Now my eyes are open and I understand things like love and peace and happiness… except calculus. I will never understand that a-hard-days-night-ringo-13


Just Sing All You Need Is Love With your calculator in hand and the answers will appear on it
 

This  just happened to me:

 

I pick up a calculator

*sings All You Need Is Love*

 

Stupid calculater won't turn on.

The power of love killed my calculator.

 

I hate numbers.

*looks down*

What an appropriate post to get a 9 on.

Why is everyone hating on calculus? I love calculus!

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I was able to skip out on calculus both in high school and college, but I recently took and economics class that I was really interested in, so I see where you're coming from.

It seems like the people who like calculus are the ones NOT in highschool. Or am I wrong?

Does math get more fun once you graduate? a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 

Now let's see… before I discovered the Beatles my walls were bare.

Before the Beatles I was also a pretty big Gorillaz fan. Anyone heard of them?

We'll see if I find math fun or useful after I graduate. :P
But as of now I find it boring and repetitive. Although kudos to you MMM for finding it fun. means you'll actually enjoy yourself in class while I sit there banging my head against the desk.
I feel like i've derailed us here. We should probably get back on topic. :)

I was close minded, something that this band and this forum broke

and 17 meant nothing to me

…I didn't realize that the guys who were responsible for my "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" and "Bangla Desh" 45s had once been in a band together. And I didn't know who did "Yellow Submarine" or that "Hey Jude" song that my Mom would occasionally sing. Then I turned six.

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

Ha ha! I probably did the same thing at the same age, wondering why this old guy was on MTV all the time. a-hard-days-night-paul-2

well my dad has always been a Beatles fan so i kind of would have an idea of who they were but i never payed any attention to them or their music. Before the Beatles all i heard was pop and hip hop or watever new song was popular on the radio…a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 I still can't believe that i would prefer that music instead of the Beatles!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

…every song I knew was sung by "Big Bird", "Ernie and Bert" or "Oscar the Grouch". They were usually sponsored by a letter and a number.

Then, when I was 4 years old, something Magical  happened.

Before I discovered the Beatles I was very young. I was already getting excited about music and like artists like Elvis, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins and all the late 50's and early 60's music especially the Beach Boys.

I''l try not to be like it:

 

There's no "before Beatles" for me, they were always there, even if I didn't see them.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Oh god, well, my mum and my sisters played Beatles songs when I was little, and I remembered the first lyrics of Norwegian Wood

"Iiiii once had a giirl, or should I saay, she once had meee a-hard-days-night-john-7"

And when I was listening to a Beatles radio thing, they played that song, and I actually shouted "THAT'S THE ONE I REMEMBER!! a-hard-days-night-george-9" at my desk when I heard those lyrics I remembe-- since when did this become a nostalgia rant thread? a-hard-days-night-paul-4

 

But anyway, yeah.

I used to listen to the hip hop and pop stations on my radio, and I iked it, a-hard-days-night-paul-3 but then, on my birthday, I asked for YAY BEATLES ROCKBND, and  it saved. My. Life.

SAVED IT. a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

 

Oh, and, in addition to the whole hip hop and (c)rap and pop thing, I was cutting myself and being a scene fag. Pardon my language.  a-hard-days-night-paul-4

1. I laughed out loud at that.

2. I really, really hope "Magical" does not refer to Magical Mystery Tour. Because that album really stinks! (ESPECIALLY ITS TITLE TRACK!) (BUT NOT THE LAST TRACK OF SIDE ONE!) (OR MOST OF SIDE TWO!)

*removes M3's dagger from heart*

Yes, it was MMT. That was the first album my cousins turned me on to. There is a generation whose imagination was sparked by Smurfs. There is another generation that had their imagination fueled by Teletubbies.

My imagination was fed by a Walrus.a-hard-days-night-john-7

 

That could also explain my fondness for seafood.
