    It's hip to be square. I love Math. He was my first love, but then I met English.

    speaking of square roots, I happen to really like the number 81.

    It is the only number where the sum of its digits equals its square root.

    and spelling counts.

    I remember i had a physics prof my sophomore year at college. he was a stickler for solutions not answers so we had to explain why we used the formulas we did etc. not only would he penalize your calculation errors, he would deduct points for spelling and grammar mistakes. I loved that guy.

    I had no idea you were so nerdy...I'm beginning to like you.

    I have a preference for whole numbers, no fractions please.

    The only A+ I received in college was for Calculus. Can I get my geek badge now?
