    man fuck my calculus curriculum so hard. this is fucking bullshit. there is an edition of this book- not international, not quirky, not discontinued, nothing weird just, a straight up edition of this textbook available widely in america- that costs ~$150 and covers all calc 1-3. there is also an abbreviated version that covers only single variable calculus- but of course covers integration.

    i bought the textbook my school offered last semester for calc 1 only to find out that it literally doesn't have integral calculus in it. none. it has like, a subchapter on the fundamental theorem of calculus and how it conceptually relates to integration. but otherwise, nothing. no antiderivatives, no definite or indefinite integrals, nothing about forms of substitution, fucking forget any of the other countless advanced topics we'll cover later in the semester.

    now they want me to buy the generalized single variable version- for another $100+! are you fucking kidding me! and this again lacks vector calc, should i choose to pursue that at some point... like, WHILE AT THIS SCHOOL.

    i know it's against the rules but whatever, i pirated a copy of the broader version. ain't give a fuck. i already paid the suggested msrp of this edition for a book that has literally 1/3rd the content.

    seriously fucking criminal robbery. they want you to buy the book that just has section 1, then buy the book that just has sections 1 and 2, then buy the book that has sections 1, 2, and 3 once you're in vector calc. when you could have just bought the third one in the beginning for basically the same price.

    goddamned thieves.

    When I took pre-calc the online homework had tutorials and detailed explanations and videos and all sorts of learning tools so you could get to the point where you could do the problem. This chemistry homework is the opposite. You have to do the problem and then it will show you how to do it (how handy!) If you don't already know how to do it, fuck you. Zero points, son.

    That's pretty much how I feel except minus the lab coat because I will clearly never be a scientist.

    Cupid demands a certain amount of sex to occur or else he'll rain love arrows on us without mercy. If none of us are meeting our quota then there's going to be an orgy full of people who should not be attending orgies.

    Yes, but then you'd have the wrong edition for your later classes, and all the page and problem numbering would be wrong.

    I had another date with Boy last night.
    I slept over. :l

    Why the pipe face? Does he have a collection of severed hands?

    Nope! His place is actually awesome and his bed is the best bed. I guess my emoticon should be :) because overall I'm pretty ecstatic about it. We watched three of the best episodes of Doctor Who and talked for like five hours. These are things that girls like.

    Boo! Boys only like it when girls put out!*


    *boys like to talk to a girl for like five hours, too. That and sleeping in the same bed afterwards makes our tummies feel funny which is not a feeling to be underestimated.

    I've never done anything drunk that hurt people other than myself.

    Or, well, I guess almost killing myself by falling out of a window and breaking the fall with my face worried a lot of people more than I normally realize

    I think I found the shoebox in the sky that I'll want to move into when things thaw. Need to actually take a look at it first, but it's really close to downtown, is in my price range, and doesn't seem freakishly small for a studio and I don't really care about that so long as there's room for a bed, desk, and chair.

    instead of sending me my $1,000 deposit in the mail my former apartment complex sent me a letter saying that they were going to have to replace the carpet for $1,634 and also that I owed them a $200 pet deposit that I'm pretty sure I already paid so and also also that they totally had to clean the kitchen (that I had professionally cleaned) so could I be so kind as to pay them $820 dollars or else I'll get turned over to collections.

    It's cheaper to borrow someone's book and spend an afternoon at Kinko's. I saved $100 doing that with an anatomy workbook in college.

    I'm fairly certain replacing carpet is something they have to do on their own.

    At least, that's the case in Virginia, I know these things vary.

    But sounds like it's time to lawyer up.

    Nah this attitude is fine until you're like 40.

    And then you'll pay for it when standing up hurts.

    if people do barely-annoying shit while drunk then i don't care.

    but if it's really lame shit, i am forgiving the first few times until it reaches the point where it's like- well, you know you get like this. control your drinking or else it doesn't seem convincing that you're all that interested in stopping that behavior.
