With Purdue trying to hang on to their dignity I had to escape. I am a loyal fan, but I was already pissed at my cable company and needed to take my mind off of the thrashing that OSU was giving Purdue. (Every team has off nights and I liked the headline on the student newspaper this morning, "Not Even Close!") I digress...so I turned the channel to comedy central for tosh.O and started looking for something else to do. After checking my email and Facebook accounts I decided to tackle some Particle Design homework. Yes, I choose to do homework to blow off some steam. I actually got on a pretty good role until Excel decided that probability distributions were too hard for it. And yes, I installed the Data Analysis add-in, but unless you know how to graph histograms with variable sized bins don't be hatin'! See below. I finished 2 problems of 7 and felt somewhat better.
|The x-axis numbers relate to the beginning of a bin. |
They are clearly not the same size! The overall area should add up to 1,
but it can't because of the unequal bins...damn you Excel!
-I own 3 types of Trivial Pursuit (Pop Culture, Wii video game, and the new Trivial Pursuit Steal) and have on more than one occasion had friends over just to play Trivial Pursuit.
-My top websites that I visit include PopSci.com, Gizmodo.com, io9.com, and pharmtech.com. They rival my time spent on ESPN.com and facebook.com easily.
-Every sci-fi movie is ultimately interesting to me because I ponder the reality of the situation. Could something like this happen? You never know.
The list could go on and I know I'm going to get that comment that says, "Hey Matt, you are nerd!" I understand that I just thought I would share that little insight with you all. So, if you want, send my your "You know you're a nerd when..." story and I'll post it in the Friday Fragments!
