OK folks, if you don't like this, blame Logo. He started it, talking about
equations and other esoteric (to say the least) matters.
I do this with my University Math Students.
In general, when we complete a proof in Mathematics, we "sign it" with the initials QED (often written in script
form). I tell the kids what it means. It is basically a Latin Phrase (quod erat demonstrandum) with the loose translation: The Truth Has Been Demonstrated. But, the "joke" among mathematicians is "Quite Easily Done."
Now for my little test to you guys.
In England, the mathematicians often conclude a proof, with the HUMOROUS phrase abbreviation, EMDW. It's in the QED joking spirit.
So, what does it stand for!??
If nobody gets it, I'll give you all a hint!
Also: you are on your honor not to look it up!
