That was one forceful pun.

I had a student at work today in business calculus, who was unable to tell me how to find the area of a triangle. Or how to subtract 18-6 without checking her calculator. When I told her .5*12*10 was 60 without using a calculator, she thought I was a super genius. It took all of my willpower to stay professional. Honestly, how do you pass your college entrance exams with that sort of math performance?

I weep for businesses. If this is the caliber of person they put into accounting or finance, then we are screwed.

EDIT: It's looking like an all-nighter! I might actually be awake when you European-types are.

My maths isn't that great.

But I have no dreams of making a career in finance/accounting, even though that sought of math is easy.

Your math skills might not be great, but I have hope that you can subtract two numbers less than 20 from each other. This was an impossible task for this girl.

Also, I'm liking the blue-green stripe on the avatar. Kinda reminds me of old CRT monitors when they're starting to die.

Or in the case of where I work - a certain LCD monitor.

Really just monitors in general.

EDIT: Also writing reports on CFD codes sucks. I've got three to do tonight, and my first one was 68 pages.

Phew, all done. Ironically, my last one was the longest in terms of word-count, but shortest in terms of page length. Only three figures in that one, as opposed to the 60 or so I had in the first.

Now to sleep in a chair in the lobby for three hours or so until I have to wake up again. Joy.

Everyday you seem to become more and more Professor-like... I'd say it's a matter of weeks before you start going loony and start engineering warheads

Yeah, well, it goes with the trade. One of my profs has a facebook photo album of his work, and I kid you not, the title is

"My work! - If you call me geek I rip off your balls!"

Nix that couple hours of sleep thing, I managed like one before I woke up. Today is going to be a day full of coffee. Coffee and baseball though! It's very likely I'm going to be loopy by the end of the day, if not already.

You've been loopy for years. No need for worrying about it.

I do that right now.

Well. Not work, really. But I am watching two games of football, while listening to a third simultanious. On two screens.
