I liked the picture on the most recent page (17) that while I was coloring I made it full 11x14 sized. XD Probably going to be used as a print/banner or other things I can think of.

I was waiting for this to post! I was working on the splash page for today and I absolutely loved how this one was coming out. Ended up making it a full 11x14! (Image originally made with copics and jet pens on 11x14 bristol board)

Did you know I draw a webcomic? You can find it at http://skys-end.com!

I also have a tumblr account for the comic too which you can find at skys-end!

“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

Exactly.

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.

I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.

Super Mario 64 - Bob-omb Battlefield crafted from Legos

"Bob-omb Battlefield is the first stage of Super Mario 64 - the flagship game for the N64 game system. This game came out way back when I was just a freshman in college, and I have great memories of endless game nights with friends playing this game. I’ve had the idea of doing a Super Mario layout for a while, but just what to do escaped me. (Lego versions of the original NES games have been done quite often). Upon finding my old N64 in ‘storage’, I was inspired to create this.” [x]
