Women mistakes Math for sign of terrorism on airplane.
Professor Guido Menzio from University of Pennsylvania was on a plane to Syracuse on a trip to Queen's University in Ontario, Canada to give a talk. On the plane he was trying to figure out an equation and the passenger misinterpreted his writing as something of terrorism. His 41 minuet flight was delayed two hours because of the incident.

I know Math can be scary but come on.

The original headline made me lol though: "Flight delayed when math mistaken for terrorism by passenger".

I can see her case; math is terrifying and a commonly used weapon against humanity.

Sidenote; need to stop reading comments on news articles....

That story reminds me of the time when CNN confused a sex toy flag at a gay pride rally with the ISIS flag. Laugh out load

I guess it depends on whether or not the maths was loaded and primed. Although I was woken up at 3AM the other night by kids letting off infinity signs in the street.

I've been telling you all that math is evil for years. Dodgy
