General Discussion / Re: What to do with a math degree
« Last post by alexbutterfield on Today at 02:18:18 AM »
I'm starting at UC Davis this week. Studying Math (Advanced Calculus and Intro to Advanced Math are my first semester classes).

I'm taking these because I got A's through all my math classes up to Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, and I enjoyed learning that material.

Are you transferring as a junior?  Or are they teaching Differential Equations in HS now?

I'm transferring as a junior from Sierra College.
Hey, I have 3 AS's and one AA from Sierra College.   $10 each at the time.  I must have been a better student than you, I went on to Cal Poly SLO. :P

I had one of the best and and one of the worst teachers there, both in Math. 

As a side note, even though I'm a libertarian.  The junior college system in CA is great.  Gives poor kids and bad students a second chance at a reasonable price.

I've got to know... who were these teachers. You don't have to say who was good or bad.

I think they have a fantastic math department at Sierra at the moment. When I was there it was a great community to be part of. I'm not fully transitioned to Davis yet, and miss the community at Sierra a LOT. it's a great little college.

Shit happens... and it often sucks.

On a lighter note, I had a really nice ride today.  Made it all the way around the local loop (10.5km) without putting a foot down.  Glad I hadn't heard the above story before the ride!

That's very convincing and a good guess, but we still don't know!  :laugh:

Hahahaha gorram! We don't know anything more than last week!

We now know the Man in Black is super wealthy. Enough that he has his own charitable foundation.

My new theory on the Man in Black is that he is the son of Arnold.
Arnold as a creator would have had a large share in the company, that passed to his heirs.

The park staff sign off on his mayhem and demands without question. I would assume anyone else asking for pyrotechnics would at least be given some thought before it was allowed.
"Mr Arnoldsson" gets what ever he wants. When he wants.

He's the right age. Ed Harris is 65. Arnold, if he was still alive would be late 80's/early 90s.
He looks older than Ford in the photo. We know they started on the park at least 63 years ago. 3 years to get started. 30 years of development. Open for 30 years.

MiB is interested in Arnold's legacy.

My guess is he is looking for answers to why his father was thrown out of the project and possibly vengeance for his death. Suicide? etc

It would be ironic if he is Arnold's son seeing that Arnold was the more optimistic of the 2 creators. He thought most people would want the virtuous storylines, and Ford thought they'd want the depraved storylines.
Games / Re: Any Battlefield 1 players?

Where else but the games world would Battlefield 1 come out "after" Battlefield 2, 3 and 4.  ;)

That would be as silly as calling the 3rd console in a series "one"  ;D

I will be playing this on XBox One at some stage, but probably not until I get through a bit of a backlog of games I have.
Not before summer is over. So at least another 4 months or so.

General Discussion / Re: Prying Apart The Artist And The Art

I hope that, as an artist, my work never has to be separated from my politics or opinions. My art tends to be blandly political (in that I make a lot of gay things, but they aren't necessarily political commentary).

Understanding an artist, who they are and what they thought, is pretty important to understanding art. I find that generic 'appreciation' without any sort of understanding is shallow and boring. Ymmv.
