    Oh I've got plugs for the bungs. I kinda want to leave the gauge on. It looks cool :D

    Heh heh. You said bunghole.

    Now this is wrenching music!

    I'm the 3rd little pig, Bill's Rambo and these carbs are the wolf. My bike is that goofy pig house about to fall off that hill :lol3 Alriiiiiight...on to calculus :puke2

    Hey now... we need more of this! The physicists and mathematicians are dying around me :(

    Have you tried closing the blinds? Nerds are allergic to sunshine. We burn like vampires if we go outside in the daytime :D

    Why are you surrounded by physicists and mathematicians anyways?

    I got a minor in math. My college experience:
    Calc 1 is weird.
    Calc 2 is bullshit (especially the trig identities).
    Calc 3 is easy (it's just Calc 1 with an extra dimension).
    Diff Eq is frighteningly easy.
    Linear Algebra is the easiest.
    Engineering Statistics is its own language unlike anything else.
    Math Modeling is the most difficult and most awesome.

    I'm working on a minor in Math right now too. Other than Calc and Linear, all my other math classes are aimed at Computer Science majors rather than engineering like yours though. The job of economics is mainly programming statistical analysis software so I piggyback on the CompSci department's classes a lot.

    Linear Algebra is the main reason why I'm getting the minor. Matrices explain most of what the program is doing behind the scenes of data analysis.

    Math modeling? Seriously? Are math students so left-brained that we need to let them make numbers out of clay to spark some creativity?:lol3

    There's always non linear equations to melt your brain

    Allow me to get some more mileage out of this screen-shot I took of a program I wrote in MatLab.

    neat! That class is basically what my life is going to look like if I get this gubment job.

    I've learned SAS and Stata so far and I've got R ahead of me. I'll likely never use MatLab thogh. Engineering statistics uses very different models from social statistics. Particles are a bit more predictable than peoples. Well, at least they are now.....muahaha!

    It's an airhead, man. Anything you do on it is 'nerd shit.' :D

    Airheads ARE the nerds of the motorcycling community. This sub-forum is like that cafeteria table way off in the corner where pasty small kids in glasses huddle in a group for protection. :lol3

    I've got a d20 the size of a racquetball. It might be hanging from my rear-view by this afternoon. :jjen

    I've got to weld a fitting onto the muffler and a few hangers for a spring. It's too tight to get my plumbing clamps to work there. After that I can take it to the man with the jets. I thought I'd get it done last night but after 11 hours on campus I didn't trust myself with heavy machinery :twitch

    I've been trying all my life to escape the nerd/geek persona. Within every hobby I try and like, there is a group of nerds that I finally find. I don't seek out the Kool-Aid. The Kool-Aid finds me. And yes, I know what a d20 is. I still have my original (in mint condision, no less) complete set of hardback books for D&D.

    Conclusion: Nerds are like Rednecks, and Deadheads. We are everywhere. :freaky

    There's a nerd fad going on. Everybody who's not a nerd says they're a nerd. If you actually are a real nerd, they call you a hipster for saying you were down with it in the '90s. :lol3

    You should do more dumb stuff like this to your bike, Richard. Stock is so.....stock :D

    I ordered the Moose Raptor bars Jenna found and the Magura clutch perch AW's using. Man I'd be screwed without ADVRider. Thanks! :thumb

    Well, glad to hear science and math torch still burning. Been around too many passing, retiring etc and not being back filled. A large reason Boeing left Wichita - the engineers were retiring faster than being replaced and certainly challenging finding US replacements. Sorry for the detour.

    Yeah I don't care about detours. Hell I don't own this place. If you want to start posting stupid cat pictures feel free. Why else do we have a forum except to talk to folks that feel the need to turn wrenches on the same bike we do?...And possibly crash on their couch when we're riding through their part of the world some day :D As long as it's not politics, religion or oil I think we can keep this thread out of the Basement.

    Things might be different in Canada, but in the US, Hockey's not exactly main stream, ya feel me? :D

    You'll be glad to hear I've made progress on the footpegs, Richard.

    I'm pretty sure this is a bad idea. I can stand on the pegs and they hold up fine but I think they'll bust the valve cover in a wreck. Which is fine. I've got spare rockers so even if I trash the valve train it'll be worth it for the pictures.

    That ship always reminds me of a crankshaft.

    Come on, you know you want one of these :D

    Kinda looks like a KLR. Makes sense coming from a world of junk :lol3
