Dr Nick Kim was one of my favourite lecturers at Waikato University, largely for his sense of humour – he would randomly put up cartoons he’d drawn or articles from the Annals of Improbable Science in the middle of his lectures. 

He also had more interesting topics to teach about than the rest of the lecturers.  I remember going to the gun range one class, and shooting guns so we could later analyse gunshot residue.  (I found the actual analysis to be boring, but collecting the samples was fun!)

I still have the calender of Nick Kim’s cartoons that the Science Department published one year.  (This was one of them.)  More sciency cartoons can be found at Strange Matter.
