Linusespause I tell those people (in private) they might want to reconsider their path and if the effort it will take to learn the massive infomration and concepts is worth it
jonnyd7606 or a recovering drunk
JOPACITA i was going to be a poli sci major until i learned that statistics was required
ruphisleaking ive never even heard of a drunk called an aa
MobiusTruth jopa...i am unconvinced that very many students don't "have the stuff." i tend to believe there are other factors at work.
onvintagetime Linus very diplomatic and graceful
Linusespause Jopa.. my son did that evaluation, too.. he ended up goinog to law school
ruphisleaking its pronounced "aaah" in jopas neighborhood
JOPACITA lol me too linus

JOPACITA hey it paid off the house
JOPACITA so it's ok
sharwarspitz JOPA seems like a fancy pance. Which is fine.
jonnyd7606 "It was my understanding that there would be no math on this test.."
onvintagetime define' fancy pance'
jolaypaz2 does pance count as a word in wordy?(snickers)
onvintagetime lol J
JOPACITA i have no problem with math concepts,i get logic, it's when they put numbers into the mix
Linusespause my son is an inveterate public service person... if he had his way he'd just be the invisible person with some politician he likes
onvintagetime get out of my head
tempeau2 shar,too fancy for our blood
JOPACITA i glaze over

VASALL numbers mean profits
sharwarspitz I am basic, but
VASALL its fun to stay up late counting profits
sharwarspitz i know the fancy pance drill.
Linusespause Jopa... it's like statistics... the computers do all the fancy analyses.. but you have to understand how they got the results
jonnyd7606 A train is going from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia at 80 MPH,,,
JOPACITA lol yes linus like learning a slide rule
VASALL I Left My love (US cavalry song from Ford's "Horse Soldiers"
JOPACITA do they still teach kids that stuff?
JOPACITA slide rules?
Linusespause and like how the pollsters all screwed up.. relied on data analysts to tell them "hey you're winning" then find out the data analysts were asking the wrong questions
JOPACITA in case we lose power?
VASALL lol temp
Linusespause no jopa
jonnyd7606 <<had a slide rule
sharwarspitz not even multiplication tables
Linusespause I found the slide rule I had in high school (went to Brooklyn Tech)

rndthworldnadaze still have my K&E slide rule. they now sell for $300 and up
sharwarspitz totally to the max
Linusespause I paid serious money for it... like ten bucks
jonnyd7606 minus times minus equals plus. the reason for this we need not discuss.
Linusespause right temp.. it teaches logs just by looking at it
MobiusTruth it is nearly always a self-imposed myth that we "can't" learn this or that. it's just nonsense.

rndthworldnadaze much the same, linus
sharwarspitz minus times minus jonny
