After weeks of graphing 3-dimensional vectors and planes, we finally migrated to a less tedious section of our maths syllabus. Today, we were introduced to the infamous ‘i‘. (For the mathematically challenged, the letter i denotes the square root of -1.)
The slightly eccentric professor C. Gilmour thought it fitting to start off the lecture with the geekiest joke on the planet:
i and pi walked into a room.
i said to pi: “Be Rational.”
Pi replied, “Get real.”
The humour caught on like a house on fire, and everyone burst out laughing, including me. Some time during the laugh, I thought to myself, “Boy, when did I become so geeky?”
And then it dawned on me. It is ok to be a geek, because geeks will rule the world one day. As my one friend said it best: Geek it till it MHz!
