    School Teacher Arrested!

    A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.



    'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code names like “X” and “Y” and refer to themselves as “unknowns” but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, “There are 3 sides to every triangle.“



    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, “If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.” White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President. It is believed that another Nobel Prize will follow.

    I hated this movement while I was in school.

    That sounds like a quote from George Bush, or even more so, Dan Quayle, not Obama.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Boy...am I glad that guy is off the street. Al-gebra has no business in our culture! I was exposed to that movement 3 times my first go 'round in college. Finally joined just for the T-shirt. Once out of college, I renounced my association with that awful cult.

    Al-Gebra movement tried to lure me but I resisted, to finally join Ge-O-Metry which I found more interesting after LiT-Erature and Phil-Osophy. They use the same weapons but their eficiency is better.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Al-Gebra and Ge-O-Metry were no match for me...defeated them both...now La-Place-Transforms and Fourier-Series are my nemesis...I aced the classes, but to this day, have no idea what they are
