I voted yes, but I'm a commie globalist liberal so I am probably biased. Hilarious.

Pretty much everyone did 250 years ago.  Now it's only loonies with AR15s in pizza parlors, and the like.

It's just funny to me that's he's tying to make a point about "open carry idiots" by comparing himself to people that thought it sensible to settle personal disputes by shooting each other in public.

Bloodletting and leeches to cure disease were thought a good idea 250 years ago. So were slavery, debtors' prisons and public executions.  Despite the best efforts of conservatives, we HAVE made progress.

That's a nice link that proves both of the numeral systems in the image you posted are Arabic numerals. Why don't you want either of them to be taught?

Didn't say that. Just pointing out that there is more than one "Arabic" number system. It was a means of thumbing the nose to the "dihydrogen monoxide" "gotcha" question.

Oh, and I thought it a means to demonstrate your bigotry.  My mistake.

I. Didn't. Say. That.

We know what you said. It was part of you expressing your fear and hatred of Islam. I don't like it much either, but Jeeeesuz man, you are downright phobic about it sometimes.

No, that is what others choose to read into it.
