The Electromagnetic Spectrum

I've mentioned some of the comics at the xkcd site before. Many of them are science related. I found the recent comic below about the electromagnetic spectrum hilarious! It covers everything from the stadium wave to the sinister Google projects. I love the absorption spectra. Click here to see a larger version of the comic on the xkcd site. I might keep this link handy for my first year chemistry students.

Lol ew the Tampax part. I guess if they are old enough to do chemistry, they are old enough to get it. haha. I wouldn't be giving this out in any High school 'cause parents are crazy, but do it if you teach college.

It's not "La Quinta-bunny" funny. I can guess the reactions on your students' faces when you hand it out. It'll look like mine: WTF? (and I at least UNDERSTAND it)
