A warm October day down by the Provo River

On Saturday the weather was strangely warm for late October. It was like Summer again all of the sudden. I had nothing to do, so I called up Sam and Joe's house. Joe was home all by himself because Sam was at football practice and his parents had decided to go with him in order to show their support and then maybe go out do a little shopping afterwards. Joe was just sitting around reading or something, so he said he didn't mind if I wanted to come over.

We fixed ourselves some lunch, and after lunch -- since it was such a nice day -- we decided to go for a walk along the Provo River. Read the rest of the story ->

Ah, the fall of Jared... tempted by a woman holding a snake. Nice. :^)

Looking forward to the next installment, and hoping for more math. ;^) Are there going to be any casual mentions of the Riemann hypothesis, P vs. NP, that sort of thing? :^D

Thanks Ivan M!!!

Sorry, but this segment is a little light on actual mathematical content, despite how much of it takes place in math class. As I discussed earlier with another commenter, there's more math in the last illustration than there is in the story itself.

Maybe I should add another segment about the exmos who are off at grad school...

My goodness, I never realized how many nice, clean-cut Mormons seriously question their religion. Who would've thought that?

Hey Chaplain!!!

I think a lot of them do, and it's not hard for the ones that do to find each other. :D
