S-Kro's spicy illustrated FML
Hi gang! It's Friday, and tomorrow it's Christmas eve. We were supposed to have a Christmas-themed illustration as per usual, but something went wrong so we're having a regular illustration. It is food-related though, so it'll strike a chord with anyone looking to try out something new this Christmas dinner, especially if it contains spices.

This week, S-Kro is back amongst us for another great scientifically correct illustration. He has already been on here many, many times, so you could say he's part of the family.

His illustrated FML: The spicy one
If anyone asks, just tell them that you don't know.
Well, I'm answering your questions.
The south of France.
36! (Yes, I've grown a year older since my last illustration for FML)
I'd have to the one explaining Star Wars scientifically, just because it's the last one I posted. Speaking of which, if anyone knows Roland Lehoucq (the astrophysicist that I quote in the comic), I'd be glad if they'd show it to him.
Hmmmm, there's quite few, so it's going to be tough to mention everybody. I'd say that the first that come to mind are Maëster, Coyote, Gotlib, Eric Powell, Toriyama, Todd MacFarlane, Greg Capullo, Eric Herenguel, Fabcaro, Julien Solé, Mo CDM, Monsieur le Chien…
I discovered that science could be exciting and fun thanks to Bill Bryson's books in 2014, and I decided, at my very humble level, to launch myself into popularizing things that I understood (meaning not a lot, actually). I also read a lot of books and scientific articles during my spare time. And comic books too, obviously.
I was going to say something vulgar…
Loads of things. The list would be too long.
Simple things: a child's smile, my friends' laughter, the smell of a forest, the roundness of a pair of breasts…
In the extraordinary people sense, I'd say Nikola Tesla, Richard Feynman or Stephen Hawking, but he's crap at basketball. And to avoid being a misogynist, I'd add Marie Curie, due to two Nobel prizes and lives saved on the battlefields!
"Ornithorynque" (French for Platypus), because I know how to spell it, and because it's worth loads of points at Scrabble.
Freshly cut grass.
The person who has to eviscerate trout or a worker in a factory line, because I hate repetitive tasks.
For the record, it would be a compilation with bands like Motörhead, Slayer, Nirvana, Bowie (yes, that's not a band, I know), Queen, Metallica, classical music (I strongly recommend the 3rd movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, I'm not kidding, it's really good). For the book, "A short history of nearly everything" by Bill Bryson, don't miss it.
I don't have anything to sell, not this week anyway…
"Hey, so is this how I created the Universe... Oh shit, I just deleted my back-up!"
That's it for this week. Before we all leave to go and enjoy various Christmas and or/or holiday season parties, here's a few Christmas gifts !
- A cat cuddling a magic crystal to obtain evil powers
That'll be all for this week. We hope you have a merry Christmas, and we'll see you next year! And remember to be excellent to each other, despite the family meals that can turn into shouting matches after too much eggnog. Ciao!
