Old Cruft

Panel 1: The mathematician: Congratulations on graduating! Man: That's right, now I'm officially an old cruft. The mathematician: Uh oh. I just realized something. Panel 2: The mathematician: I see cruft people. Panel 3: The mathematician: Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're cruft. Panel 4: Man: How often do you see them? The mathematician: All the time. They're everywhere.

At this point I graduated from MIT. I would continue to contribute comics for another year even though I was actually at Stanford. Despite Jorge Cham's success at writing comics for the Stanford Daily, I was never motivated to write for that publication due to its titular bug/feature of updating daily rather than the Tech's semi-weekly.
