I don’t really see the FAIL here.
It’s a reference to the planned reconstruction of the train station in the german town of Stuttgart.
The project is called “Stuttgart 21” and it’s very contoversial, even leading to riots – some might consider it “evil” or even as “all evil”.
Then you just type sqrt(21) in your calculator and see what the headline and the image want to say.
I just plain don’t understand ❓
I don’t see the fail here. The comma used after the 4 (in place of a decimal point) is common for European countries. The digits given are correct for this approximation of the square root of 21.
