@klibberfish That is some quality Boy Meets World referencing right there.

On Math: Still Irrelevant

@oodelally Congrats on finishing senior design, there's very few feelings better than that!

@Xaxa Ocean flows (especially circulation) as well as atmospheric flows. While I focus pretty heavily on the physics side of stuff I've gotten to take a couple of classes on broader aspects of geophysical fluids. Things like climate models and weather models rely heavily on the mathematical models used for fluid flows at those scales, which I find just crazy awesome.

@The Angels Have the Phonebox I think I hate airplane wings more than you do!

@Xaxa Oh beam deformation, I think that sticks in everyone's head. I could totally see how it would help with the geology side of things! Truthfully I am much less of a solids person, I am very much a fluid dynamics person (geophysical fluids, these days). But even so, I will always remember that bending beam.

@Sydney C I'm an engineering grad student, so yeah, I use math everyday. However, in my last year of undergrad I took a ring theory class just for the hell of it, and I have never regretted it - it was one of the most fun classes I took that year. "Incredibly cool and wondrous" is a great way to describe it!

On Gasp! A Canadian Political Scandal!

The "we only have the one helicopter so it's really important" tag is cracking me up.

On Tall Girls: A Story of Giants

@LeafySeaDragon I'm 5'9 now, so I'm definitely on the tall side, but I was always a really tall kid. Since I apparently looked about 5-6 years old at the age of 3. My mother has told me that she would have random strangers come up to her in stores and give her crap for my behaviour - "your child is acting like a 3-year-old!" Awesome...
