In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

My Brain Is On Overload

Some people have brains that think in numbers. It's like the entire universe is nothing but another group of variables to crunch, rearrange and turn into mathematical equations.

My brain doesn't work that way. I'm thinking it has something to do with getting hit in the head during the fourth grade. 

Anyway, I've spent a substantial part of the day calculation radius points from chords, figuring theoretical elevations after determining the percentage of fall and plotting the information, to load into my total station for a job start on Monday. 

I think my brain is about to explode. If you hear a loud noise, you know what happened.

    1. I think I'll make it.

      My problem is I was a horrible student in advanced mathematics. I scraped through Algebra and forgot everything as soon as I slept the first time.

      My job forced me to learn basic algebra, trigonometry and geometry to find unknown points so I could build what's on the plans. I'm sure there are people that would find most of what I do as tedious and so simple, they could do it in their sleep.
