My maths is full of eels.

Thirded. It's almost like seeing how the magician makes the rabbit appear out of the hat, or something.

Also, milich's post made me laugh until I hurt.

edit - oh, and Ares *would* get bonus points over Adaberk for looking some ******** awesome with it's huge spikes and ****, but we live in a world where .dat swaps exist, so it's a non-issue.

I'll just close my eyes and think of Pahn,

Just think of every question in terms of war. "If this is your % of the DoT, what's wrong with the mnk in the party?"
"If you're at a party, and the ratio of babes:hags is 36:1, what is the likelihood of pulling a babe?"

I know the answer to the second one.

Still slim to none.

OK, so my exam went really well, seems morale is a deciding factor after all.

Only had to shut my eyes and think once, and if my thoughts had sound then that one incident would have gone:

{Pahn} you're in an exam, stop pestering me and go away

Accordingly, I indulged in a pint of celebratory Guinness afterwards.

I've essentially been home no more than half an hour XD

State-Based learning FTW! It's scientifically proven that if you keep yourself in the same state while studying you will remember things better.*


I just finished all my exams today. The Understanding of Music class final (I needed to take it for LER credit) was stupidly easy, Japanese was easy, Chemistry was hard (since I suck at math) but i still think I did well, and Invertebrate Zoology was fairly easy as well.





*NOTE: That only applies to when you're remembering things in that state, e.g.g if you're drunk while studying you'll remember more when you are drunk than you would normally remember. Whether this is enough to beat being sober during the exam, I doubt it.

What works really well for me when I'm studying is green tea; though I always drink it super strong (or strong matcha) with nothing added because I'm hardcore like that yo.

And this week I had two tests, I was constantly high for 1-2 days and got high last night before I went to bed for my optics test in the morning. I was studying high and I'm positive I did better than all my friends. Definitely going to need some for studying for my upcoming philosophy exam... And I got some spice diamond spirit today, but I rather go with the tried and true before trying it with studying.

There really is merit to that I think, on a purely scientific level... I never did that **** during any of my exams in college, but being more relaxed during an exam is never a bad thing. One of the worst things for me and the reason i do terrible on non-written exams is that I second-guess myself. If I just didn't give a ****, I'd probably pick the right answer every time. An artificially clear head is probably better for that **** than a worried and stressed one.

Now don't get my wrong work isn't much better than that but... BUT, they pay me to do it ^^d, and in all honestly I think I spend less time than I use to do with school, come on I spend more time reading/writing in Alla than doing actual work >.>;

No, a backwards zebra the way I imagine it is a black zebra with white stripes rather than the other way round.

Here's a zebra:

The Onion has been around foreverrrr. Just imagine the news reporting the truth.

They have many articles, pictures, radio, charts, videos, etc that are, for the most part, hilarious.

Just troll their video section for titles of videos that sound awesome. Or any other part of their site. Some of my memorable favourites;
http://www.theonion.com/content/video/sony_releases_new_stupid_piece_of (newish)
http://www.theonion.com/content/node/30157
http://www.theonion.com/content/video/manufacturer_recalls_hollow_point

http://www.theonion.com/content/video/live_from_congress_the_skull
http://www.theonion.com/content/video/survivors_of_gas_station (released when gas was expensive)

For the "American Voice" section, there's are always three public opinions for some topic and one of them is always from a systems analyst.

Since 90% of the player base say "wtf is algebra!!!! zmfg I cand do matz" honestly I won't be surprised if ppl start quitting after finding a way to apply calculus to game equations.

You see, that's useful calculus. In my first year I had to do an assload of Pure Mathematics which, as it stands, rarely sees practical use -- it abated a little bit this year, with some more Applied Mathematics creeping in, but there's still too much Pure. I want to learn useful stuff, dammit, not triple integration into a four-dimensional vector space.

Nah, our calculus class is equally useless. Our mechanics class on the other hand is awesomely practical. I have 8 exams over the next week, including the 2 I've already sat, and in them is a grand total of 21 hours of maths-related examination, and 3 hours of essay writing.

Not easy.

hahaha so true. My major requirements forced me to take 3 semesters of calculus with actual math professors. Learned almost nothing useful. Then I had to take a course called Mathematical Methods for Physics Majors. In that one semester I relearned how to actually use Calculus as well as Linear Algebra and basic to moderate Diff Eq's including **** like separation of variables and Bessel Functions. In one semester. Physics is where its at if you want to learn what math is actually for.

I had 3 semesters of calc as well, first semester was mostly HS though. I think people get a better understanding of calc when they apply what they learn to simple (meaning; no stupid complex integrals) physics problems, especially E&M.

You gotta see the big pictures my fellow Wars.

Even when calculus, E&M, discreet Mathematics, or other pure abstract subjects never have a real repercussion, impact and/or application in our daily basis the fact is that all those disciplines push or mental capacity to an abstract limit that is practically impossible to reach otherwise.

For starters calculus let you understand(at least form a mathematical point of view ) how a 4th, 5th, 6th, n-th dimension behaves, this have been important throw the curse of history to allow the great mind to realize one simple fact: there are many things that we can't detect with our 5 basic senses but still exist and have an impact in our life.

Besides isn't a coincidence that most math gurus here have mathematical/engineering oriented carriers/aspirations (in before Pahn come with his philosophic stuff)

Just a thought.
