have a good laugh !

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public
school teacher was arrested trying
to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor,
a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, Attorney General John Ashcroft said he believes
the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He is being charged by
the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-Gebra is a fearsome cult," Ashcroft said.

"They desire average solutions by means and extremes,
and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute
value. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer
to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined they belong to a common
denominator of the axis of medieval
with coordinates in every country.

As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say,
"There are 3 sides to every triangle'."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said,
"If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have
given us more fingers and toes!"

:D :D

Nice little one Herve! :)

But Algebra (as well as Algorithm...) do come from arabic (and some from people who lived in Irak).

And please... stop calling the US crazy! I was shocked when I heard certain comments that non americans said after 9-11. I won't even mention them! What is being said here isn't as bad, but really... the world doesn't seem to understand!

Thanks you! :)
