Big-Brained Nerds Who Did the Math Just for Fun

Some people like to scroll through memes for a light chuckle or two. Others prefer to check the accuracy of a joke through complex mathematical equations. You'd think the latter would suck the funny out of a meme. On the contrary, doing in-depth mathematical analysis to convert sperm DNA into megabytes in response to a meme about ejaculation is pretty hilarious. Subreddit r/theydidthemath is a goldmine of examples of nerds doing the math for no good reason. We've collected some of our favorite recent posts from the sub.

Strange, Mundane And Charming Excerpts From The Treasure That Is Wikipedia

Wikipedia is an institution. It knows almost anything about everything, to the extent that if it doesn't show up on the first page of most Google results it feels like it's a problem. Every teacher who ever disapproved of it for being 'unreliable'? They were bewildered by its gift for cutting homework time in half.

However, the site doesn't just distinguish itself by being useful — it's also a fantastic time waster. Depths of Wikipedia documents some of the most interesting, bizarre and humorous things that grace the pages of this hallowed website, like the ones below. Ancient society may have had the Library of Alexandria, but we in the internet age have the ability to go down several hour trivia rabbit hole any time we want. And in a way, perhaps that's equally as great.

Entertaining Times Knowledge Was Dropped On Stupid People

According to our timelines, pretty much everyone is a medical expert or scientist these days. These "experts" throw around knowledge that is factually untrue and sometimes even downright dangerous. And it's extremely satisfying when these wannabe Einsteins get schooled by actual professionals on social media. This gallery is full of that delicious dunking. We hope these numbskulls learned their lessons and maybe even starting cracking some actual books.
