Frazz by Jef Mallett for February 26, 2017
Caulfield: The pythagorean theorem is named after pythagoras "gus" of samos. It's one of the foundations of geometry, but there's no solid evidence Gus himself discovered it. See, he didn't just do math in a room by himself. He formed a whole school, and it may well have been one of his students who proved the actual theorem. Kind of like the professor who lands the patent off the work of his research assistants. Mrs. Olsen: Caulfield, what is your point? Caulfield: There's more to a theory than just an educated Gus. Frazz: How'd that go over? Caulfield: My idea didn't square with her idea so it didn't add up to square with anybody's idea.
