When you are in the express check out line and you only have one item with you, and the person in front of you has WAY more then the "allowed" amount.
I try to be patient with such things, but when the person in front of you has many times over the amount and there are other lines (non-express) open, it can get bothersome.  >:(

16 to 20 inches of snow tonight into Sunday. And cold....really cold!
I'm jealous.

You can have the cold....might be a bit uncomfortable for a Malagator!
  :D

Much like Rocket we have a few inches here. It's been windy but has calmed down. Dropped to the single digits.

But no worries, it'll all melt by Thursday  :P

We got 18 inches between Saturday night into Sunday. Now it is bone chilling cold. -5 right now.

Temps in the single digits tonight. Slight warmup for Mon., Tues., and Weds., then bone chilling temps again in the single digits for Fri., Sat., and Sun.  :o

Good thing I stocked up on hot chocolate.

Math for the sake of math. It's a language that should be known, yes, especially as an engineer. You don't teach someone code by pulling random words out of a dictionary and pretending they are commands, you don't teach driving signage by making up arbitrary symbols and painting them bright colors and then saying the have meaning. These say nothing but gibberish, despite being languages, so why, why on this giant ball of half molten rock and life bearing crust is math taught that way?!

I passed math in HS with D's, failing one of the classes and taking it twice. I took physics, which sounds like it wouldn't make sense, but I wanted to know how the world worked, didn't care for biology and hated chemistry.

But I loved physics. For the first time in my life algebra made sense. I finally understood the meaning in it, and how to use it. I did really well in the class, took a second year in HS, and aced it. We did a lab with an air rocket, calculating it's trajectory and trying to hit a 6x10 tarp about a hundred yards away or so. We were launching the rocket three times and noting where our math was corrected each time. My teacher stood in the middle of it and said if we hit the tarp we get a B even if we didn't do the report, and if we hit him we get an A. My first was at his feet. He caught the second chest level and told me to go into artillery.

Now I'm staring at transfer functions that are supposed to describe a change in a signal, and I might as well be trying to read Dutch. The letters are the same for the most part. I can even guess at some of the words. I still have no clue what is happening. What the heck is a "signal"? I know what the word means, but I do not see what they are talking about, nor why I would need to manipulated it (I know there are reasons. I've even used them myself, but why and what for matters in understanding). It's just numbers and letters and symbols, all vomited onto paper that are supposed to mean something if I pretend the right way.  >:(

Yup! I get all of that. Was a math minor and STILL did not understand the purpose of most of it! I think it was invented so people's brains had to do back flips while staring at a book and/or computer screen.
