Is that some subtle HIMYM reference?

How the hell do you get any cream cheese in the middle of that thing? It would be a total mess.

should have used the Wheaton tag. Obscure?

Which side do you spread the cream cheese on?

Doesn't matter. Ever tried getting cream cheese out of a Klein bottle?

The actual quote is:

"Those that know, do. Those that understand, teach."
-Aristotle


But then again, I am from Massachusetts, where we take education seriously.

Weird. I would have guessed the actual quote was in Greek.

Attic or Modern?

There's only one side, so you don't have a choice.

That's two inter-locked bagel rings. Not a mobius bagel.
 
2012-11-09 04:30:18 PM  
Oh. Bagel. Not beagle. I think I may have to apologize to my neighbor.

I was expecting another Vihart video just a little bit.

Good news, George Hart. Your Mobius atrocity only lands you the second worst spot on the bagel list.

I just did that for all the cream cheese in the universe. What I wanna know is how you got it into a Klein bottle.

Wouldn't a true Mobius bagel only have a half turn in the slice? Can someone try this? I only have access to doughnuts.

You'll never want to stop eating it. And in theory, you never could.

You make the Klein bottle around the cheese.

Christ I have to explain everything.

That's a different quote. The one here is "Those who can't do, teach. Those who can't teach, teach P.E."

Yah, I can't flip burgers, Sorry. I guess I'll teach instead. But you enjoy.

The actual quote is:

"He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches."
-George Bernard Shaw
Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"

But then again, I'm not from Massachusetts and so actually had an education.

/Facetious, but Shaw did write it.
//Pretty sure Aristotle, while attributed the other, never actually said it.

But what if I'm a teacher?

Does that mean that I can't do, and am therefore a teacher, or does it mean that I can do, and am therefore doing teaching?

I think it means you don't have to "do." You could do, but if what you did was anything other than teach, you'd loose the privileged of being a teacher.

The mathematician really enjoyed watching the Moebius strip.

You wouldn't be able to eat it.
