### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I've heard those are common traits among mathematicians...

She also admits to me she is very absent-minded. And whenever I send an e-mail asking, say, 3 questions, she almost always ends up answering two and missing out one of them. Do you find that this kind of thing is a commonality among female mathmos, or just women in general?

Hmmm, I have found them to be stupid, cruel, antagonistic, aggressive, uncaring and psychopathic and those are just the ones that I dated. I survived by sinking to even lower depths.

I pretty much dated the smart ones, perhaps that is questionable, I mean how smart were they if they were dating me?

Is that female mathmos specifically? (i.e. do they share more of those traits than the average woman?)

The smart ones, the life sciences rank as number 1 on the arrogant list, then come the math types, possess those traits in abundance. To a large degree I have found it true about people.

Hmm. I agree, it seems the ones in the sciences seem to be pretty arrogant and unpleasant. Maybe I am unfortunate to be in my field. (Or entering it I suppose.)

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Not only in Britain, people are generally grouchier than in the past. Take my former neighbor, he listens to 8 to 10 hours of bad music and then storms out of his apartment looking for someone to kill. That was not a happy boy.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I have had some crazy neighbours too. My last one vacuumed at 4 AM, randomly hammered nails into bits of wood at midnight (for no purpose, it was just a bit of wood) and would occasionally scream and throw laptops and condoms out the window.

I can top that! This guy after being unable to find someone on the street to kill would start to bang on my door day and night. Claimed he heard voices that were instructing him.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I'm excited, my first yes (potentially). I want to see how this unfolds.

I have had something very similar! I had a neighbour when I was about 5 or 6 who invited strippers over to his. He was a bit of a drug addict and was often found naked on our doorstep doing inappropriate things; when my parents were not around, he would often give me money and tell me to buy some sweets with it. One night, one of the strippers stabbed him, and he kicked and clawed at our door screaming "she cut me, she cut me!". It scared me at that age, and I think is the reason why I had nightmares so often as a child. A lot of other stuff contributed to that too, not just him. A few weeks later I saw him again -- in a body bag. I can remember not being sad, just feeling really sick and wanting to puke.

Well, I guess it's not really similar, as your neighbour sounds a bit crazier than this one... you said he is a former neighbour, he is in prison now?

No, that sounds pretty bad too, it seems to be pandemic. Nobody knows what happened to him, he just disappeared leaving his apartment full of stuff.

I wish you good luck with her.

Nobody is looking for him aside from debt collectors?

Thank you. I talked to another girl from her school (adriana and Hannah go to an all-girls school), who said the girls are pretty inexperienced and haven't had boyfriends. Maybe I have a higher probability of success with these two because of that.

Then again, F went to an all-girls school too.

I hope so. The girl from the UCL open day apparently told my friend that she thought I was hot, and wished she had asked me out but was too shy. That raised my confidence quite a bit.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

My friend said she thinks I'm a pervert and has completely changed her opinion about me because I don't have the same attitude to intimacy that she does. I don't really mind, no loss for me, plenty more women out there and like I said I'm not committing to anything as absurd as her demands.

It took a few weeks... but she took my question about hugs as perverted. She is the weird one.

Compare that to Hannah who liked my compliment of her figure.
