Spring Quarter

Spring quarter began on Monday and I'm back into the fray already.

This quarter I'm taking three classes again. They are:

It's basically the same mix as last quarter.

The ECE class is basically going to be like my Linear Algebra class - reviewed at high-speed and the intensity cranked up a little. The prof says that it'll also include some 'applications' in the course and I'm hoping that he's going to do that. It would be nice to see what all high-level math I learned has some meaning...

The History course turns out to actually be a seminar course - about 18 students sitting around a conference table really getting into the subject matter. Although there's a butt load of reading involved, I'm looking forward to it.

And then there's the Cosmology course in Physics. This is the last class in a three-class sequence that (supposedly) will be the bulk of a minor in 'Space Sciences' offered by the Physics department here at UCSD. I'd get into the details.....if I only knew about them.

The added 'plus' is that while I'm slowly getting my engineering stuff done, I'm also completing classes in two minors - 'Space Sciences' and 'U.S. History'. It'll make a BSEE a bit more attractive.

Too Stupid to Live

Have you ever heard someone say something and found out that:

  1. It wasn't who you thought it was that was actually talking, and
  2. You'd never heard such an arrangement of words coming from that person?
Well, I had this happen to me last night.

Since we don't have cable anymore, we're pretty much compelled to watch one of two broadcast channels here in San Diego - Channel 8 which is the CBS station and Channel 10 which is the ABC affiliate; luckily, we don't get any Mexican/hispanic stations.

Anyway....I was in the kitchen doing something when I heard a female voice call out from the living room You SUCK lady!!; I naturally assumed that it was my wife horsing around with my daughter as they have taken to doing lately - tickle fights, general torture stuff.

I walked out to see what was happening and discovered that what I had heard and who said it were completely off - the statement You SUCK lady!! came from my 12-year old daughter while she was watching 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' (on one of the two channels we get). Apparently, there was some lady contestant that blew a simple question and my daughter reacted.....differently than I had ever seen before.

I asked my kid why she had said what she had said - her reply was Dad, she's too stupid to live on this planet!!

Leave it to a GATE student to verbally condemn/berate someone on a game show for being (in her opinion) a little too stupid for the good of the human race.....
