There's always this slightly bitter taste in my mouth. Started a few days ago ... doesn't matter whether my mouth is open or closed.

I take it you've tried brushing your teeth, flushing and mouth wash right?

 

Sounds like you have an infection in your mouth. Go to the doctors or a dentist.

Yeah, though it tends to stay away for a few hours after I did that. And it's less bitter when I'm salivating.

 

I'll just drink more water regularly, dont actually think it's an infection.

I know you don't need to know that, but that's a German keyboard.

Also, Alt+Shift changes the keyboard language in Windows, in case you do that on accident again.

Kirby, reading is THE best way of learning a language. I learned my basic English thanks to Yugioh cards :P


Matt: You want that eh? You want everything good for you. You want everything that's--falls off garbage can

Camera guy: Whoa, haha, are you okay dude?

Matt: You want anything funny that happens, don't you?

Camera guy: still laughing

Matt: You want the funny shit that happens here and there, you think it comes out of your [bleep]ing [wagon] pushes garbage can down, don't you? You think it's funny? It comes out of here! running towards Camera guy

Camera guy: runs away still laughing

Matt: You think the funny comes out of your mother[bleep]ing creativity? Comes out of Satan, mother[bleep]er! nn--ngh! pushes Camera guy down

Camera guy: Hoooholy [bleep]!

Matt: FUNNY ISN'T REAL! FUNNY ISN'T REAL!

Alright, here's the deal.

 

I do AMAZINGLY in pretty much everything at school, but the two things I fall flat in are ASL (American Sign Language), and Math.

 

It's always been this way, and it's really ruining everything. At first I didn't know how I could be doing so good in everything BUT those two things. But I think I figured it out:

 

Both of these things are based on memorization. ASL you memorize the signs and grammar, Math you memorize a few dozen different formulas and rules at the same time. I have absolutely no ability to memorize. Anything. Ever. Tried increased studying and going to extra help, but no good, I just cannot memorize, no matter what extra things or tricks I try.

 

Then I thought, but why am I good at English? Isn't that memorization too? Well English, firstly it's my native language, I was raised with it from the beginning. Second, all we do is read books. I can remember the plot of a story, provided it's interesting. ASL and Math aren't interesting.

 

So the question I'm asking is, is there any way out of these classes? I'm pretty convinced by this point that I literally cannot learn it, and though what they think they're teaching wouldn't really help me if I was able to learn it, it can certainly do alot of damage to my grades if I don't. And I don't think marching into the dean's office and saying "I want out because I can't" is something that would go over well.

 

Like I said, I've tried to just get through it, but it's all memorization, and no matter how much extra time I put in, no matter what new tricks I try, I just can't learn it.

Take all the books you have (at least 30), write down the first paragraph in each of them, learn one of them every week. Recite all the paragraphs you've learned every week as well.

Write all the formulas down. If you cant use notes on a test, program all the formulas into your calculator. If you don't have a calculator that can do that, buy one.

Some people are good at math and some people aren't, that's usually how things go. I personally love math (don't love all the work involved but that's not the point) because it either is or isn't, it's not some abstract guess work at what Mark Twain meant in his sentence. However, I do bull [cabbage] like a pro, and you can't do that in math.

 

I wish I could actually help, but I'm not sure how I could do that. And the only signs I know are a few letters and a line from a barney song we learned back in kindergarten in sign language I remember some how.

Well there are probably less expensive ways to cheat... But it's not going to help you learn anything.

 

I'm positive there is nothing wrong with your memory skills, or you would have struggled with learning across the board from an early age. I never liked maths much either and never really tried, but most of it is just practice. The more you practice using rules and formulas, the more likely you are to retain that information.

 

Out of interest, why do you have to learn ASL?

Thanks for all the advice guys, I appreciate it :thumbup:

 

To answer your question Jeff, I don't think I do. You're just required to learn a language, presumably to keep us off the streets for an extra 42 minutes a day.

 

Someone before said to use a calc, and thats a damn good point that I believe the government is actually considering. Math is obsolete. You need to know basic math, adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying. After that though, unless you seek special training for a job that will teach you that stuff anyway, all you really need to know is how to string these together into something a calculator can read. Replace Math with that, really. I'm not spending summer in a 90 degree room because I don't know how to do things a calculator can do in the blink of an eye.

 

They say it's because they don't want us getting too dependent on a calculator. Screw that, the only way something like that would be completely unavailable would be in an emergency situation, and in an emergency situation, the last thing I'm going to do is start adding or subtracting. Or signing, for that matter.

 

10 years ago, when I started school, teachers would say that not everything can be solved by a calc. Well, time goes on, technology advances, I can get my vaccines sucked up my nose now rather than a painful injection, and they have calculators for everything.

Most scientific calculators can get you through most of uni and definitley highschool.. Basic mental arithmetic actually helps in exams. Adding, subtracting, multiplication. No need to punch in xyz. Saves time. We were allowed to use calculators, but unless it's absolutley required it slows you down.

 

Remembering math forumulas and etc... learn from first principles. Instead of just trying to learn it by rote [which some people can do], instead know how to derive it, if and when you need it. You get a better understanding, and if you forget you can get "back". [Though some formulas are paticularly longwinded, etc... like the quadratic, perpendicular distance, product of roots, most trigonometric identities]

Well, let me put it more this way. Think of what I can do, and what we've been at for the past week or so, as my RAM. The rest of the Math I've learned is my stupid Windows 95 hardrive.

 

We'll learn about something for a week, it'll all be fresh in my RAM, a test or quiz comes, and they'll pull a [bleep] move extraordinaire and bring something up from the inaccessible hardrive.

I always just made programs for all the formulas in high school math, personally. That way all I had to do was enter in my numbers and get an answer. :thumbup:

 

And as far as it went to I will say that actually sitting down and programing a math problem (a formula) helped me learn it more so than any simple memorization. At that point by the test I was just saving time.

I am not a math wiz or anything. I'm a lot like you, I can't memorize a thing, ever, unless I'm really interested in it. I could never learn my lines for a play, I just read through the script once and BSed my way through the entire play. I got so pro I always got the lead parts :P

 

anyways do what I did. Look at each question as a puzzle. They always tell you exactly what you want. So just take the information you need, and try and figure out how you can put all the pieces together to get what you want. Admittedly it might take some practice. but it got me through basic algebra and as soon as I did what was required I never thought about algebra again lol

I had never heard anyone complaining about maths needing too much memory. Usually there are problems when the student learns formulas without really understanding them.

What grade are you in and what gives you trouble?

actually most of the time all I hear is people complaining about how math is just memorization. But thats not even close.

 

I did never get past algebra 1, I don't see the need to count past 4 in my life.

 

BTW that was a music reference :P

Well, my memory is like a shaky straw skyscraper built on a windy seaside swamp and yet I've always been good at maths, so I just doubt you are taking the right approach to it if you say it's too difficult because of the memorisation.

To the women of tip.it; I'm trying to find out what kind of earrings you like seeing guys wearing. Big flashy bling-bling, large/small plugs or how about tribal stuff? I am aware some women hate earrings on guys... I'm only interested in the ones who are.

A lot of girls I know really dig gauges - tiny ones. I wouldn't say go with anything big or "blingy" unless that's your usual style. Small, black - I've been looking at those kinds.

I guess a single plain-ish sud would be acceptable, I have a friend who pulls off that look quite well, but I think it just comes down to a case by case basis as to whether it would look good or not.

If you go to a 00 on barrels it won't stretch them enough for them not to go back to a normal shape, and 00 barrels look good IMO. I've got some 16's that I need to put in, but I haven't pierced my ears yet, I need to do it soon.
