    Think of it as prep for the rest of your life.

    Your boss asks you how to solve some trivial problem and you just go all dumb? :mad: :mad: :mad:

    The most incredibly attractive, most intelligent member of the opposite sex makes a blatant proposal that just goes zing! right over your head? :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I don't get it. Why does that make your brain into [itex]\frac{da}{dt}[/itex]?? :confused:

    Please do not send me hate mail about how lame my jokes are.

    Yep, in college a number of times, textbook recommendations are here and reasons you may blank out are here.
    Are you buying this ?

    It's because you have two brains, and in right handed people the left "brain" (hemisphere) is dominant. This makes the right "brain" jealous and rebellious and it's constantly plotting against what the left brain is trying to do.

    Don't take this too seriously, but:

    I love your humor and jokes! Sometimes I'm not smart enough to understand them right away. :smile:

    Brains. Can't live without them. Can't live with them. :yuck:

    (If I had a nickel for every time a student asked me a question in class and I couldn't come up with an answer until ten minutes after class...)

    Lots of people... probably most people at one time or another.

    For me the trick is to stay 100% focused on one thing at a time.

    I walked out of my Statics final a few days ago with LOTS of time to spare. I finished in 1 hour out of 3, looked over everything for a 20 min, then left.

    Me- "Man, I feel great about that final. I'm glad I got out early too."

    Brain- "What about the friction on the bottom of that wedge?"

    Me- "D'oh. Why didn't you say something?"

    Brain- "Me? Oh, I'm too shy to say anything in class."
