Thanks to Jack and Beth for providing the ideas for today's comic. This is based on true events! Check out the version Beth really wrote here (note that Delta-Delta-Delta and FU are University type stuff).

• Spiked Math is now available on the Swoopy app (Your daily cartoon comics all in one app for Iphone and Ipad).
• Spiked Math now has a youtube channel and I've partnered with a buddy named Maiu who will be helping roll out some mathy type of videos for you all! Our latest videos are: Any feedback is much appreciated and if you have any ideas for mathy videos send them my way to: spikedmath@gmail.com. Quality and mathiness will improve as a function of time.

aaawww :>

I thought F is gonna be a slightly different set ;)

We all have a dirty mind, don't we?

C, the set of pleasant conversationalists, is equivalent to C, the set of complex numbers?

One could define a conversation with another person as the real part and the pleasance as the imaginary part.
Lets take all future-existing people as possible persons and assume that they are infinit many and lets give each person an intervall which represents their drunkenness. Since there are also monologues, the pure imaginary axis is also defined. ;)

Spiked Math was apparently aware of sexual orientation issues and extended the domain and range of the date function.

This is how Sheldon cooper dates...BAZINGAAA!!! :D

A friend of mine is showing me this site right now, and I'd like to say a big, loud "OMG! Geek!" Except I understood everything, so I'll just say : aww, so cute!

I think there's a mistake on the proof of theorem 5.3. The existance of such an element G is not obvious, is it?

Haha I'm the Jack of this comic and you're right. He had to pare down my proof just a tad to format it well I think. In my original response I said something about my limited time, power, and money, and thus there existing a finite number of things which I could do on that night. Now it follows directly from the well-ordering principle.

It's surely a finite set and so G would necessarily exist.

M is empty. That is the mistake in the proof of Theorem 5.3.

Hover over the capital Psi at the bottom center, below the comic. LOL

In Beth's original note: does the S with a vertical line through it stand for "suppose"? Is this a common abbreviation?
