All math is beautiful, whether big or small.

Am not as dedicated as Bro D, but language abuse like that does bother me.  Mostly it's the paired terms people mix up. Tenet/tenant drives me mad. The number of people who never figured out affect/effect. Compliment/complement. Discreet/discrete. Cord/chord. Phase/faze. Reign/rein. (that one needs to be drilled into heads.)

I realise I suck at math as much as these people suck at language, but I keep my math private, thank you.  :stuckup:
My only real nails on chalkboard mixup is people who say it's a mute point.

I had a close to transcendent experience once when I worked through a derivation of Euler's identity. I had an overwhelming feeling that everything was one. That works as a pun but it was really in the Zeno sense of all is one.
