It's a nice thought, but...

So I happened upon this comic:

It's a nice thought.  Aww, how sweet.  Math love.  The only problem is, it's a nerdy joke that wouldn't actually work on real nerds.  I read it, and I couldn't help visualizing the scene that would play out if anyone ever tried this trick on me:

...Yeah.  Not quite the intended result.

In other news, I spent the weekend on a ski trip in Vermont.  A great deal of the weekend was based on this comic, which I find hilarious:
So my friends and I would break out in song on the chairlifts (often freaking out the strangers riding with us) and throw our palms in each other's faces.

Um...Yeah...

I SET FIIIIIIIIRE TO THE RAIN, WATCHED IT POUR, AS I TOUCHED YOUR FACE
*virtually touches your face*

  1. Mah faceeeeeeee. I'd like to tell someone I love them in such a nerdtacular way. It would have to be someone who couldn't work it out though.

  3. Oh my god. Your comic about solving the math problem. Literally the first thing that came to mind when I read it! I didn't actually solve it, because I was too tired to, but I thought about it which totally counts. Also, my a Capella group is singing Set Fire To The Rain. I kind of hate the song, but at one point I get to say banana over and over again and it makes me giggle :)

  4. Bahahaha that is SO true! This would only work on nerds of the pre-radical-learning variety. Or nerds who are failures at math but nerdTASTIC at everything else.

    As for the Adele comic, is anyone else reminded of Dan "Werewolf Jetpack" Bergstein? :D

  5. I love the comic. I would have attempted to solve the problem, too.

  6. xD That's so true! It's the joke that seems nerdy to non-nerds, but not nerdy at all to actual nerds. :)
