    I know where antiant's hair went! Abraxas just took it for his avatar. Thief!

    Mathematicians are driving me mad! They keep spouting out either pure logic or extremely synthetic generalizations. They don't describe the practical problem I need to solve, nor why should I care at all. For example, they can't say directy that the first central moment of a probability distribution function is EXACTLY its center of mass' x-coordinate (and, obviously, calculated primarily in relation to 0 of the system). The second moment is the moment of inertia around the axis through the first moment. Guess what, Steiner's theorem from mechanics also applies, so obviously you will primarily calculate this one around this axis, lest you get a degenerate result also containing a positive first-moment-dependent member. Hence also the the meaning of the first moment- the random variables have the lowest variance from this particular point. The third moment- skewness? Well, it has x-mu of third power in the integral, so, like the first, it is +- sensitive. So it determines in which direction the function has a more massive tail, duh! What they consider to be important (definitions/generalizations/...) I consider only a consequence, interpretation of some hard facts from practise, and saying it first an attempt to complicate and create a smoke screen. If I do not understand the problem, I can NOT understand the answer! It's like expecting a 2-year-old to make his wife pregnant and have a job that can provide for the family. Totally out of it's place (I need to be taught how to live first, before I can gladly transition into the dying phase.). And what they say as the least important in the end (if at all), is my key to understanding.

    Wikipedia botches its effort of being informative to people who need it for the sake of being 'correct' and succinct in the eyes of people who no longer really need it. An hero now, please. Betcha if I edited it, it would get reverted because their useless form rules wouldn't be met. What do they want? Are they short-sighted or just need to engorge their e-peen knowing that people are not able to understand what they already know?

    Oh no, God, please! Why can't I have physicists for math teachers?! Well, I actually had two, but they taught the least important (not even obligatory) subject. At least they made sense. But my suspected INTJ programming teacher was even better.

    EDIT: I did somewhat touch on philosophy and will share some more. One has to gain working knowledge of the problem (i.e. life). Learn the basics of living. Some will correctly find the answer to the inevitable personal death in superpersonal values. One has to perceive onself as a part of superpersonal identity, being. We could 'approximate it using a Taylor series' of identities, interpretations. You are made of matter, of organic substances. You're an animal, you're a human. I am but a today's center of a timeless family net. Then I have a nationality, bear a culture and I am white (still relatively immovable traits). This is my example of the series. What would you do with it? Devour those who differ, unless they agree on a symbiosis, in a, hopefully, eternal struggle for maximum extent of your existence (on multiple interpretational levels at once).

    Pop-culture is good for seeing what stupid people are interested in spending their free time with.


    Anal sex and laughing at stereotypes.

    The mathematics sounds right to me, but I don't know more than second-year engineering courses. I've always found the technique is to listen to everything, and hope that by the end they have included every important detail so that I can re-form it in my own head. I'm a little curious now as to what you are planning on doing combining probabilities and moments and programming.

    Physics. Not on a technical university, but a more scientifically inclined one. But yes, many of those things we learn could be applied elsewhere. I will see how I work things out.

    That's what I do everywhere I go; you wouldn't want to live where I do.
