Panel 1:
The mathematician in front of a blackboard: I have had the most terrifying vision of science gone wrong. I have invented an idea so bad that the only ethical course of action would be to destroy this monster.
Panel 2:
The mathematician: But instead of discarding my bad ideas, whit if I irresponsibly released them anyway? What if people really are stupid enough to buy my hazardous waste?
Here goes…
Panel 3:
Snakes on a projective plane
Fano Projective Plane with Snakes
1. Any two points determine a snake.
2. Any two snakes determine a point.
3. There are 3 snakes at every point.
4. Every snake contains 3 points.

There's a great application of the Fano projective plane in comic 30!
