The Meanest Value Theorem: while spouting Monty Python lines, the point on the graph actually does illustrate the theorem from calculus, which says that a differentiable function over a closed and bounded interval has some point where its derivative equals the average (i.e., mean) change over the interval.

I’ve seen this image go around a few times in a couple of different formats, so I thought I’d add some information (which IMO makes the whole thing even funnier). First, it’s helpful to know a bit about the original story (“Verizon doesn’t know Dollars from Cents”). Second, e^(i*pi) equals -1, and the big sum with all the powers 1/2^n equals 1, so this is, in fact, a check for two-tenths of a cent. Click the link to the original story for the significance of that number.

I guess the issue was cleared up, but there’s more to the tale if you have time to read it…

*In fine,* the idea of engineers using calculus to vent anger makes me very happy.
