I should re-do my 101 things to include the little known fact that I was (am) a math geek. Yes, yes, I took symbolic logic for fun. Two semesters! And I should warn any non-math-geeks trying to decide what math elective they want to take – my friends burned me in effigy after I recommended symbolic logic. I still don’t think it was a hard class and logic puzzles are fun. Matrix theory, on the other hand, is horrifying and should be avoided at all costs.
Anyway, here…. made me laugh.
Reminded me of my favorite math joke. Which, by the way, I tried to find so I could present it correctly but you’re stuck with my memory.
A student walks up to his math professor after class and says, “Excuse me sir, but I didn’t understand the proof on the second problem.”
The professor gazes off into the distance, nodding thoughtfully. After several minutes, he looks at the student and says, “And therefore, x = 3.”
And walks away.
Maybe it’s only funny if you had my math professors.
