    You are confusing me with Nash. He is the more dashing asian on TNL. I am just a geeky math guy (from actuarial to quant finance).

  3. You're all the same.

    Nice looking tower, the best ones run on cats.

    Dropped some stuff off and got some books at the local thrift.

    There was a small lot of electronics books from about 1940-1945. They tell an interesting story. The owner was Ozell Weeks and he attended the Alabama School of Trades in Gadsden Alabama. It was the first state owned tech school in the south.

    In one book he uses a picture of a sorority president, Miss Nelda Jean Hollis from Brenau College, Gainesville. Ga. (she is from my room mate's home town and the daughter of the doctor at the time)

    More interesting, in a book on reading circuit diagrams, you find this in his hand writing:

    Roosevelt's my shepherd; I shall not want;

    He maketh me lie down on straw mattresses; He leadeth me inside a mess hall;

    He restoreth me to a job.

    He leadeth me in the paths of reforestation For his country's sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of The shadow of poison oak and ivy

    I will fear no evil, for he art with me.

    He prepareth a saw and an axe before me in the Presence of my commanding officer.

    He annointest my mind with discipline.

    My shoes runneth over from marching.

    Surely beans and employment will follow me All the days of the Roosevelt administration

    And I shall dwell in a tent forever.
    This poem is from 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Benning, Georgia

    EDIT: The girl was born in 1925

    There is a report card in one book from june 30, 1946. If he was born about the same time as the girl, they'd both been about 21.

    You are right, all actuaries are the same.

  9. The SOA breaks us and rebuilds us in its image.

    I remain glad that I bailed on the SOA after graduation, despite the fact that I had passed tests. I'm much happier using the same skills and thought processes in a different industry with less morbid subject matter.
