    True, Patty. I seriously never have used it in real life, and I’m well over 50.

    I used to hate maths in school. Whilst I do get annoyed at cashiers here in Vietnam that cannot calculate the change for 10 Dollars for a 9-Dollar purchase, I have never had use for most of the stuff I had to learn.

    “x is almost always eleven, and y is almost always nine.” Gee, that explains why your grade is always a D minus!

    Of all the math that I studied, only two forms of it have been necessary in my life: basic arithmetic and statistics. Algegbra? No. Trig? No. Calculus? Hah! Give me a break. I’m not an engineer.

    So that’s why I got a D last year but still passed… took it too seriously.

    Math is good for you, the only way to weed out the weaklings in the herd is to have them take algebra, algebra II, or calculus. By the way Patty, 9 + 11=XY. Ha ha

    It is hard to convince a high-school student that he will encounter a lot of problems more difficult than those of algebra and geometry. E. W. Howe

    Life isn’t about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about. Lindsay Fox

    I still remember asking my high school guidance teacher for permission to take a second year of algebra instead of a fifth year of Latin. She looked down her nose at me and sneered, ‘What lady would take mathematics instead of Latin?’ Nancy Roman

    As long as algebra is taught in school, there will be prayer in school. Cokie Roberts

    When I was at school, I was terrible at algebra and arithmetic, but I was always the best at English and literature. And acting, of course. Joan Collins

    Stand firm in your refusal to remain conscious during algebra. In real life, I assure you, there is no such thing as algebra. Fran Lebowitz

    I would have my mom help me with my algebra and somehow she would come up with answers that had two decimals! I prayed for Cs…

    I think it was in “Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal” that a kid asked the teacher if they’d ever have to use algebra in real life.

    “No, dear, you won’t,” the teacher said. “Only the smart children will.”

    When I went into high school (Catholic), I signed up for general math. Nuns changed it to algebra. When I told them I didn’t want algebra, that it wouldn’t be good for me, they said I was taking Spanish, so I should take algebra. It didn’t make sense then and over 40 years later, it still doesn’t make sense.

    I told my parents about it, but because in those days nuns were next to God, they refused to back me. Needless to say, I struggled through the whole year and what comes after algebra, geometry. I passed but that was about it. And like most people, I never had any need for either one.

    Even Pig is better at math than Peppermint Patty. See today’s Pearls Before Swine.

    One of my favorite jokes recently was a blurb about a domestic terror organization infiltrating our education system called “Al-gebra” and their Weapons of Math Instruction!

    Come on guys. Anyone who does basic carpentry uses algebra to figure angles-whether you realize it or not!
