McSweeneys: Mathematical Translations of Popular Refrains

Personally I don’t find this very entertaining.

@julius: ((sqrt(cos(x))* cos(400*x) + sqrt(abs(x))-0.4)* (4-x*x_^0.1)/2 < 0

I think this is great!

BRILLIANT! D=

I laughed so hard (despite the fact that I only understand like half of the equations) /googles sqrt

If you want to know exactly what it is that you can’t win all of, if you graph the equation (but not the < 0 part) you get

Another one for x = x Refrain: “Duh”

hahaha. This is hilarious.
