Geometry is very useful, isn't it? You can play pool (or is billiard) and
win much money. You can calculate how far it takes to get from one point
to another without using the map's scale.
I don't know. Still in geometry myself (My counselor kept me back a year
when I passed Algebra with fly colors, sort of)
