Should we use the "jeer" button for the obligatory groan after that kind of pun?

Re: From Slashdot
According to a recent study reported on by the LA Times, 11% of Americans thought HTML was a sexually-transmitted disease.
Those of us who work with software and web servers, know that those 11% are correct

Re: Ted Rall
Yes it is rigged didn't turn out the way I wanted, calling it rules or politics as usual does invalidate that it is rigged didn't turn out the way I wanted.
Fixed that for you.
(I think you meant "doesn't" rather than "does").

Re: Math Joke
Nowhere in π ≠ a/b are a and b constrained to be integers.
I agree with this.
I immediately got the point, but I thought it a very weak joke.
It would have been better if it said "π ≠ j/k" or "π ≠ p/q" because those letters are more traditionally used for integers.

Re: Math Joke
not p and q...those are traditionally used in probability
They are also used by number theorists, as integers.
