        Do basements usually get updates? Like Android? Or Windows?

        (I suppose windows could be an update for a basement)

      Nordic skiing is expensive. Just had to buy new boots for $150 for skis with different bindings.

        All skiing is expensive, in fact it used to be that x-country skiing was way cheaper than downhill even aside from the lack of lift tickets.

        Yeah, I think for the most part x country is cheaper, until you get into higher end stuff. I mean, my classic skiis I use I got for $10 at goodwill. My skate skiis on the otherhand, cost a bunch. And the combi boots, two sets of poles, waxing gear, wax, ect. Now I got backcountry skiis, got backcountry boots for the special backcountry bindings.

        But its worth it. Something special about getting out into the forest, twisting around up and down trails in silence. Working to get up a hill, enjoying the ride down. I enjoy skate skiing the most, but there are no groomed ski places near my college. Plenty near my house to skate at, but none at college. Which is why I got backcountry skiis. With these, I don't need trails. I can go wherever.

        Yeah, I meant to say that im pretty sure we did no calculus. Not that I can remember at least. Well, I never have to take statistics again, so I can just forget about it now. Only have to take one more math course next semester, then I already get my math minor. 2 more CS classes to get my CS minor. Then just finish up my Mechanical Engineering with acoustics concentration major over the next 2.5 years

        There was no calculus when I took statISTICS. First Stats class was wicked hard and boring. Spent all my efforts just trying to memorize the formulas. The next level Stats class was easier and fun. When I took the MBA level class, it was like high school probability math. This is when I decided an MBA was a waste for me if I'm just repeating my undergrad, only dumbed down more.

        No, just have to find the forces in all the members of two trusses, each with about 15 members. 5 hours later, and I just finished. Modeled on computer too, which was much easier.

        I decided to give up on coding in university after too many 5AM nights debugging one f’ing bug (different bugs each time). And this was with a couple of other guys, so not just my terrible coding skills!

        Intererstingly, I thought I solved one bug in a dream while I was asleep and called the guys the next morning to try it out - it worked!
