This is most definitely the time in the semester that you burn your textbook in effigy as a sacrifice on the altar to zultar for good luck. I'm 100% sure on that.

what you should be asking yourself is why you have to memorize so much damn stuff when in any real-world scenario or job, memorization is near pointless, and will occur naturally over time and with repetition, and also forcing it into your head now is detracting from your ability to tackle the conceptual side of mathematics, which is where we need advancements the most.
Integrals are the area under a curve....A volume is an area in 3 Dimensions

i passed the AP test, but that wasn't because of problem-solving skills, that was purely through memorizing en masse formulas and equations.

i'm good at internalizing this stuff, but i'm naturally gifted at math. the way math is taught in school is a bit of a joke tho

the death of college: pursuit of grades instead of knowledge. why even go to college?

CAPT Brad: Maybe, just maybe, you can find your answer in the core requirements that most colleges enforce.
JamesYanik (548 D)
24 Apr 17 UTC
my core requirements demand that as an Economics major, i have to take a certain number of credit hours in diversity and culture classes.

because this is not about being prepared for the job market or to be able to innovate and pursue your own career. It is truly about indoctrination and trying to keep kids tied to academia for as long as possible.

long live the reptilian overlord liberal agenda

James Yanik: I don't agree. Taking varied courses is good in a liberal college education. Unless you go to a technical college (which you don't), you should be taking courses outside your major(s) that reflect your interests and vision of yourself. It's being forced to take particular courses that is problematic.
JamesYanik (548 D)
25 Apr 17 UTC
the problems is that technical colleges don't generally have superior courses in STEM fields, when compared to higher-end liberal colleges. Given that i'm paying tuition, i'd like to have control of my course schedule. Even if i simply didn't get a degree but was proficient in the fields i were studying then i'd be satisfied, but the college system is not designed that way. Rather i must either accept a mediocre standard of teaching for a good price, or in my case i'm working my ass off in an attempt to get a better quality job after i graduate.

meanwhile i'm not against all these classes being offered, or against the basis of kids circling back into academia. rather having these as requirements to have a major in economics seems a bit of a non-sequitur, UNLESS there is a separate agenda, beyond simply education of the students in the fields they want to explore.

this is frequently the case in modern colleges, who are always on the search for kids to stick with the university long term. this may be against the wishes of some students, but i happens all the same.

they should do the weeding out before they are admitted to college. oh! that was an anti-diversity remark! College has ceased to be the vessel to pass on civilization. now it is a thought police mill

and the great crime is that you have to mortgage your future in student loans for the privilege to be indoctrinated.
For somebody who uses calculus every day (engineering) I remember shockingly little about it...
JamesYanik (548 D)
25 Apr 17 UTC
i don't think the econ department is deciding this, but it's still obnoxious. i think it's a requirement for all students in college of A&S but still. obnoxious.

still, it was fun to see the safespaces and #resist in chalk after election day. and i don't even consider my college to be excessively liberal. it's private and in Oklahoma. that's redder than a Frank Miller meets Zack Snyder movie extravaganza

NHL sucks
I honestly challenge anyone who obviously knows nothing about hockey to keep high morale when the refs are literally maliciously trying to throw the game. I've never seen worse reffing in a series, and anyone who doesn't realize these are humans that actually get effected when the ref delibrately tries to blow a series against your team, should realize that it makes your team feel like they are skating though glue.

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?
