So it was a close battle, but a clear winner emerged.
OFFICIAL AND FINAL.
Two votes is clearly an insurmountable margin at this point.
As we are all well aware of there are only 49 posters on /sci/ in total and fucking Anon49 is too edgy to cast a vote as usual.
>> prop.test(23, 48, p=.5)

>data: 23 out of 48, null probability 0.5
>X-squared = 0.0208, df = 1, p-value = 0.8852
>alternative hypothesis: true p is not equal to 0.5

These fucking engineers.
You know, I was actually the first person to vote for "Maths" in that poll but I'm fucking tired of this attitude and I am also very fucking tired of the engineers doing this shit.
How many fucking times now have engineers just pulled a poll out of their asses and then claim "The winner is official!". No, no winner is fucking official. What a handful of people say here is not fucking official you retarded fucktarded engineers, learn some fucking statistics you literal braindead zombies.
If you are an engineer you deserve to die, like fucking seriously. GET OUT OF /SCI/ AND TAKE YOUR SHITTY POLLS TO /B/ OR SOME SHIT. Japanmano Hirozuki Please do another board for the retarded engineers so we scientists can have a good time here.
>one rule relates to every word
The English language isn't perfect. You'll learn that.
Now there are 5 ones
>REMINDER: the same people who call maths math still use the imperial system.
Maths? Is this a joke? It's math wtf is going on here? Why the fuck do you even care anyways can't you just treat Math/maths synonymous if it stops this bullshit?
I wish it was son, but I met a woman from the UK and she did in fact say that she studied 'maths' I know that Brits use different terminology than we do but in this case I just assumed that she had a speech impediment or had suffered a stroke.
It's not a vote, maths is retarded. (Math)ematics, (math)ematic(s). I understand realizing that your whole life has been a lie is unsettling but just face it now and get over it.
PS. This is coming from someone who used neither word until into adulthood.
If someone where to say "maths" I would just think they where joking around, pretending to be retarded.
But I guess......you know.......distance...speech....whatever.
I thought the word mathematics was too long, therefore I abbreviated it to math....
then added an 's' , just 'cause.
>Nobody says mathematic.
1) the word "mathematics" is singular.
2) When abbreviating things, you don't typically just take the last letter and append it to the abbreviation (it's Richard->Rich, not Richard ->Richd)
3) "Britsh English" and "General American English" are two different dialects of the same language, not "correct" and "incorrect" versions of one language. We're allowed to have different words and conventions for abbreviating things.
Can people please stop this meme?
did you consider the amount of faggotry in your stats?
Surely there are America users who came to 4chan, saw that some people say "maths", and now use it to fit in with "cool 4chanz" because they've don't know anything other than hamburgers and black presidents
