I'm increasingly worried by the number of times I've been repped for puns, especially as only one was negative ("This is because I can't be bothered to go upstairs and kick you." ), but thanks whoever it was (I think I know who it was, but I'm not absolutely certain). If you take out the rep for puns, making fun of my self and correcting people's grammar (which I haven't done in ages and tried to only do to people who deserve it) I'm only left with bizarre reps like these:

And Black-Scholes is not to do with black holes :sigh: - Black and Scholes were people and they came up with a method of pricing options.

I swear I was watching a program and it was saying that its bad that economics is based on some mathematics in physics. http://visions.iop.org/v4.html

Well, heat diffusion equation.

P.S. You guys. Its a honest mistake to mix up two different branches of physics. Its not that funny.

Moving away from the car-crash that is Simplicity, here's a really interesting use for the Black-Scholes equation.

Worst notation ever: "Uh" (U some subset of a group, g some element of the group).

Looks like I was just really annoyed when doing Met&Top. (Which is accurate I suppose)

Why does everyone hate metric and topological spaces!?!?!

I don't hate Met&Top, I hate having to do work.

We had three courses in exam term to do for michaelmas, I've only chosen to do M&T. (So I guess I prefer it to the others)

I'm debating the merits of it. I can think of plenty of things I'd rather do.

It's definitely not useless, although I did find the example sheets very dry.

I liked Met+Top, though according to my breakdown (which finally arrived today) it was my worst pure course other than Complex Analysis. (And that's only if you don't include the combined Complex Analysis and Complex Methods questions.)

Edit: It looks like the example sheets have changed quite a lot though.

It has come up in one way or another in:

Analysis II, Linear Algebra, GRM, Complex analysis and Geometry

(and that's not even looking at all the Part II courses)

Analysis is "nice to have." The rest have a few neat applications.
