"With great power comes great responsibility" [Jul. 21st, 2009|12:33 am]
Lindsey Kuper

Am I allowed to use a Stan Lee quotation as a section heading in an academic paper? Say, for instance, a Scheme Workshop paper about things you shouldn't do with CPS macros?

...No reason.

I don't see why not.

I managed to sneak a version of my usual web avatar (the angry pink version of Zen-Chan from Bubble Bobble) into SIGGRAPH.

Easter eggs can be a nice way to liven up a paper.

Agreed. It might make people groan, but at least it won't make them yawn.

Of course! In fact, you should, since... it totally makes sense here :)

Alex maintains that people who read more comics than I did growing up might not be quite as amused by this as I am.

This, of course, is coming from the guy who wanted me to find a way to incorporate the phrase "gotta catch 'em all" into the paper title.
