I'm pretty sure Trippy is one word, just like Legendary.

Thanks ganesh, how are you? Have you been keeping alright? I just remembered MathsIsFun.com a few days ago, and thought I would pop in and visit. I see there's lots of the old people still here :] Well, not old, but you know what I mean!

Hi Roraborealis,

I am doing well. How's everything in all these days?

Everything is so busy these days - and yet here I am procrastinating on here. Given up on the maths, I'm afraid! Yes, shame on me

I studied further Maths, Biology and Chemistry and now I'm doing my second year of Biomedical Sciences at University. There are so many assignments and reading to catch up on; at the moment I'm applying for an internship in a lab/hospital for a possible placement year; I'm taking my driving theory test soon; my part-time job may as well be full time because they keep scheduling me in lots D: Oh well, I'm sure I'll get through somehow

I was experimenting with mouldy food today, and last week I took a swab out my nose to see if I had Staphylococcus Aureus in it - about 40% of people do. It's a lot of fun and I'm really enjoying it!

Hi MIF;

That just reminded me that I was reading that 3.14..... was incorrect. It should be 3.13.... If that were true than we are late.
