    No, we don't have Cadbury at all. I'd like to mention that Cadbury Dairy Milk tastes rather strange and I much prefer even Milka. Ritter Sport and Lindt are even better though. In terms of chocolatey eggs, the most popular thing that you'll find in Germany (excluding the stuff that is sold exclusively for easter) is the "Überraschungsei" ("Kinder Überraschung"(sic!) or "Kinder Surprise"(UK brand name)).

    I like Lindt, but Cadbury's is the best of the really cheap chocolate by some way. I eat far too much of it.

    Yup, right next to my college dad . Correct me if I'm wrong, but I suppose you're the girl with the straight long hair that sometimes walks back from GRM to VC together with Zhen Lin (I'm pretty sure it's him, unless he's got a twin brother :eyeball: ) ?
    I'm a ****. Any chance I could steal today's GRM notes, please? :o:

    I really need to get a better alarm clock. Will do that this weekend, hopefully...

    I must admit to liking Dairy Milk in its pure form (i.e. not all the other Cadbury's confectionery) but realise it is in its own category. Milka is nothing special and my favourite supermarket-available chocolate is Lindt and also Green and Black's (have you tried it? It's Cadbury's decent brand). Kinder = bleugh

    I go to specialist chocolate shops far too often, though

    True, he goes slowly. But he also doesnt explain anything. This course is going the same way as Numbers and Sets where I didnt bother re-reading the notes because they reminded me of the tedium and general feeling of vegitivity in the lectures because of the at-the-time-inexplicable things he did, so I just winged the course. Badly, though. I'm sure if I did re-read them they'd be perfectly acceptable, but that's just not going to happen.
    Vector calc is a really bizarre methods course. With no scrap of exaggeration: all I got out of 24 lectures of vector calculus is "just do what your intuition tells you; I'm not going to prove it to you, but it works nearly always". At the beginning of the course I found it quite tricky, but as I got further and further on with this, I found the later example sheets becoming absolutely trivial. Several questions on the last example sheet are literally adding i, j and k everywhere to put stuff into summation convention, followed by four pages of algebra to prove it's all equal to zero. It's nonsense.

    As general ranting: dynamics is ********; numbers and sets is a pathetically easy course (minor nonsense about divisibility, the IEP, and a bit of "R is big, Q is small" countability rubbish) and the notes are actually pretty decent, but you won't realise it until after your analysis course, or if you're like me, till after your summer exam; analysis is rubbish until after you've finished it, then if you're a pure mathmo you look back and realise it was actually kinda interesting, if you're an applied mathmo you instantly dismiss it as air-headed hippy *****; met&top (third term) you'll have a similar experience with, though even the applied mathmos will see a tiny bit of sense in metric spaces, and even the pure mathmos will get a bit freaked out at topological spaces; groups is great, but is actually really easy (another fact you won't realise till you attend GRM); no other courses seem to warrant my comments, because I can't remember them right now.

    A bit too long for me to translate, but for the German speakers amongst you (K.T., gluups, generalebriety?), this should be a very interesting article. It's written by a professor at a German university who is resigning his chair at the end of this semester as a protest against the Bologna reforms (i.e. introduction of Bachelor/Master system, replacing the old Diplom).
    That is quite interesting. I love the first paragraph, because I agree with it entirely, and it's such a shame that we've lost that attitude nowadays, even here. Of course, the description of it is idealised, but still...

    Because I don't have a Camwhore thread any more, I offer you my instrument and his cousin. A surprising number of people at the session the other night appeared to not notice that my Timple had suddenly sprouted double the number of strings :p:

    An East German friend of our family, upon coming to England for the first time in the early nineties, exclaimed in astonishment the first time she tried Cadbury's: "Oh wow, you have DDR chocolate here! It's just the same...like mashed cardboard".


    Swiss chocolate wins, imo.
