geekery

one of my tulane students just posted this on fb:

:-( + :-) = ??

three responses were :-| . one response was :-() .

my response? :-^2

because in math, you do the parenthese first. ( + :-) in this case. treat the blank as a zero and you have zero plus :- which is simply :- . the equation then turns into :-(:-) or :- times itself, or :- squared.

nerd and proud of it. i'm a good kisser too. wrap around that contradiction of stereotype.

As soon as I saw your response, I knew exactly what thought process brought you there. :-)
