YouTube find – Miss USA: Should Math Be Taught In Schools?


This YouTube gem is proof of the good of social media. A friend passed this on through Facebook, and I would have never seen it because I’m up to my neck Internet security theories and social networks’ role in m-commerce. (I’m studying for a midterm.)


P.S.: It’s a parody.


UPDATE: To repeat: It’s a parody! It’s not real!
