Love Math to death, and always did through school and college.

Even right now, I rarely use a calculator at work.

maths sucks...love physics though

Most of what we call maths was created by over-brained egomaniacs who always liked to invent problems more than solving them. They should all have been shot :-)

[ Ok ok i was never good at maths and was always jealous of those who were ]

Maths is the universal language. Its is the means to all.
Without it we would not have the cars we have today. Coz many of the engine specs rely on mathematical formulae such as the degrees of a camshaft, the angles of the cylinder palcements etc. We owe it all to the geniuses who formulated it. Dyno machines give readings of torque and kW against rpm thru algebraic equations.
Ok im getting carried away... Bottom line... I respect mathematics.
