I wake up every game day assuming we're about to chalk up a win. Vegas is on board. Noles a 3 point favorite.

Have you guys seen this equation floating around FB?

3+3*3-3+3=?

My cousin, who is currently in college majoring in Math, even used the acronym PEMDAS in her answer and still got it wrong. SMH

Thank you Mimi for the recent PEMDAS refresher and quizzes!

I was on a date and some MI guy was really having a hard time. He was alone (shocking) and get yelling and pacing in weird circles.
It was amusing. When they lost, I could see him breathing deeply from across the room, lol!
I'm glad i was never that bad...as i can still recall, the physical pain was as bad if you won or lost.....lol....Maybe he was starved for attention?

Nope. I'll wait a bit before I post it, in case anyone else wants to have a go at it. I'll explain how to get the answer, too.

Were talking about how some southern states have a reputation for inbreeding and we were wondering if you would care to chime in from your own personal experience.

Cheah. You do the multiplication first then the subtraction and addition, unless it's in a parenthesis. That's how I understand it, at least.
