Math Humor

By Bill Amend and available here: https://www.foxtrot.com/2017/09/24/math-hipsters/FoxTrot by Bill Amend - "Math Hipsters" published September 24, 2017 - Jason says: You're using a calculator? Pshaw! Eileen says: What's wrong with using a calculator? Jason says: Nothing, if you're lame. Calculators just spit out answers! There's no craft! No art! No journey to savor! Plus they're digital, so they can only approximate some values. As a result, I bet there are people out there who actually believe Pi equals 3.14159265. That's why for my problem-solving money, nothing beats a slide rule. Eileen says: Math hipsters are so annoying. Jason says: Just look at these analog square roots! Marcus says: You're using a slide rule? Pshaw!
