Algebra: Stupid Subject

I would like to thank Zoe for the lovely crown on my page. I think I look good in a crown, and it fits my personality since I consider myself royalty!

Today I saw an article in the news about a freshman who shot himself in front of his algebra class. This is a very sad bit of news, and far too many teen-agers choose to try to commit suicide. In this case, it was not successful, and hopefully the young person will make a quick and complete recovery. However, this dog, as a public service, wants to remind dogs and their humans to avoid algebra as much as possible. It is an evil subject and no one should be subjected to it. My own human Mommy took it in high school and college. Luckily, she did survive, but I'm sure it was a miracle that she and her classmates did survive such an ordeal. I happen to be an expert at math or arithmetic or whatever the humans call it. Here is one of my problems that I have solved:

If you have 6 dingo bones, and Angel Zoom Smokey wants a dingo bone, how many would you get to keep if you are sharing them?

The answer: I get 6 and Angel Zoom Smokey gets zero.
I know this is odd, but school algebra would say each of us get 3. How stupid is that? Algebra does not even take into consideration that I'm bigger and have bigger teeth which I will use when necessary to protect my dingo bones.

No wonder modern kids have so many problems. They are being taught stupid stuff by stupid humans. I think that teaching should only be open to dogs because having human teachers is just stupid!

Your logic made growlmy BOL...and pawppy and my unfurbros are engineering geekheads...good thing they didn't/don't have firearms, well at least I don't think they do...poor student who thought that was what he needed to do fur attention...sigh...hope he gets the help he needs when he recovers, maybe he needs to study something non-stressful like basket weaving...

Shouldn't you be on a train headed towards X town while the Y train is headed towards you and then the you arrive at:

"The answer: I get 6 and Angel Zoom Smokey gets zero".

That's how Mom says she remembers algebra, only she thinks she missed the part where all the apples and oranges are in there, but that might be geometry. She says she can't remember.

I never understood why the humans even bother to learn algebra unless they are going somewhere on a train because that seems to be what many of the problems are about. I, being a genius dog once sat in an algebra class, and my answer was that I would have already been there because I would have flown. There aren't even a lot of passenger trains in the United States to ride. I guess someone forgot to point that out to the math teachers.
