Here's a diversion for those long nights when the theory of gravity is weighing you down or thermodynamics has you overheated. Fill up on jokes at this buffet of links to physics cartoons, jests, and spoofs. Along with the usual corny “How many physicists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” jokes, the site features some inspired stuff like a satirical musical called Cold Fusion and a learned debate on whether the laws of physics disprove the existence of Santa Claus. The jokes are part of DC Physics, a handy Web directory compiled by physics prof-turned-techie Doug Craigen that includes online tutorials, applets, journals, and job lists.
