled" and you could draw a comic at the barber's shop, just my two cents.

yo momma so fat, she makes gradient ∇F curl
