A sailor knot walked into a bar and the bartender said we don't serve your kind here.

The knot left disappointed, retied himself, tousled his hair and went back inside.

The bartender said: "Hey weren't you just in here?"

and the knot said: I'm a frayed knot."

IDK if you guys watch Doctor Who at all but I can tell you that all these conversations are entirely in character, when I read these I can even remember Peter Capaldi's classic, old-man smart-ass attitude when he's telling the punchline like in the show.

If ever in these times you find yourself without something to do for like two weeks (maybe three if you sleep) watch the newer seasons of Doctor Who (starting with Series 1 near the top of the page just below Series 2; do note they are listed in order from bottom to top).

Just out of curiosity, in the meme you attached, I recognize British actor Peter Capaldi, but I don't recognize the actress. Do you happen to know who she is?

Well, they show it here on the late night shift of a minor channel. Basically the shows from Christopher Eccleston until Jodie Whittaker, currently Matt Smith and Jenna. I think the Whittaker shows are not fully translated, yet, since they aired only a few episodes before they began to repeat the old ones.

Flattened view of a tetrahedron?
Three-dimensional student arrangement to fit more students in classrooms... I should suggest that.

Shouldn't that be: "7/16" - 10 cents"?
The 10 cents was borrowed from his buddy. Since he owes 10 cents, the negative value is implicit. This is why math is important. :woot:

A favorite probability problem. A buys two tickets, who gives 1 to B, who gives it to C, who rips it it half. Calculate everyone's expectation value.

Whenever someone got things reversed (like saying North Main St instead of South Main St.) and subsequently made a correction, one graduate student I knew would say "##Z_2## acts again".

No! This is wrong in the last row for mathematicians.

It has to be ##\pi = \dfrac{C_\circ}{D_\circ} \notin \mathbb{Q}.##

B and C have spent nothing and can win nothing so their expectation is zero. A is out $2.18 for the ticket they kept (assuming SMBC's number is the expected loss on a ticket) plus the raw cost of the second destroyed ticket. Or am I missing something?
