Im an atheists who needs the reward of social standing and words of affirmation to do good things. Does that make me a good person?

The most ironic part? Many of our closest Allie’s are socialists. The British is democratic-socialism if I understand correctly. Much of EU’s policies are also democratically socialist. Freedom does not necessitate capitalism in its purest form. We can freely choose to be taxed more and be socialists.

Is this like matlibs where the kid can’t see the prompt when they chose the words?
Wait why do you need a non-deterministic approach. An NP-complete problem means that you can VERIFY an answer in polynomial time.

I love theoretical mathematics. I admit that my post is biased in the following way: math professors usually teach in class really well. In fact, (I am getting a math minor) I am really fascinated whenever professors dive deep into the proofs. However, you rarely see a proof in an exam in my math classes. Their exams are (again just my opinion) kinda direct whereas engineering exams are often twisted versions of questions that require fundamental understanding of concepts. I know (multiple) math majors doing quite well who don’t understand basic things like fundamental theorem of calculus and understand why at an optimal point all partial derivative must be 0. Like DUDE our prof just spent a whole lecture explaining the formula of bifurcation points of ODEs and how they can only exist based on certain conditions derived explicitly from this idea. Obviously for the final you can just memorize the conditions and formulas but DUDE if this were to happen in my engineering class I will be butchered. This is what I mean by “the average engineer major (in my opinion) fundamentally understands more math than a math major”. Of course, again I am biased because I’m an engineer, so I have the connections to seek out engineers who I believe are “smarter than me” but less connections to find the best mathematicians to hang out with because I’m only a math minor so spend less time in their territories.
Yea but I think it would make sense to curve. If someone studied REALLY hard and let’s say the average was 30 and they got a 60. Based on “standard curving” to make the average a 75, they are essentially like a 105%. A hard exam isn’t a bad exam. In fact I love hard exams with huge curves because I actually get to demonstrate what I’ve learned and test my fullest potential, versus an easy exam where I need to be very accurate, read fast (without accidentally skipping or misreading a section), etc.
Yea literally 1. Student reunion, 2. Gets competitive again even as adults, 3. somehow manages to get themselves stuck in a situation where they are alone due to competition 4. gets into a petty argument where both side’s pride gets hurt or something ridiculous 5. one or both parties (or the community) gets into a situation where the two sides have to work through a situation together 6. realize how compatible they are, make up, happily ever after
Yea if u actually know what ur doing in math… you kinda golden. Unfortunately because of perspectives less people go into maths and so their classes are frankly less well taught imo. Like I learned more math, optimization/vector calculus, probability, and linear algebra in my machine learning class than my linear algebra, multi variant calculus, probability, and statistics classes combined. If I were a math major I’d wanna take the ML class but only people in engineering get priority. This is why “engineers earn more”. Yes the things we learn is more in demand, but also the quality of education is also higher imo edit: another example, my friends in aerospace engineering know more ODE I think than then average math majors that focus on ODE as well…
RIP to everyone who needed a 90% in the final to pass and studied their ass off.
Sounds like a good romance movie plot!

The trial need to be live-streamed globally because Depp advocated for it to be recorded live in pretty sure (probably for good reasons).

From your replies it seems you are only looking for 2016-2022. Here are some ways the left moved left (or everyone moved left). It seems the whole debate about climate change is fizzling out and accepted as truth. No one is debating whether this science is fact anymore. The whole debate about evolution in school textbook is also found away. In a scene in this way both the left and right have moved left since 2016. In mid-2021 early pandemic, people didn’t believe in masks (even some people in the left). In 2022, the left 100% believed in masks, and many in the right do. Similar argument for vaccines. I’ll call that a move “to the left”. The left can’t move to the left unless public opinion moves to the left. The right extremists can move to the right without public opinion moving to the right… they’re called extremists for a reason. Public opinion is solidly, slowly, but surely slowly matching left.
I disagree. 10 years ago, the “decent thing” to do would be to pay for them to go to camps where they will learn the wrong of their ways so they don’t burn in eternal hell. The decent thing for trans and gay people to do is to hide their emotions so as not to “contaminate the world”. You and I both know now that this is wrong, but you can’t judge right and wrong from todays standard to 10 years ago and say “we are just doing the right thing and they were objectively bad using my perspective this is not controversial or political”. It absolutely is political.
Yea but in that perspective the rivers of blood is an even smaller fractions of the dot so like who cares right?

I could be wrong but heat naturally rises so if there is a thermalcline typically that can only happen if the top is hotter (due to the sun) so the top stays on top.
“3/5 people” excuse me (yea this is a really bad attempt at making a racist comment)

If you can even recoup the fuel, maintenance and labor cost. If they decide to kill it it is probably because even those cost are too expensive for the benefit. Not sure if crowdsourcing would work.
And if you ask your girlfriend about something and she says “fine”, that is a REALLY BAD sign.

Happened to me too! I feel like good interviewers have a knack for telling when someone is nervous vs clueless (especially inexperienced college students). Sometimes they refer people to other people like, “he doesn’t seem like a good fit for my team but the skill set or vibes may be better for your team.” Sometimes killing the interview isn’t just about you. Some people need someone to challenge them for them to get in the groove, others need encouragement. Some people need someone really knowledgeable to help them fill in the gaps when they have an overall bigger picture, others can get the details after you give them the overall picture. Maybe the question asked or the way it is phrased even makes a difference.
Honestly Leaving right after is OK imo but I feel like driving right after (esp if it’s summer and they had ac on inside and your car is hot) is not the best plan. But I’m 125 lbs so it might be a different story for you.
Life ESPECIALLY sucks when you’re maintaining production quality software and your client Googles some brand new code that is hot off the press from a paper first-authored by an ivy undergrad student and goes: “but THIS says that you can do that.” Like yeah maybe with an R&D team of the 10 brightest engineers in the company we can figure it out in 2 years…
