You are a girl and I would call you a rational person. But, yeah you can't blame people like that. Its hard for a male to think what is attractive to girls. But, lol I can't stand contradictory advice. Like go in H and R, its like be a bad boy, then its like be nice. Then, its like personality is improtant, then ten minutes later its not.

Guys are much easier to understand as they go on looks like 90% of the time. Its just girls are confusing as hell, guys are much simpler it would be easier to be gay.
I was saying it was just lame that three different guys had all criticised his body for being 'puny', which, if anything, was TOO muscular. It's like, looking at a picture of your size 6 friend and have three different girls calling her fat. Just, no.
Girls who want a 'bad boy' and who don't care about personality are just ******* stupid. Girls aren't hard to understand, really... I could set up translating services.

If you're so poor as to not be able to afford a washboard, and have to resort to using your untoned stomach instead, do you have a washboard stomach? :moon:
If you have a six pack, but use your stomach to carry around a spare tyre, are you fat? :moon:

I wonder if there is a last minute achievement in life. I deserve some award for leaving everything to the last minute. Yeah, to sleep deprivation and stats coursework.

P.S. I hope they won't kick me out for sucking at stats. I should have cheated. This isn't even maths, what a joke. The notes are awful aswell. How am I meant to know how to use bias estimator or how to do a confidence interval on two distribution that are unknown when I don't know the standard deviation of one of the population, thingy. Well, thats all zeroes on student satisfaction.

Least squares approximation? MLE?...

In principle I agree though. Stats is desperately boring unless applied to something about which you care.

Yeah, I got that now. Something to do with mse.

Just need to do the last question about confidence intervals.

Stats is basically a applied subject. Sort of like the friend that you keep around because he's extremely usefull, but extremely boring.

That would be rude if I said yes. But, it was an analogy.

It's quite abstract, apparently.

A vector space doesn't "look" like anything, it's just a place where vectors exist...

Okay, what is a vector and what does a vector look like?

As I'm unclear what a vector is. Its like a point here with an arrow pointing towards it. So its something with magnitude and direction, but then it talks about functions being vector spaces.

Wikipedia doesn't help. As vector means a lot of crazy stuff.

You can't "see" a vector. I like to think of it as something that takes you from one point to another, kinda like a mathematical train.

The way I think about vector spaces is as the place in which a certain kind of vector can "live". For example, all vectors of the form (x,y,z) exist within the vector space R^3. No matter which numbers you put in, they will all be in that space. Think of it like a massive fish tank.

Algebraically, a vector space is a set of vectors. This is where the concept of a basis comes in. A basis is the fundamental building block of a vector space. For example, in R^3 you can build any vector v with v1 (1,0,0) + v2(0,1,0) + v3(0,0,1). You can then build your vector space from the set of all of these vectors. Can you see how this describes the entire space?

To all of the purists, I'm sorry if my explanation is too simple or if I've missed the point somewhere. Feel free to correct me if I've actually explained something incorrectly...

Trains in a fish tank? This won't end well. :erm:
