Comic #2264

1 [caption]: Cambridge, 1961:
1 Professor: Welcome to Cambridge, Miss Goodall. What field are you studying?
2 Young Jane Goodall: I've been inspired to follow in the footsteps of another great Cambridge scholar: Sir Isaac Newton.
3 Professor: Ah, science then?
4 Young Jane Goodall: No. Investigation of fringe theories, the paranormal, and the unexplained.

Yes, of course. Newton has been an inspiration to many investigators of the paranormal and unexplained.

2022-02-23 Rerun commentary: The real Jane Goodall did in fact attend Cambridge University, residing in Newnham College from 1962 while completing her Ph.D. She was allowed to do a Ph.D. despite not having earned a Bachelor's degree.

The nearby Darwin College at Cambridge also claims Goodall as an alumnus, and I've found conflicting claims that she enrolled there in 1962, although Darwin College wasn't even founded until 1964. So I'm not quite sure what's happened here.
