Sacrifice The Goat (Part 3): Endgame

I don't know a lot about car or bike racing, so I figure these are two things I should definitely weave into an analogy.  Drafting: (not forcing people into military service or designing buildings) sticking close to the leader in order to better your own progress.  Aerodynamics  somehow work with windspeed and stuff to make … Continue reading Sacrifice The Goat (Part 3): Endgame

This is a beautifully ironic prompt in so many ways.  First of all, mastering a subject is a ridiculous concept.  Look at me, I am a math master; I know … Continue reading 365: Day 21- Back to School
