Life imitates Overcompensating

On the first leg of my plane trip I was seated next to a guy named Kerry Edwards. Someone alert Jeffrey Rowland that he may have a primary challenge from someone else who is trying to save money on bumper stickers.

    Wow, this post isn’t even close to as neurotic as my recent ones.
    And life is all about overcompensating. You know what people say about the size of a man’s blog?

    I don’t know. You know him better than I do. You tell me.
    I forgot to add: my inferiority complex isn’t even close to as good as Travis’s.

    Man, I leave the blog for a couple days and when I come back I find that a completely innocuous post is being used to discuss my, um, characteristic lengthscale. Remember that, as we say in superconductivity, it’s not the penetration depth that counts, it’s the coherence time.
    And Mason, if you’re looking for neurotic posts you may have to wait until my qualifying exam approaches.

    Not to be pedantic, but the gerund “overcompensating” isn’t in the title; rather, the proper noun “Overcompensating” is in the title, referring to the linked webcomic.

    I should also mention that when I read the post, my mind went instantly to snarky remark mode after I saw “Overcompensating” and it never actually occurred to me that the link on the other end of the post was a comic book of that name. (I’m guessing I would have been far less likely to enter this mode had I made this connection.) I also wasn’t thinking at the time about what your capitalization conventions are.
    Oh yeah, and I’ve been receiving undue influence from Tim lately.
