Quite possibly, but I'm always skeptical of such statements because it's a bit like saying "this one jigsaw piece out of the whole puzzle is the most important because it's yellow and in the middle". You kinda need all the pieces to make the picture...

I think math and electronics should be sports with multi-million dollar contracts and endorsements. What Tom Brady should not be valued more than what engineers do in the lab.

Wealth inequality aside, a lot of people think that what they're doing should be elevated to be something super important. The truth is, most people just won't care about you or what you're doing, but some people do (or will do) and that's what matters.

I don't particularly like Tom Brady but I'll say that during all my time spend in various labs I never had to face 300+ lb linemen that wanted no more than to spread my internal organs across the field.

Electricity P=IV can be much more powerful than a 300lb lineman. Why don't women wait outside engineering labs trying to score with the engineers, instead of waiting outside athlete's locker rooms?

if you are having to deal directly with P=IV then you are screwing up your job.

Tom Brady has to worry about 300 lb linemen every play no matter how well he does his job.

Ha ha!

Firstly, what does it even mean to say "Electricity P=IV can be much more powerful than a 300lb lineman"? Not everyone would agree with that, depending on what you mean.

Everyone cares about different things. Some people care about football and want the team they support to do well, some don't. Some people care about having their electronic circuitry being well designed and working properly, some don't. You might care a lot about mathematical equations to describe electrical phenomena, but that doesn't mean everyone else does.

Secondly... "Why don't women wait outside engineering labs trying to score with the engineers?" ... I mean, c'mon. That sentence is just as daft as "Why don't people wait outside hospitals trying to score with surgeons?" or "Why don't people wait outside swimming pools to score with swimmers?".

Where did you come to the conclusion that women wait outside locker rooms trying to score with athletes? I have never met any women that would consider doing that, even though some of them have had a thing for athletes.

Finally... people like other people for all sorts of reasons. It's only natural that a fair number of those reasons involve fitness, looks, good body... whatever. If people told you that looks don't matter, they're wrong; it's just that looks aren't everything.

Girls don't care about looks and the body as much as guys do. It doesn't matter what you have between your legs. Size doesn't matter. Women care about money and success.

How do I apply math to electronics?

My electronics learning lab was designed and created by Forest Mimms. He was known in the 70's and 80's for writing all these electronics workbooks. He's not an engineer. He's just a regular guy with no engineering education. How was he able to make all these electronics kits and books for RadioShack and become famous?
