115 ist kein wirklich runder Geburtstag, aber doch Anlaß genug, auf ein Gedicht hinzuweisen, dass erstaunlicherweise in Alfred Schreibers bekannter Sammlung mathematisch angehauchter Gedichte (in der es dafür aber ein anderes Gedichtfragment zu Brechts nie begonnenem Mathematik-Studium gibt) noch fehlt:

Bertolt Brecht, 1940

Mein junger Sohn fragt mich: Soll ich Mathematik lernen?
Wozu, möchte ich sagen. Daß zwei Stücke Brot mehr ist als eines
Das wirst du auch so merken.

Mein junger Sohn fragt mich: Soll ich Französisch lernen?
Wozu, möchte ich sagen. Dieses Reich geht unter. Und
Reibe du nur mit der Hand den Bauch und stöhne
Und man wird dich schon verstehen.

Mein junger Sohn fragt mich: Soll ich Geschichte lernen?
Wozu, möchte ich sagen. Lerne du deinen Kopf in die Erde stecken
Da wirst du vielleicht übrigbleiben.

Ja, lerne Mathematik, sage ich
Lerne Französisch, lerne Geschichte!

    Der Alltagskampf wird weniger belastend und deutlich besser lesbar auf diese Weise, zumindest bei mir 😉 In der dort referenzierten Politik und Wirtschaft geht ja nichts ohne Verwaltung, was die 115 letztendlich rund und passend macht.

    Und da sagen die Leute immer, Evolution könne nicht beobachtet werden – noch ein paar Generationen und das Teil befällt Fahrkartenautomaten.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thank you!|
