Mathmagical Genius found in Golden

snow -10 °C

A short yet somewhat hysterical story...

The rumours that Golden is full inbred, hill-billy hicks is at times a little harsh but I think I met the lady (perhaps a man, not sure) that continue to support these rumours.

Whilst drinking one night at the Mad Trappers bar (how appropriate), I got talking to a woman who claimed to be 40 years old, but infact looked more like 70, with a voice deeper than Barry White's and looks that make Sloth from The Goonies a stunner.

She told me of her plans to give up the hill-billy lifestyle and instead take a degree in Accountancy. None too weird yet until she explains her entry qualifications are that in 12th grade (approx 30 years previous) she achieved a 99% average (the 1% dropped because teachers can't give 100%). In her finals at school she again excelled but only got 98% this time, the 2% dropped for failing to get her name correct on the exam paper.

How did she achieve this level of genious? Well, it's all down to Donald Ducks Mathemagical Land of wonder. She insisted all you need to know is revealed within this cartoon.

So there you have it, budding mathemagicians and even those with PHds, check it out and learn math Disney style.
