Frisky Hate Mail: You Crazy Chicks Should Learn Some Math!

We get a lot of mail from readers, some insanely flattering, some helpful (thanks for doing a little free copy-editing for us, guys!), and plenty of nasty hate mail. With that in mind, we’re going to post some of the best reader mail we get from time to time, because we totally appreciate that you even take the time to write!

“I’m a normal dude who read one of your articles while on the CNN site — wow, is this stuff a big bag of crazy. It’s like ‘that crazy chick I dated in college’ merged with ‘all that is irrelevant.’ Please, do something worthwhile — volunteer, travel, read a book (not about fashion or ‘guys’), or for god-sakes learn accounting.”

Psst, we were that crazy chick you dated in college — guess you were too drunk to remember. Anyhoo, thanks for reminding us — it’s time for The Frisky’s Daily Math Problem!
