Okay okay, but this is actually a really funny physics joke. The account that posted that is called Fermat's Library. Fermat's principle is something in optics that describes how light takes the shortest temporal path to get from point A to point B. It's the basis of the theory of why light refracts (changes angle) when going between different materials. So it's funny that they'd post an equation that's totally not the quickest way of getting something that's super easy to just know.
@idubbbz, I take that as a compliment, thanks!
@unknownjanitor, it is a compliment
@unknownjanitor, im not nerdy enough to just know this but im nerdy enough to find it funny, i want more knowledge damnit
@Guy Fawkes, come get a degree in physics, we're always indoctrinating
Ah yes, numbers. The letters of math.
@ThatAnnoyingStoner, John mulaney? Lol
@thecraftywalrus, I’m going to respond to that with the most famous saying a duck has: Quack quack.
@ThatAnnoyingStoner, and the letters are the numbers of math
Or 88/12 or 888/112 or 8888/1112 or 88888/11112 or 888888/111112 or 8888888/1111112 (I can keep going if you want)
@bhohfeld, please, continue.
@bhohfeld, no, we believe you.
But you can't argue, his math checks out...
Here’s a good one 8+0=8.0
