Futility Closet is a brainy, eclectic blog, which should probably be re-titled Mark’s Futility Closet. It has nothing to do with cartoons, but it might. You never know. Sooner or later all topics — odd patents, bizarre crime, improbable history — are bound to cross it’s threshold.
Greg Ross, who stocks the closet, and is likely a closet member of Mensa, loves puzzles of logic and riddles of math. Four subjects in which I’m extremely good at being extremely bad.
Sometimes, however, he offers a post that even I can appreciate, front to back.
