what sucks is now i cn't study for psats with anyone. I feel almost ambulatory at home hear and i just can't summon enough motivation to augment my efforts at studying. OUr ancillary study group at simuw seemed very trenchant for the somewhat arbitrary time it was in place. god im board.

guys guys!! funny math quote:

Ask her to wait a moment - I am almost done. Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) , while working, when informed that his wife is dying.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen: whatever you say to them they translate into their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)

and a serious one:

I am become death, shatterer of worlds. Robert J. Oppenheimer (1904-1967) , citing from the Bhagavadgita, after witnessing the world's first nuclear explosion

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to build bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning." Robert Cringley
