Time-waster of the day: September 17

Have you ever run into that guy you sort of know from CHEM35 lab in the “Tastes of the World” line in the Ratty and been forced to make awkward small talk? And then again in the Omelet Line? And again at the Salad Bar? (Okay, you were really hungry.)

Allie Brosh, of the awesome blog Hyperbole and a Half, sympathizes. Actually, she empathizes. So much so that she composed a chart of the Four Levels of Social Entrapment.

Armed with the power of MS Paint, Hyperbole and a Half suggests to readers a better pain scale, why spiders are scary, and 7 games you can play with a brick. Brosch’s whimsical and surprisingly emotive drawings are sure to bring a smile to your face and occupy hours of your day as you go through the archives.
