# Morning Discussion

"You shouldn't do that," she sighed. "It'll hurt."

"Nonsense! You just need to concentrate." He pulled the trigger and a bullet tore through his thigh, embedding itself in the walnut-effect laminate flooring. She shook her head.

She started, "I did say..." but trailed off as he gritted his teeth, took aim then fired again.

His lower leg flopped to the ground as his thighbone splintered and gave out. He furrowed his brow and went to raise the revolver again but paused. The damned mole on his knee didn't seem so much as troubled by the whole ordeal, let alone removed.

"Ah," he uttered, raising one finger. "No, my mistake. Dreadfully sorry. You're right--it does smart a little. Could you possibly ring for an ambulance?"

The alternate Morning Discussion blurb for today follows: That snow, eh? Tsk! Can't decide whether it's coming or going. Wotta loada old tosh and no mistake, my son.

If you have BioShock 2 chat to chat, hey, here's a dedicated chat thread.

• To all those who said they thought Calc 1 was harder than Calc 2... suck it :( Just had my first test in Calc 2, and it was BRUTAL. The test was only 8 to 10 problems, and had nothing but integration on it.. but it was still hard.

I got stuck with one that I am working out now... which is kinda fun after the fact:

integrate: 1 + sinx / 1 - sinx

• IMO the hardest part in Calc 2 is just all the rote memorization, particularly when you get to sequences and series. There are a bunch of infinite series convergence tests that you have to memorize which are a pain in the ass. It doesn't all just make logical sense immediately like Calc 1 does.

On the bright side, nothing is harder than what you're doing right now. Calc 3 is easy. Discrete math is easy. Linear algebra is easy. Calc 2 is hard.
