Mathtype: No. I'm not going to try to explain them to you. Another NonMathtype wanted to know what they're good for, and I'd rather mock him for not seeing the beauty of Mathematics.
Is that where this thread is going?

Let's find out.
Ahem:
I don't understand what Bernoulli numbers are and cannot make sense of the equations in the Wiki link. Would you mind explaining them to me in a way a NonMath person can grasp? In return I'd be happy to discuss poetry with you.
