We've got a lecturer who is completely mental too, by the name of Dr Chillingworth. I'll drag up a few Chillingworth-isms for you:

(With reference to green coloured paper) "If you run out of green i can sort you out"

"All we need is some mathematical lubrication"

"We're going to talk about sets.....Not sex, sets. Sadly."

"All the dinosaurs in the corrider are green. To prove the negation of this statement all you have to do is find me a purple dinosaur on campus and bring it to me."

"So if someone jumps out of a bush and hijacks you at knifepoint and asks you to prove that f(x) tends to a limit, you'll now be ok!"

"That's right, we use the squeeze theorem, otherwise known as the sandwich theorem. Just don't squeeze a sandwich or you'll get covered in tuna mayonnaise"

:rofl:
:lol: Maths lecturer humour is the best. One of my favourites:

"...and this was used by Galois to prove that quintics cannot be solved by radicals... or anyone else for that matter"

Wow, funny maths jokes. About unfunny maths jokes. Basically, one of the lecturer was defining axioms for real numbers and he said there is 13, but then he changes it saying "I started from zero". Anyway, that wasen't funny and nobody laughed.

there's always a role for you in the anti-stand up business if the maths doesn't go to plan

When I was younger I would pretend Sonic was racing against our car on the road and he was grinding and jumping every rail and electric pole.

I stil on occasion do something very similar to this except when it snows and with an Arbitrary Person on a snowboard, although your having Sonic makes me feel outdone. ""

You're not doing it right.

Also, loving how everyone is on strict Maths-related chat since we all got told off. Plus we seemed to have found a few new people so it's not all bad.

Thats assuming the people who I have had sex with is non empty. Lol, empty set.

P.S. On a unrelated note, if I was gay it would be hundred times easier to make it non empty. But, then I think I'm not gay.

P.P.S. On a similar note, I would rather be able to see in 4 dimensions than have sex. But, lol R^4, is just copies of R^3 with something funny done to it. But, lol just can't see the other dimension.

I don't like the idea of a perving Simplicity. He would probably find you in the shower, and then shout stuff about the RH while you're at your most naked just to weird you out. Soon you would associate being naked with Maths, and lectures would get very awkward.
