Why does noone here like math as much as I do?

I like math!

Because I prefer my maths to be applied.

I'm spending my whole day on math

I'm suppressing the itch to convert all of that to radians. Working in degrees just feels wrong.

Yeah using degrees feels weird to me too.

I'm at a restaurant getting lunch right now and one of my friends is working. She mistook my brother for me one time. I still don't see the resemblance between me and my brother. XD

I don't really mind degrees that much. Now, US measurement units...

I spend more than half of all of my days for the whole on math, so that's not impressive. wink.gif

I still don't know what an ounce is...

Agree. What the hell are they thinking? It's enough that I won't even bother opening an engineering textbook if it's printed in the US.

The prowess and awesomeness of Marina Inoue's voice is astoundingly mind-blowingly amazeballs. Can voice a ditzy, idiot, always-plotting middle sister, murderous, hyper-OCD female teenager, a wimpy brave male brainiac in a world of cannibalistic giants, busty sniper always with unrequited love, sing melancholic sons and a different, laid back cheery songs. God bless you voice of Yoko, Kitsu Chiri, Minami Kana, Armin Arlert.

Other roles in anime also includes Rei from oppai-infested zombie high school, Yozora from I'm-a-lonely-friendless-loser-yet-still-have-a-harem-in-a-dumb-school-club, and blond female anime stereotype from Sekirei.

I wish this thread would always be talking about interesting topics (like mathematics or other academics) instead of conversing about anime, headphones or music. The topics bore me quite a bit.

Reminds me, this is worth a read.

 

Constructor Theory - David Deutsch

 

Abstract:

Constructor theory seeks to express all fundamental scientific theories in terms of a dichotomy between possible and impossible physical transformations - those that can be caused to happen and those that cannot. This is a departure from the prevailing conception of fundamental physics which is to predict what will happen from initial conditions and laws of motion. Several converging motivations for expecting constructor theory to be a fundamental branch of physics are discussed. Some principles of the theory are suggested and its potential for solving various problems and achieving various unifications is explored. These include providing a theory of information underlying classical and quantum information; generalising the theory of computation to include all physical transformations; unifying formal statements of conservation laws with the stronger operational ones (such as the ruling-out of perpetual motion machines); expressing the principles of testability and of the computability of nature (currently deemed methodological and metaphysical respectively) as laws of physics; allowing exact statements of emergent laws (such as the second law of thermodynamics); and expressing certain apparently anthropocentric attributes such as knowledge in physical terms.

I should re-learn Fourier series. The teacher who taught it to us didn't do a very good job I thought. Do you self-teach yourself a lot of things? My friend who is a math wizard (he's planning to get a bioengineering and electrical engineering degree with a math minor) makes proofs for fun and he showed me how to calculate the sine/cosine of any angle using some clever angles in a circle.

 

 

Shingeki no Kyojin Episode 3 Question (Click to show)

In ep. 3, Eren masters the 3D Maneuver Gear at the end of the episode. They made it seem that balancing on a faulty strap was a big deal. I wonder if other people can still balance on a broken strap as well.

Speaking of the strap, what exactly does it do? Is there some sort of counterweight in it or something? I don't see how a broken strap can significantly alter the balance of someone unless the strap was at a weird angle or something.

Meh, doesn't look that interesting to be honest. A lot of fancy terms are being thrown around, but it doesn't actually seem of any use. Plus, I disliked the use of language used throughout the paper when I skimmed it just now.

It's like 30 grams depending on what type of ounce you are talking about, but objectively worse. A fluid once however, is about 30ml, plus or minus a few depending on what type you want.

I know, there is so much talk about this animu stuff here that it might as well be called the 「Official」Asian Anime, Manga, and Music Lounge. 

 

Anyone here using Republic Wireless? It's so cheap, but the phone they give you has such horrible audio quality (and is pretty horrible in other ways, but hey, it's waterproof, which is a god tier feature).
