Puppy hiatus! Reruns daily; new comics restart 1 January 2019
1 Terry: So how do we break into a lab where nuclear material is being held?
2 Simon: Ha ha! It's a university lab! We just wander in.
3 Terry: Bluff our way in? Won't we need to carry some books or look important and self-confident?
4 Simon: It's a physics lab. The less important you look and the less like you know what you're doing, the more you'll blend in!

One time I was visiting Würzburg in Germany, and looking for things to do I discovered that Wilhelm Röntgen, the guy who discovered x-rays, was the chair of physics at the University of Würzburg, and his lab was still there, converted into a museum.
So my wife and I wandered into the university grounds, found the physics building, and strolled in to find the lab. It was down a corridor, past some rooms where we could see students taking classes inside, and around a corner. This historic lab was signposted, and the room was open for us to wander int and look around. Except the lights were off, and nobody was there. So we turned the lights on, went in, and had a good look around. The whole time we were there, a good half hour or so, nobody came in to see what we were up to. Here's a photo I took:
When we left, we turned the lights off again. It was kind of weird that this incredibly historical and significant place seemed to have no security whatsoever. But also kind of cool.
 Which is where my mother's family is from.
