Excellent! Then we won't have to hear either your drivel or your drive miracles! The first post was hysterical, but the 2nd was just pathetic. What a tool.My last time anything is said on this forum!
In my opinion, the thread did not "go south" until the OP posted his rant about "I got a 4.0 in calculus, can you say that?"Thanks for trying but once again a new member gets dumped on and departs to spread the word about how he was treated on SCoA. It's nice to see all the new folks joining lately but this sort of thing does not encourage repeat business.
Wow. Let me do the math on this and see if I'm way off here.
Retired......65-70 years old?
Calculus......taken at 17-18 year old?
Retired age subtract age in which you took Calculus= 50+ years ago?
And you still remember the GPA that you received? Wow. That's incredible. I graduated in the late 80s can't recall the grade on any of my classes. I don't think I even made it to Calculus. Does that come after elementary math?
Props to you, your grades, and your memory. I also had quite a few classes where I earned a 4.0. But I couldn't remember those classes if my life depended on it. Some classes were easy. Some were not so easy. What I remember from high schools were never the grades or the classes I took. It was more of the girls that I was trying to chase. I remember all their names .I am 64 years of age. I took the Calculus over twenty years ago. I have tutored Calculus since then. One student, I helped to go from a failing grade to an A. Yes, I can remember my GPA in Calculus because it was so good, I never missed a problem, and did all the problems assigned. At the top of one of my homework assignments was written "Perfect as usual". Do you seriously believe I would forget something like that? When younger I was in the navy, and went in the Navy Nuclear Power program as a reactor operator. I was in section seven, which was the highest and only three of us were not college people. Before getting on schedule, it was noticed that I had completed all the math book problems in less than a day so I was put at the front of the class teaching it. My job has always been aquired and maintained because of my very good memory, so YES, I do remember my calculus GPA. How would you NOT remember a 4.0?
The Smart is a great car, the only thing I dislike is that is too light and does not do well in snow, plus if you ever need to get to the battery, have fun.
I can say that.My last time anything is said on this forum! If everyone reads everything I wrote then you will see that I said over this range, not all the time! I am not stupid, I have a 4.0 GPA in calculus. Can you say that? I also indicated that the Dash Hawk indicates 99.9 MPG while driving around town. It is the times spent starting, stopping and ideling that the gas mileage goes to pot. I always turn on the cruise control as soon as possible. How many of you consistently get around 40 MPG while driving around town? I know this was probably a fluke in gas mileage, but it did happen, hense the "almost unbelievabe MPG" title. You guys have fun playing with yourselves, I am retired and have better things to do with my time. Learn to read the whole story, not just pieces!
I thing it's that rough skin you get on your heels from walking barefoot too much.Sheesh, oh by the way what is calculus?:twak: LOL
