Welcome all back another wonderful term of educational bliss and unending pain. I hope you all are relaxed from your co-op term or otherwise break, and ready to endured stuffing your brain with much knowledge. We have lost a lot of good hard working mathNEWS-ites in the course of two term, but we still managed to get together to create this wonderful publication.
Since each and every one of you readers is special in some way or another, we asked our production staff: "Where is the meaning of life". After making horrible, nasty threats to anyone answering with '42', we polled the results! James Simpson "Square root of forty-two squared,"; Richard "On Monday"; Matthew "On the inside of any Mobius Strip"; Monika "The number of votes I got"; Robert "On the outside of a Klein Bottle"; Nicole "The projection onto the span of a unit vector"; Mark "In the bald spot of the Hairy Ball Theorem"; Evan "In the UW Maintenance Tunnels"; Val "Between the I and the E"; DanS "Life/n(Life)".
The results are astonishing. No one got the right answer, which was: there is no meaning of life. So it's in a place where nothing exists: any statistics course. Oh well, maybe next time. Much thanks got out to our peeps down at Graphics, as always they treat us so very well. We'd also like to thank the geese that keep attacking us everyday: you give our lives fear. Take time to hug a production staff member, they are overworked and underhugged. Hee ho, see you next time!
