This reminded me of when my cousin was in high school and I was already working as a computer programmer. He told me he would like to be a computer programmer so I asked him how much he liked algebra. He said he was ok with math but he did not like algebra at all. So I told him programming is algebra with variables and math. He eventually decided to study more towards working with hardware and has become pretty good with networking.

Thankfully I find algebra easy. To be honest, I don't get what the big problem is people having with algebra.
That being said, I'm not fond of math in general. So whenever I have to do some math in my programming, I always brute-force it by trying a bunch of possibilities until I get the number I want (or at least a number close to what I want). Then I use that same poorly made formula everywhere else. It's worked for me so far. (laugh)

Personally I love math and algebra was my favorite.

I like geometry, and probabilities. Geometry was always a favourite :)

Though ancient Greek mathematicians pretty much used algebra along with geometry, eg there is a very elegant work by Archimedes, where he uses his idea of the balance/scale in geometry, so as to come up with calculating the relation between the volumes or related (same diameter) spheres, cylinders and cones.

Also the pythagorean proof for the existence of irrational numbers is very beautiful - using just geometry (it was about the square root of 2).

Were you ironically calling this "irony" to excite the usual internet tempest that comes from calling things ironic which actually aren't?

If so: Total genius!

If not: It is in no way ironic that you would find a bad driver at a driving school.

Maybe it is ironic that one with a licence (?) managed to crash into a driving school, thus returning to it and at the same time showing that is where he belongs :=

Yeah, I thought about this a bit as well.

In Australia, where I come from, someone who was still on a learner's permit would be instructed to pull back into the carpark of the driving school to complete the current lesson. And this could have resulted in this accident.

However, in this case, the car has no identifying logos showing that it belongs to the driving school and even has ski-racks, or something, on the roof.

I retract my above post. This appears to be the car of a non-student and therefore is actually ironic!

Doubly so if the car belonged to an instructor!

I guess I could have been clarer about the irony.
At least we can all agree that this is a terrible image to go with the headline here though? 8-0
