leave a comment »

I’ve been finding lately that motivation is largely about momentum.  It gets caught in circles vicious and virtuous.  Having fun? Have more fun!  Got some work done?  Great, I bet you’d do well at some more work!

I’m in the virtuous circle at the moment, as long as blogging counts as work.  Accomplishing this post will push me on to great feats of mathematics.

We’ve all wondered what drastic measures Jim Davis could take to make his comic funny again.

One website has showed us the way.  And the way is… way depressing.
