The content of the second strip also happens in most (all) of the graduate students real(?!?!?) life.I have asked my friends the same question and have got the same response and when i am asked how my research is..well, I give them all a blank look just like the girl in the strip!!
The fifth strip is about group meetings and do i have to say it again...Unmai,edhil erukkum athanayum unmai, unmai, unmai.
