Science Popularizing and a Comic

    I just found this comic which perfectly sums up my opinion about magazines like Scientific American and such. Just thought I'd share it: http://imgur.com/gallery/qy8jN [Broken]

    I feel exactly the same way when my friend's cousin was trying to explain to us what the LHC does. He only knows about it from what he's heard on the news, so naturally that quickly turned into a discussion on black holes, which he also knows almost nothing about.
