"Vector calculus would be taking things a bit too far. Pre-cal/trig would be about as far as would be useful for most people. Some good financial math would be very good. And some statisics. But no further."
"Other than the fact that these sorts of electromagnetic emissions would probably cause cancer, I have three problems with this idea.
