Nothing stirs the pot like some good, old-fashioned irrationality. As soon as Uncle Shmoop brings up topics like aliens on Mars or government conspiracies, the perfectly rational discussion about what was really in those cafeteria tacos suddenly pales in comparison.

It's the same way with rational and irrational numbers: Irrational numbers can turn rational ones irrational. They are the zombies of the math world, if one equates habitual flesh eating and irrationality, as we certainly do.

The contamination doesn't have anything to do with flesh eating; rational and irrational numbers are fundamentally different. Rational numbers can be represented as a ratio with integers in the numerator and denominator. Irrational numbers are too free-spirited to be pinned down like that. They can be represented as non-repeating, non-terminating decimals, although they often disguise themselves using symbols such as √11 or π.
