manifolds... i took that course :-)
Man... that's smooth. Despite being something of an in-joke-- the sort of thing only the locals would know. I suppose you could chart it out.
I don't get many of these...but my sister is math-crazy so I directed her here in hopes that she would be entertained. Questionable Content-referred. :]
I love math, and poker, and I'm a Computer Scientist. Now, if you were playing hold-em, you would never say you flop (unless he's the dealer).
I have enjoyed your comics, but this one is really reaching.
Keep them coming. These are just wonderful. Been a while since I did my maths degree, making some rusty cogs turn in my brain as well as giving a good laugh. I have sent a link to a lot of my friends who are maths teachers... I would have loved these when I was in college starting out.
Simply brilliant, good luck :)
Found from ad in QC
Questionable Content? I saw the ad on MS Paint Adventures! Good jokes, although I don't get all of them.
All of them are using terms related to their profession, but the mathematician's was disguised as a pun. Clever, and funny.
hey, just wanted to comment :)
I don't get this. Can someone please explain? (I get Nanny: Raise, and Telemarketer: Call, but not Mathematician: Fold, and Comp Sci: Here's the Flop.)
Mathematician: Manifold. Computers: FLOPS is a measure of speed (FLoating point Operations Per Second)
I love manifolds. A msths lover never wins at poker, but would always win if and only if it'd be maths.
for the Comp Sci instead of FLOPS i was thinking it was referring to a floppy disk.... haha either way it works!
