Up All Night

PhD Comics has a panel about all-nighters.

I still pull an all-nighter every now and again, though it's certainly harder than it used to be (and I did a Hell of a lot of these in college). Two fundamental differences between my experiences and the description:

(1) I start my work early rather than at O(11pm).

(2) I want to kill everybody when they get up to start their day rather than to kiss them---especially if they wish me a good morning (and doubly so if they have been blasting country music, which was one of the rites of passage in grad school in applied math at Cornell... shudder).

(Tip of the cap to Jimmy Lin.)
