If you're a grad student, were once a grad student, know a grad student, or just enjoy hearing about all the crap that grad students have to go through, and you haven't read Jorge Cham's Piled Higher and Deeper Comics (aka PHD Comics), then you should probably just skip work early and go do that for the rest of the day.

And for those of you already familiar with Cham's series, you'll be happy to hear that he's collaborated with grad students from Caltech to bring the characters of his comic strip to the big screen in the form of Piled Higher and Deeper (the movie).

The film debuted yesterday and will be showing at college campuses around the world in the coming weeks. Check out the movie's website for the latest screening schedule and more info about the film, the cast, and how you can set up a screening on your own campus.
