Break time #hashtag

I came across a funny quip from Ben Franklin. He wrote:
"Tim was so learned, that he could name a horse in nine languages. So ignorant, that he bought a cow to ride on."
As a teacher, it made me think about the nature of education. I have to go write some papers though, so maybe someday I'll get back to this.

The word of the day is mantissa. It's the part of a number that is after the decimal point. So, for 3.18, the "point one eight" is the mantissa. It is a math word that I should have known, but was only introduced to recently.

Back to work.
