The Bermuda Triangle of Productivity

Bermudatriangle

By Fuchsia Macaree who wrote, "I drew this one day after two unrelated friends complained about how they get sucked into certain websites instead of doing work, which is exactly what I do. I think... this maybe, possibly, maybe happens to some other people as well."

I won't argue.

A4 prints were once available but don't seem to be any more.

Too bad because she'd sell a bunch.

Ask her nicely here: phewsha@gmail.com and if she gets annoyed with you, tell her I made you do it.

Yeah, she'll believe that, right.

Massive computer wallpaper-sized version here for free.

BehindTheMedspeak: Anesthesiologist Manga

A

"Of the major causes causing the collapse of modern medical care, the lack of anesthesiologists is most severe. At times serious and at times comical, this story of university hospital anesthesiologist Hanaoka Hanako realistically depicts her every day work and life. While she faces the struggles of hard work, low pay, and sexual harassment, Hanako is ready every day to administer anesthesia."
