siddharberry paddytha cluckfinn. ahahahahaha

now that i feel sane enough to blog again, after taking a break from my revision schedule which i planned but decided not to adhere to, here's whats been happening. the past three days went something like this:

8am: wake up
8:30 - 12:30 physics with a 1 or 1 1/2h break
12:30 - 4: sleep/tv/sleep
4 - 5: study
5 - 7:30: run/dinner/bathe/slack
7:30 - 9:30++: econs

thats quite insane for someone like me who normally doesnt study more than an hour and a half on a normal school day. studying at home is good and bad.. the only distractions i have are the com, tv, bed and guitar. but i suddenly feel really deprived of interacting with friends (even though that will be the hindrance to my revision haha).

and so my index finger nail has grown back, 3 more to go. achieving perfection in playing is really hard.. i was trying so so hard to play a grade 1/2-ish study without any mistakes from beginning to end, and it took me like 15 tries to get one of them right. and when i played it again to make sure i didnt make a fluke, i made a mistake again. sianz lah.

the creators of pokemon are geniuses with probability; there is probability everywhere, right from what type of pokemon you meet in the grass, to the probability a pokeball manages to catch a pokemon, to the highly pissing miniscule probability of meeting the two legendary dogs in the wild. but with a bit of patience and cheating using visualboy's save and reload scene i managed to capture raikou, entei, ho-oh and lugia today. muahahaha.

as you can see when studying high level intellectual material, its often therapeutic to do brain dead stuff during the 1 or 1/2h breaks. such as watching spongebob haha.

the case study of george soros was quite interesting, being able to make USD 1 billion out of the crash of the british currency about 17 years ago. took me a while to understand how he did it.. but it shows how people with not so good values can have incredible intelligence.

and can someone please put me out of my misery by telling me the solution to this math question. we have a guy, a forgetful guy. lets call him Retard. the probability that Retard leaves his umbrella in any shop he visits is 1/3. after visiting two shops in succession, he finds he has left his umbrella in one of them. can someone please tell me why the probablity that he left his umbrella in the 2nd shop is 2/5?!?!?
