Justin calls me “The Intellectual” on his blog. How am I supposed to live up to that billing?
Here’s a joke our vector calculus professor told us today. I actually thought it was kind of funny.
A bunch of functions are going on a bus ride together when the bus is suddenly boarded by a derivative. The functions all start trying to run away, since derivatives change functions. One function stays in his place without panicking. The derivative says to the function, “What’s your deal?” The function says, “I’m not scared of you; I’m e to the x.” The derivative says, “Well, I’m d/dy.”
I still think it’s funny. Am I becoming a nerd? Or, worse yet (from my Republican perspective), an intellectual?
Quick, somebody get me a beer and some NASCAR, stat!
