This profile was massively too long, and has been re-thought-out

Mathematics is an incredibly powerful discipline, but with any power comes great responsibility. This comm exists to mock those who attempt to wield that power and fail in embarrassing ways.

Here's the deal:
  • Mock the math, not the person
  • Don't mock someone disabled
  • If you're describing a college-level mixup, background might help us get it, esp in specialized classes in upper years
  • Proofread
  • Have fun!
