Nope, you will not last that long.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

That is a dreary thought and remember I believe in reincarnation so you will many lifetimes to try.

You do remember what we talked about how to increase your chances?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

There are a couple of ideas.

But most of them I wasn't able to do, anyway. The easiest one on the list, seemingly being a good talker, I cannot do either.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Eventually you will fall into one of those groups. Then you will have your fill of them. I can only say that at times I wished I had not and so will you.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

In that case I think it will be at least a 3/4-year wait, possibly a 7/8-year wait (depending on PhD policies) before there is a small possibility that will happen.

I also asked Adriana around New Years if she'd like to come around to my place sometime, but she couldn't do it until Easter. Easter has gone but she didn't say anything. I guess she really wanted to see me.

I was not talking about 7 / 8 of a year.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I meant 7 or 8 years, not 7 eighths of a year... I feel that when I am finally allowed to be a lecturer I will be used to interacting with people on a more regular basis, which would help me fall into one of those categories.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You are correct but for the wrong reasons. Presumably you will be successful, that is one of the types they can not and will not resist.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

But then again, being a lecturer would expose me to mostly my own students, and I wouldn't be prepared to pursue someone in that sense. I guess I might be viewed as successful by some women in my department, but they'd probably see me as the same as them (or worse than them) since they are likely to occupy similar/same positions.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I like to think that I would make a good lecturer because I can be a good speaker, but a bunch of high school students is a different kettle of fish to undergraduates. Other than that, not really -- unless you count being able to tell someone the day they were born given their birthday in a few seconds, but that is only really impressive for a few seconds before people stop caring.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

So, that is your only gift? You will put that on your resume?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I would probably put my grades/qualifications/work experience on it, coupled with some generic 'skills' -- none of which I would consider special. I cannot really think of any gifts that I have.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Okay, let me see. You have no gifts, absolutely nothing that anybody wants, you have no money, no physical attributes, you can not speak... I would have to say that such a person will never get a job or a date if he lives to be 1400.

If that is true then please send me a picture of you because I have never seen such a person. Such a person is rarer than a sharp image of Bigfoot.

I think it is just a lot of negativity talking.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think I possess some traits that are perhaps somewhat desirable to supporting a family. In particular, being able to cook cheaply and healthily, budgeting and maintaining a clean house. But I don't think these kinds of traits will help me fall into any of those categories you mentioned -- which is almost contradictory as starting a family would require finding a woman, who can only be attracted with a wider skill set which I do not yet possess.

At the very latest you will fall into the category of good provider.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That's probably not the kind of thing a woman in her early twenties wants though, seeing as most people don't want to settle down until after they reach 30 these days.

Never saw any woman pass up on a dude that had some bread.

Except my female neighbour I told you about, who doesn't like bread. Or salad, or anything that isn't a pizza or McDonald's. Surprised she is even still alive.
