No one here gets it - this shirt is about freeing yourself from oppresion. The negative one is imprisoned by the cell that is the square root. It cannot break free on it`s own (unlike the square root of 2) and it does not want to change into something new by multiplication or division. The only way it can be free is by inverting it`s opressor... by squaring the square root! "Keeping it Real" isn`t supposed to be a pun.. it`s the persons view on life, how even the negative ones of the world should be allowed to express themselves freely.

@robswindol You got the math but missed the joke.

The important thing is that the "i" stands for Imaginary unit. The term "imaginary" is used because there is no real number having a square that is negative. Therefore, "i" can only exist as a real number if it is squared thus "Keeping it real"

I stand corrected on my explanation. It`s been too long since I took math and I overthought it.

i^2 = -1, a real number.

Geographers do it in the field
i is irrational

Ha! Good stuff.


For those of you who don`t get it.

i squared = -1
-1 = "negative one"
Someone who is negative like to say they are "keeping it real".

[quote]LOL. What do PI, SQRT(2) and women have in common?[/quote]
They`re all irrational! Hahaha I like it :)

[quote]So MeGrendel`s explanation sounded pretty plausible and would actually make it funny, but then people were saying his explanation was incorrect. So then how is the hoodie still funny? [/quote]
His explanation is almost correct, except i-squared is -1, not +1.
But -1 is still a real number, so the hoodie still makes sense.

he might be keeping it real, but why does he have to be so negative?

NOPE, wasn`t that funny. And the homeless person wearing it probably doesn`t think so either.

No, MeGrendel, i^2 is negative 1. More of a math geek thing than a science one.

@MeGrendel
If you square "root of -1", you get -1 not +1. The power goes on the outside of the square root.

`i` is the math symbol for `The Square Root of -1`, which is an Imaginary Number.

Squaring a negative gives you a positive, so isquared is the square root of 1, or one.

1 is a Real Number.

Thus, i is not real, it`s imaginary. i squared equals a Real Number. "Keeping it Real"
