When I set k equal to 0,
I can be a mathematical hero:
If I should decide
By k to divide,
Then it's clear that 1 = 0.

A calculus student upset as could be
That his antiderivative just didn't agree
With the answer in the book
Even after a second look
Indeed it was off, but by a constant C.

There once was a number named e
Who took way too much LSD.
She thought she was great.
But that fact we must debate;
We know she wasn't greater than 3.

A challenge for many long ages
Had baffled the savants and sages.
Yet at last came the light:
Seems old Fermat was right--
To the margin add 200 pages.

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.

There's a lady in Swiss,
Who thought skating was a bliss
but a change in her fate
came when her skate
came when she finished it with sumthing like this
