Math Is Hard, a Phoney?

  1. Jun 18, 2006 #1
    That Barbie(cue) thread got me to wikipedia Barbie, and there it says that the phrase barbie said was not "Math is Hard" but instead "Math Class is Tough" And they had a source too :uhh:

    Source: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0CE7DE103AF932A15753C1A964958260


    MIH is this true? Are you a phoney? Is your entire PF character a big lie? :cry:

    You'll get nowhere with that poll, Bubba. Anyone voting against MIH will have the Sisterhood in their future. :devil: :biggrin:

    Besides, MIH is a Texan, and for Texans, things are "hard"!1!1!111 :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Jus' kiddin' MIH. HEY! Put that gun down NOW!1!1 Uh oh... :surprised Math? :redface: Sweetie? :!!) Don't hurt your big sis...

    Now look what you guys started. She's just a tad PO'd. You'd better watch your steps. :biggrin:

    Thanks Wollie! I bet that'll be just the thing to cheer up MIH, and we'll all be over for the bar-b. :biggrin:

    Now, for those (Tsu :rolleyes:) who were doubting the mentors, if we locked the thread when everyone demanded it, MIH wouldn't have gotten that big box of chocolates (of course we expect she'll share with her sisters...mom said she has to), and we wouldn't have gotten the nice invite to Wollie's bar-b. We just might be wiser than you thought. :approve: (:uhh: Ivan...don't admit to anything, no matter how much she tortures you in the shower!)

    There's no way I could be in a bad mood right now. Crab legs were on sale at the market. I'm as full as a tick. And now I find out I've chocs to eat, too? Wheee, doggie! :smile:

    Good thing I did two bike rides today!

    oh, and I'll bring some more crab legs for Wol's bar b. Fresh corn roasted in the husk would be awesome, too. Will pick some up at the farmer's market.

    Sounds great! I'm stuffed full too! I spent the entire weekend at a nutrition symposium (no, I don't study nutrition, I just collaborate with someone who does and got roped into this, but it was interesting anyway, and I know a bunch of the folks from other shared research interests). So, we were listening to all these talks about obesity and high protein vs high fat vs high fiber diets, etc., then ATE (what else do you do after talking about food all day). For the lunch break yesterday, my co-chair got up and said the organizers had arranged for a practical lab experience if everyone would just head down the hall to the right. :rofl: (That's where the lunch buffet was set up.) I talked too long with people after the talks though, and wound up in the food deprivation group. :frown: (Never let the hungry grad students get at the front of the line.) But, made up for it at dinner. We had a really great barbecue at the state forest nearby. Then today, when the symposium ended, we had a lab picnic. Stuffed myself again. Then had to take a post-doc candidate out for dinner tonight, so stuffed once more. :rolleyes: Can Wollie postpone the bar-b a few days so I can get my appetite worked up again for all the yummy food he'll be making?
