Does Airgas do home deliveries? (Normally, Mike would just time travel to get it, but it seems that time travel to and from 2020 is not permitted due to the state's stay-in-your-own-time-period order.)

I have to feel some empathy for the grad students who have to defend remotely because of all that's going on right now.

Beans http://cesiumcomics.com/2020/04/04/Beans

Note to time travelers from the past: during the pandemic of 2020, there were runs on certain grocery items, including canned beans (and especially toilet paper, which is understandable if you're actually eating all those canned beans).

Also, time traveler from the past, are you an idiot? Number one rule of time travel: always make sure you know what time period you're traveling into. I hope you realize you can't go back to your time period now, what with the probability of bringing back the coronavirus with you...

An illustration of how infrequently I've been updating this comic: in between when I wrote the script, and when I made the comic, the smoking age in the U.S. changed from 18 to 21, so I had to change the script...

I think every atomic physics lab has at least one laser that the grad students would like to kick out the door.
