When I took geometry in high school, I never thought I’d have any reason to remember the Pythagorean Therum or Algebra. More than 50 years later, I’m learning to do modular knitting and I have to figure out how many stitches to pick up along the hypotenuse of a knitted right triangle. But these days, even if I don’t know, Google knows.

Google knows all.

I’m no math wiz but I still know the Pythagorean theorem. And I still can set up an equation if there an ‘x’ factor.
