That is what I figure but some blowhard professor will probably still demand I calculate by using long math with pencil and paper.

 

A local school has a archtecture AAS degree program that I have been interested (a friend of mine got his degree there and has a job doing some drawings for a local guy) but I am not sure of the actual value of it (his "employer" is a family friend).

 

 

I still do tons of math, but it's almost always quick stuff (elevations, slopes, etc.).  Cut/fill calcs occasionally (which are tedious).  The water conservation calculations required in CA are a real pain in the ass, but it's still pretty straight forward.

 

I really regret that all of my calculus (3 years) is totally, completely, and (I fear) irrevocably gone.

 

Well, when I said I don't do any math I do use the simple calc in windows quite a bit but that is just simple arithmetic. And, Yes, I agree, Calculus and Trig is completely long gone. Geometry is used every day but SolidWorks takes care of most of that. I will even create new parts so I don't have to do pythagorean. I have gotten very lazy that way.
.

 

 

So, what you guys are saying is that the thing that is keeping me from school, is the very thing that will never, ever, never be used?

 

Correct!

Discovering that you are only 15-years-old puts everything into perspective now.

I've kidnapped Phil and I'm holding him hostage.  My demands are Dick Tidrow's mustache, Hansman's XXL grill, and for Javier Baez to learn plate discipline.

 

I don't want to know why you have a puppet.

 

when I was in second grade I wanted to be a ventriloquist.  that didn't work out well I pulled it out because I'm going to sell it on ebay with other crushed hopes and dreams of my childhood like my keyboard.

Looks more like that cowboy doll for toy story to me.

That is by far the creepiest thing I've seen on the Message Boards yet.  And that's saying something with Cheeseburger Joe around.
