I tried....I love English as much as I hate Math. :P<br />I tried. I really did. But I somehow go blank when I see numbers on the board.

If you have a job where you need to work out the circumference of circles, you'll remember the formula because you use it all the time, and you'll use a calculator anyway because I wouldn't want to rely on figures that someone has worked out by hand. I don't need to work out circumferences, and so I don't remember how to do it. My life isn't blighted because of it.Mike Ravenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12178886916843414499noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5072871925611419675.post-78965803160408736992015-02-02T12:42:11.060+00:002015-02-02T12:42:11.060+00:00My wife and both sons are very good at math, and I...My wife and both sons are very good at math, and I am numerically impaired. So, I feel math is over rated, people who are good at math are dull, and uninspiring. Do you think Coleridge was worried about geometric progressions, Steinbeck probably never figured the circumference of a circle. Math, who needs it? That's my motto.Tim Clarkhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03697218207621300874noreply@blogger.com
