A quick post tonight cos my friend's coming over soon.

I had a few questions asked of me recently so i'm going to (try to) briefly answer them.

Okay, referring to yesterday's post about school...

'SOSE' stands for Studies Of Society and Environment.

'LOTE' stands for Languages Other Than English.

In Wednesday's post, Planetx asked why my TV volume numbers are 4, 6, 8, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 24, 26, 28, 32, 37, 43, 48 and 54, after i told him that i had a method for choosing them...


There are 2 points you first have to understand:

- I have a strong dislike for fives and multiples of five.

- The basic numbers of the pattern are 6, 11, 16, 21, 26, 32, 37, 43, 48 and 54.

Here we go...

The first five numbers of my pattern are multiples of 5, +1.

The next two numbers are multiples of 5, +2.

The next two are again multiples of 5, +3.

And so it continues, although luckily my volume does not go up to 65, because that would be part of the pattern. :/

The other numbers that i added in to the pattern just felt... well, i don't know how to put it... They just felt 'right'.

I dunno... I guess that's what being inside of my head feels like - numbers just feel wrong or right.

I really don't like straightforward number patterns. I don't really like any sort of patterns, but this pattern is so bizarre that it just feels... nice. It makes me feel comfortable, and although it doesn't give me any sort of happiness, if i did not have my pattern, i would feel uncomfortable.

My friend's here now so i have to go. :P

Maybe you should keep your Architecture elective...

Who knows? If you think about numbers in special patterns, you might be the next Good Will Hunting!

What do you think of them apples?

Hope you had a great time with your friend and that you have an even better holiday.

ok, so can you look at math problems and figure them out without having to work them? i used to be able to do that, until they "taught" me how to do math. i'm not for shit at it any more.

Thanks for the explanation- and I thought it was interesting. But I'm a huge my endorsement shouldn't lead you to any false conclusion that it actually _is_ interesting :-)
