mathematics and statistics are amongst the manliest things that exist in our world today.  heck, the majority of the world of sports, and the industry that supports sports revolve around mathematics and statistics. math also has worked its way into the world of fiber: beans, are rich in fiber… beans, as we all know, are [...]
