Awesome! (But stamps don't work like that, the +C should be reflected).

Well, I thought the +C stamp was just upside down :)

Oscar you're perfectly right! But it' too funny this comic ahahahah XD

Uhm, Oscar, you DO realize, that "+C" rotated 180 degrees and then inverted looks exactly the same, right

The stamp is backwards. In order to leave + C on the page, it should read Ɔ + : ).

who tried clicking the 'Order Today' button :(

I would actually buy one of those...

To those saying that the stamp is incorrect. The +C is symmetrical about the horizontal. Therefore it can be rotated to achieve +C.

That depends on the font.

lol not recommended

Warning: Not for use in physics tests if speed of light is involved.

why are pirates awesome at integrals?
Because they never forget the sea!!!

Not only does the +C rotate about the centre - the integration constant is arbitrary. You could invent a new symbol for it! It is ellowed.

Love the reference to the waitress!

OMG I just got that thanks to you!

too bad the stamp is reversed

Finally blonde women will have a chance at being as good at math as everyone else...

I am a blonde woman, doing maths at unversity, and unfortunately that is very true. I just got back my calculus homework with 49/50 since i forgot the constant.

Argh, rotation! How silly of me.

And that's why none of my physics students can actually apply integration to a real problem. I have to hammer it into their heads that the +C isn't needed if you use known limits.

For those saying that '+C' can simply be rotated, this stamp sports clearly a forward C, if you used rotated to print the '+C', it would appear tilted backwards, and a little weird. My take, the author did indeed forget about that, or thought doing it mirrored would cause more controversy... but he was wrong :-P
By the way, I loved the troubled faced blonde :-)

I don't get the waitress part?

LOL so funny. Ooh and they give teachers extra red ink for marking with +C. I remember fondly the days when this single letter gave me so much trouble. You could really make money out of this!
