Interesting fact: while this statistic MAY have been true at one time, upon further research, I’ve found it might actually not have much bearing anymore. Regardless of the percentages changing, the statistic itself seems to somehow remain widely accepted due to unfortunate stereotypes.

All the same, Rain interpreting this as validating herself as a woman is kind of funny though. I mean, it’s a horrible way of looking at things on her part, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t also proud of sucking at math in my high school days for the exact same reason.

Validation through the enforcement of a negative stereotype? Rain had better not mention this to any other girls.

I hate to admit it, but I had a moment similar. But then I realized, it's not so much that I suck at math, as it is that math, science, and I just don't get along.

And Rudy and Rain are kinda cute together.

I have the opposite. I feel validated because I'm great at math. xD (being FtM, yeah, I guess it makes sense)

Also, I'm lovin' my Rain-land look-a-like, Drew! Funny thing is we look nothing alike we just have the same name. xD I'm still happy to see a character with the same name as me.

Mathmatics and Artists don't get along. I hate math! DX
2+2= fish, mofos!
But my fiance` helped me out during my senior year of highschool--because I had a math teacher with a VERY thick Cuban accent that was so thick, even the ESOL students who spoke Spanish couldn't understand her--and I passed by a very thin hairline. Thank God he tutored me. @_@ Again, I HATE math.

As a mathematician and an artist (and a girl!), I am confused by this comment

I'm almost actually *ashamed* to say now that I was so good I literally got an A in my sleep...

I just wanna say a couple of things. If I knew a girl like Rain, I would definitely be in Rudy's shoes right now. Also, speaking of Rudy, you have created the first webcomic character that I would go gay for simply because of how cute he looks with Rain. Congrats.

Would it be unfair to say that in my experience, those 'statistics' seem to be accurate? I'm a guy, and I actually had to tutor my own mother through her college math classes. Yeah.

"Statistics showed that 100% of all people who drink water, die"

And that's how statistics work XD

Ha. If those statistics were right I'd have gone for engineering as a hobby to study instead of computer science. I'd much rather program something to do math for me. :P

Dunno why but I get this feeling like the relationship might not last long, though.

So Rain and Ruby... damn, I was really shooting for Maria.
Also I totally heard Rain squeak about math in my head.

Ok, you know what? I used to think MariaXRain was the only OTP. But RudyXRain is too freaking cute! Maybe they're 2 OTPs now.. But I was really rooting for MariaXRain. :(

This is really ticking me off. I'm a girl, and I was the top of my class in every math class I ever took. My best friend, also female, was the second best student in all of our classes together. This is not true. Fun fact: Girls get better grades on average.
