Motorcycle Maths

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by hornet, Sep 14, 2005.

  1. So here's a little game for Hump Day. It's called Motorcycle Maths.
    I'll start with motorcycle definitions of the four most common mathematical terms, and some of the "A" words. See how many more "A" word definitons you can create.

    Addition: What your garage needs to accommodate the piles of stuff accompanying owning a bike, or more than one bike
    Subtraction: Extracting your enduro bike from the water crossing that didn't look THAT deep when you first rode into it
    Multiplication: Making your bike heavier by repeated additions of accessories:
    Division: What can happen to your relationship if you get TOO involved with bikes

    "A" WORDS

    Absolute Value: The LOWEST price you'll take for your second-hand Across
    Arithmetic Series: Buying two BMWs in a row
    Axiom: what you wish you had when your enduro bike broke down miles from anywhere
    Argument: Intermediate phase of division (see above)
    Arc: Final Phase of Division

    "B" words next Wednesday if anyone still wants to play!
  2. Average: ???
  3. looks too much like brain usage to me, i'm gunna go play solitaire :D
