Futility Closet

Futility Closet

I keep waiting for someone to list the Top Five Science Cartoonists That You Don’t Know About But Should. The addendum is that I hope my name appears on the list. Or that I can scrawl it in, if no one’s looking.

Until then, I have my champion in Greg Ross and his Futility Closet (which proves just how eclectic and esoteric his subjects can be, if my work fits comfortably in the company of his compendious amusements.)

My Futility Closet

Futility Closet is a brainy, eclectic blog, which should probably be re-titled Mark’s Futility Closet.  It has nothing to do with cartoons, but it might. You never know. Sooner or later all topics — odd patents, bizarre crime, improbable history — are bound to cross it’s threshold.

Greg Ross, who stocks the closet, and is likely a closet member of Mensa, loves puzzles of logic and riddles of math. Four subjects in which I’m extremely good at being extremely bad.

Sometimes, however, he offers a post that even I can appreciate, front to back.
