A subject that mathematicians pursue when they wish they were doing English instead.
Mathematician: I'm doing algebra today.
English Student: Why didn't you do English if you want to play with letters?
Mathematician: I ask myself that question every day...

(Noun) - One of the biggest reasons that high schoolers these days flunk out. It is the largest waste of time, and is also the reason that the United States of America has such a low average GPA, and such a high drop-out rate. It will never be applied to REAL LIFE (something strange to high school teachers) unless you plan to be a scientist, or mathematician (see crazy fuck.) According to your Algebra teacher, you will not survive in life without it. This is pure bullshit, and is only meant to scare you into passing. If you're a writer...you've got to take algebra. If you're an artist...you've got to take algebra. If you're a musician...you've still got to take algebra. If you're a mathematician...my hat off to you.
1. Dave: Hey breh! Wanna go to the movies?

Chris: No...I can't...I flunked algebra, therefore by teacher logic I'm never going to be successful in the modern world.

2. See useless.

Al Gebra is a terrorist movement which has reportedly infiltrated American schools. It began at the undergraduate level and has spread to secondary schools, according to US Attorney General John Ashcroft. Favored targets are said to include homomorphics and people living in polynomial relationships. Academics dismiss the Ashcroft's accusations as pandering to the lowest common denominator of anti-Arab prejudice. They are known to go by such names as "Mathematical Equations" and "Algebra".

Sources reveal that al-Gebra uses use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', and the CIA has determined they belong to an axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. Field agents are evaluating rumored links with ring-leaders in the French defunctional Axiom Directe group.
Me: Algebra=Al-Gebra, a terrorist group.
