    Job options for a math phd?

    If you know your way around Excel and Python (or some other basic coding), you could be a game designer in the gaming industry (slot machines, video poker, etc). If you shine at statistical analysis, there are tons of jobs in Big Data.

    can't think of that song with a female artist in I think yellow

    That sounds like me trying to remember names. I’ll say, “I can’t remember his name, but I think it starts with an M.” … and later I remember that the name is David.

    Sleeping Problems

    Agreed. Several years ago, I complained to my doctor about sleeping issues and he - being nothing more than a licensed prescription factory - prescribed Ambien. I used a whole pill once and a half pill twice. All three times I used it, I was so groggy that I couldn't function until late...

    What did people think of the new Dune movie

    I read 5 of the Dune books and I have the same question. My recollection of Dune is that it has a well-developed storyline told on a grandiose scale, but that it also has a lot of stuff that just felt like weirdness for the sake of weirdness. Like there are so many concepts of ways things could...

    Sleeping Problems

    That happened to me earlier this week. I have a massive collection of bad memories (most of them are times that I did the wrong thing in a social situation because I didn't understand it then as well as I do now). So a few nights ago, I lay down to go to sleep and it seemed like all of them came...

    Sleeping Problems

    I have the same issue. It doesn't matter how tired I am - If I can't turn my brain off then I can't go to sleep. Earlier this week, I was seriously considering looking for some over-the-counter sleep medication again. I would love to find something that knocks me out quickly and doesn't leave...

    Learning to read: whole word vs phonics?

    I also had a serious reading compulsion when I was younger. If there were words around me, I had to read them. It didn't matter what else was going on around me, whether someone was talking to me or what else I was supposed to do - if there were words, I had to read them. I think that went away...

    Learning to read: whole word vs phonics?

    I imagine everyone starts by learning to sound out words. If we can't sound out words, we can never learn how to pronounce new words. Then, after we become fluent, we start "sight reading" - learning to recognize a word at a glance. I don't remember learning to read - I've been able to read for...

    What would you do if you won a massive lottery jackpot?

    I would retire, and then maybe buy some land. I'm sure I would find other things to do, like see the northern lights and see a full solar eclipse, but I would mainly just want to simplify my life. Alas, I work for a company that runs a lot of the lotteries and employees and everyone in their...

    Does anyone collect Funko?

    My children collect Funko pop figures. They're cute, if you like them (the figures, not my kids. My kids are cute whether you like them or not. :p) As for NFTs and cryptocurrency, there's a reason they're crashing. Their value is not based on anything physical or backable, but solely on the...

    Soda poll!

    Here's a nifty map of the where each term (soda, cola, pop) is more popular in the US. I haven't seen a map for terms outside the US.
