I know the subject has come up before about synesthesia here, but has anyone ever heard of someone being able to taste music?  I've been looking around the interwebs to see, because this happens to me, but my google fu is weak.

What do different sounds taste like?

Conversely, what do the same sounds taste like?

After we pulled out of Iraq, we had tons of military ordinance left unused and unsold.

Then some Titan of Capitalism suggested they sell it to police departments "to combat terrorism."


I know that in Pokémon Go, the monsters are intended to be scattered in "appropriate" environments: Water monsters near water, etc.

But it's kind of depressing that where I work has nothing but pigeons and rats to collect.

Nailed the test on Differential Equations.  Mostly because we stuck primarily with qualitative solutions, dipping our toes into computational (Euler's Method), and pretty much not even looking at analytic solutions.

Still, I'll take 100% anyway.  Next, we're finally going to start looking at Chaos.

May I say this is the best thing I've heard all week?

But I shall survive to be a pest for some time yet.

Go on with your bad, venomous bile self!

The political betting markets must be really wild right now.

I dunno man, I think Charley's was pretty awesome.  But hey, I'm sort of damaged myself, so who knows?

I've been having similar thoughts.  I want people to like me, but when I try to play along, my best move is to be silent, laugh along, and do my best to toss in some clever joke when I can.  God forbid I find something interesting to talk about -- I get the weirdest looks.

If you need me, I'll be in the back.

So far, it's really fun. I miss being a student.

First week down. Integrated functions, fixed points, graphs.

My understanding was there, but I forgot how to take quizzes and got 7/10. Need to slow down.

Still, the course instructor is pleasant and the concepts were well laid out. I think I can do this.

Algebra was rustier than I thought, though. May need to hit Khan Academy for a bit.
