    Roman numerals, anyone? Poll suggests bias against Arabic numerals

    When CivicScience, a Pittsburgh-based market research firm, polled more than 3,200 Americans on the issue of mathematics instruction last week, 56% of the respondents said Arabic numerals should not be taught in American schools; 29% said it should be part of the curriculum, while 16% offered no opinion.
    How dumb can people be? NOTE: America has been using Arabic numerals since......... um, since before the founding of America. LOL.

    Can't wait to learn algebra using Roman Numerals. That's what being a Western Chauvinist is all about!

    Reminds me of when the Man Show circulated a petition among females to "End Woman's Suffrage" and how enthusiastic those ladies were about signing it.

    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.
