One time my math professor asked everyone in class to write a complex number on their forehead
You could probably imagine the expressions on our faces.
Complex numbers are complicated.
Please tell me I’m just imagining things.
This joke may contain profanity. 🤔
There is no I in Complex Numbers

A tachyon travels faster than light, and in order to use some of the math from special relativity, one had to define what he called "perplex numbers"--numbers with negative absolute value. He...
