Warning: Groan Ahead

Question: What did the natural log of the 16th primitive root of unity say after the pie was gone?

Answer: I overate.

Perhaps this joke needs an explanation:

  • The 16th primitive root of unity is e(pi*i/8)
  • The natural-log(e(pi*i/8)) = pi*i/8
  • And, when the pi is gone, what remains is i/8
I overate…get it? Groan!
