    Empire. The Telegraph are complaining.
    Meh. If you spend all your time pandering to the kind of people who go around looking for things to take offence at, you'd never get anything done.

    I posted a thread a few weeks ago about my fears that the nightlife/parties at Cambridge would be boring/ there wouldn't be much to do but everyone reassured me
    It depends on what you're into really, Formal followed by Cindies isn't exactly everyone's idea of fun, but you'll find out when you get here. :yep:

    Can't wait to start actually studying some detailed and interesting economics. I'm not a big fan about the way the A level is taught or the syllabus content.
    It's very methodical, not really much room for creative or independent thinking.
    Hmm, it's certainly different and more interesting, not so sure about the 'creative or independent thinking'. Again, you'll find out soon enough.

    ooh exciting times! :jive: which sheet?
    Probability 2.

    And what is it with me and supervisions? They are all completely useless. Walking for 25 minutes to the CMS then another 25 back again was not worth it for that hour of pretending to be awake and saying 'yeah' every 30 seconds. I didn't even care enough to notice what question he was supposedly solving ffs.

    I suppose I need to go now, but if any mathmo has done VC2 Q6, it would be very nice if you could confirm that it is actually NOT solenoidal and I'm therefore not an idiot. (well, I guess disagreeing with me would be okay too :tongue: . )

    Err, it looks pretty trivially solenoidal to me. :tongue: Take its divergence, and all the terms magically cancel out. Then notice that curl(0, 0, psi) = (d(psi)/dy, -d(psi)/dx, 0) and just solve the easy coupled PDEs.

    Hmm, maybe. I really ought to learn a V2 language properly at some stage.
    And I should learn at least one other European language properly at some stage... French doesn't seem to be going well; my active vocabulary is very poor, and my passive vocabulary isn't great either... I don't even know the weekdays.

    Ah yes, it obviously is. I took the wrong partial derivatives before. Thanks...

    Because I have an infinite amount of spare time, I have discovered that question 12 on your DE1 is the same as a question on one of our examples sheets.

    For the purposes of linguistics, a romance language would probably be best, but V2s are also pretty interesting. My French is passable (poor active vocab, reasonable passive), and my Spanish less so (poor active and passive vocab), but I want to learn things from more interesting groups (i.e. languages that are less like English) when I get a chance. Incidentally, I was explaining how Japanese orthography worked to my supervisor today, and she couldn't believe how insane it was. Explaining it all in one go makes you see what a bad writing system it really is. :tongue:

    Emma's getting bad press for our May Ball theme
    I'm not surprised, to be fair. They didn't even book us

    I have proved again that I am incapable of having a pleasant supervision. I feel physically ill.
