  •  i had a mental block against algebra (1+ / 0-)

    (horrid sexist teacher for first intro) - got out of college with the math requirement ONLY because "modern" math was the class - i could add 2+2 and get 10 - piece of cake since it was a totally new language.

    never grasped algebra until i fell in love with video games and someone explained how the cursor moved x spaces over and y lines down to calculate where the target would be...

    that, and realizing if i didn't learn vectoring, speed and current - if i ever got my dream chance to sail to london, i might end up in africa instead!

    then it started to make sense!

    it is all about being relevant!
