"Half this game is ninety percent mental."

  Yogi Berra

Dear Mr. Shannon,

Just wanted to let you know that another day has passed and I didn’t use any of the algebra you taught me.

That makes 16, 790 days in a row. (Multiplication I do use.)

Dear Algebra,

Please stop asking me to find your X.

Math Is A Religion

Calvin: You know, I don’t think math is a science. I think it’s a religion.

Hobbes: A religion?

Calvin: Yeah. All these equations are like miracles. You take two numbers and when you add them, they magically become one new number! No one can say how it happens. You either believe it or you don’t. This whole book is full of things that have to be accepted on faith! It’s a religion!

Algebra

I was actually good at math until they started to mix letters in with the numbers. Letters belong in language classes.
