Discrete like a sledge hammer [Jan. 27th, 2007|07:00 pm]
I am convinced that the dark art known as "discrete math" is a tool used to utterly beat ones right brain in to submission, break its will, and force it into a life of slavery doing left brain things. If you're lucky, your right brain dies in the process.

If I pass this class with a fragment of my right brain intact, I'm going to drink heavily and hope everything but it drowns.

Lets see if I can quantify that in discrete math. For all portions of my right brain, for all cells corrupted by discrete math, there exists a quantity of alcohol sufficient to snuff them.

Hrm, but then I risk obliterating my right brain completely.

If there is anything I've learned from math, it is that many functions have inverses; functions that undo what the original function does. Discrete math is a class and a class has a function. Is there a class which undoes discrete math? overt poetry? unified sculpture? holistic theology? Or is discrete math a chronic, contagious condition that all engineers, scientists, and arithmeticians contract from their professors and pass on to future pupils?

Let P(there) = light at the end of the tunnel!
