He said probability and trigonometry is very important. Again, he said abstract algebra is very boring. Then again, he solved two problems very brilliantly.

He is kind of fat and a little handsome. He has no beard. And kind of a boring voice.

I am sure he is bobbym in disguise

Probability and Trig are very important, Abstract algebra is boring and so is group theory. I do not solve problems brilliantly, brilliant is a term used by math types. It is heavily dependent on their concept of beauty.

Kind of fat? I am more than a little handsome. A boring voice? No way, just ask the neighbors. All the m's are big blowhards therefore we have booming voices.

I do not wear disguises, I can frighten the kids here without them. You are beginning to suffer from the "The Many bobbym Syndrome." I too used to believe that the world would be a better place if their were millions of bobbym...

Guided by that principle, Brigadier General Bashem commisioned the labs here to clone me by a similar process that Lucas envisioned in his movies. Soon there were many thousands of them in captivity in more than 20 underground labs.

Needless to say, they were too smart for the security force that was created to contain them. A battle took place and they killed their gorilla faced captors and made it to all corners of this planet...

As soon as they established themselves they tried to do computational math and that gave their position away. General Bashem and his friends down below hunted them down and exterminated them. Only I remain to tell this story...

So you see, your teacher is not a bobbym. To be cured of TMbS you must put on the ruby slippers, tap them together 3 times and say, "there is no place like home, there in no place like home, there is no place like home."

He did not say that he has done the problem brilliantly. I imagined he has.

Did you try to be cured for TMbS?

The cure always works too!

Okay but you will have a hard time proving that I am your math teacher.

I do not know how to procure Ruby slippers. What are they?

Dressed like that, she clearly thinks she's a fairy princess => a star!

Hi bob;

Don't you think it is bobbym who is teaching there in our school?

The star is on the end of the scepter of Glinda. She is using it to point to the ruby slippers.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

bobbym thinks set theory is boring but he is still teaching us the same at school

They are no longer for sale.

That is further proof that is not me.

You have to teach it in order to get paid since it is in the curriculum

Oh, as long as I am being paid I will continue to teach it. Hope you like the material.

Yep, you have a second class with us tomorrow. The last day you only spoke about what things are important.

You did a geometry problem.

What are your views about Mr. R. Amin?

Geometry? Yecch! I like Gebra.

Mr. R. Amin? I was probably talking to him the other day.

You saw that the students are not math oriented, so you explained how math can help them better grades.

He set our question paper. I have the information that I was the only guy to be able to do the problem on probability, is that true?

If you used M you would be able to.

I said Gebra, not Zebra.

hi Agnishom,

Don't you think it is bobbym who is teaching there in our school?

I think not. It is a long commute from Vegas to India and I'm pretty sure he hasn't invented an instant matter transmitter yet.
