  • What do you think of these math lines that I made up?

    1.) You are the area beneath my curve, the integral to my derivative, so let's integrate by our parts. 2.) Like partial fractions, we will never truly be apart. 3.) I can Newton-Raphson all night long, but still can't get a close approximation to why she's angry. 4.) Suck my integrating factor, you first-order bastard. 5.)... show more

MacLaurin series is Taylor series without attitude. 6.) The tanning bed is ready, but to get a tan free of cos, you must sine. 7.) If you hold the shouting constant, you can find the partial derivative of his rage with respect to the credit card bills. 8.) Laplace whatnow? 9.) e and pi are real numbers, but i isn't? 10.) Expand now, or forever hold your function.

  • Religious people confuse me sometimes....?

    I know this guy who keeps trying to get me to accept Christianity (I used to believe in it, so this was a difficult situation). This same guy tells me that I'm narrow-minded because I refuse to believe in the things he's telling me without proof, but on the same note, he hates Charles Darwin for his theory, he thinks the idea that comets... show more
    I know this guy who keeps trying to get me to accept Christianity (I used to believe in it, so this was a difficult situation). This same guy tells me that I'm narrow-minded because I refuse to believe in the things he's telling me without proof, but on the same note, he hates Charles Darwin for his theory, he thinks the idea that comets may have helped in the formation of life on Earth is BS, he thinks Hindus are stupid for being polytheistic and he thinks that science has had a negative influence on me, even though this guy has no trouble using scientific inventions (like the computer), has fantasies about having premarital sex and does not back up anything he says with something other than the Bible and his own opinions. To make it more confusing, outside of religious talk, this guy is very quirky and intelligent. My question is how do I get this guy to see the effect religion is having on him, and how many religious people are like this?

  • This might be a stupid question, but why don't they teach certain things in GCSE/O level Physics?

    I noticed that unlike A level Physics, they don't have, in the O level/GCSE syllabi, quantitative concepts like universal gravitation, angular velocity/acceleration, first and second laws of thermodynamics, capacitance & inductance, magnetic flux & magnetic flux density and Planck's equation. Why is that? Are the principles in their... show more

Why is that? Are the principles in their mathematical form generally too difficult for students at that level or is it something else?

  • What is C used for nowadays?

    I'm doing Computer Science in high school (sixth form), and we're learning the C programming language. What exactly is C, given the existence of C++, used for today? I also would like some possible reasons why it was decided that we should learn C now, when a few years ago, it was OK to use an object-oriented language?

  • Can Microsoft Access be used for a software project in Computer Science?

    My software project is a simple database. I was wondering if Access could be used to create it or do I have to use a programming language to do it from scratch?

    If all goes well, I'm going to enroll in the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona Campus next year. To those who can help me, I'm doing CAPE (exam similar to GCE A Levels) Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Economics. I don't want to major in Economics, because I've been getting negative vibes about economists and the social sciences in general, and I want to do something useful to society. Is this irrational thinking? As for the other subjects, I hate Computer Science, I like Chemistry, and I'm fascinated somewhat with Math (though it is TOUGH). What major do you think I should choose, and why?

    He said he wanted grandchildren when I finish my college education and get a full-time job.

When I said it's not happening, he said that I was trying to avoid responsibility, and my mother said I was being selfish, because I was depriving my father of something that could make HIM happy. I'm writing in past tense, because they said nothing further, but I think they might spring it on me again when the time comes. If that becomes the case, some advice on how to handle the situation please !!!!

  • In France, should other languages such as Occitan, Alsatian, Breton, Corsican and Basque be made co-official?

    France has quite a large number of languages, most of which are Romance (descended from Latin), including French itself. Occitan and Catalan (two other Romance languages) are spoken in Southern France. Corsican (another Romance language) is spoken on the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean.

    France has quite a large number of languages, most of which are Romance (descended from Latin), including French itself. Occitan and Catalan (two other Romance languages) are spoken in Southern France. Corsican (another Romance language) is spoken on the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean. Basque (whose origins are mysterious) is spoken by some in the Pyrenees. Breton (a Celtic language) is spoken in Brittany, while Alsatian (a Germanic dialect) is spoken in the Alsace region. There are many others that I won't get into. The French government, until recently, has made numerous attempts to suppress these ex-French languages. Students were punished for uttering any of them at school, persons were forbidden for using them in the courts (and in many instances, the media), and although they weren't forbidden to speak it at home, adults encouraged their children to speak French as a first language. Today, all of these languages are on the decline.

  • If there is a second showdown between Naruto and Sasuke, what abilities would we see being used?

    Sasuke wants to destroy Konoha and Naruto, despite his own past with the village, would want to protect it. I think maybe Naruto's tailed transformations or Rasenshuriken, and Sasuke's mangekyou sharingan might be involved. Who knows?
