While they do beat you over the head with math in the early stages, it gets better, but still, engineering does use a lot of math. If you find math "boring", but can solve it without much trouble, don't worry, it gets better. If you find math difficult however, do something else. Architecture has always sounded fun, but I'm guessing there's still quite a bit of math involved, though perhaps easier than Bessel functions and quasi-viscoelastic stress-tensor transformations.

We already have 3-D hologram projectors, though they are still probably a decade off from being commercially accessible for most. However, full-sensory VR in your living room is currently impossible: we can do sight and sound, but we lag greatly in...
Suggest we change Manton's title to "Something Something Something, Darkside" until he changes his avator. And to J, , but perhaps after a time-period you deem appropriate, unban MM, since he seems to have a few decent people vouching for his character. Anyone can make a mistake and get carried away.

I'm taking the approach of what I would do if I wanted to troll this place without much mental effort. He continually either adopt an extreme position for a topic, and would defend it using nauseatingly circular arguments. The only effort it takes is the commitment to keep at it, which given his posting frequency, easily allows him to hit 3k posts. If one of your trollings starts to stagnant, you could always bring in another account with the opposite extreme position,...

It doesn't make them more things to do, but they aren't necessarily harmful. Stealing and cheating are the two that somebody has to get fucked over. In the case of cheating, you're taking part in a competitive activity, so somebody is going to get fucked over anyway. In this case you're using whatever...
