Fuck a whole bunch of Calculus

Wil: what are you majoring in?
theAlphaJohn: MIS - school of management
Will: right on
theAlphaJohn: i was a comp sci major the first decade i went to school, then i realized that the calculus parts of brain don't work
theAlphaJohn: like those cardboard tvs you see at furniture stores -- just for show / to take up space
Will: yeah
theAlphaJohn: so i switched over to mis when i came here
Will: i suck with complex numbers
Will: and formulas
theAlphaJohn: it's the analytical geometry shit that always gets me
Will: i rocked logic classes though
Will: and at mason, that's the same as math
Will: so it worked out
theAlphaJohn: basic derrivatives and integrals i get -- if you can turn a shirt inside out you can plug in numbers and turn a crank
Will: hahaha
theAlphaJohn: but when you get into "what is the area of an inside-out rhombus that's high on meth" my brain leaks out my ears
Will: understandable
Will: i want a rum based drink right now
theAlphaJohn: haha rum based
Will: and a hammock
theAlphaJohn: i look at calculus as a recruiting tool for the NSA, and not something one can even use in real live
Will: yeah
theAlphaJohn: i had a friend who worked at NSA, his coworker could think and operate comfortable in five dimensions
theAlphaJohn: apparently they had to write software to keep up with him
Will: hahaha
theAlphaJohn: i didn't even understand what that meant, and he tried to explain it to me and it still didnt make sense
theAlphaJohn: apparently in five dimensions, if you move like this (moves hand) then the opposite reaction is to move like this (moves hand)
Will: i have no idea what you are saying
theAlphaJohn: you may be thinking that this is a visual, but really it makes as much sense written out
theAlphaJohn: b/c you're like "you just moved your hand two different ways"
Will: exactly
theAlphaJohn: and that's why their parties are so fucking lame
Will: hahaha
