Why mathematics teachers drink

I have given you a lot to read in last Monday’s Blog carnival, so no serious math topic today.  Here are some pictures that will relax you you from your mathematical readings and de-stress you from your mathematical endeavors. You may also want to look at Why mathematics teachers drink 2.

These pictures are all over the internet, so I assumed that there is no copyright violation (hopefully).

The Square Root of Three

The Square Root of Three is a poem I have heard several about two years ago from the movie Harold and Kumar . Enjoy reading it.

The Square Root of Three

David Feinberg

I’m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed
