Maybe I would have done better in Math... If...

this was my math book. So my brother sends me this email. He isn't a boater, but his kid just started high school as a freshman and this is his math book...

Gotta love the old school Perception...

What the heck is that formula anyway? Hopefully for her, it's some kinda way out of that hole she's penciling into and about to get trashed in!

No you wouldn't have done better at math. You would have been too busy looking at the front cover and day dreaming about whitewater to have paid attention.

Everyone's missing the important question here:
What the hell is the "Texas Edition" of an Algebra 1 book?

plus "b"???

Oh, y=mx+b...!? Crap, I've been subtracting b for all these years. So it is Mrs. Beeson's fault for all those swims.

Ace,

I just caught myself insulting about 20 million texans and then deleted it...

Let's just say that it might be a "fuzzy" version.

Just remember that the angle of the dangle is determined by the heat of the meat. From that you derive almost anything.

I always thought the woman on the cover of the Holebeck/Stanely book looked like Peg Bundy.
