....Insinuates Paranethesis man from the sidelines

     So anyway, as I've told you all now a million times and counting, I'm applying for an independant study. Today was really the final straw. I asked a simple question:
     "What's the difference between a double and a float argument when being passed to an overloaded function?" (Note: even if this doesn't sound simple it really is something that should be eaisily understood by anyone with programming knowledge in java)
     To which she responded: "Ohhhhhh... You don't even know the difference between a float and a double? You should have learned about that at the beginning..."
     "What?! No, that's not the issue, what's the difference when being passed to an overloaded function?" Really there should be about 20 more minutes of conversation like this, but for brevity's sake I'll keep it to her answer at the end.
     "There is no way to define a difference when you pass a double or a float to an overloaded argument which is why the function is ambiguous."
     "WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST SAY THAT TWENTY MINUTES AGO?!" Anyway, I ended up explaining it to the whole class because Ms. Song can't explain for beans.
     Sorry for ranting on Ms. Song like that, but it's really starting to drive me up a wall. So onto other things I'm doing (aka Anime)! I found out that they're apparently making a Negima! anime show. From the sounds of it, it's going to be based very closely on the Manga, but for some odd reason they chose to make the female protagonist's eyes both different colors... it's rather distressing. Aside from that I watched the first two episodes of Kanon and decided I'm going to buy the series. And I have to ship back that Read or Die DVD and get a new one. Anyway, tht's all for today cause I have to read Catcher in the Rye.

Hey, Kit. This is my first post here... it's really awesome, I was looking at some of your early posts, then I came back and there was a new message up!

Please excuse my idiocy (PEMI)-- I've never been to a blog outside of Strong Sad's before.

Don't you hate it when teachers tell you the answer after many minutes of discussion?... well, actually, I guess you do, since that was the first part of your post

This has been going on too long, so I'll stop it now.

Wow, your teacher reminds me of Ms. Rosen from eighth grade. I was very nice to her until the fourth quarter, at which point I would snap at her if she pissed me off. Happens every year. They always forgive me, too. I'm so awesome. :-D
Urgh, good luck with Hellion Caulfiend. And read my xanga, which is not the same as my blog, because I update my xanga.
