Wow I just found out I have a midterm in one of my classes today. I'm not really worried, but it does mean I'll be out of class that much sooner.

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth but supreme beauty -- a beauty cold and austere, like that of a sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trapping of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as in poetry.
-- Bertrand Russell

So I get home from School and my brother has moved my whole DVD player into the other room to watch some movies. I asked him why he moved it when he knew I didn't want anyone moving it. He said "Don't worry about it, it's no big deal." Well it is, when I have a $300 piece of delicate equipment and other people are hauling it around. Anyway, my dad yells at him to take it back in the other room which he does, but promptly decides to plug it in all wrong and then come to me for help. I go downstairs and spend 5 minutes troubleshooting it we find that one of the pins on the S-Video is bent and messing the whole picture up. That's a $20 cable he's messing with, and a $300 DVD player. It's mine, I bought it, and he doesn't know what he's doing with it. That is exactly the reason I don't want anyone moving it. (My parents always want to move it back in the other room)
