A few years before I was in her class, our chem teacher got pregnant by one of her students. She married him.

Chem teachers are just wonderful!

I'm sure many of the guys who had my teacher wanted to get her pregnant (at least she acted that way), but I never saw her as attractive...

I forgot to mention her voice... And she was always loud...

Ugh... Chem! blue-meanie

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I'm not taking chemistry this year luckily 

we only need two credits in science to graduate from my school and this year I'm taking biology for the second credit so I don't think I have to take chemistry at all

But geometry…paul-mccartneyI'm so bad at math. Bad doesn't even begin to describe my relationship to math 

I just can't wrap my mind around it. Algebra was hell

"But geometry…paul-mccartneyI'm so bad at math. Bad doesn't even begin to describe my relationship to math 

I just can't wrap my mind around it. Algebra was hell"

I had a math class called Probability and Statistics in college that was pure murder. The professor, who was actually an emeritus professor but still taught summer classes (which this class was) used to belittle his students constantly, me included. But one day he put this problem on the board and declared "If everyone gets this problem right, I'll buy you all a beer! But if at least one student gets it wrong, then you all must buy me a beer." Well, the day came, and half the class got it wrong. He wasn't serious about the beer thing, of course, but...

a-hard-days-night-george-10

Seeing an opportunity, after class that day, I went to the grocery store near campus, bought him a Corona and a lime, snuck it across campus, went to his office where luckily he was there, plopped the beer and lime on his desk and said "Here's your beer!" I'm certain I'm the first student who ever did that, because he looked SHOCKED. He tried to tell me I didn't have to, but I wasn't hearing it. He eventually accepted the beer, because hey, it's a beer he didn't have to pay for. If nothing else, if I was going to flunk this class, at least I could laugh about it later and tell this story to my son once he gets older.

So the summer class ends, and our grades go online. I log in, sure to see a big fat F on the report card. (Which, to be fair, I deserved.) Instead... I see a C.

To this day, I am convinced that beer passed me that class. Every semester since until I graduated, I kept checking that grade to make sure it wasn't retroactively changed. I mean, I graduated with honors, I got to go to Dallas, TX as part of a broadcasting seminar for mass comm majors, I even managed to seduce a cheerleader... but damn it, nothing will ever top passing a class thanks to a beer.

Moral of the story: there's not one. But since we're discussing math and terrible classes, I felt it was appropriate to put it here.

I pretty much sucked at everything with numbers: maths, physics, chemistry, you name it. I am great at calculating and counting, I was even in a special class for smart people who were good at calculating in primary school, but all the subjects I just mentioned..they were hell. I hated it, didn't find it interesting and I just didn't see it. My parents were very disappointed, especially my dad. One of his jobs was as a maths teacher at a University of Applied Sciences. And as I had always been the best of my class in everything, there was a huge pressure on me. Thankfully I could drop all those subjects except for maths. It was a nightmare. When I failed my pre-university education exams, due to maths and geography, another subject I sucked at, I chose to re-do the year, but in Higher General Secondary Education. I chose to step a level lower, because then I could drop maths. I knew I would fail again if I had kept it.

Okay, back to the discussion about technology. A while back this video was going around on Facebook. It was about the effects of Facebook on your life, especially your social life, and your mind. It was very true and everyone had seen it. I'll look if I can find it. It's sad, shocking and true.

I agree - we all have things we are good at and things we are not so good at.  I was struggling with Statistics in my Economics degree then had an 'aha' moment when it all fell into place - so much so that I ended up in a research position at the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

God bless those who excel at math- I just never did. The only classes I didn't get "A"s in college were the math classes, and one biology class. I got turned down by the university I wanted to go to because my math score on my ACT was bad. Never mind that the others were good, they couldn't get past that math grade. It worked out fine in the end, but for a long time that bothered me.

As I sit here munching a peanut butter and banana sandwich and looking back through this thread for something, I see that I missed some posts.

@trcanberra, I hope you are getting over your cold. And, who will your other half bug for a ride now?

@Expert Textpert, I think a pb & banana sandwich was an appropriate breakfast item to be consuming when I read your Elvis post. We can't wait for your review of Love. Have you decided what other things you are going to try to see while in Vegas (other than the Elvis statue)? Do you still have that list of things to do there that I finally got posted that time? All the problems I had getting that posted are coming back vividly into focus. It was all worth it though to help a friend out. Lastly, is it October yet?

Not October yet, I'm afraid, @Ahhh Girl.

At the moment I am being mostly bald. Up until Wednesday morning I was looking a cross between mid-'69 Lennon and Father Christmas. Father Lenmas! Woke up Wednesday morning, thought, "Fed up being hairy!" Picked up my hair clippers, and before I knew it I was bald and beardless. Now it's left to grow through to spring, when I'll have another shear.

Putting together new media files. Only had one working USB, so have been plugging things in and out. Majority of music on an external hard-drive, with selection on laptop of things being listened to. Bought a USB hub Tuesday, which means I can have my external 1TB plugged in all the time, and my new external writer. So now is the time to build a new music file on the external hard drive, rather than have things spread across lots of different places.

A task that will take weeks.

We are only going to be there for two days, but I plan to use your list as a guide while we are there. We are probably going to use "urban spoon" to check out the best vegetarian restaurants and stay away from smoky casinos and bars. I can't wait for October either.

Well it also greatly depends on your teacher. Last year I had this teacher... how I hated him. He would shout at you (with spit coming out paul-mccartney) If you didn't understand something, he would get all angry and embarrass you in front of the class. One day he was getting angry at everyone and no one really understood anything of the lesson anymore, but I could see none of them wanted to ask, in case he would humiliate them. However, one person said she didn't understand it, and yes indeed, he humiliated her, saying that he had already explained. So I shakily raised my hand and I asked him something like if he could explain it again, because the shouting wasn't helping and that he was discouraging students from asking questions by shouting (He always wants us to ask questions, but when we do he humiliates us) It took me so much courage to say that to him, I am a very shy person, but I thought someone ought to say it. Well he got vivid, he started shouting and saying to me "You always say that." Which was not true. And he went on with no one actually understanding it.

He was horrible at explaining anyway... Also for tests, if everyone did bad, he would blame us for it. 

 

But I have a new math teacher, who is great, so I am very glad!

Oh I've been traveling on a boat, and a plane, in a car (and a Vespa), on a bike, with a bus and a train. Travelling there and travelling here- everywhere in every gear!
