Have and my head is spinning. Perhaps two fingers of scotch are in order. How many moles of scotch to how many moles of water do ya think?  For someone who really believed there were people who skinned moles to make moleskin you can see this is going to be challenging for me. 

 

They DON'T? Then where do they get it?

 

O.o

Oh my god - there are two of you in the world?

 Now there are fewer moles in my scotch because many of them are splattered on my screen.  Now I will have to spend the whole night recalculating the molecular weight of my drink. Sheesh.

I'll take a first look at the forum on Thurs or Friday. When I started college I fully intended to become a math teacher. I sort of got sidetracked along the way, but I'd still be glad to offer some assistance with formulas and computations and the like.

Yes, but how many moles could a Scotsman scotch if a Scotsman could scotch moles?

 

(And cook them, too, sous vide. See, now this post relates to food.)

I know there's a discussion forum associated with the class, but I thought it was clunky and difficult to follow the first time around. I wonder whether a discussion topic here would help us all. What do you think?

 

The EdX forums are awful.  I would love to have a topic here!
