"I don't like kids. I didn't even like kids when I was a kid."


Happy International Youth Day! Daria looks less than impressed by the holiday, but d'awww all the same, right?

Today is also the anniversary of the birth of Erwin Schrödinger in 1887. Schrödinger is best known for the thought experiment known as Schrödinger's Cat, in which a cat in a box may be alive or dead--or both. I'm not great with quantum mechanics, but The Angst Guy's fanfic Schrödinger's Tiger should clear everything right up.
