** When Bender first meets Flexo, they find it greatly amusing that both of them have serial numbers expressible as a sum of two cubes (like 1729 above).

** In his original pitch for ''Franchise/StarTrek'', GeneRoddenberry wanted to use [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation the Drake equation]] to demonstrate how likely it was we'd encounter aliens. Unfortunately, he couldn't remember the Drake equation, so he just made something up (including two variables being ''raised to the first power''). In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Future's End" Rain Robinson's work station has ''both'' equations on the wall.

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', the main character leaves his blackboard covered in equations, not knowing what to write after the equals sign. When he comes back, his double has solved it, and the expression he has written as an infinity symbol on the denominator. That's right. He just needed to divide by infinity.

* The flash animation music video of WeirdAlYankovic's "Everything You Know Is Wrong" includes a slew of mathematical formulas that start off correct and grow wackier until
--> 2 + 2 = Butt



* The flash animation music video of WeirdAlYankovic's "Everything You Know Is Wrong" includes a slew of mathematical formulas in one scene. Since this song is a parody of Governmental Lies (where everything that politicians say / believe is wrong) to the point where ''common sense'' is wrong, literally everything is a target for intentional error. Including math formulas.

Let's not forget about E=mc[--[[superscript:2]]--], the famous equation which has been degraded into nothing but a complex-looking decoration in everything from kids' cartoons to science shows. (E=mc[--[[superscript:2]]--] is actually AlbertEinstein's formula for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass-energy_equivalence mass-energy equivalence]]; far more people have heard of it than [[YouKeepUsingThatWord have any idea of what it actually means]]). Especially comical if it's pronounced [[FunetikAksent "eeyemseetwo"]] by people who don't realize the two represents a square.

* On ''Animaniacs'', Einstein is inspired when Yakko, Wakko and Dot sing the ACME Song and Wakko writes it backwards, with the "a" resembling a "2", resulting in Emc2. Al merely added an "=" between the "E" and "m".
** Earlier in the same episode, the board was filled with calculations that Einstein had given up on in frustration...one of them being "H2O=WET".
