Some of your friends probably revel in the fact they can't do math. In fact, it's weird how some people can be so proud about lacking a skill that's incredibly useful. Would they brag about not being able to cook? Or play guitar? Or write a wonderful sentence?

No. Of course they wouldn't. Being proud of not being able to do math is hateful inverse snobbery which makes no sense. So what if it's hard and takes years to master: math is the language of science, and I, for one, am glad I'm fluent. There, I said it. [xkcd]
