The other night I was watching Stern with guest David Spade. He is allegedly a math genius, so Stern quizzed him.

1. What is the cube root of 64 divided by 8? [I couldn't tell if this was (64/8)^(1/3) or (64^(1/3))/8].
2. What is the Pathagorean Theorem?
3. What is the area of a circle?

How did this "genius" do? 0/3.

Robin was 3/3, which is another reason the show is watchable. With all the Jay-walking type segments showing how stupid Americans are, it is refreshing to see someone on tv who can speak intelligently on any subject -- even math.
