    So, I have a confession to make; I'm a mathematics geek. Well, chemistry also to a lesser extent, but you get the picture :)

    Any other people out there who appreciate maths for its beautiful logic systems and chemistry for the ways in which it helps us learn about our world's workings? :biggrin1:

    I've been interested in mathematics and its relation to music for quite a while, but only recently made any attempt to actually understand and study it.

    Mathematics = cool. It's the universal language, man!

    Chem = even cooler. Bunsen burners and potions and the periodic table, oh my!

    Autofellatio: Why do you say you "confess" to liking Math? One confesses to crimes. Inherent in the "shame," I think, is the assumption that people on this site -- who presumably enjoy sex, or at least think about it alot -- should not also enjoy academic subjects. Not me. I enjoy both my big organs: my brain AND my dick.

    All that said, I do know that many people (or women I've slept with) have been surprised by the size of my lower organ -- they assume that a Jewish Math nerd may have a big brain, but probably a small penis.

    Sorry, I guess I'm thrice chosen -- and happy for it.

    Math comes straight from the devil. To practice it is to worship satan himself!

    Not so much anymore, but I used to go to the library and check out math books --- my favorite still is The History of Pi by Petr somebody-or-the-other.

    Wow, interesting responses :)

    Ah, well. Must be habit - most people I know find my maths liking to be unnerving :wink:

    Yup, I do enjoy exercising my brain as well as my body and libido... Might as well use everything I have been born with XD

    @ SilverTrain - Chem is cool as well, but not so much as good ol' math, IMO :smile:

    Well I find Mobius strips cool -- and making the beast of the mobius strip even cooler :smile: (at least I used to)

    Well, while I used to be able to make myself into a simple Mobius strip, I was never flexible enough to make one of those double twist Mobius strips

    I only like Math when I could solve the problems. It's very satisfying.

    That would be Petr Beckmann.
    I've read many good things about that book, pinspotter.
    It must be as good as you say.
