Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is a lot drier without the human element. Also, people need heroes, even in math.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, some can be very inspiring, although most people still don't care about the mathematicians. It would be nice if 'Euler' had the same effect as the name 'Mozart'.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Most people today do not know who Mozart or Euler are.

Mozart? I think most people have heard of him...

Not over here. They do not go to school.

That is pretty bad. Over here you get a letter demanding a fine if you miss too much school though.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

We have tons of laws here but none of them can be enforced. I am looking at a bunch of them outside my window right now. All of them with baggy pants that are around their knees. They have to wear black underwear other wise the sun would shine right through.

It is considered cool to be a moron.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

We have many people who dress like that too - 20% of my school maybe - I don't have a problem with it though, they call it "bustin' low batty" I believe. Girls seem to like it. I would never dress like that though.

Why do the girls like it? Because it is cool to be a dummy. What did you think of that idiot that inhales computer keyboard cleaner because it gets him high?

I have not. I will bet it has nothing to do with ice cream though.

What is it? Wait, they all packed into a car and they are playing their hideous music so loud the entire building in shaking.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The objective of the cinnamon challenge is to swallow 1 spoon of cinnamon without drinking anything, in under 60 seconds. Many people who attempted it have ended up in hospital or almost choked to death. Many from my school like to attempt it, especially at parties.

You cannot call the police if things get out of hand?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Out of hand? Very likely one or more of them has a gun and they are just waiting for members of a rival gang to shoot. Then they will speed away in the car. By the time the police get here they will be long gone.

We have a challenge like that over here. Idiots try to inhale cayenne pepper.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That's terrifying... my area is comparatively much safer, there has never been a shootout near me I don't think. Riots, many, but never shootouts.

That must be painful...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Depending on the Cayenne, a small amount can put you on the ground. These guys are swallowing a big ladle full. That much can easily kill.

We never have riots, the local leaders pay the gangs not to riot. Mostly they traffic their drugs on kids and  then go and use the rest until they pass out.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't think I've heard of people over here doing that... surprised it has not spread.

You do have a lot of druggies in my area but I don't know about any trafficking involving children.
