One-L Lemma

The Left’s axioms are wrong,
so they blame math when their theorems fail

This kind of insulting silliness invites mockery

    2 + 2 = 5 for all sufficiently large values of 2.

    Math really has little importance, unless you are counting the number of cars also going to the concentration camps. Even then, you can probably get close by taking off your shoes.

    When I first saw the post title, I thought you were going to show off your superior knowledge of all things astronomical, along with your mastery of the pun.

    (Nice thought while it lasted…)

    2.4 + 2.4 = 4.8
    Rounding-off,
    2 + 2 = 5

    By the way, the blog has been on fire today.

    It’s almost like this place has been mocking the certain state of a state.

    Technically, 2+2>3 is correct.

    I take it the movie about Jaime Escalante “Stand And Deliver” and the more recent film about NASA’s group of black lady math wizzes “Hidden Figures” arent allowed to be shown in Seattle Public Schools? If you can’t teach them with “ganas,” lead them with guano.

    Thank you, Doug.
    Desire/ganas. I remembered from the film. Forgot the quote about math being the great equalizer:
