    Sorry but General Relativity is not "common currency for school children".
    They may get a qualitative description of special relativity and a discovery
    channel type description of black holes, but they do _not_ get the math that
    is needed to really understand it. More than a few dozen people can do the
    math these days, but it's not a huge number.

    By the way, calculus being a university subject was relatively
    recent--differential calculus was taught in many high schools in the early
    part of the century, then when it turned out that little junior couldn't
    handle it, instead of simply admitting that little junior wasn't smart
    enough, the schools did the egalitarian thing and stopped teaching it. Now,
    praise the Lord, it seems to be coming back.

    Do you seriously expect anyone to believe these fairy tales of yours?

    I don't but then again your opinion does not seem to count much around
    here.
    Wrong again.
    Having just has pictures accepted by a newspaper yesterday and having
    sold additional sets from a professional engagement last week and
    another professional booking this week, where again I will not be using
    burst modes I KNOW you are wrong.

    You really do need to get a life outside this NG and try reality

    Who said it was local? I didn't
    That may be your experience but it also shows you are not a pro
    photographer. At least not a successful one.
    You have no pro compatriots.
    Really? where would you be forwarding it to then?

    Lots of talk nothing to back it up

    Remember that other kook who used to post links to other people's photos
    & pass them off as his own?

    "No".

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

  13. I'm forever amazed at these pissing contests. We all come here
    with passions in common, and end up flailing at each other over
    trivia of execution.

    Output matters. How one gets there rarely does. I shoot what I
    shoot, the way I shoot it, because it gets me where I want to go.
    Someone else's technique may be interesting, even informative, and
    probably worth trying. Maybe worth learning. But to piss in
    someone's ear over a difference in technique?

    Really?

  18. Not just differential calculus. I was taught both differential and
    integral calculus at age 15 (in Scotland in 1956), and not just how to
    do it. We were required to understand it well well enough to be able
    to prove from first principles the basic theorems behind
    differentiation and integration.

    Nowadays the first year of university mathematics has to be taken up
    covering the ground that used to be covered in school, plus revising
    the stuff that has been done in school, but badly.
