Before our Act Sci 3503 test, we were all looking around prepared for the ogive-drench Nelson-Aalen estimator induced death march.Â I looked at the guy next to me and asked him to show me his game face.Â Nothing… I asked the guy to the right of me, and he look stern faced.Â I started making my way around the room and finally got a solid “grr…” after some prodding.Â Then, we got to the Asian TA who without provocation clenched his fists, winced his eyes and gave a resounding “raaaaaw”.Â That broke the tension nicely.
We discussed interview dress today in BA 2101 and the teacher mentioned that if you’re interviewing for marketing or buying for a clothier you should wear their attire to the interview.Â I immediately burst out laughing.Â The teacher asked what was so funny and responded “Speedo”.
It was going to say Victoria’s Secret, which is what I was thinking but between the feminist majority bitch in the 2nd row and the fact that they’re trying to become a dresswear firm I opted against it
Later the term “butter mustache” came up but I can’t remember under what context and a somehow that got combined with hummus to make a Dirty Sanchez.Â I fell asleep during this, so I may have missed something
In actuarial modeling we discussed estimating parameters as represented by phi.Â We went over various methods ofÂ estimating and other determinations and one student was having trouble figuring out what phi was doing.Â After a tense interchange the instructor finally blurted out “don’t make a point estimate, only God knows phi!”
BA 4196 – Instructed by the world’s ugliest man. In fact, during the opening discussion I had trouble talking with him as I was distracted by all the hideous he had on his face. He has bat-like vision and dog-like hearing and doesn’t like computers so I’ve been trying to find a way to type quietly.
Econ 3563 – Instructor’s taught the course for 38 years and does the entire course without notes or an outline and I’ve always admired teachers that could that. He has no concept of formatting and it appeared he was equally likely to double space after a period as to simply hit tab.
Him: Unless your an accountant or an actuary, most of the material in this course is useless.
Me: WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (my shout of joy lasted a good three seconds and was impolitely loud)
He also made fun of Philadelphia for using the term jimmies instead of sprinkles.
Lunch-A delicious chicken Caesar sandwich. If tasty needed a representative on the UN Security Council, this sandwich would be in the running as a delegate from Tastionia.
Act Sci 3503-Worst handwriting I’ve ever seen, like difficulty making somewhat straight lines bad. Â He read the syllabus as someone who’s retiring remembers the milestones of his work “Credibility indexes, we had some wild times when those first came on the scene.Â We were young” and the like.
Train-Sandwiched between woman thinking I was reading her book and women whose book I was reading.
