|This is what you get when you have three math majors living together:
C- "We're just groupies."
C- "Can you field that one?"
Me- "Someone's going to put a ring around your neck and tighten it for that one."
C- "That would be ideal."
Me- "Abelian puns already and you just have to add another."
H- "This is why we don't make abstract algebra puns."
H- "Because they're horrible." Current Mood: amused
|The quote of the day:
"Someone has a convergent series that solves the three-body problem. Unfortunately, to be useful, it takes about 10^8,000,000 terms to get enough accuracy. This is where mathematicians and computer scientists disagree. Mathematicians call this solved, and computer scientists laugh." Current Mood: amused
I'm sitting in on another class tomorrow. It's called applied.
Wait for it...
You know, applied. Knot theory.
Bad line of the day:
This stuff is done at temperatures of about four Kelvin.
Woah. That's cool. Current Mood: amused
I'm looking at the REU applications, and I ran across this:
"3. If you believe that you can contribute to the diversity of the campus or Physics REU program, please do so by checking this box [ ]"
How does checking this box contribute to the diversity of the campus? Filling out the application doesn't even mean that I will be accepted to the REU program there. Or does it mean that I've contributed to the diversity of the campus because now the campus trash will include a piece of paper touched by a diverse person?
I suppose what I have to say about all this diversity stuff is (wait for it...): De longer I read it, diverse it gets. Current Mood: amused
