    I don't find that funny. Call me boring but I can't think off any way that this will sound funny .
    Apparently it's trending on social media somewhere. I'm guessing there's pictures involved and some 'funny' words.

    That's what it is so they use tactics to make smart people look dumb. Hence my dislike of those tactics.

    I never saw that personally, but I know I wouldn't like it if I did.

    I had a quick skim through. Though I think the idea is great as I think creativity is a good thing. I don't see this as a replacement for real learning though. Things like this have been around for some time. There's always some one somewhere saying things are being done better, usually in a liberal arts kind of way...

    Oh, it's pretty prevalent in the US. Lots of attacks on education in the US, especially the sciences.

    You know what an academic is do you not? Someone who is a professional in a subject. Typically called 'professors'.

    However, any subject that requires some level of maths ability and harder knowledge seems to get picked on by those who believe they are superior in other ways. It's fairly common. Even though there was this 'geek' love, there's still disdain for the well learned.

    If you don't understand what I wrote that time I give up.

    That's too bad now. I know its common, but there isn't much we can do about it

    It's called education. That's how you fix it. You praise those who do well and encourage those who don't. Unfortunately our culture seems to glorify stupidity instead.

    The joke is making fun of engineers as they apparently don't know maths...
    That's like saying soldiers can't shoot. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't find it funny.

    I'd like to see the pictures to see if there is any humour in it. I've seen some funny engineering jokes over the years but I'm curious to see what non engineers have to say since these are probably the people making the jokes.

    But how does that have anything to do with maths? Also I highly doubt that had anything to do with an engineer... It's not that funny....
