Mathematical Sense in the Internet

Panel 1: The mathematician: I used to worry that the internet was written by people with no mathematical sense. But after searching for various mathematical terms, I feel much better. Panel 2: The mathematician: For example, if you search for “Bond number”, you get the correct answer ρgr²/σ instead of 007. Panel 3: The mathematician: And “direct product” is about algebraic structures, not about marketing and sales. Amazon.com even has ads for “cohomology” and “Abelian” although I don't really know why. Panel 3: Man (next to a laptop): Hey, it's a “REAL” Player. I know what that means. The mathematician: Why did you have to ruin things?

VLC was always better.
