Eh, English is still pretty good in 'mericuh, it's science and technology where we're slightly starting to lag behind in.

My mom doesn't know squat about computers, she just throws money at me and tells me to do computer stuff

Ohm nom IEMs nom.

Okaeri!

Sounds cool. I was worried that you were dead or something since you haven't been on lately, then I wouldn't get to demo the LCD-2s and that would be sad very_evil_smiley.gif

Nop it isn't. If you read papers, you'd be surprised at how many mistakes there are. Tech and science everyone knows. Computer isn't much, you just play with it. Parents are that way b/c of the way they grew up. We grow up in an age of tech that evolves much faster than theirs. Science not really either. But it's the practical use. How many people will actually use calc, phys, etc once they're done? Not many. Only those that specialize and go to specialized occupations will. Even then, some don't use calc and phys in their daily job. An engineer might, a doctor won't.

Yep. Not as mid-centric anymore.

 

Didn't know as well until I read ljokerl's revised write-up. Then I bought myself an used pair just to make sure.

I might as well be dead. Dead in bed. I'm still a bit fever-ish.

Learning for the sake of learning? Gasp.

 

Again first world problems.

Academia. Pushing the boundaries of human knowledge.

 

Calc became pretty amazing when I took it in first year of uni. You've really got to hand it to these people who figured it out several hundred years ago. It's just freaking brilliant.

Boom. That's what I'm talking about.beerchug.gif

 

Hate when people talk about education without actually talking about EDUCATION.

no really, not many will actually use them once they're out. Instead, they can restructure the schooling system into specialization earlier. Much of the things like calc and phys boost are b/c of the Cold War. 

 

Yup. First world problems.

Hehe actually physics and trigonometry come into play when you're operating artillery pieces/MLRS with a calculator in ArmA. Freakin' awesome.

 

BTW I've read somewhere that kids these days are unprepared for survival after high school exactly because of specialization. It sort of makes sense. We're taught a lot of different things up until high school, but you don't really start making connections between what you've learned (if you've actually cared to remember it) and the real world until long after. For me it was in university that I finally grasped the importance of the stuff that they taught us in elementary school.
