[2011-Oct-12] Math Masturbation!

Postby Bicho[DBZ] » Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:59 am

So, is it just me or the comment from the kid in frame 2 is the other way around ?

as it is, it leads to understand that to master masturbation you need to have an attempt to sex? shouldn't it be the other way around ?

if physics -> math what sex -> masturbation then physics == sex math == masturbation

did i understand this wrong? am I retarded?

shouldn't it read something like, without an attempt to master quadratic functions, the search for the truths on the universe is void ? or something like that ?


Thanks and am sorry if there is another post already about this comic.

Bicho you are a terrible person and you should feel bad for many reasons not least of which is because you ignored a prime opportunity to use the word mathturbation

I know a good deal about math, a bit about physics, a lot about masturbation and have a firm grasp of the English language. I have no idea what the hell Bicho was trying to say.

You either have patient friends, or you speak more coherently than you type.

I'll humor you.

The student isn't talking about mastery at all, only meaning and purpose. His statement is that, much as masturbation is empty and meaningless* while sex is meaningful and fulfilling, strictly theoretical mathematics has no point unless it can be applied to physics.

So, you had it doubly backwards.

*I, for one, beg to differ

I agree, Math is boring, Physics is all the fun times.

Disagreed

Calculus rocks, number theory is amazing and topology is mind-bending. No?

This is, of course, a lie. Most of his immediate family came out of the Calculus attack relatively unscathed.
