[Comic for Wednesday, May 25, 2016]


[[Nick responds to Pi's question from the last strip ("How, exactly, is this pile of junk supposed to be a trans-dimensional transport?"). Planck stands nearby, listening, as Nick holds one of the MUTEX helmets and examines it as he responds.]]

Pi: We're already aware of your anomalous genetic makeup.
