Thanks to smbc-comics for a great mathy web comic! (

I’m not sure how often discrete mathematics uses the phrase “for reals”….I would think “for natural numbers” would be more appropriate, don’t you?

  1. Agreed, John. I think the right circle would be better labeled “Real Analysis”, but that might not be as recognizable for many people.

    • As I usually do, I had linked the comic to the original source. And most web comics include a signature in the corner. Anyway…the lack of overt credit is MY mistake, and I’ve added a caption which I hope adequately corrects the problem.

      Thanks for keeping me honest!!
