2 things about this...

First... Since when does a syndicated comic have anything in it that Joe American won't understand?!?! Wow! Props to Foxtrot!

Second.... I did't get the (2.71828) part. I don't recall ever hearing of 'e' before. I don't know if it's something I've just forgotten or something I never got taught, but it was new to me. I had to google it. I figured that 2.71828 was e from context, but didn't know why.

Anyhow... it is pretty funny. And clever! Again, props to Foxtrot! Thanks for posting it, as I NEVER would have seen it on my own.

e is usually introduced with Pre-Calc or Calculus. From that point on, it's everywhere. Just as degrees are never used beyond trig (it's all radians instead, and for damn good reason), log base 10 is never used beyond calc. 'Natural log' or "ln" (log base e) is used instead. Hell, all my math profs will write "log" and it's just *known* that it's in base e instead of base 10 (I think mathematica does this also).

Hmm... I must have learned that then, as I took Calc. But I'll be damned if I can remember it. I remember very, very close to NOTHING from calculus. I remember that the beginning of the class dealt with measuring things that got infinately closer to a particular result, but never actually got there. That's about it. >_< I've never had any need for the stuff and it has just faded away into a hazy mist somewhere in the back of my mind.

M = 'm'
2.781828 = e
r^2 = rr
(1/y)^(-1) = y

(x^2)^(1/2) = x
(Force)/(Acceleration) = mass

So, the whole thing becomes:
