What do geeks do to blow off a little steam after the last math team practice before vacation? Here’s what they wrote on the board:
You might want to notice what’s written in Chinese and Hindi (what a surprise), the freehand Sierpinski Triangle, the printed quotations above the board, and the two obvious errors. One error was made by a student; it isn’t particular obvious except to math geeks and apparently went unnoticed, despite the nerdy crowd. The other was made by me at the beginning of the year when posting some info for cryptography; I left it up for weeks before anyone noticed, and I still haven’t fixed it. Fortunately I still have a few months before we start crypto.
