It's all about the base

 It's that dreaded time of year again! Geek Week, the week approaching Pi Day, in which we dump our bad STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) jokes in one fell swoop! The good news is, it's only one week. Enjoy!

Editor's note: Just a quick word about today's cartoon — the original caption had the girl choosing to change majors rather than deal with the harassment she receives from her peer. That was a little too close to the unfortunate reality, and not at all empowering to women who are interesting in pursuing the sciences as a career. I like this result better: it shows the social awkwardness of many males in the field (I work with engineers on a daily basis, remember), and the woman simply carries on with what she's doing.

So, yeah, sometimes a lot of thought goes into these cartoons. Go figure!
