Last Week Tonight's John Oliver was off this week, but that didn't stop him from taking a quick break from his vacation to offer kids some advice for the upcoming school year. He's right about the math for the most part, but some of us, such as myself, use it quite a bit for our jobs.
John Oliver took a quick break from his vacation from "Last Week Tonight" to help prepare students for the upcoming school year.
He gave quick lessons on history, biology and chemistry, and told students which characters die at the end of a few books, including "The Great Gatsby" and "Death of a Salesman." Oliver also urged viewers to learn about former President Warren G. Harding's salacious love life.
He told kids that beyond addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, they won't need much math in the real world.
"You’re going to be repeatedly told you need this when you grow up. That is bullshit," he said.
