Oh, compared to quantum physics, photography is very straightforward.

If you put a conceptual artist in a box with a machine that will break a vial of cyanide if triggered by a random radioactive decay, then arrange a camera to automatically take a photo after the door of the box is opened, then the artist is both partly alive and partly dead until someone looks at the photo.

That's what I mean!

For many "conceptual" artists, that's a kindness only an audience will appreciate.

It's not "math", it's arithmetic.  Very simple arithmetic, at that.  Goes together with Reading and Writing, so it seems quite appropriate.

1+1=2 and knowing the 11x table is arithmatic

Let x=1 and y=1 then evaluate x+y is maths - I think, and I have a degree in hard sums  :-\

And to think that for years I'd taken that to be simple algebra!

Arithmetic and Algebra are (tiny) branches of Mathematics.

Relationships are like maths: have you ever thought about your X and wondered Y?

So, you are colluding with Russians? Spreading fake news, that is.

How can it be that these young ladies become more intelligent every year? Was a time I thought they were all stupid.
