For all the non-scientists in my life

I love these PhD (Piled Higher and deeper) comics, that present the life of a grad student (and by extension, us ex-grad students). These two really represent what its like for me. Its about your thesis, your life's work (to date) and those around you.
The first is about people trying to read your thesis. Ha! I actually wrote an extended acknowledgements section because I had a lot of people to thank, and it would realistically be the only thing they could read...

The second is what the thesis actually SAYS. This is funny, and accurate. So, all of the people in my life who are not scientists.... You are not alone is the complete incomprehension of my thesis!! Congrats!
