> Math person that I am, I adore "The Squire of High Potternews",
Non-math person, but musicals-fanatic that I am, as soon as I passed the line without consciously recognizing it, somewhere in the back of my head I heard a Gilbert & Sullivan Very Modern Major General singing 'With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse' - at which point I went back and reread the phrase and got it. But then of course I had the song stuck in my head the rest of that day. :)

Ooh, this one's a history joke - Edward Gibbons wrote a history of the Roman Empire. :) Hooray for useless trivia that runs round my head! :)
