Pop culture equations

615x330_equation.png

Now, while we can quickly recognise when we've been short-changed at the pub, maths in general isn't our strong point.

Oh how different school would have been with Matt Cowan in charge of our maths lessons. The Scottish designer, who's based in Italy, has created a variety of equations that explain various fictional characters through the magic of multiplication.

While some of them might take a bit longer to figure out than others (use your heads, damn it!) they're all easily defined as genius.

You can even buy them all on t-shirts to help kids learn and help you feel a bit cooler right here.
