    I truly feel this site needs a great deal more followers I am bored to death at work so I decided to browse your article on my iphone during lunch break. That is a smart way of thinking about it. You remind me of my bff. You are more fun than bubble wrap.

    I hate math…its just numbers made to quantify an universe that is not worth quantifying. Its just to marvelous to be put in numbers and distancing it from the masses.

    Vekat, even I hate engineers, that includes myself.
    This is what engineers do (programmers)
    1. Stumble upon a Problem
    2. Google about the problem
    3. Apply and Test
    4. If fail, go to 2 Else quit!

    Cool quotes there Karthik. I particularly like the one about Applied Mathematics. A slur on all engineers worldwide (including myself) but definitely very humourous.
