Re: Ethnic joke ?

Hi soroban;

That is actually somewhat true. Some Italians who landed on Ellis island had their last names changed by the people checking them in because they couldn't pronounce them. Happened to my great grandfather. Probably happened to other immigrants also.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

That is pretty funny even if it is true! So your Italian descended?

Kool! I wish I was descendant of another country, apart from England, I mean. An awesome country, at least.
