13 / 2012 How to misuse maths and fool people

My earlier posts 10/2012 and 12/2012 exposed the farce called Vedic Maths.

I have observed some more farces using mathematics, done by jokers, to hoodwink gullible idiots. Two such farces which come to my mind right now are ::

  • Numerology
  • Astrology

I will come up with more details soon, on these topics. If you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know directly by email :: drpartha AT gmail DOT com
