Not the teachers, marauding gangs of thugs pounce on nerds. The teachers over here have no time to teach, they are too busy defending themselves.

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.

You always see it happening in movies but it seems rarer over here. Or maybe I am just lucky.

We have a lot violence in the schools. Police are brought in all the time to deal with students. The newspapers do not report it and it generally is swept under the rug.

They do like to do a lot of sweeping under the rug. It's the easiest way to deal with the problem from their perspective.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Nope. I haven't heard from adriana since Thursday... then again I did send her two long e-mails about the gamma and beta functions because she asked me to explain them, maybe I shouldn't have. That could be putting her off.

She did say she was really busy this weekend though -- she got a volunteering job at a homeless shelter doing weekend shifts, she is tutoring, and she (of course) is going to another birthday party. That could be the reason.

But the old adriana would e-mail me every day, no matter what. She would find a way.

Now remember Cyprus guy was there first. He was her bf. Of course no sane person would agree but that is the way she looks at it.

Of course, there will always be a party for her.

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

It is amazing that any westerner could be so eastern, wunderbar!

I like that poem -- I first heard about it when I saw the plaque displayed at Wimbledon.

My youth is running out though and I don't want to get old and still be clueless when it comes to women...

You will always be clueless about women. They are clueless about men but are not man enough to admit it.

If I spend my life worrying about every little thing I won't get anywhere, I have to take some risk, expose myself to some uncertainty to reap a reward of sorts...
