Anyone wanna explain physics to me? :(

What part of physics?
"Magnetic fields due to currents" and "Electromagnetic oscillations and alternating current"

Maths on an energy level. No joke, that's basically it.

 

All you have to do is remember to focus on the numbers and formulas like any old math equation, don't focus on the "If the TARDIS is a muti-unversal time-traveling etc etc that is capable of blah blah with the chances of blah".

Yeah that's what I try to do, but that's really only good enough for a C

Making vector charts and memorizing formulas got me an A in physics. Also my balsa wood bridge was the second most efficient school wide. I should have gone to school for civil engineering...

Yes, you absolutely should have.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I made a cube thing out of balsa wood once.  It held >50 lbs I believe, although it was only several inches on a side.  And in fact it was the glue that broke down, not even the wood XD.

Mine was an A frame but I decided the top weight was unnecessary. My bridge was like .6 lbs but held nearly 90 lbs

 

(45 degree angles are your friend)

Yeah math and physics is pretty easy if you are even mildly interested in learning it. (ie: doing more then the bare ass minimum your teacher tells you to do). 

 

But then again I guess that goes for just about anything.

My friend just invited me to a book signing that his friend (and my... acquaintance that I'm on good terms with? I'm not good with this kind of thing.) invited him to. I told him that I'd definitely be interested in going, but the main reason I said that I'm interested is because I see this as an opportunity to expand my social life (Which is far below average, but slowly growing) and potentially do something afterwards. The book signing is a state over (NYC) and would cost a non-negligible sum of money to get to and buy the book. I'm kind of confused as to what the intentions of the people going are (If they just want to go there, get a book signed, and then come back) and I don't want to just ask "DO YOU WANT TO DO STUFF IN THE CITY AFTER WE GET THE BOOK SIGNED???" because I'm not really in charge of this event and I don't want to appear uninterested in the author (Bill Nye (Don't get me wrong, I watched the show as a kid, but apparently he's more politically involved now or something and I know that's a touchy area.)) and I don't know if the hanging out afterwards is implied or not. I'm like 90+% sure I'm going to go even if it's just for the book signing because I have nothing going on that day and even if it's just for the book signing, I guess it would be a good bonding experience or something, but I'd really like to do something afterwards because I feel like the excursion would kind of be a waste of money if it's just to buy a book and get it signed. I feel like I'm just repeating myself at this point, so I'll try to wrap this post up.

 

Would it be weird to suggest that we do something afterwards? I don't even know what that something would be, but even if it's just wandering around in the city, I feel like it could be fun. What would you guys do if you were in my shoes?

 

Sorry if this belongs in another thread. I just don't want to bump something that hasn't been posted in in several months.

Be honest and tell him you are interested but it's kind of a long trip, and ask him if there's any other cool things to do in the vicinity while you're over there.  If he's doing other things/looking for people to join him, he should get the hint.  Or maybe that's too subtle :P.

Best way I would think is (NYC right?) Just say you are interested and would like to check out *insert attraction here* while there if they don't mind. If it is as long a trip as you say they shouldn't have an issue and good times should be had.

It's not normal to assume you're doing anything after an event like that, but it is normal to ask. Ask your friend what his plans were after MEETING BILL [bleep]ING NYE and see if you an sway him into going to a bar or something. NYC is a great place to broaden your horizons. I suggest a hookah bar, as drinks in NYC are hella expensive. Don't forget - even the road trip upstate is a bonding experience. Share some music and talk about things on the way up. Maybe even discuss what you're doing after you get your book signed. Feel free to suggest whatever if your buddy doesn't have any other plans. If he has social skills and has open plans, he'll notice you are looking for something to do and invite you along.

Cramming for a discrete midterm tommorow. I think I got it down, I just gotta memorize a few notational stuff. The main thing that worries me this teacher is a math guy and loves number theory shit, and his lectures are proof heavy. So Im just really hoping he doesn't do that shit.

 

Other then that I should be fine I hope

 

but so far its pretty easy, got truth and tautologies, predicates,sets, functions, relations, wish me luck :lol:

I even miss symbols that represent numbers now, now its just symbols that represent collections of stuff which may or not be numbers

 

But then again thats what CS is all about, the quickest way to do things to your collections of stuff and things

You say that, but I assume you're fairly decent at math, so it's easy for you to just be like "It's easy if you just put in the work." But if you had a bad teacher in elementary who didn't correctly teach you addition, or even worse, a bad class in middle/high school and didn't learn algebra, you are 100% ducked for every math heavy class from that point on. And algebra is legitimately very difficult to learn, there's a lot of abstraction away from 3 apples and 3 apples make 6 apples, and that abstraction is difficult to learn if you don't have the right mind.

Today is an interesting day already...it was so warm in my room I woke up soaked in sweat, despite having the A/C on in both rooms and the window open  :rolleyes:.  And then when I went running, three intersections in a row (with fairly major roads) were flashing red/yellow traffic signals.  I don't know if it's an extremely localized blackout or some coincidental malfunction with them, but weird in any case.
