I remember the gatherings in the common room of my department as an undergrad- certainly not the whole reason I became a math major, but it helped. (The reason I'm no longer working in math has to do with biographical/personal difficulties with which I won't bore anyone except to say it's another story. But I've been wanting to say that it's good to see a webcomic that doesn't treat mathematics as that "ewww" subject. (No offense intended to anyone...)
Not an oxymoron at all.
Looking forward to future episodes.
