    I was talking to my nephew today and he mentioned watching the donald duck geometry movie in geometry class. I remember watching this movie, as does my dad. I just figured I'd throw up an informal poll to see how many of us remember it. It has Donald Duck, some guy using geometry to play billiards, and an oh-so-stereotypical 1960's narrator.

    So... Have you seen it?

    I have never heard about it, but then I am still in High School, so I just took Geometry last year.

    I'm on sick leave today, and you just made me and my father waste two hours of my time watching old Donald Duck episodes on YouTube. Thank you. :)

    Your education system must be very far behind. ;) I'm sure you must have learnt geometry before high school.

    Ah, yes. I saw this in middle school. And then, after the AP calculus exam, our teacher needed something to do with us for the last week and a half of classes, so he showed us math-themed movies...including this one, for nostalgic purposes.

    We weren't allowed media of any kind other than pencil and paper in my geometry class. What a swell class, gee whiz!
