This YouTuber Explains How ISPs Violate the Laws of Mathematics

In this joke video by minutephysics we get the mathematical problems that exist with Internet Service Providers.

Minutephysics usually brings us great videos on the laws of physics, so we were rather surprised when we stumbled on this video regarding Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The video came about when the host of the YouTuber channel had a bad experience with one ISP.

Most of us would complain a little and let it go. But minutephysics sought to make it all about physics once more.

"This joke video is about how Internet Service Providers (aka ISPs, internet companies, telecommunications companies, etc.) violate the basic axioms of Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory. Like the axiom of choice (sometimes Well-ordering theorem), the Axiom of extensionality, Axiom of regularity (also called the Axiom of foundation), Axiom schema of specification, Axiom of pairing, Axiom of union, Axiom schema of replacement, Axiom of infinity, Axiom of power set," reads the video's description.

The video even becomes a bit philosophical applying the beauty of mathematics to real life in an eloquent way. And we will tell you that in the end, the host does find a solution to his ISP problem.

Either way, the humorous mathematical video is bound to be a joy for all of us STEM lovers to watch. It might also inspire us to create similar theories out of everyday experiences.
