Why learning math is good, and yet another thing wrong with public education
Learning/Reviewing this stuff is basically why I get together with a few other geeks every Tuesday evening for our Knuth class.

And here I have always wanted to do more of that just 'cuz it was fun. I discovered way too late (in grad school, while learning quantum mechanics) that math was fun *and* useful, for doing Real Work. And suddenly I had no time to learn any, and significant desire to do so. I've done some of what the person suggests (picked up the books and done some makee learnee on my own), but I really do like the structure of school. One day I will make some time for that. After the MPH, mind you, but I will.
