The fun of Mathematics…

Writing about For the mathematicians from Northerner-in-Exile

Im mainly blogging this because I’m not above shamelessly stealing ideas, but also because I want to ask the question..

Mathematicians have many many in-jokes (or Maths-jokes as we like to call them), such as this video, but how many other departments have such jokes that are totally incomprehensible to outsiders?...

do you hear small groups of people giggling about Brownian motion or perhaps mozarts blunders?... or whatever, either way I cant think of any time I have heard another departmental ‘in-joke’ that I couldnt decipher (and I don’t mean that in a “I’m so clever” kinda way, more that the joke was “generic-enough” for me)

it makes me wonder about our department sometimes… and then I think everyone should study maths and that will solve the worlds problems :)
