• I posted this childs joke a few months ago: Why was 6 afraid of 7?
• Linda Joy
Because 789. Seven's always been my lucky number. But I'm seeing 9 as fairly lucky as well in this scenario!
• Anoname
Lol. Is it getting hot in here again?
• Linda Joy
I'll admit in all my many years I've never seen that joke from this perspective before!
• Linda Joy
But in this scenario I think the joke should start why was 6 jealous of 7. Especially since 6 is so often intimately paired with 9. I bet you never thought math could be this fun!
• Anoname
There's a reason so many people love the number 69.
• B.H. Wilson
• Linus van Pelt
But you are wrong., 6 was not scared because 7 8 9. Six is scared because It was 6 7 8
• Why do mathematicians always confuse Halloween and Christmas? Because 31 Oct = 25 Dec You may curtsey......
• Anoname
I don't get it.
• Linda Joy
Oh, octal! NOW I get it! That took a few minutes! If it had been Base 16 or base 32 I think I'd have caught on more quickly.
• After a talking sheepdog gets all the sheep in the pen, he reports back to the farmer: "All 40 accounted for." "But I only have 36 sheep," says the farmer. "I know," says the sheepdog. "But I rounded them up."
• I wish I was your differential equation  homework... because then I'd be really hard and you'd be doing me on your desk.
• Linda Joy
What would I be wearing? LOL
• LobotomyClub
• Linda Joy
Lol good answer! I have so many! Which style do you prefer? Favorite color?
• LobotomyClub
Do you have one that's pink and squiggly like this?: https://tinyurl.com/y7e9pbpk
• Linda Joy
I can't get the link off the side of the page. It keeps going all the way down to the bottom I'm sorry
• Linda Joy
but hey this is the virtual world sure I got a hat just like that! I love to wear it when I think especially when I think deeply!
• LobotomyClub
• Linda Joy
Lol another witty and resolute comment! Like this? https://www.etsy.com/listing/452977580/crochet-pattern-the-brain-beanie?&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_c-craft_supplies_and_tools-patterns_and_how_to-other&utm_custom1=3436b95b-72ce-4279-90cb-62da19bbf0f3&gclid=CjwKCAjwrO_MBRBxEiwAYJnDLN5iB9WzukNzcOLBg6CpTg7K1AYBlQ3LzjdfismV8PUn1TWImg54XhoCKyMQAvD_BwE ? I should learn to make that! I kinda liked the pink one! But we don't have a lot of use for a hat here. Is it cold where you live?
• Linda Joy
This would be cool for the homeless shelters, too! Thank you! I appreciate you!
• Common Core math is a joke. Is that what you're looking for?
• Linda Joy
Not exactly, but thank you for your input!
• Those parallel lines have so much in common it's a shame they'll never meet.
• no, dont know of any
• There's a fine line between a numerator and a denominator.

so true!! haha
• A man who was a tourist guide for underground caverns was taking people through and said , this cavern is such and such millions of years old...but he added about 22 years.. someone said, and 22 years? He said, yes, when I began this job 22 years ago it was such and such millions of years old.

lol
• There are 10 kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who do not.

I just saw that one the other day!! Was it on NCIS? or Criminal Minds? Another good one!! Thank you!
• bostjan64
Maybe. I heard it first probably 25 years ago, though, from my math teacher in school. Here's another - A rancher lost his cattle, so he hired a math student to get them back in the barn. At the end of the day, the farmer asked the student how many cattle he returned, and the student said 40. The cattle started to worry, and said, "but I only had 36 head to start!" The math student then reminded the farmer that he was hired to "round them up."
• Linda Joy
I posted one similar to this 3rd answer down. Does it frighten you just a little to know you think like me? haha
• bostjan64
I wonder if our math teachers had the same math teacher. It's less rare than it sometimes seems.
• Linda Joy
I had at least 20 different math teachers!
• bostjan64
Is that 20 in base ten? Maybe that twenty, or maybe that's 32 if you wrote 20 in hexadecimal.
• Linda Joy
Base ten. But really most people have a different math teacher every year, right? I went to one school for two weeks! I based that number on the fact I transferred 20 times before graduating. 15 different schools.
• A physicist and a mathematician are sitting on the porch and observe two people walk into a house. A while later, three people leave the house. The physicist says "the initial conditions must have contained some error." The mathematician responds: "If one more person enters, the house will be empty."

lol good one!

• Alcohol and calculus don't mix. So don't drink and derive.
• You got it wrong. Pi are round not squared.
• Linda Joy
Hmm... Pizza and cake can be square, why not pie? Donuts aren't square either.
• bostjan64
In Terre Haute, Indiana, donuts are square: https://www.tripadvisor.at/Restaurant_Review-g37574-d4274213-Reviews-or180-Square_Donuts-Terre_Haute_Indiana.html ... most everywhere else they are round, though.

• Al-Gebra is a terrorist organization.

I'm sure plenty of high school freshmen would agree! Algebra is anglicized from arabic "al jabr," so it sounds arabic because it's an arabic loanword. I've heard that it means "bonesetting," but I'm a little confused by the common etymology. Jabar means ruler, so it seems to me more likely that the etymology traces back to that somehow. The modern arabic word for bone is al eizam.
• 1. I asked my teacher to explain circumference to me, but he just kept talking around in circles and never came around to any point. 2. The instructions said to heat the oven to 350 degrees, but I turned it up to 360 degrees, because I wanted the pizza to cook all the way around. 3. What do you get when you cross a bat with a mountaineer? Error - you cannot take the cross product of a vector and a scalar. 4. Rene Descartes walks into a pub. The bartender asks him if he would like the special, and Descartes replies: "Hmm, I think not" and instantly disappears.

Bats transmit disease = vector.

Hafthor Björnsson might claim otherwise. At 6'9" and 24 1/2 stone, I doubt many would argue with him.

(From the link) "The US is no longer on the gold standard, thanks to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's move to cut the ties between the US dollar and gold in 1933 to help stimulate the economy during the Great Depression." - That wasn't the reason. Removing something of value (gold) that backs the value of currency and replacing it with fiat currency (Federal Reserve Note) does nothing but cause inflation. FDR was a Democrat - destroying America is in their blood.
