    Yes, true. The thing about online though, is I'll have to keep reminding myself to stay on it. I always have class to remind me of that, but online, it's basically your schedule.

    Oh dear...that's not good. I may end up having to take that class online....what fun that will be!

    Those dratted online classes! Although I admit that since this semester started, I'm getting a little better with online things.

    Doesn't sound I hope it's something new...

    Yes, very much.

    Pre-Calc had a lot to do with geometry. Sines, cosines, tangents, etc. But I do hope it is different. I'm tired of feeling like I'm repeating classes over and over.

    That;s why I have my laptop with me. I usually do my homework then and there(since it's online) and then fool around on the computer. I know exactly how to do the things the teacher's talking about, so I don't really pay attention. I have to say I feel lazy about it...

    Well, It's required. I took geometry in high school and passed with a decent grade, but they require me to take Plane Trig. My last required math class is Calculus, which I'm hoping it's about the same as Pre-Calc, since I have a lot of experience in that field.

    Actually, I'm taking four classes this semester also. I would love to take it, but maybe later.

    I'm taking the last Biology class that's required, my last English class required, Plane Trigonometry, and Psychology, which is surprisingly interesting.

    Now that is something I can agree with.

    Ehh. Laziness can also be the death of you. It's how far you end up taking it.

Word Abuse

by PeterL on 03-05-2023 at 06:05 PM
'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.'. From Alice in Wonderland by Charles Dodson, AKA Lewis Carroll

One fundamental element of language is that the words have the same meanings for everyone using that language. On the other hand, metaphorical and ironic uses of words are common and are meaningful, and languages evolve, in part, by people using words in different ways. Some people use words

Growth of Stupidity

by PeterL on 02-08-2023 at 02:19 PM
I don't meet everyone, but the people that I do run into seem to be less intelligent than people used to be, and they seem to be less willing to accept correction. I fear that Donald Trump is responsible for part of that. When people who have IQ's in the 80's and low 90's saw one of their own as president of the U.S.A., they seem to have gotten the idea that if he can do that, then I should do whatever I want to do, and no one can condemn me. Part of this thinking is that I have been among the lowest

Replacing Drugs with Sex

by PeterL on 01-25-2023 at 03:55 PM
Humans often ask the wrong questions, then are disappointed when the answers do not work, or work as they would have liked. A realm where that is blinding clear is in regard to the drugs that people use for amusement. Many people ask or wonder about the reasons for drug use, but the answers that they see often related to family, upbringing, environment, socialization, etc., but there is little said about neurotransmitters and hormones. Much drug use is an attempt to get the level of something back

Eliminating Trash

by PeterL on 12-28-2022 at 05:02 PM
A few days ago, I wrote a post extolling the virtues of thermal depolymerization for the disposal of the bodies of the dead, and that is a good idea, but since then I noticed many places that had multiple bins for the disposal of trash. It bothered me that there were so many bins, and that people were expected to sort their trash, because it could all go into a thermal depolymerization unit and the organic matter can be reduced to short chain hydrocarbon oil.
The process converts long hydrocarbon

Democracy and weapons

by PeterL on 12-10-2022 at 05:14 PM
Apparently, many people do not understand what democracy is, and many of them mistakenly think that the U.S.A. is a democracy. Democracy means that the people rule, from the Greek demos kratos. In a democracy, the people in assembly vote on the laws and how the state will be governed; how much will be paid to whom for doing whatever. That erroneous thinking results in republic and democracy being conflated. A republic is a form of government in which the people choose representatives who determine
