Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

To do what? She has a bf and a gf. She parties hearty. The reason she gets all nice and goodly when you are doing math is because you are giving your knowledge to her for nothing. She probably already has had experience with someone exactly like homework guy. She probably paid the price too. You are cheaper.

Yes, I am cheaper. They will always see me as the cheapest option.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is the point. I think you are worth a raise. If she can have a gf and bf here, a bf in Barcelona and Cyprus all who are getting their moneys worth, how about you? Time for a general strike!

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think the logical thing is just to try to find other prospects who I am worth more too. They are difficult to find though.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hi;

Going out on strike means that. Unless at least some of your demands are met then you are not going to work anymore.

You are now a young man. There are going to be periods in your life when you will not be able to find any companionship. You are going to have to come up with solutions that ease the suffering.

If by companionship you mean no friends at all, then yes, I think that will be hard. At present, I just talk to a (male) friend if I am feeling lonely.

I meant no female companions. It causes a hardship on everybody but you will get used to it.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I can cope as long as I have (male) friends. Like for instance, my friend was the one who asked me if I wanted to go to that Weinberg lecture with him (he's applying for engineering). It was fun to go with someone without all those dating complications -- we've known each other for years and it was nice to do something fun instead of sitting at home on a school night.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You can also go out by yourself. If you use your head you can avoid trouble.

I am going to eat some soup, see you a little later.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sometimes when I feel a little cooped up I go for a little walk around the complex.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I used to do that too. Trouble is, even walking is painful for me now... remember when I walked 15 miles for a biscuit tin? No way could I do that now. A mere 2 miles is now a battle with pain. I don't know why, it is not just the knees anymore. The feet, the ankles, the anterior tibialis, the shins. It is incredibly frustrating...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sometimes decreased activity causes more pain. Heating pads, or hot showers can alleviate pain when you have it.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I haven't changed my level of activity though. This all started when I had to go to Cambridge for my interview, I had to wear those tight smart shoes for 2 days. It was painful but I thought it was worth it and it would just go away in a couple of weeks. 3 and a half months later I still have it and it is worse... I think I should go for an X-ray.

Doesn't really look swollen but I definitely see bruising there.

Around the ankles or the whole foot?

Around the ankles but mostly around the front of the foot (not near the toes, at the opposite end).

Did you roll your ankles while you were walking or running ever before?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't think so. The smart shoes I wore for a couple of days (I had to walk around a lot in them) were probably the cause, they were pushing into my foot in the same spot that hurts now...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Probably bruised it pretty bad. Doesn't sound broken. Next time carry a backpack and put the fancy shoes in it. Walk in your sneakers and when you get close to your destination switch shoes.

I wanted to, but there was no room in my bag, unless I carried an extra plastic one. Can bruises last that long?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

On the surface it only looks like a light bruise but it is painful. The bruise is most prominent on the left foot -- used to have it on the right foot as well but that healed quickly.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Bruised ankles like that can last indefinitely. I have had mine since I was around your age. I would twist them playing basketball and the tendons would stretch and puff up. There is like a tire around both my ankles now that has remained from those days.

Also, the damage caused to the muscles and tendons heals but forms scar tissue. This scar tissue is not as strong as the original injury site. Arthritis can very likely settle in their causing constant pain.

Going to get a little bit of sleep.
