Kemarin sempat nonton film: Harold & Kumar Escape From Guatanamo Bay. Filmnya relatif lucu dan lumayan menghibur. Di Indonesia film ini mungkin terkena banyak sensor, tapi mudah-mudahan badan sensor kita tidak menghilangkan bagian paling menghibur dari film ini, sebuah pusi dari David Feinberg “The Square Root Of Three“, berikut kutipannya:

I’m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed

Kami sengaja tampilkan di sini sebagai bukti KEDUA, bahwa belajar matematika (dan segala yang berkaitan erat dengan-nya) tidak serta merta menghapus romantika. Jadi jangan pernah takut untuk belajar matematika – karena romantika walau umumnya terwujud lewat kata, kadang juga bisa datang dari angka. Ketika seseorang mampu meramu angka dan kata, maka apapun bisa tercipta.
