Things you ought to never do…

Alright, day two – year three. Some advice: it is not advisable to take discrete mathematics without a proper understanding of set theory and moderate experience with formal proofs. Do not mishear your professor and try to make the power set of S a subset of S. It will keep you confused long into the night.

I’d also recommend doing some in depth research when registering for a computer science class, because you have about a 50:50 shot of inadvertently being in ANOTHER barely comprehensible MATH class. You probably ought not to take an onslaught of economics classes when you do not really care for the subject (hoping it will get better).

Finally, do not post your terrible artwork on the internet for others to see. Leave that to me… More on the way, since I am subject to a mandatory art class.

Something nonacademic, that will potentially save you thousands of $$$: do not play online poker without having access to hundreds of thousands of past hands. It makes those with just such an edge feel guilty – and you will lose… terribly.

  1. Which manditory art class are you going to take?

    The following is from the movie/play. Proof

    “Let X equal the quantity of all quantities of X. Let X equal the cold. It is cold in December. The months of cold equal November through February. There are four months of cold & four months of heat, leaving four months of indeterminate temperature. In February it snows. In March the lake is a lake of ice. In September the students come back & the bookstores are full. Let X equal the months of full bookstores. The number of books approaches infinity as the number of months of cold approaches four. I will never be as cold now as I will in the future. The future of cold is infinite. The future of heat is the future of cold. The bookstores are infinite & so are never full except in September.”

    I’m taking “Introduction to Visual Language”. It’s primarily about 2D art.

    I think I’ve seen that excerpt somewhere before. It was a nice reminder that the cold is coming.

    Do you mind me asking, have we met? You’re IP address claims you are from Louisiana, so I had to ask.

    Regardless, thanks for the comments.

  3. We’ve met. I know folks who live in the Chicago area and they tell me it does get cold. I’ve made several visits to Columbus, Ohio in the winter, pretty cold compared to Louisiana but not the lake effects snows of Chicago. From the air the snow in the wooded country side is quite beautiful but no fun to drive in.
