Roses are Infrared, Ultraviolets are Blue . . .

Valentine's Day is nearly upon us and the folks over at Ironic Sans put together a great collection of scientist Valentines cards. Cards are great, but my favorite things about this holiday (aside from the 75% off candy sales the next day) are the "NECCO Sweetheart" candies that make their appearance only once a year. Over the years I must have seen every last phrase on those little wafer candies, which is why I though it would be a good idea to come up with some new ones. ENJOY!

Got some good ones of your own? Post 'em!


  1. That's really funny, I'm forwarding this to my scientist friends. I think that simply "What's Your Sine?" is great too :)
