She's also smiling. She clearly has no idea what she's doing.

She sold the other 133 of them into medical experiments. Happens all the time, I guess. I first heard of it from Monty Python.

She's not catholic, she snuck in there during weight. I mean mass....
Hence why she's so smugly smiling.

If I remember correctly for all intents and purposes, on Earth mass = weight, but as the cartoon points out weight changes based on local gravity. A 1kg mass of iron might weigh ~250 grams (0.25kg) on the moon, but it is still 1kg of mass. Mass is important for lots of physics calculations, I think weight is more useful for engineering where you need to know load limits and stuff.
I hate these sort of comics, if you are going to teach people something do it properly :(

Mass - M = LogiC

Oh, how much fun you are. By the way, 1kg mass if iron might weigh ~0.167kgf, not 0.167kg (and definitely not 250g).
Sheldon Cooper (7 Aug, 2013)
no, on earth mass is not = weight, weight is about 10 times your mass, e.g. 50 Kg (mass) = 500 N (weight).

No, no it does not. You're still on this site pretending to be smart? Same with Trollolol (he's arguably worse). Jeezus. I go away for nearly a year, and then I return to y'all having never left. *facepalm*

"Confusing this stuff up"? English much?

Someone needs to send James R a "Difference between English and gibberish" cartoon.

A comma is a very helpful tool in letting your readers pause from longer sentences and eliminate fragment sentences.

WTF does "confusing up" mean?
Captain Euphenism (10 Aug, 2013)
I think they meant something else.
