This shirt, based on comic #585, contains scientists, sharks, and balloons.
I should have posted my list BEFORE christmas… but luckily for me I still got some of them. xkcd always speaks for me far better than I can myself and introduces that something extra, the intersection between scientists and science, real people and the real world, that is always producing unusual and unexpected results. I bet the research funding above wasn’t extended but who cares. Check out the punchline of the strip.
