Thanks, That Really Clarifies Things

What do you get when you cross Gary Larson with your math prof?

Today my Math 316 prof attempted to explain his solution to a problem with the following analogy:

"Suppose you are running at a mirror. What you would see is your face, getting larger and larger until finally you run right through the mirror, smashing it. And suppose you had a little man waiting behind the mirror, who jumps out as soon as you smash through it, and runs back the way you came."

Ah! Now I get it.

I did an ethics course for my TA job. One of the examples in the "sexual harrassment" module was a TA making up a problem for his tutorial asking what the probability was that he'd get laid that year.

Anyway, the moral of the story is be glad I'm not your TA.
