This happened about 6-8 months ago and the economist was doing differential equations on his way to Toronto for a presentation. The lady who complained was a complete a$$ and delayed the plane multiple hours. Look it up, I would have been pissed as a passenger.
@bowlnmike, It would have sucked anyways:
"OH NO HE CAN WRITE IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIIE!!"
@Azing, I mean, I can't say I haven't done similar math on flights. As an engineering student bogged down with homework, I have to do it on the move.
Always be afraid of the mathematician... we are a rare breed
@SchroedingerPussPuss, not everybody can handle going to infinity and beyond when the root of it all proves the imaginary is real. The weak get lost on tangents.
@Sweet or Sour, more like they get lost in the myriad of contradictory rules that govern math...
@That Bear over there, *grammer. Math wasn't contradictory until the bleating hearts tried to make it so Johnny didn't have to work hard on math. Now after the new math and the new new math kids do not have basic skills that showed it's consistency.
@Sweet or Sour, *grammar(lol) I understood what you were saying. I was just saying that, occasionally, math doesn't make sense even concerning its own rules ( slant asymptotes and lines for a more tame example)
@That Bear over there, the longer I teach Algebra, the more I've come to appreciate it's duality and simplicity. Left/right, up/down, z-plane ideals, concept of infinity being huge but small at the same time (infinite amount of values between 0&1). Fun stuff
@SchroedingerPussPuss, you said it yourself... Mathematicians rarely breed. ;)
@Sweet or Sour, not everyone can decide 0 by 0 and get an answer like Y=1/3*ln|x|*tan(x+3)
@a confused beetle, to quote Revenge of the Nerds... Betty Childs: Are all nerds as good as you?
Betty Childs: How come?
Lewis: 'Cause all jocks ever think about is sports, all we ever think about is sex.
@ZweihanderNLeaveHer, I graphed that at Desmos.com and was amused. Thank you.
Terrorist of math destruction!!
Don't mind me. I'm definitely not bringing any of my math with me on the plane.
This is the reason I fear for the future.
Ah yes, Intelligence. Very foreign indeed
@FuccanA, math, bitch!
In other news who else is tired of buzzfeed
@Personal Jesus, you won't believe how these people react!
Oooo...fvcking nerds...are their any others we don't want? Wait...nvm
@Blackfrost273, don't forget the ones who can spell.
This reminds me of when I did an economics project during a flight to Poland
I just finished watching the imitation game and then I see this. I feel like the world is trying to tell me something about codes, I just can't break it.
@Darth Knight, love that movie
I know a foreign script!
