Being Really Really Evil

Panel 1: How to Succeed at Mathematics by Being Really Really Evil The mathematician (in front of the blackboard with five dashes): There's really only one principle you need to keep in mind to be deadly good at math. Panel 2: Man: Stop rewriting the record books, math is for gearheads only. It's clearly already stunted your growth. When not in Rome, blather blather… Panel 3: The mathematician: It's 5 am and you are clearly becoming incoherent. But hey, two out of three ain't bad. Panel 4: The mathematician: For arbitrary completeness reasons, this comic is also supposed to include the phrase “druggle,” but I've been staying up too late for Mystery Hunt so I don't care enough to bother finishing.

This comic namedrops six puzzles from the 2007 MIT Mystery Hunt. The theme that year involved seven deadly sins. The missing theme of SLOTH is what was intended to fill the blank in panel 1, but sadly this comic outright doesn't make enough sense for anyone to logically conclude that.
