Too bad it does and is applied to all applications of engineering... which is well... all technology you use.....

Now a history degree.... that has the practical application of... teaching history?

Yes

<--Is an engineer.

Soooo. Since this is a story about boredom I will tell you how my day at work went, to make you feel better about yours.

Today I got a call to go pick someone up because I was driving one of the company's vans.
I pulled up infront of one of the hardest to find and strangest missmatches of a home I have ever seen.
It was this dilapidated old house with peeling plant, And brand new french double open doors and the most overbuilt deck I have ever seen. It was made of 8x10s (with STEEL REINFORCEMENTS) and a ramp I could almost drive up.

I went up and knocked on the door and this little chubby 22yr old answered the door, she had to way about 350 lbs at 5ft 4in tall. She tells me "Oh your hear for my mom & me. Hang on a sec I'll go tell her your here."

10min go by and then I hear this weird series of thuds... It was like the scene in jurassic park were the T-Rex makes it's first appearence. Out of this house comes a woman that could block out the sun....

She was using to of those over the elbow style canes (made of Heavy Square Steel tubing) to walk. It made her look like a mountain gorilla. She was sweating so hard from the effort of walking, her face looked like a waterfall.

She gets to my cab and her daughter brings out this stool made of diamond plate!!! It was rated for 500lbs. I opened the sliding door and folded down the seat so she could sit on it like a bench. She backed up to it, steped on it, and it folded like it was made of wicker....

She fell backwards and landed, sitting, on the floor of my cab. She couldn't get up and out, we couldn't get her in. She was literally stuck in the sliding door of my minivan. I tooke the middle seat out all together and her daughter and I spent 30min pushing/pulling to drag her onto the floor of the cab.

I took her to our local hospital were a hydraulic lift van was waiting to take her to a specialist in california. (They couldn't find her house and called a cab to pick her up, instead of just having us show them where the HOUSE WAS!!! >.<)

It took me, the three large men in the van and her daughter to get her out of the cab and into a wheelchair.
We wheeled her onto their van's hydraulic lift and up she went... about half way up.

The van's hydraulics were almost to weak to lift this woman all the way up, which was really scary for us because if the lift failed while it was 2ft off the ground: there was NO WAY we could get her back down again. Thankfully it got her level with the van and pulled her in without failing. Just barely

So yeah, still feel bad about your boring day Saint?

Wow. You got a carp job.

Mind you, I have at times. At least I get bored when there's absolutely nothing to do (save watching a progress bar move)....

QFT.

People who whine about math, saying it has no practical application, simply fail to realize that their favored subjects of language and history have the wonderful singular practical application of teaching that subject.

On the other hand, find me a single job where you're not going to use math.

Yeah you can't. :p

For the record, I say this even though my favorite subject throughout high school was English, closely followed by German, then History. And none of that is being put to practical use.

It's okay, though, I've discovered the wonderful world of applied mathematics.

Math is fun, it's a fact.
