Well, I'm not dead . . . just a Ghost in the Machine.

This is some strange cross between pseudocode and python and it's making me sad and happy accordingly.

Is this better?

import math

sex = input("Enter the quality of your character ('h' for decent human, 'r' for rapist): ")

exams = 10
alcohol = 7
plotted_plants = 10**20

if sex == 'h':
    college_debt = ((3/2)*exams + math.sqrt(alcohol)) * math.pi ** plotted_plants
    print(college_debt)
elif sex == 'r':
    college = False
    jail = True
    print("You might want to reconsider your life choices . . . also, don't drop the soap . . .")

No error handling.

Yes, but it's still good practice to use them consistently unless you have a really good reason to not. Especially because boolean resolution will resolve the first case to True.

btw Python is the best. I wish I could use it all of the time.

I thought you were going for biology and physics (I think) and that comp science was an extra thing you were doing on the side?

Well, you know how the old flippant saying goes:

for d in day:
     if d.index('y') == len(d) - 1:

I graduated with a degree in Biology and I'm doing a second (abbreviated) bachelor's in computer science now. It's a cool program, 20 months + any internships you get and you get a full bachelor's degree, but you can't enroll unless you already have one.

The program has been excellent and I've managed to snag some pretty plum internships largely because the teaching has been super exceptional.

Ah, cool. Is your plan to use both degrees once graduated then, or has your focus just sort of shifted as time went on?

It would be cool to work for a medical startup at some point, but I want to get super good first and I'm not sure it will ever happen. Mostly, I just realized that I'd probably be a below average med student and average-ish doctor and I could be relatively better in computer science... and it's super fun. I never wanted to do research or grad-school so there weren't any other career options in bio.

Agreed that it's fun and the west coast is pretty hot job wise right now. Since you've got internships you're pretty much golden as well, so it's not a bad call at all.

Yeah, my first will be in Vancouver, and my second will be in California, and then after that, I'll finally finish school. I'll be turning 26 when I finally graduate... that's technically enough time to have gotten a PhD :/

Obviously my spelling is my most attractive feature Thank you, and a double degree is nothing to scoff at either!

PhD's aren't always as good as advertised, a engineer is often better off with a Masters instead (Unless they're interested in research, that is).

Engineers are weird. In most fields, a PhD is definitely more attractive. Especially if you want to do data science right now.

Depends, it's all about if the employer believes they need a PhD level employee. They don't want to pay a PhD more to do a job a Masters would do for less (The cynicism is real).

Definitely true. I totally mis-spoke. There's a TON of data science jobs, even for skilled people with no education at all, because companies are desperate. I was speaking more about the really exciting ones like Brain, Deepmind, OpenAI and Facebook. Even Facebook Data Science INTERNS have PhDs now (I looked into trying to do a partially software partially data science internship but they said no).

I'm using a regular computer, it just doesn't have Zip openers and I'm borrowing it for writing and schoolwork, so I don't want to download things on it simply because that's not something you just do on a guy's computer.

You guys sure you're talking about zip folders? Because that's been a native part of windows since 7.

Though you could be using linux or something I suppose.

Doesn't come on older apple computers either (older as in <2013), I think.

It's one of the most harmless things you can download though, really. You'd be doing the guy a favour at that point.

At this point, it looks like things won't start here till after the holidays.

I should have regular internet back before then, but will be busy throughout.

Following new years though, I will be ready to start disciples back up. :)

On another note, my cat died a few days ago. He was a smart farker. Pretty sure he spoke dog. I've been celebrating his life with lots of bourbon.
