For myself, the usual curiosity-stopper is not so much “somebody else already knows”, as “somebody else already knows, and it involves hardcore mathematics”…

(See original post for context, click image for larger version.)

UPDATE: Hello to everyone coming here from LW, and welcome to my artblog, wherein I put up things it amused me to draw. Not much in the way of intellectual content, but hope you like it anyway.
