Free week

Seems like my attempt failed, so I'll most likely stay behind the computer for the whole week. Just as planned!
On the weekend I may (or may not) travel to meet my "friends" from WoW, but the meeting takes place in a distant city and I could spend more than an hour !! in train, so that kinda sucks. What's worse, one girl from the community contacted me asking if I'm going there, that she would join me in the train, but I don't really want to talk with her. I'm the kind of person who would rather stay alone than be with somebody he doesn't like,so...yeah.

We'll see.

Numbers don't make any sense

Stupid statistics, I spent nearly 3 hours doing some exercises we've got as our homework and all I had to do was just summing and dividing...

We've got spring break this week,yay! I will spend even more time on my PC. I thought about asking my friend out,but I don't think I have the guts as I'm going to be rejected for sure AGAIN. Well, I may try it tomorrow...but I doubt it.

Something else in the news?

I neglected my blog a little bit to the end of the past week, so I'll try to keep it updated from now.

I wonder how many other arabian uprisings will come this year. Tunisia, Egypt...I thought Gaddafi would cut them down strongly (and I was sort of right as he killed a lot of protesters), but it seems he will lose control of Libya too. And I wonder if something is going to change as well, because I don't really believe in these so-called revolutions, aka one tyrant leaves, another replaces him. Well, I'm not sure if I care enough to change my opinion in days to come.


nice tanks you've got there Mubarak, too bad noone stayed to drive them

Wow I'm so happy. I will return home at 2 p.m. instead of 4.30 AND I won't have to learn words for examination either. Oh I think I'm gonna cry.

Today I should write a letter for my (hopefully) future university. They have this rule that if my grades from maths (or physics depending on where I'm applying) are good enough on my high school, I can skip the entrance exams. Grades aren't problem, but my letter-writing skills are quite...dull. But I'm sure they are used to it on maths university. ^^

No changes

As I evaded most of my duties last week, these 5 days won't be much better.  Meh. Still, Thursday remains the worst day evar, so I'm quite calm till Wednesday.

The weekend was cool though, evening at the pub haven't gone exactly as I had planned, but it was ok...I guess? I played some Starcraft over Saturday, got drafted into silver 2v2 with my noob terran friend -> success! and... that would be everything worth of notice.

Computer winning game shows

Some computer AI program called "Watson" created by IBM won Jeopardy! againts its most successful contestants. And WITHOUT connection to the internet, well I'm REALLY amazed.
What the hell is amazing about that? The biggest problem of AI bots is the fact that they can't answer naturally and that the human has to lead the conversation. I'm really not surprised that a computer can answer nearly every factual question without problems as the information can be easily stored in a database. However, human brain doesn't have (nearly) endless capacity as a computer database, nor can we search in them as quickly.

guess who won

I would, however, be very surprised if a bot could act as naturally as a human. There is this cool thing called Turing test whichrevolves about telling whether the person I'm talking to is a human or a chat bot. As far as I know, there is no bot which (definitely) passed the Turing test so far, but it's also a subject to discussion whether it is or isn't fair test.

Man, do I hate school from 7 a.m. to 16.30 p.m. having the worst subjects (3 lessons of physics, German language, 2 lessons of English conversation...) with a danger of being examined from any of them.
However! I had avoided most of my duties yesterday and wasn't examined so I call it a clever and successful move. Nice.

My friend promised me that she will (finally) decide today where is she going to go for her university studies and I'm quite sure she won't decide until the next week. As the deadline to apply on most universities in Czech Republic is the end of February, she should better decide quickly.

Anddddd I think I will play some BGs and then SC2, as there is nothing to learn for tommorow (except maths, but that is not a problem).
