### my gosh...

If this site had a "this is not cool" forum I would have posted this there. Have you heard about this so called "bikini calculus" where they get these girls in bikinis to instruct guys in math so they pay attention? Do they really think guys will be looking at the chalk board?

Those who choose philandering over math should suffer the consequences!

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

What about girls who are bad at maths? What do they get to help them pay attention?

Put a dollar sign in front of every number. That should do the trick.

We're not. We were busy being disgusted at how those videos were demoralising females. Far too busy being disgusted to do any demoralising ourselves. No. So, yes, quite the opposite, in fact. Yup.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
