Dang, it was too easy.

I will deed you an egg after I find one tomorrow.

Let the final tally reflect Kickstand +1 / The Coz -1

Regarding Leazar Hall, they added another A because he's such an A-hole.

"Leazar Hall opened in 1912 and served as the campus dining hall until 1971. It was named to enshrine disgraced former staff member and total A-hole Rem Lezar who joined with Pat Dabney to introduce a smokable cocaine product cut with deworming agent to Land-Grant colleges which created the "North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts" or, as it is known now, "NC State Shit". In 2006, the building underwent a total interior renovation. This renovation included the addition of a boat dry-dock as well as a pre-law area where students can research the various ways to unsuccessfully sue people."

I have no idea why these random pieces of information stick in my head. It's been almost 14 years since I graduated, and I only used that computer lab maybe 2 times.

I'm just quoting from the link describing the history of the building. You should sue the school and your supposed former employer. And since it's a state school, maybe you could even sue King Kooper.

Damn, I almost forgot about E115. I remember I could barely understand the instructor. I remember building a trebuchet for E101.

Did we have E115 together? It was a female Indian instructor and it took me a while to understand how she pronounced "zero". She said "gee-oh", and I kept writing the letters G and O. The UNIX command prompt didn't like my input.

^lol. Yes, we did the very first day before they split the class in half and it became an every other week kinda thing. Ben was in there as well. I remember the first class she started talking and everyone just started looking at each other confused.

The same thing happened in my economics class a few years later. Indian instructor no one could understand.

Yo I took Fortran and E115 in Leazar too! Then afterwards I taught Fortran in Leazar for two semesters before they moved us to Daniels for the rest of my time at NCSU. That was a long walk back to Bragaw.

I told you the arrangement and posted the same in the official egg comment thread. Subtract an egg from my tally and add it to yours.

Some Indians (from certain regions) use the soft g sound for z because that's how it is in their own language.

Quote :
"referred to "zero" as "zed""


You mean the name of the letter z as zed instead of as zee. That's the original (British) name of the letter and most of Africa and Asia (and I believe mainland Europe) still says "zed", though things have been changing for the last some number of years due to American movies and culture becoming widespread.

[Edited on April 3, 2021 at 2:56 AM. Reason : zero is not zed. zero is zero, null, nought, or O.]

Thank you for the education. I wasn't being critical, but it was hard for me to take notes and enter code until I understood this persistent attribute of her accent. Then I adapted, no big deal.

I think she actually said the string "gee-oh-oh-two" or something similar. I wrote or logged "G002", but the correct string was "0O2". I don't think I have that quite right, but trust me that it was confusing for a freshman in their first class, particularly when exact character entry on the command line was required to get the desired or predicted output.

You are welcome! Oh I didn't think you were... just clarifying why/what she would have been saying.

Quote :

Yup, it checks out: "gee-oh-oh-two" = 0 (geeoh) - O (oh) - 2 (two). The zero pronounced as "gee(r)oh" (the r gets eaten up I suppose!) is what causes the main confusion

Correct. Leazar Hall. There were two buildings until they tore down Harrelson a few years ago.

Why are you all so dumb? You think there is only 1 building at nc state (ha ha you must be dorks that never went to the football and basketball arenas and cafeterias, that’s like 7 buildings) and you also thought 4 was a day of the week and you can ride bikes on a 20 foot pontoon boat . Did you even go to Stat?

^^Those are all in the same building. Clearly you never went to Stat.

And no you can't count the free expression tunnel. It may have a "roof" but it only has walls on two sides.
