Check out the content at xkcd: a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. (I really appreciate the use of the comma before the “and” in the series of this subtitle—something which seems to be out of vogue at the moment.)

The current installment makes ironic reference to the “universal truths” that math teachers get to impart. I believe it’s important to understand math as a product of culture and it’s something I talk about in class regularly—but, that is a topic for another post.

As always, thanks to webmaven Alisa for keeping me informed.

    serial commas rock, make me happy too, and are definitely a convention worth continuing.
