I stumbled across this (http://komplexify.com/blog/2006/03/09/on-the-proof-of-the-supposed-evilness-of-girls/) and thought it was something BAUTers would enjoy. I sure did.

...though I think the female membership might not agree. :)


(P.S., sorry for the blind link; I don't want to post a quote as it would require me to pretty much reproduce the whole page. For inquiring minds that don't want to click, it's proof of the evilness of girls)

It is enjoyable, but I'm afraid to say it is also quite old.

I think I remember musing that one in high school many decades ago. (probably earlier, but high school is when it became important;))

I had heard the first part, but not the addition of the "absolute" evil

In one of the comments, there is a mathematically more accepted explanation of why it's absolutely evil, using the square root convention.

It's funny, although girls are not evil.

But wasn't there a chapter in Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan that discussed how evil and knowledge are intertwined. It's been a while since I read the book.
