Ask Bweinh! Poll — Least Favorite HS Subject

This edition of the Ask Bweinh! poll is sponsored by Air Transat, the worst airline in the world!

Just listen to what another satisfied traveler had to say:
“[The change in flight] was bad enough but to receive a cold inadequate sandwich and a cookie was not sufficient sustenance . . . The sandwich consisted of an elongated bun, some shredded lettuce and a thin slice of roast beef, probably less than 1 oz. One steward in particular was very unfriendly and rebuked us when we asked for 2 water and 2 coffee stating he only heard one coffee ordered. He was reluctant to give us the other cup of coffee. The staff in general did not have a good attitude on this particular flight.”

I despise you, Air Transat.

    You guys are sissys. Math is cool!

    My favorite part of this poll is how math is #1, and a specific type of math (one of the easiest, in my mind) is #2! Four of the ten answers are math-related!

    Pure math, math made with numbers, is fine. It’s the abomination of mixing letters and numbers and calling it math—a very unnatural dalliance with evil—that produces wicked math from the dark side.

    You could make the argument that all of the subjects mentioned are math-related.

    Health and gym?

    The man said you could make the argument, not win it.

    In gym you play games that require keeping score (I’m sure you can think of more examples). In health you learn about nutritional standards, which use math (% daily values, etc.).

    Steve you say 4 are math-related, but any science requires a lot of math, so those should be counted as math-related also. That makes 6 of the 10 that truly are math-related.

    Oops! There’s math again!

    True as true can be, Dan Roorda! It’s a good thing I wasn’t one of the ones who disliked it!
