Burke's Rule of Metric Conversion: The United States will switch to the Metric System when the NFL switches to the Metric System and not before. (first spoken in the early 80s and, so far, still not inaccurate).
Mr. Burke is a high school math teacher in New York as well as a part-time writer, and a fan of science-fiction/fantasy books and films.
He started making his own math webcomic totally by accident as a way of amusing his students and trying to make them think just a little bit more.
