an anecdote on abbreviations

Forums: 

One of my friends took an abstract algebra course in which the professor insisted on using abbreviations whenever possible. For example, instead of writing out "first isomorphism theorem", this professor always wrote "FIT". As a result, my friend's notes were plastered with abbreviations, including FIT, SIT, and TIT.

My friend was hoping desperately to get to the six hundredth isomorphism theorem....

Don't worry: It took me about 10 seconds to realize why my friend wanted to get to the six hundredth isomorphism theorem, so don't feel bad about a "short delay". :-)

In any case, I am glad that someone besides me appreciated the joke.

Wow, I too just comprehended that...I originally just kind of laughed at the prospect of a six hundredth isomorphism theorem...NOW I get it! Haha!
