No, we aren't fortunate enough to have this incredible logic and see the result before we even start to calculate.. We are sorry, but we weren't born with this incredible fortunate brain-cell..


Thats why it's unfair to teach incredible difficult stuff to random people, who do not have the logic to deal with something like that.

Everything in this World is learnable and if you try hard enough you will learn it someday.

But Math is Logic! You either have it or you don't!!

Same thing with Informatics.. some people are fortunate enough to understand it easily because of their logic from birth, others are not gifted with it.


So people should stop demanding from us, that Math has to be major subject. It shouldn't be one cause not everybody is that gifted with mathematic logic!!

Same have it and some do not! Thats the real one multiply by one!

I've chosen to work with children so my math will always be somewhat up to par

Goodnight ladies and gentlemen, see you on the other side!

He does not look ratty at all. It's probably just the fact that that's an in motion shot. He's lean because he's a Lurcher, Whippet X Bedlington X Deerhound in his case. He's awesome so shh with your rudeness.

Okay, fair enough I guess. But it's not really the maths fault.

Beat L.A Noire 2-3 days ago, and still pissed about the ending.

For any who want to play it, it's a very fun game, but the ending makes you want to punch the people who made the game right in the nuts. Yeah, right in nuts.

Tempted to buy/play The Witcher 2 as the first game was great, but not sure if I want to get into a new beast atm.

Also, I'm hungry as fawk and going to get up and make me something, but whatever it is, I'm putting crème fraiche on top.

The thing is bobby... unless you intend to be a manual laborer of the lowest order or a forum moderator you do need it and you will use it.

Even a dumb ol' carpenter uses the pythagorean theorem everyday. That's after an engineer has calculated whether the soil can support what he's building and done static and moment calculations on every building component.

these two things are true my friend.

1. with the right formula you can figure out anything.

2. without mastering math to some degree, you will be a child in the world always in need of someones guidance.

My fishing buddy never finished high school. But you should see him work with charts, satellites, depthfinders and temp calculations. He catches more fish than anyone with the slowest boat in the area.

he's thinking about getting a computer.

I've just been told that I need to do a thorough playtest of our latest game. Sounds like fun, I know... but it fooking isnt.

10 hours of trying to break a videogame is right up there with root canals.

Testing might not be so fun, but it is important.

What kind of game are you developing? What do you do for a living? And so on..

Thats a lie, I use math and algebra every day. To calclate pipe volumes and the volumes of pipe with pipe inside them. Pipe displacement. How much of a certain concentration of acid and how much water do I need to make a certain amount and concentration of acid. The density of fluid needed to kill a gas well. I thought I would never use any of that stuff and it was all hypothetical BS and now I am out of school and use it almost every day.
