Re: Interesting Conversation

M? Because she does math the best and does exactly what I tell her to do.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Interesting Conversation

Why should it be a female?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Usually inanimate things are given a female gender. Sort of like a ship.

Re: Interesting Conversation

I do not find inanimate things are beautiful. I was not talking about this M either.

Re: Interesting Conversation

I was talking about M the package, you were talking about M the girl.

I do not find inanimate things are beautiful.

Seen any astronomical images? Seen mountains and the oceans? The blue sky? A sunrise? A sunset? Are they not beautiful?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Yes, maybe. But animate objects can be more beautiful

and M is beautiful but I do not find it comfortable to think of him as a female.

It is still my baby.

Beauty means a lot of things. I would say that it is something that touches your insides.

Re: Interesting Conversation

I'm sure M should have cut it in the ratio which is as close as possible to

What do you think?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Too show why I believe in many things you do not is because when you have lived as long as I you will experience them. For some reason, I just began to draw. It was pretty good too. I had no training or aptitude for it but it just happened. I filled up books with sketches and then it stopped as suddenly as it started.

When do these start? At 90? Do I have to live that long?

Re: Interesting Conversation

Nothing happens to you until you at least get into your mid twenties. Before that time a person is like in a cocoon.

For most people they never get out. Stuck in that box they are.

And yet, you wonder why no school has hired you?

I guess that it would be impolite to ask how many people you know then?
