I just like when numbers have patterns that don't really mean anything, I guess I'm weird like that.

wow, my first double post where I didn't get impatient and hit the button a couple times.

It must be the math, it has a mind of it's own.

I saw this on an office joke website. Most folks when they do this think their computer is broken. When you do the calculations for 50, 51, 53, and 54 you get a bunch of decimals behind the number. With 52 you get 52 back. 52 is the correct answer but since you've done the other problems most people automatically assume the calculator isn't working.

Got it, square root and all, easy to think it hasn't performed the function. Windows calculator gives no indicators whereas pretty much any other will show an = or something.

This just in, most people don't know shit about math.

What is this, just an experiment to see how many people you can get to do this?

Then they're dumb. When I got that back, I just did a quick 52x52 to confirm that I hadn't fat finger typoed the numbers, and moved on.
