Why does technology hate me?

So I have some statistics homework, involving a seemingly innocuous 10x2 matrix. But surprise! When you try to do some exponential operations on it (ah, exponential distribution, why must you decay so fast?), you get the overflow error in both Matlab and Excel. Damn! If Matlab can invert a gazillion entry matrix, why can't it deal with my puny one? The answer: this problem was never meant to see the light of day. At least, not the light of my day.

Like, omg, you fiend. You have succumbed to the pressures of teenage america. Welcome, my friend, welcome.


Soon you'll have a myspace. I'd have to kill you if that happens.

Love!

Figures I would bow to teenage peer pressure when I'm 22. I blame people like you, Jessie.

Double Love!!!
