It's Friday and it's 28 C / 82 F and ridiculously humid outside. I'm not happy.

supposed to be 95 here at some point today.

back home in the swamps of louisiana i remember some summers where it would be 105 at 115% humidity (or some shit like that). you would drip with sweat immediately after walking out of the door.

Now it's another couple of degrees warmer. Did I mention this is in a part of the world where AC is virtually unheard of?

double and triple integrals are easy! Its just like doing single, but you do it multiple times. Now, initial value problems, those are annoying.

I think I need a break. Thank heavens it's practically the weekend now.

Well, it's go-live-able, as in "something with which it is still reasonable to go live."

Also translated as: the software is not perfect, but it's workable.

Also also translated as: holy crap, too many business jargony bullshit buzzwords, I need to get out of here.

Screech: in movies and TV shows, whenever there's a traffic jam, there's a constant noise of horns being pressed. These are American movies and TV shows, so I'm curious. When an American finds himself in a traffic jam, does he really sit there banging on his horn the whole time? Because that certainly doesn't happen in old Blighty.

Its exaggerated in movies but in some areas there is excessive honking. Whenever I'm in Washington DC I always notice the aggressive driving and honking all the taxis and other drivers do. I take the metro system so I don't have to deal with that! However, in the areas outside of DC you wont really hear honking to the same degree unless someone really done fucked-up.

tl;dr: Usually people just start breaking rules of the road instead of honking when they get frustrated, and honking is seemingly more noticeable in congested cities than suburbs or rural areas.

I just realized that I used to have recuring nightmares about getting to school without my class schedule and not knowing what class I was supposed to be in. I would spend hours wandering around trying to find my class and often walk into the wrong room. It was terrible.

I almost never hear horns; they're pretty much only used when someone cuts off another person. But, if you want a place where you do hear horns constantly, pretty much any city in India fits the bill.
