Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIn the back of my mind I want some kind of change and little things happen occasionally that make me not want to move on from rejection yet. F has a twin sister (nonidentical) who came up to me today and asked me if my name was ____ (it was). She asked me if I knew F  I said that I did, and she said that she was her sister. Then she just walked away, strangely. No clue what that was about, seemed a bit random. She looks nothing like F either. #177 20120323 02:58:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo F has a sister? That introduction sure was weird. Maybe she wanted to get a look at you, obviously the sister is talking about you to her. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #178 20120323 03:03:33
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut she is so shy, I don't think there will be a first move. Not long to go before she's gone (forever, most likely). #179 20120323 05:34:55
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOkay, then ask her again. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #180 20120323 06:12:33#181 20120323 06:23:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf she wants to go out. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #182 20120323 06:32:16
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut I asked her out already and I was rejected (in an implied way)... won't the same thing happen again, just more awkward? #183 20120323 06:37:47
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell that is the point. You already got rejected so what can happen now. I think the general rule is 3 times and your out. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #184 20120323 06:49:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI just don't know how to go about doing it this time, last time it was easy, now it is not so easy... here's what happened last time: #185 20120323 07:00:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSounds pretty messy. In for a penny sort of thing. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #186 20120323 07:01:49#187 20120323 07:03:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell, I think she is torturing you but that never stopped me. Persistence pays off sometimes. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #188 20120323 07:06:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo what do you think should be my next move? I have no idea what to do now... #189 20120323 07:11:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have no idea, I know what I would do, combinatorics! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #190 20120323 07:27:05
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHow do I ask her again, though? Not sure what to do seeing as my first try failed... how should the approach work? Ask to speak in private again? #191 20120323 07:28:55
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTry what you did before. As long as you are talking you are doing well. As I said 3 rejections is the usual limit. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #192 20120323 07:39:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShould I ask her for a coffee again? I'd really prefer for her to be alone when I ask her this time because she's always hanging around her friend and I doubt her friend would let me ask F out again. Problem is that she is never alone... #193 20120323 07:41:01
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou could try barging right in there between them. Why will the friend interfere with you asking? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #194 20120323 07:44:10
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBarging right between them? They almost literally walk shoulder to shoulder... the reason I don't want to speak to F with her friend around is because F sticks to her friend a lot. Too many times has she just decided to give me a quick response and then go back to her friend again. Without the friend, I can speak to her in a conversation that lasts longer than 10 seconds. I would like at least 1 minute with her... #195 20120323 07:49:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe sounds busy. Usually though the friend will keep his/her mouth shut during important things like this. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #196 20120323 07:51:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut then F keeps talking to her friend and the friend responds. I have thought about telling F's friend about this if I saw her in private (she's easier to get to on her own, still difficult but happens more often) and maybe asking her if she could let us be alone together a bit more so I could talk to her. But I wonder if she would actually let me do that... #197 20120323 07:56:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMaybe but it is not necessary. Do not complicate this. You have a right to ask. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #198 20120323 07:59:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI won't get the chance tomorrow because it's Friday and F isn't in on Friday mornings (usually). I may get the chance to see F's friend on her own though. Do you think me being 17 and her being 18 plays quite a big role? I heard somewhere that psychologically there is a big difference because she's legally an adult and I'm not. #199 20120323 08:01:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaCould be that you are too young for her. But it is only coffee so... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #200 20120323 08:17:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI could be. I'm taller than her though. Actually, she isn't 18; I remember her birthday being displayed on the board once. It was June or July '94, so she's only older than me by about 7 months or so I think. Still, we are in different years (I'm Year 12, she's Year 13). She's applied to uni and got all her offers, I haven't applied to any unis because I do that next year. When she is in her first year at uni, I'll still be at school in Year 13.
