The Most Boring Topic Ever
How did people come up with mathematical formulas anyways? Are people born mathematically gifted, or do they have mathematics thrust upon them? Einstein dropped out of school in the eighth grade and voila! We now have E=mc2 (whatever that means). I think most of the star mathletes of our history were insane or on the pathway to insanity at least. Think of the Ladder analogy, the ladder represents your smartness. It starts off low for most people and, as you progress you become smarter. Now let's zoom in to the top two steps of said ladder. The second step from the top is mathematical genius-ness, and the top is insane, and once you reach insane, then you fall right back to the bottom... or you die, depending on how tall your ladder is. So these very smart math personalities, on the verge of insanity, created all these in-depth math concepts that torture the people near the bottom of the ladder. So for all you people near the top... enjoy your mathematical formulas while you still can.

(In English calss one day our teacher told us to think of some really boring topics, so i of course picked my least favorite thing in the whole world as the most boring topic... little did i know i would be forced to write about it. so anyways that is what i came up with, and yes i am near the bottom of the math ladder, *shivers* i hate math...)
