Just a quick note to God, or the Fates, or Whatever Else might be Out There:

If ANYONE had EVER mentioned SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS to me, lo, these many years ago,


also, there is not enough Ativan on the freakin' planet.

That is all.

that's the thing; there is no purpose. just like the whole dividing-fractions thingy the sixth grade is doing now. when, in your entire adult life have you ever had to divide a fraction? never, you say?

yeah... that's what i thought.

no purpose. but it does help the parents to reach their secret goal of more gray hairs.

when, in your entire adult life have you ever had to divide a fraction? Never indeed! Besides, that's why they make pocket calculators, right?

Dividing and multiplying fractions is SO MUCH EASIER than adding and subtracting them. Who the hell thought the method for that up? I remember immense relief when we left adding and subtracting them and moved on to dividing and multiplying them. *nods*

Then again, the 'difficult' stuff has always been -- *snaps* like that -- to me and the 'easy' stuff has been the opposite. I need to find a copy of the Tratchenberg Method of Basic Mathematics so I can finally finish learning the rules. Conventional math makes little sense to me. It's not basic at all. It's stupid. Higher math is so much fun, but schools assume you have to master one to learn the other and wouldn't let me take those classes. Luckily, that's not necessarily the case in college. *reminisces*

yeah--koda's much better with the 'complicated' math, rather than the basic, as well. me, i hate it all.

But...but math is FUN! You know, when it's not forced on you...
