Quantitative work is not mysterious

Some are impressed by quantitative skills. Those of us who were math and physics majors (or in my case, both) are more realistic. Monday's xkcd gives a secret trick in the mouse-over box that pops up that all math and physics majors learn. For those who haven't figured it out, I'm glad that there's a comic strip to reveal the secret.

Also, a few weeks ago, there was a good xkcd about the attitude of some science types towards about interdisciplinary work.
