Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader

Posted by Mithrandir, 06 September 2007 - - - - - - · 194 views

So I visited with my parents tonight, and they put on a new television gameshow called "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?". The premise is that they find some guy/gal, and put them up against 10 questions that a 5th grader is expected to know.

Sounds easy enough, right? I can safely say that yes, I am smarter than a 5th grader. Most of the questions...

My GDNet+ should be running out within the next month or so, so you won't have much longer to appreciate my nonsensical ramblings. That's alright though, I've almost run out of things to say.

I've come to a conclusion today.

Software Engineering is the art of showing your boss how to do something the right way, without making his idea seem stupid.

While we could do it...

I just paid off my car loan, 3 years early. Check hasn't cleared yet, but I'm hoping there won't be any problems there. Capital One's "payoff quote" is good for 10 days, but they said the check would take 20 days to clear for some dumb reason (out of state), I'm hoping that doesn't cause a problem.

I got another promotion at work yesterday. My third promotion since last August now, and I am now officially a Software Architect. I've been putting in 90 hour weeks lately, trying to get some R&D projects in presentable form so we can present them to our customers tomorrow.

It's damned stressful, and unfortunately, my Wii isn't helping much.

I admit it. I used to be a linux geek. Back in college, it seemed right to "fight the system" and be a rebel. I installed Linux on my computer, and subsequently accomplished nothing else.

A year later, I realised how idiotic it all was and went back to using systems that I didn't have to fight in order to use. This is 10 years ago, now, so I'm sure...
