For MisterPriapus: Anyone else know of any good geeky math sayings?

From MisterPriapus:

A closing thought on one of your closing thoughts relates to a favorite Mark Twain quote, concerning statistics:

"Figger don't lie.
But Liars figger."

From Pseudohippie:

"If you torture the data long enough, it'll say anything!"

"There are lies, damn lies and statistics!"

Anyone else know of any good geeky math sayings?

(yay@Mark Twain)

"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
-Einstein

PHippie~

Given your lag time replying, I'm feeling slightly less abashed at not responding to the honor you bestowed on me... D'oh!

Quote printed on the shirt I'm wearing in my Profile pic:
"Imagination is more important than knowledge" ~'Al' Einstein

From a bumper-sticker on my car:
"According to my calculations, the Problem doesn't exist"

.

Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.



And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!

Lately...
