This is a collection of 60 or so comic strips made in 2008 that present breakthroughs in science research through a strange group of genetically modified characters. Sometimes the comics are funny, and other times they are more concerned with creating imagery to better illustrate the science article presented in the blog area beneath.

Ugh… when you find out that polymers can actually interact
Well, yeah. The costs aren’t in production. The costs are in our health, and the integrity of scientific process. In fact, we can’t even study the effects of plastic on our biochems unless we study them out of glass instruments.
Ugh. Ugh. Have a happy weekend, I’m nauseous. Ugh.]]>
Back in the late summer of 2007, feet
There was a hoax that threw investigators off… but in November of 2008, an actual sixth foot washed ashore.
Even after Dominion was Over, the feet never stopped flowing. Whose were they? Where did they come from? It will remain a mystery for as long as curiosity exists in this biosphere.]]>
Jeez, if you folks want horse science, I guess there’s some stem cell research that
So Jujubes used to be totally inedible rock-hard gelatin candies, until they added different chemicals to soften ‘em up and make ‘em more chewable. This is what happened when the makers of LEVONORGESTREL
And thus, like the insect invasions and so many other things that went wrong during Dominion’s Collapse, this turn of events helped ensure the end of the Masters.
The author of the following site LOVES Jujubes, to the point where I feel unease.]]>
Gasbustin’ wouldn’t have been possible without the realization that most of our planet’s mantle
In fact, this mantle mineral, peridotite, seems to naturally occur on the Earth’s surface in the country that used to be called Oman before Dominion ended.
The mineral needs only be exposed to carbon dioxide, and it starts reacting with the gas, trapping it in a carbonate mineral. With a little extra effort, we were able to stuff our industries’ excess CO2 into the mantle, preventing it from filling our atmosphere and trapping heat.
Thanks to Mr. Avila for his help with Ghostbusters vocabulary, and Mr. Rosichelli for his own fine idea on how to depict the strip.]]>
I shoulda done this one on Friday, what with the SPOOKY HALLOWEENERY angle.
Boy-howdy, usually I’m a big fan of the Fungal Kingdom… neither plant nor animal, it makes for an intriguing genre of organisms.
But I hear about how fungus is waging war against our vertebrate allies, the amphibians
Wow. What with the impending election day, I forgot it was Hallowe’en. Sorry I drifted from SCIENCE, but I had FEELINGS I had to express.
Anyhow, yeah, check out W. Edwards Deming. He’s
Well, they don’t really have noses. But they do have a sense of smell. Well, they can sense chemicals in their surroundings. C’mon, I anthropomorphize animals as a hobby, I can’t concern myself with these details.
Anyhow, Dr. Kornfeld’s team at Washington University in St. Louis discovered a chemical that blocks
India has joined the world’s powerhouse nations and have launched their first
India is reminding us of something that started half a century ago. Let’s pick it back up.
When Dominion’s Over, the (bio-engineered facsimiles of the)Hindu Pantheon will be happy to settle on the most magnificent object in our night sky.
Say hi to Agni, Ganesha, Hanuman, Kamadeva, and an overly-armed Vishnu!]]>
