### Re: Logical fallacies/douchebaggery in commercials.

I just caught this one and had to share. *Very monotone voice* "I should be jumping up and down. I should be yelling. I should be holding balloons, to show you how important the 2010 Grand Caravan year end event is. But then, like you, I'd want to punch me." I found it amusing that it refe...

### Potentially silly, very basic beginner's Matlab question...

Hello! To make a long story short, I'm quite new to this, and I'm trying to wrap my brain around finding the appropriate domain in Matlab. The professor handed us a problem and told us to keep replotting until we could find one clear period of a function: f(x) = 120*sin(120*pi*x) And told us to just...

I actually felt the need to change stylists when I cut my hair short.

However, the new place I went to is just as ...

That wall cost me three dollars to go up. It was in a Dick's sporting good store. Adults are five dollars, but if you have the rewards card you get a discount.

This was the first time I've ever been in one of their stores, and it was huge. I don't know if all branches have rock walls.
