[Shared] Complex Relationship, or Imaginary?

via 9gag
Discovered the above picture on 9gag and I just have to say something here.

Actually, it should be 'imaginary' instead of 'complex'. For it to be 'complex', there must be both the real part and the imaginary part, expressed in conjugate pairs. Regarding the above picture, squarerooting negative one will result in i, the imaginary number, which by itself is not yet a complex quantity.
