A Bit of Maths Humour - The Volume of a Pizza is Pizza
#1
From Today I Found Out (one of my favourite YouTube channels, as well as a website).

Today I found out that the mathematical volume of a pizza is pizza.  How does that work you say?  Well if z = radius of the pizza and a = the height then Π * radius2 * height = Pi * z * z * a = Pizza.

On a different note, three statisticians go out hunting together. After a while, they spot a solitary rabbit. The first statistician takes aim and overshoots; the second aims and undershoots; the third shouts out “We got him!”

And now something to tickle your punny bone:
  • Q: What do you get when you take the circumference of your jack-o-lantern and divide it by its diameter?
    A: Pumpkin Π

  • Q: What is the first derivative of a cow?
    A: Prime Rib!
Quotables:

  • It was recently mentioned on CNN that the new prime number discovered is four times bigger than the previous largest prime…

  • “I’ve heard that the government wants to put a tax on the mathematically ignorant. Funny, I thought that’s what the lottery was!” – Gallagher

  • “A mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn’t there.”– Charles Darwin
Bonus Math Facts:
  • In a group of 23 people, there is about a 50% chance that 2 of the 23 will have the same birthday.

  • Everything you can do with a ruler and a compass you can do with the compass alone.

  • The equals sign (“=”) was in 1557 invented by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde, who was fed up with writing “is equal to” in his equations. He chose the two lines because “no two things can be more equal”.

Of course, St Augustine had a rather dim view of mathematicians!

“The good Christian should beware of mathematicians. The danger already exists that mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and confine man in the bonds of Hell.”

I can agree with the Good Doctor's sentiments.

"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

"In my bed by night I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, and found him not. I will rise, and will go about the city: in the streets and the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, and I found him not.The watchmen who keep the city, found me: Have you seen him, whom my soul loveth? When I had a little passed by them, I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him: and I will not let him go, till I bring him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that bore me." - Cant. 3:1-4

That was a silly movie. I have to watch it again sometime.

I remember a certain religious superior who had a similar view of mathematics. But when it came down to business he wanted the accounting to be very mathematically exact.
