Remember those teachers from the 90s who told you that you wouldn't always have a calculator in your pocket in the future? I'd love to smack my smartphone into his face today!

I'm laughing.

The calculator's laughing.

X and Y are laughing.

Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.

Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore.

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.

Nerds who aren't good at math?

Life is going to be rough boys!
