peter's sassy research

Daily Rant

Right, here I am as promised. It's around eight o'clock; my, how punctual of me!

So, the topic of the rant this time is: I Want to Know Why. Kind of a stupid name for a rant, but that's how it is. If you don't like it, sue me. No, please don't, actually. I own nothing.

Anyway, this rant mostly applies to science and math classes. I've never been a linear thinking person, so that stuff is tough for me. But that's not really the problem. The problem, for me, is that they never explain the simplest (but most complicated) question in those classes. They never answer the question "Why?" to my satisfaction.

I mean, sure, I can understand all that crap about DNA, RNA, chemical reactions, quadratic equations, and things like that. I'm actually very good at memorizing that shit. BUT, what I always want to know is "Why do these things happen the way they do?" Okay, so blah element reacts with so-and-so element to make such-and-such a molecule, but WHY??? Okay, so this one's hydrophobic, this one's hydrophilic, but WHY?????

Why do numbers work the way they do? Why isn't the number 2 called the number Bob or Angel or something? If it was, why would it be? Is there ever a good reason? Jeez, who NAMES these things????

Why should I try to figure out what x equals?? I don't want to be a bloody mathematician! Why does our WHOLE DAMN SOCIETY put such importance into the value of x??

Wow, this really IS a rant. It's the science ones that bother me the most. I really want to know why elements react the way they do, and not in confusing, scientific terms that, frankly, mean nothing to me. Are they interacting with particles from other universes? Do they have personalities and hierarchies we know nothing about? No science teacher has ever given me an answer that made me happy, and they refuse to say "I don't know."

Gah. I'll just stick with English, which I get as long as I'm patient enough to edit my work.
