The concept that exists just to make people in Algebra 2 die of confusion.
"How does this pointless stuff that I'm not even going to use when I'm older even make sense? I just don't see how there can be Imaginary Numbers!"

Jan 23 Word of the Day
Adjective for something that definitely wasn't lame, but not quite "hot". In other words, slightly below being hot, therefore warm, like a nice pair of mittens.
"How were things at the club last night?"

"Plenty to drink, but the music was no good. I guess shit was mittens."

A number which all mathematicians can agree does not exist in math, but one which we put into equations just for the sake of argument and because it is so much fun.
"The solution to this equation is an imaginary number."
"So there is no solution?"
"Well, no, but I found it anyway."

An imaginary number is used in pointless math equations that do nothing but find another number. They are the reason for bad grades in math classes. Imaginary numbers have no real significant value except that you get a grade for something that is fake. Imaginary numbers come in letter form just to piss everyone off. They are the drunk girl at the party in the number world.
Aaron: I love imaginary numbers because I'm delusional.
Justin: Shut the fuck up. they are fake and you are high!!!

A fake number that does not exist. Itβs only purpose is to ruin lives. I hate math.
Kayla said imaginary numbers make her happy, and I was just happy to hear that she was happy. Sheβs a beautiful girl who loves coffee.
