Hi all,
I want to share with you a beautiful article, "A Mathematician's Lament", written by Paul Lockhart commenting on the state of current mathematics education.

Oh wow, I was neglecting this article seeing the wall of text, but now that I have started reading it, this is one of the most hilarious and agreeable articles ever! Thanks for sharing!
