I don’t know if it’s the walking, the fish oil, the junk food, or what. Frankly, I don’t understand much of anything anymore.
I sat the Putnam exam yesterday. That’s the correct way to put it too, because I didn’t get any points. The one question I answered turned out to have a massive flaw where I assumed 1^(1/n) = 1, which comes from a lack of experience with complex numbers.
So that sucked. Apparently this year’s was pretty tough. Probably I should have tried an easier competition first, but there was a lot of free food and coffee so I thought why the hell not?
