Remember my crazy skinned knee incident?
Yeah. This series is turning into “the many concerns and afflictions of JQ”

Am I not allowed to draw characters that resemble Smurfs? I should probably figure this out.
Anyway, it’s SF summer, which means it’s effing cold.
And even though we know cold weather can’t directly make you sick, a whole lot of stuff can right now. If you get sick, don’t damage your liver, kiddies. That’s what Grandpa should really be saying.

Eep, I still struggle with this.
(I really like saying “eep” right now.)

Eeep, sorry guys, I slacked off a bit in posting during Spring Quarter. But that just means you actually get cartoons over the summer, woo!
New followers, hi! Welcome to BMS Cartoons, where I try to teach science by drawing cute blobs. Usually, summers are mostly crickets punctuated by reblogs, but this week there are cartoons!
Also, I actually met with Alison Boden because I was like, “Hey, I keep fainting because I’m anemic and have low blood pressure and have been sort of trying to be a vegetarian and am (half)-marathon training. This whole eating thing is hard for me. Help?”
And she was like, “Um, some people can pull off being a vegetarian. You are not one of them. Eat more salt and red meat, girl.”
And then, more importantly, she said, “Oh hey, you’re the girl who drew that cartoon! We all loved it!”
Note: This is not actually how this conversation went, but it was all kind of fun(ny).

huffingtonpost:

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

Cancer-resistant blind mole rat gets genome sequence

"Scientists have sequenced the genome of the blind mole rat, a mammal that digs with its teeth, has skin over its eyes and lives for more than 20 years.

Its underground lifestyle means coping with no light, very little oxygen and an awful lot of dirt.

It is also resistant to cancer, like its distant cousin the naked mole rat.

The new work, published in the journal Nature Communications, will help unpick those secrets and the wider adaptation of animals to difficult environments.”
