Awesome

I know it’s not just me that loves all the music in the Rocky movies, right? All of it. 

The “almost lost” to “winning” games in chess.

The opponent said “get aids and die” before he lost, and I took much satisfaction from it. 

Knowing that this would happen, but looking it up to confirm. This is the data showing how many times the page “derivative” is viewed on Wikipedia. The troughs are the weekends.

My professor wasn’t kidding when he said half the class usually fails

Foundations of Higher Mathematics aka intro to proofs class

He told us in the beginning that it’s typical to see half the class fail. 

I normally rank top 5 (out of 18) in the class, and I ended the semester with a C+ grade. C is passing, C- and below is failing. 

I feel tingly inside knowing others failed and I did not.

Chess 960 or Fischer Random

No matter what variation of chess I want to play, there still remains a fundamental truth that I will always run out of time with 5 minute games if they don’t involve 2 second increments. 

I have discovered the secret to unlocking the joy in mathematics

Skipping all exercises. Everything is a lot more interesting when you don’t do grunt work for the information. Proofs are displayed, information is given, all is well and there is little frustration in the air. 

Probability

The ugliest math ever. 

So about how many books does Zizek get published?

I checked Amazon last week and I found out he plans to author or co-author 14 different books that are coming out this year. He also writes some columns, released that new movie “Pervert’s Guide to Ideology” or something like that, and has time to grow a beard. I want the drugs he’s obviously taking.

Anyone else love the occasional comic book about logicians?

Yeah well here’s a good one.
