Differential Equations sucks. It's making me have to remember a bunch of Cal 2 **** I never learned. Hard to remember **** when you never learned it in the first place. The D.E isn't really that bad though.

All you engineering folks better pay attention in Cal 2. **** will come back and whoop your ***.

I liked Diff E.Q. it was applicable and made the most sense. For engineering majors don't worry you will never need it again at least no in any field that will make you money.

If engineers don't use D.E.'s, who does?

And the only thing I remembered from thermodynamics was that everything tends towards disorder (entropy). ****, I didn't need a college course to teach me that. Any man who's ever dated a woman, or who has raised teenagers, knows that.

I beg to differ, unless my paychecks have been coming in the form of buttons. I better look into that

Agreed. Nobody wants to pay anyone to optimize things to the accuracy available from calculating, unless product is massproduced and there will be returns for the time invested. Even then, the persons determining which things to calculate makes more money than the person doing the calculating.

Hmm; I'm glad the same mentality isn't followed by those who design nuclear plants and the like. It's not always about money.

I laugh as my only math prereq was finite math (Venn diagrams, methods of apportionment) and liberal arts math (simple interest, pie charts, and logic).


If am in Florida, then I do not love math and I am not an engineering major.

T --->( T ^ ~T)

T ---> F

See my math taught me that the statement I just said is false, even though I know it to be true.

Venn diagrams are more logic than math.

and your statement doesn't make sense.

perhaps if you said:
1. all floridians hate math.
2. liking math is required to be an engineer.
3. I live in florida and therefore cannot be an engineer

it might make more sense. but still be "invalid" because not all the premises are true.

It was a joke. I barely remember any of that. Point is, for liberal studies they don't give a **** what kind of math you do.
