Archaic for "A cat or other member of the cat family". Nowadays, we just refer to any member of the cat family as a cat. In particular, species of the cat family that are (much) larger than a house cat are referred as "big cats".
Today's Standards: Lions are big cats.

Proper Standards: No, they're felines. Who the hell came up with "big cats", a 3-year-old?

Today's Standards: Nope! We brought "feline" into disuse a long long time ago!

The one area of physics where its researchers are actually mostly mathematicians.
Ed: Ey Bob I am studying fluid mechanics
Bob: You mean the area of physics you see mathematicians and engineers study instead of physicists?

Would have been a more popular langauge if half of its consonants weren't so hard for non-arabs to pronounce.

Arabic is also one of the few languages where it is compulsory to write in cursive: every American's nightmare.

Believe it or not, Arabic is way easier to learn than Japanese, though, at least when it comes to reading and writing. And if you learn Arabic, you'll look way cooler than that classmate who's fluent in Japanese.
Karl: I stil can't pronounce 25% of the arabic letters right.
Carl: Stop complaining, dude, I still can't read and write in Japanese.

High school calculus done right™️

As a well-established branch of pure mathematics, real analysis is known for being notoriously hard. This is due to hoardes of ill-prepared students not realizing that they've only studied baby mathematics previously.
Charles: Man, I thought calculus in high school was legit until I studied real analysis for the first time.
James: Yeah, it's the point in my life where I understood that my analysis of math just got real.

Baldi's basics is actually way more mathematical than one is led to think: unless you develop some sick strategy to collect the notebooks, you're doomed. Those baby math questions in notebooks are there just to show you how lame a math teacher Baldi really is.

Short for 'literal torture'.
Yeah Doki Doki Literature Club was a truly underwhelming experience. What's the point of attempting to disguise this lame horror game as a cute dating sim if the title speaks of literal torture?

Deep Thought the computer made a huge mistake on the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. Turns out the answer is 19, not 42!

This horrendous mistake was noticed when mathematicians proved that the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything must be a prime number, which 42 isn't. As is well known, mathematical proofs, unlike scientific ones, can never be refuted. Ergo, it must be the case that Deep Thought made an error.

It turns out some craphead programmer made a (serious) typo on the very first line of Deep Thought's code, for some reason causing the whole program to add 23 to the final answer. Only God knows what the heck when in that programmer's head at the time...
Jack: 19 year-olds are the ultimate members of society since 19 is (the true) answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

John: I bet your 20th birthday will be the worst one yet!
