It depends on what type of shape you are trying to find the area. If it is a rectangle, you do base times height. For triangles, you do base times height divided by two. For a circle, it is Pi*R^2. And I find topical maps very important from earth science.

Come on now. I'm up for learning, but I like to learn from someone with more skill.

This may sound crazy, but I learned Photoshop from a Belgian martial artist in med school and an African communications major. Time I took their skills, they started sucking at it and I got better. Even the girl I'm describing is like, "How did you get the red out of my eyes?". I met both people in college.


But, before I get too far off-topic:

What if you met Osama Bin Laden in college and he was anti social, with an inferiority complex, and only cared about physics?
You by past them however they started you off.

But if they weren't good, they couldn't really teach me what I needed to get to such a level.

They also were not into telling other people they couldn't have any more kids, while they had problems controlling how much of a substance they consumed, injected, or smoked.

You just don't get it.

It doesn't sound crazy at all.

I still think trying to control other people's lives/reproductive organs, while you can't control how much of a substance you use is mighty ironic.
Granted, we cannot control others because we cannot control ourselves.

That doesn't mean that humans don't have opinions.

National Socialism as espoused by the NSALP has many good points, in addition to many bad ones. Should I discard ALL of their ideas, or just the ones that don't suit me?

I'm not going to tell you how to think, but when I see a flaw I'll exploit it.

So all learning of necessity has to be positive learning?

Hmmm what about this....You have an idiot teacher who can't teach his butt from his foot. You feel you learned nothing from him. Yet you did, some how there was a loop hole and he got through. He makes good money. Tax payers pay for him to teach nothing. He out witted the system. Though he obviously has no conscious.
