Lol, math.

Mathematics ... shortened to maths by everyone in the English speaking world except by those living in the USA.

Over the Christmas period I have been watching 'House M.D.' ... weird hearing an English man who has been in many English TV shows - Jeeves and Wooster, Black Adder et cetera - saying math for maths and zee for zed.

Looking forward to erb for herb and then ... since the Americans copy the French, ospital for hospital.

Hours of fun.

Maths is shortened Mathematics, Math is even shorter Mathematics, we win.
But the way we murder colonial English we’ll soon be saying Pohutukawa instead of Christmas tree.

"For the last 50 years it’s(standard physics formula shown) been our best description of the 17 known fundamental particles and their interactions."

OK, Pais and Treiman came up with this formula that only works when it has 17 fundamental particles(nobody can see) working like crew on a boat.
Oh, and the Emperor has new clothes.
These physicists are no dummies, they’re smart enough to convince governments, institutions, and groups, to put up Billions of dollars to support them, er... uh, their playing, I mean their work.

I'm kidding, but we accept much of what they tell us on faith, and the word of their peers. When a high school science teacher says he doesn't believe it he'll get supporters without fail from the group who just shake their head at these scientific leaps forward. Qanon proved it.

"Maths" always sounds so weird to me, like "a math" is a discreet unit that you can count, and "maths" is the plural.
