I think you have an acute case of math envy.

I'd have to go back to school to understand this, but I can't get anyone to cosine on my loan application.

I am not sure if that adds up.

Y'know, if you'd added one more "sin", you coulda posted this on the RotRl subforum. Oh, well. Hindsight's 1/1 (what? I wanted to sinplify things).

People think they are so acute when they're being obtuse, but they are not right.

I think this needs some pie.

Speaking of which, why do mathematicians continue to insist πr²?

Every pie I've ever seen is round.

Yep. Cake be square!

Is the joke two wrongs make a right? If not, could someone spoiler an explanation for the joke?

I'd type a joke for that, Jo, but I'm pressed for time.

Glad you put that in print for me.

Can we circle back to the original point?

Why should we? What's your angle?

Spoiler:
The joke is about angle types. A right angle being 90 degrees, an acute is less than and an obtuse is greater than 90 degrees. Or I don't get it either.

Two wrongs may not make a right, but three lefts do.

I've seen photos of Chicago-style deep dish pizza pie baked in square pans. I'll agree that Chicago-style is pie, but not that it is pizza.

This whole conversation about pies is irrational.

Seriously, there should really have been a trig warning on this.

Trig is only as accurate as the guy creating the lookup tables for your calculator.

I think I get the point. However, we do need to adjust our frequency to match up.

Sheesh. Next you are going to tell us that sin²θ + cos²θ = 1

Really not doing anything for my view that math is just a bunch of pointless numbers shuffling with no attached meaning at levels most people reach.

If you define what is useful by what most people can understand, you'll quickly find that nothing is useful.

I may have had a snack on the way in though...

As a top-of-the-food chain predator, you should be aware of the dangers of bioaccumulating Juggalo in your flesh; it is often more hazardous than mercury or lead poisoning.

Tell that to your Taco Bell taco, who's mathematical precision and complex formulation go beyond the comprehension of mere mortal men, dragons, and dogs. But aye, sir. There is meaning there. You cannot tell me that you don't see something special glistening in the orange liquid in the "meat." That's math sir, don't you ever question it again!

Avoid the Chaos Theory course, it's taught by Dr. C.T. Hulhu.

Does math evolve in a fashion similar to how human beings evolve?

Some of us are going the other way, thank you.
