    The Advice Thread

    Offer your advice on anything. Simply state helpful advice that you know of for whatever you like! It can be as simple or as complex as you want, you never know, you might learn something! Or maybe remember something better!
    I reckon this thread is going to die a painful death.
    I'll start with two mathematical pieces of advice:

    -BODMAS (Brackets Over Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction)
    Incredibly basic, got told it absolutely years ago about how to remember what operation to do first.

    -SOHCAHTOA (Sin(x) = Opposite / Hypotenuse, Cos(x) = Adjacent / Hypotenuse, Tan(x) = Opposite / Adjacent)
    This is a useful acronym to help you remember trigonometry!

    If only I had that for my trig test. Its very useful!

    Anyway I got a question. Why do teen relationships rely so much on physical connection more than emotional?

    Hahaha we got taught SOHCAHTOA as well. Really useful but I still suck at all that stuff

    Advice huh? I can't really give advice like how you want us too xD.

    I'm very good at giving advice on specific things and if I know the person better.

    EDIT- Teenage relationships rely more on physical because most of the time they don't value the opposite sex for what they say they do. I can't really say anyone my age really experienced love or something like that. I went out with a girl with very little emotional feelings for her. It was mainly the physical portion of it (making out and the sort). I regret it but that's probably how a lot of the relationships work.

    It just annoys me when relationships are solely based on physical contact. (no offense of course) So this is why I have made a decision to be prude. Don't wanna deal with all that crap till I'm ready and I just want a girl to care about me, not think I'm hot.

    OK, how about some career advice?

    This is more for a grads and people moving on into the professional workforce.

    Make every attempt to do something you really enjoy - a *significant* amount of your time is spent AT work, driving home FROM work, thinking ABOUT work.

    I've seen many people follow the almighty dollar because they're fixated on material gain and seen just as many be miserable with their life. Also the folks with real enthusiasm tend to hang tough during the bad/downtimes (i.e., see the Internet Bubble) - commitment and zeal will help you weather the storms all industries face.

    I seriously believe in "Business Karma" - always play things straight - if you do, the long term positive career/business return will be much more than some short term gain from doing the wrong thing.

    Learn about the things that are peripheral to your industry - communication, social skills - learn to understand things about the PEOPLE who populate your business environment. Be credible, friendly but never take any BS.

    When you're young, don't be afraid to change gears, do a 180 and try something completely different. (Though I'm not suggesting you put yourself in financial danger, especially if you have family). A buddy of mine with a couple of CCIE's recently bailed out if the IT game and opened a [Corvette] Tuning Shop!

    If you have the entrepreneurial bug, don't be scared to go at it on your own - it's scary and exhilarating! Plus there are few things more satisfying than generating business/revenues on your own - and for just +you+.

    Easy way to test if ANY infa-red remote is working or not.

    Use the camera on your phone and look at the end of the remote with it, then press on the remote.

    If it is working, you will see a bright blue and white light emit from the remote.

    Try it now! Impress your friends!

    This can surely be encapsulated by the old phrase:

    BODMAS? I've always used BIDMAS - Brackets, Indices, Division, Multiplication, Add, Subtract.

    Enoch was right.

    Doesn't matter. Some people learn BIDMAS and some learn BODMAS.
