Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain rain, come here, hey!
Forest’s burning night and day.
It smells like an old ashtray.
Rain rain, can’t you stay?

Rain rain, please just stay!
Animals are dead, oy vey!
Soot-black trees, death and decay.
Rain rain, won’t you stay?

Rain rain, don’t you stay!
It’s too late now anyway.
Rain rain, go away.


When you spend your afternoons with your two-year-old watching countless nursery rhyme videos on YouTube, and then your evenings following the latest on the Australian wildfires, you just have to make this connection.

If you want to donate and support the fight against the Australian bushfires or assist the victims, actor Chris Hemsworth has put up a page with links to various organizations you can donate to.

And here’s some more dark humor.

Zeno’s Paradox

Zeno's Paradox

Zeno’s paradox is cool
to think about when smoking pot,
when crazy shit pops in your head,
filling up your zone of thought.

Zeno’s paradox is cool
to think about when shitting. Hey,
you really think those ancient Greeks
did not come up with it this way?

Zeno’s paradox is cool
to talk about with a geek friend:
philosopher, mathematician,
dude the fun will never end!

Zeno’s paradox should not
be used in court, don’t be an ass.
Don’t mention it in your sex trial,
or better yet – just don’t harass!


For those unfamiliar with Zeno’s paradoxes, the dichotomy paradox states that a runner (not just any runner, Achilles!) racing on a track will never reach his destination. That’s because that in order to reach his destination, he must first reach half the distance to his goal. But in order to reach half his distance, he must first reach a quarter of his distance, and in order to do that he must reach 1/8th of his distance, and before that 1/16, and so forth. Since there are an infinite number of steps the runner has to make, he will never be able to achieve his task.
The resulting sequence can be presented as {1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, …}.
How do we resolve the paradox? Well, Zeno assumed that the sum of the infinite series that he presented is infinite. But today, thanks to calculus, we know that the above geometric series converges to 1 (here’s the proof). But Zeno lived in the 5th century BC, and math managed to handle these kind of convergence problems only in the late 19th century (thanks to Cauchy and Weierstrass). Before that, some other interesting solutions were proposed. The one which I found most interesting (*) is Hermann Weyl’s proposal, which stated that you cannot assume that any between any two points in space there is always another point.

(*) The reason I found it interesting is that when I myself sat to think of possible solutions to the paradox, this was the first one that I came up with 🙂

Lottery Ticket

Lottery Ticket - by C-Section Comics

The lottery is your ticket to heaven –
quitting your job, just having fun,
traveling, partying, living the dream.
How fun it can be (if only you’d won).

The lottery is your ticket to hell,
You’ll lose all your friends, you’ll suspect everyone,
constantly fearing that you’ll lose it all.
A terrible nightmare (if only you’d won).


You know what’s funny, right? That while the girl in the first panel partied, her LA mansion probably quadrupled its value, which more than paid for her lavish and carefree lifestyle.

But does winning the lottery actually make you happier? Well, there’s a famous research titled “Lottery winners and accident victims: Is happiness relative?“, dating back to 1978, which implies the opposite. Quoting a Business Insider article on this study:

  • Lottery winners rated the pleasure of mundane events of everyday life significantly lower than the controls.
  • Accident victims were not as unhappy as expected. They reported lower general happiness than lottery winners, but they reported happiness-levels that were quite well above the middle of the scale.
  • Lottery winners generated less pleasure by ordinary events of everyday life than controls. This effect can be explained by adaptation level theory and leads to the surprising fact, that they are not generally happier than people who didn’t win the lottery.
  • The accident victims also showed the expected contrast effect, but they contrasted the present events with events in the past. This can be called a “nostalgia effect” which is expected to wear off as time goes by.
  • The overall positive or negative effect of a single positive or negative event should not be overestimated: Most likely there are contrast effects, that compensate some of the effect and habituation effects, that limit the duration of a feeling generated by an event.
  • So there you have it. Winning the lottery does not make miserable people happy, and naturally happy people will retain their happiness levels even in tough times. At the end of it all, it’s all about your brain chemistry.

    Nevertheless, yours truly will still keep filling up lottery tickets. If there’s one tax I enjoy paying, it’s the idiot’s tax. And I know that I’m more likely to be hit by lightning than winning the lottery. I’m also more likely to die from flesh eating bacteria, or to parent quadruplets. I still can’t decide which of these is worse.


    Here’s another comic about stress and anxiety. And here’s one about making a bad investment.

    Tricky Tony Burns Ginger Jim

    Tricky Tony burns Ginger Jim

    As Ginger Jim arrested him, Tricky Tony said:
    “I will BURN you, Ginger Jim, cuff me, go ahead!”
    Ginger Jim was not impressed by Tony’s idle threat.
    What a big mistake he made, one that he’ll regret.
    Few months later, Jim lies on a beach, with so much style.
    He got tickets, free ones, to a hot volcanic isle.
    Tony laughs “Teehee” because poor Jim, he just forgot,
    that gingers don’t do well in sunny weathers, they get hot.
    As Ginger Jim’s pale skin got red our Tony was content.
    He made Ginger Jim get burned, just like he had said.
    It was fun but it sure wasn’t Tony’s last idea:
    One year later Jim will get some burning Gonorrhea.


    I just realized that even though I didn’t drew him so intentionally, Jim came out looking like Jumbo from “Once Upon a Time… Man”.

    Vacuous Truth

    Vacuous Truth - by C-Section Comics

    Members of an empty set in math (and logic) have it all.
    They fulfill just any statement. That’s because, as you recall
    an empty set just has no members, they don’t exist like me or you,
    so anything you say about them, we’ll consider to be true.

    Cats with wings can also sing, eight-legged dogs have a third eye,
    humans that were born outside the milky-way can easily fly.
    Listen, my fourth wife is nine feet tall and also she’s called Ruth.
    This is not a lie my friend, in math it’s called a vacuous truth.


    There ya go.

    Now that you learned what’s a vacuous truth, you can read more comics about math, like this one featuring a wiseguy mathematician in the city.
