Venn Diagrams Anyone?

I have to keep reminding myself that there are two reasons for taking a contemporary math class. One is to have fun and the other is to expand my mind. At the moment, I am unsure about fun part but very certain on the mind expansion.

After thirty minutes of working with these diagrams, my mind is expanded to the point of a migraine! Is there some real life purpose to a Venn diagram beyond the fact that they remind you of Micky Mouse?

I can't wait to see what chapter two in Mathematics All Around will hold!

As a software developer, I've found Venn diagrams to be very useful when trying to find intersections of data sets and trying to display that to a non technical person. It's a great visual aide, especially for us visual learners!
