    now i am terrible at math, really horrific. i guess you can divide numbers by other numbers!? craziness!
    My math skills are limited to what I can do on my fingers and a calculator... kinda the same philosophy I have for not driving; "if I can't get there with what I got, I don't need ta go there."

    I like to understand stuff, the only time i hate math is when i see something i can't figure out. But as soon as the light bulb turns on, i feel like i won the lottery.

    So no i don't hate math, I hate not being able to figure things out by myself. But that applies to everything and math happens to be one subject where i have to put alot of effort to understand.

    Math was always my best subject...up until 2nd grade.

    After that period, my skills evaporated due to a lack of cultivation on my part as well as my schools'. I was enrolled at a private religious institution that adhered to a horribly inadequate program which confused the heck out of me. On top of that, my "teachers" were morons; whenever I would request help, they couldn't elaborate on a concept...

    I never really acquired a good understanding of the basics, so I haven't had much fun with algebra and the like. I have a strong aversion to math now and I doubt it will ever go away.

    Go calculators!

    2=1
    I can prove it.

    Given x=y
    x-y=0
    2x-2y=0
    2x-2y=0
    2(x-y)=(x-y)
    (x-y)
    2=1

    Hehe clever proof

    "It followes the rules, but conflicts logic", I like that

    You must somehow leave room for comments in your jokes tho, otherwise I dont know how to respond

    I as a natural scientist am mostly busy with putting up equations in the first place. And I produced a lot of 2=1 already

    (x-y)/(x-y) isn't 0 or 1. It's not even defined. (You're dividing by zero.)

    Many of you are concerned with the practicality of math. Am I the only one who likes doing math for its own sake? The ideas behind it are profound.
