Inspired by RJ1969: Should Arabic numerals be taught in public schools?
Lol no we don't want no muslim numbers here... ill stick to my American 1 2 3 4 thank you very much. libs are ruining our country
That RJ is a real jokester....
Absolutely not. Can't let the damn terrorists win again. Just Obama trying to push more Islam on us like he always does.
It takes an hour to teach third graders Roman numerals. I think it's worth the effort.
Damnit, I've been bamboozled. I should have read the comments first...
How did Arabic numbers get on my money????
Courtesy of the U.S. Mint?
That time I was actually playing along with it
Better than Roman numerals.
Yeah, nobody speaks romanian anymore
Actually people speak Romanian in Romania. :)
There's your sign
That's the point
That's just normal numbers, wtf 😂😂😂
Nice trick question
Lol. Why not. Good one.
That was a pretty funny trick😂
WOW SO WITTY OF YOU TRICKING EVERYONE.
Is this a joke?
Am I being punked?
Let's go back to Roman numerals. Seems more fun...
This wins FATSHADOWs Poll of the Week.
40% of Republicans ( currently)
4% would be too many.
Some people do not seem to understand what 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and 0 are
Especially the 0.
Oh, the Right understands zero, all right.
It is a good idea to include basic understanding of foreign languages in school as they can comprehend that easier when their brains are developing, so it will be easier to build on it in the future.
It said numerals not alphabet
This was kermie's Q last year...
I didn't see his question, I did see RJ's
Not that it matters, as this is a kind of important Q, so thanks for posting it, but it was posted by kermie about a month after I found this place. So, over 1.5 years ago now.. Tine for a refresher.
Where did RJ inspire this? I looked through his poll history and didn't see anything.
It was from 2013, that's why it can't be seen in his history. It's too far back
The comments on RJ's poll are gold!!!
One person said, "To anyone who voted yes: When have you ever used an Arabic numeral EVER in your life? Probably NEVER. So shut up, and stop whining that some people don't want to have their kids learn useless information."
Later, he got mad and said the poll was biased.
I remember that. It's my favorite poll in the history of the app
I love this question whenever it pops up on a poll somewhere. It does a lovely job at showing ignorance.
Show beheading techniques be taught. And best methods to stone women.
so you voted no?
What type of numerals should they teach rons?
Arabic and letters in cursive as it was meant to be. Just thought they contributed other techniques.
Was confused by the responses and did a quick Google search did we?
My friend and I always joked about this in my physics class
Everyone voting no probably doesn't know what Arabic numerals are.
Vote no because the question is lame.
That's pretty lame reasoning
Your answer may not be THE answer.
This question has rons flustered I think
You're assuming they don't know the number system. Many vote no because they can, or don't like the question, or there is no skip vote option.
You do know that I said "probably" in my comment.
You also said everyone! Pick it! Like everyone probably died in the plane crash.
This is an old poll idea. Very few fall for it at this point.
The fact that any do is sad.
What about dihidrogen monoxide in the rain and our food?
True justin, and matt i appreciate the try, but i've already been warned about dihydrogen monoxide.
Hmm. What about the Jetsons-Flintstones conspiracy?
What? Have you not heard of the theory that they live in the same post apocalyptic universe where Orbit City is for the wealthy and Bedrock is for the poor?
I wouldn't call 20% "very few."
