it's alright. there's not that many nerds.

it also depends on what your programming on how big of nerds you'll encounter. if you stick with ajax, .net, cfml, sql and oracle based programming, you'll be among the least nerdy.

when you start programming in ancient technology, then then nerds come out.

the pay is good. i don't dress up all the time. and i'm not really a 'programmer'... i used to be by trade... even though i'm an engineer (and not a CS style engineer, like a real, bread and butter Mechie)... nowadays, i just oversee programmers and data analysts and suck off a few middle management gurus and project managers to make sure what i'm planning goes without hitches. lots and lots of analysis. (i'm what you'd call a business analyst)
sounds kinda boring lol

let me assure you. it's well worth it when you make the transition from programmer to BA (and eventually i'll get into the Project Managment position and then i'll take everyone out for white castle)

Iran is run by a group of shia clerks who allow certain individuals to run for office. In that particular manner, where it's not specifically run by the monastic element, it is dictated by it.

Vatican City is definitely a theocratic city state with itself being run by Archbishop Lajolo. He's basically 'in charge' of it all. Delegating printing, security, and all taxation of vatican lands. (all .44 square miles of it)..

Uh. Branch Davidaism (think david koresh), did that on a smaller scale outside of waco. Where it wasn't a full fledge government, but on a small scale of trying to secede from the 'outside world' to protect themselves from the oncoming apocolypse.

Jonestown and Peoples temple, it was a settlement in guayana... theocracy by way of brutality. Most of you kids were too young. I was even too young.

hell we could have even talked about early american history, the spanish inquisition, it all depends on what you define as religion? a set of common ideals? you could have cold war russia in that state. the state religion which controlled the government was the sole belief in the stalinist state and his essential ultimate control as the leader (because honestly, why would you have the battle of st. petersburg if you didn't have some fanatical fervent of pseudo-relgious ideals?)

okay. so yes. the taliban too was a good example. teachers like creativity too? because everyone saying the taliban would be boring to discuss...

i forgot the non-adherent examples.
sorry.

norway. official state church - lutheran. constantly trying to detach the the church from the state due to rising muslim populations.

england. official state church - anglican. the head of the anglican church is technically queen elizabeth the second, or the current head of state for england. but. the vestigal parts of the monarchy exist but hold no power, and thus is not a theocracy. ditto canada and australia (in some grand way).

A couple problem solving questions...

1.) What could be the next term in this sequence:

2, 10, 202,...

2.) An unusual die has six faces labeled 1,2,3,5,7,9. If two of these dice are rolled and the numbers showing on the upper faces are added, what is the probability of rolling a sum of 10?

You can only get a sum of 10 by rolling 1 and 9 or 3 and 7 or 5's. Obviously the numbers can occur on each dice so there are 2 ways of getting 1 and 9, 3 and 7, 5's. So there are 6 ways of rolling a sum of 10. There are 6 possibilities on each dice so 36 different combinations can be achieved in total. Therefore the probability is 6/36 or 1/6.

There's probably an easier way of explaining what I said, but I am pretty sure it's right. I'm having a brain fart on number 1, I'll have a think.

Well you probably should have read it, but in The Metamorphosis, the main character wakes up one day and is a bug and his family like hates him, and in the end he kills himself. Not much help, I know. Look for a summary of it cause I'm sure you could find some cliff notes that talk about it and existentialism.

At least one of these should help.

ok so i need a calculator function similar to a factorial, but instead of multiplying, adding the proceeding numbers. I think its probably something to do with probability but i cant remember.

hahah we just read this. Are you in AP Senior English?

It's mostly the isolation, depression, guilt, etc. he feels because he's unable to provide for his family. His family honestly doesn't really care about him when he was in human state, they were all about the cash he brought in. They eventually become disgusted with him and are actually overjoyed that the monstrosity died, but the story is basically the huge disconnect that becomes wider as a result of him getting animalized.

OH OH also, as a human, he pretty much was robotic. He doesn't appreciate art or beauty, doesn't form friendships, has no soul but to work and support his family. Wasn't even love anymore for them, more like instinct. But when he becomes a bug, he becomes "human", and appreciates the beauty of his sister playing the violin, gets aroused sexually, and loves his family and desires their love in return. In a sense he's more human as a bug than as a man.

If you need anymore help just ask, I know i didn't really relate it to the prompt real well but we finished it a couple weeks ago and i tried to get my thoughts all down just now.

You put the 2 and 10 together=210. Subtract backwards from the original, 10-2=8. 210-8=202. So.. 10202,202-10=192. 10202-192=10010

I quarantee Im wrong, thats just how my mind works.

I need some help with a college assignment folks . . .

I am having some difficulty coming up with an idea to write a story on for one of my Journalism classes . . . The assignment is to identify a growing trend among college students or a trend of universities.

Can anyone think of some good ideas? +Rep for anyone who helps me out.

I really don't know if this is helpful but I would say 3 out of every 5 kids I see around my campus are listening to iPods between walking to class. Not really sure it is a growing trend but with some research I bet 7 years ago it was a lot different.

You could probably make an argument for the use of laptops in class / lectures also and see if there is a connection between how high tech the school is.

Funny you mention those ideas . . . the I-Pod story is alreayd being done by more than a couple people in my class. I don't want to do the same story.

But as for laptop usage, I consider that as a possibility at this point. Seems like a lot more people are bringing laptops to class these days . . . my University has wireless internet all over campus . . .

I'm just not sure if there are any true statistics available that I could use to make my argument for this . . . I'd like to consider more options . . .

Thanks

You people not motivated by rep points anymore? I thought that was all you cared about?
