He's implying that the father is currently in bed with the mother.

21 minus 9 months = 20.25
(20.25 + 6) / 5 = 5.25 which means that the baby is currently being conceived.

I read a fun section in an interview with Abhay Ashtekar (theoretical physicist):
Interview said:
(Interviewer):
One of them even made a claim that alternative approaches have been incorporated to string theory and, therefore, it’s the only true theory.

(Abhay Ashtekar):
Joe Polchinski, a very prominent string theorist, he did say explicitly that – this was some years ago, at KITP [Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics] Santa Barbara at its 25th anniversary. He said, well, string theory has incorporated everything. String theory is a little like Microsoft because at that time Microsoft was incorporating everything. He said loop quantum gravity was more like Apple. I thought it was a great complement! [Laughs] He explicitly said so. I said somehow I could accept Apple; at least Microsoft wouldn’t gobble us up!

...the adverb virtually is used to modify a property so that it need only hold for a subgroup of finite index. Given a property P, the group G is said to be virtually P if there is a finite index subgroup HG such that H has property P...
So, finite groups are virtually trivial. What's the big deal?

They are not really trivial!
