    I'm in AP Calculus AB and since we've already taken the AP test, we've been watching the movie A Beautifuly Mind in class the past couple days. But the catch is that we have to write a two page essay answering the question "is John Nash a genius or just crazy?" Personally I think the question is rediculous because being crazy and being a genius are two entirely seperate things; someone can definately be both. anyway, two pages is really nothing compared to other stuff I've done this year for other classes, but the assignment is just really annoying cause my teacher couldnt just let us watch a movie for the sake of watching a movie... we have to bullshit an essay about it. blahhhh... stupid mindless bullshit work... at least theres only like two weeks of high school left, ever! :) :)

    just wanted to rant a little... hope you dont mind :)

    I thought being a genius and being crazy are kind of the same thing... or it's a very thin line... :) Have you ever heard of a normal genius? They're all nuts. It's great. :)

    hehe, a normal genius... good point! geniuses are never normal, they're all crazy, or evil, or something like that. at least all the ones in movies...

    why are you being so sarcastic to me? I've never done anything to you. Theres plenty of threads in the young hippies forum that are a lot more stupid and pointless than mine. why did you pick me to be jerk to? I'm sorry my thread isnt more interesting, I'm sorry it wasnt about anything all that important. if you are just going to make stupid sarcastic comments why dont you keep them to yourself next time. thanks

    this forum exists for fun. it is a place where people can come together and be happy and have fun together. I got a stupid assignment in school so I wanted to share. I hate people like you that have nothing better to do than make an innocent poster feel bad. I was in a good mood so I figured I'd share my little story, and five seconds later I get a response saying to stop whining. I'm sorry I ever posted in the first place cause now I feel bad. fuck you.

    I know what thats like
    If your'e already set for college just don't do the assignment, who gives a shit.
    That movie was a good movie, I like math so that might have made it a little more interesting.
    I live in Rockland county by the way, not too far from Ossining...

    it makes me wonder how someone can get so pissed at someone they dont even see

    Your question is simple, the normal human mind can only process so much, he went insane due to stress and information being witheld from him, if you spend hours doing nothing but math and equations for days on end the mind will tend to go off on ya, brains aint the most perfect of processors it breaks down like a computer it has errors and bugs that sometimes cant be fixed or can be fixed by self repair

    If that were my assignment I'd say he was a genius... wait, I'd not follow the instructions and write an essay off topic about how the two can't be compared and show how Nash fits into both categories.

    It is one of my favorite movies. Though you can really only watch it once...

    this shit is funny
  14. crazy and genius are the exact same thing

    start researching what happens to grunt work cryptographers, the ones who broke entire systems just by brute force (say indigo) genius and insanity are precisly the same thing in some ways......
