@JENGOSMonkey I WAS THERE FOR '89! I was a kid, but I remember the water coming out of the swimming pool in huge waves and everything falling from the shelves! I was actually born in San Jose, but moved around a lot later LOL I hear the wildfires are more of a concern for you guys now? That's scarier than quakes for me...

Personally, I'm glad they finally caught this guy. He's been causing me headaches for years. Nearly killed me in the 1970's.
Math Teacher Arrested Boarding Plane
NEW YORK – A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator.
At a morning press conference, the Attorney General said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement.
He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction. 'Al-gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.'
They use secret code names like 'X' and 'Y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country.
As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to every triangle'.
When asked to comment on the arrest, Senator Barack Obama said, 'If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.
Democrats told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the Senator.

I agree!! Although it was the geometry teacher/terrorist that just about drove me nuts! Why did I need to know how to prove a triangle was a triangle when we learned how to identify one in kindergarten! And by using a lot easier criteria!!!
That was a good laugh! Thanks for sharing.
