i know it's just ASU, but still! The program is rated 24th in the country, so that's something.

Gratz! Have fun and work hard (but take some restful breaks as well)!

Awesome! Congratulations, and try not to get Fap on everything!

Oh, so what sorts of engineering things do you wish to do w/ a degree?

Fap's picture

Fap

Well, I want to get a PhD in neuroengineering and work on brain/computer interface for the purpose of delivering sensory input directly to the brain, bypassing sensory organs. So basically, I want to bring about every gritty and awesome cyberpunk fiction I've ever seen, and simultaneously lay the groundwork for the matrix.

edit: no promises vas. they have some mighty fine looking elevators in that building. they're just sitting there looking like elevators, but I can tell they're asking for it.

grats man!...i have a sister that graduated from ASU...im looking to go to UW in about 2 years if everything works out.../crossfingers

Awesome to hear, Fap. I hope it goes well, plus imagine the advances that people could have with a 500Gb or more HDD for their brain to tap into with the speed of an electric current. Languages filled with vocab, geography, science, and the works all on hand. We'd all have the brains of Timelords!

Grats, Fap! That's awesome. If you get your cyberpunk shit sorted out I'm totally in!

I think the best part of that screenshot is that your last name is Hammer. A++
Grats! :D

Definitely hook me up with a mind/machine interface ASAP. Cause then I can build 'copters (Alpha Centauri joke!?).

Fap

thanks everyone! yeah, i can't say that the possibility of being Dr Hammer didn't play into my decision to get a PhD. of course, i may get sick of academia and just open up a brew pub right out of my bachelors. if that's the case, i expect ama to show up on my opening night.

Hey that's great news Fap GL!

Ah, an Ama-gathering at a pub? I may have to break my overall-sober lifestyle for a few rounds! (well, I'll be 21 in 19 days too <.<)

I'm also adding the obligatory, "The hammer is my penis" quote that you should siphon from Captain Hammer. :p (if you haven't already)

I think we need an Ama gathering at a pub regardless of Fap's degree status, it's unfortunate that we're all so spread out!

Hmm...

dude i didnt even think about "DR HAMMER"...all i was thinking about when i saw the email was, 'damn, i wish his name was like marcus christopher or something'...but yea...dr. hammer is pretty fucking A+ for cybernetics...oh and im going to school for digital audio atm...but i might end up just getting some generic audio engineering degree because that sounds stable

sounds awesome! that's definitely a career that would probably be fun, unless you have to be the one to like, correct the audio tracks of days of our lives or something. that would be pretty bad.

I'm giving up on figuring out the Alpha Centauri joke. Is it from a game, or some sort of science-fiction?

Vasya's picture

Vasya

In Alpha Centauri, the game, when you discover the technology "Mind/Machine Interface", one of the things it gives you is the ability to build using the Chopper(Helicopter) chassis.

i call my underwear the vag chassis

Ah, ok. Thanks for the info--it was puzzling and I couldn't randomly find it on my own >.<

I have discovered the penis/vagina interface.

i didn't get a letter lol. I had to log into my account and see the "Congratz" banner.

That's weird. What if you just didn't log in and totally missed out? WHAT IF!?

Fap's picture

Fap

that's not all thats weird about this whole process. the school is so big that they have staggered class registration dates. mine is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7am. i need to take circuits, but in order to do that i need to be enrolled in Dif-Eq. the thing is, Dif-Eq i've heard is reserved for math majors, so I may not be able to register for Dif-Eq until like august, meaning I'll be stuck with a total fuckwit for my circuits professor (there's only one bearable one, and three who are god-awful). Wft.

I think I saw that before. Pretty exciting stuff. Have you seen that video game that works the same way? I can't remember what it's called (since it's like a one-of-a-kind demo of the tech), but you focus on the ball and it bounces, or focus on the cube and it moves forward. I am more interested in sensory information, and delivering it into/recording it from the brain. That way we can finally make that life-long dream of mankind from the 1970's come true: SMELL-O-VISION!!

Also, handjobs over the internet will be way better.

>_>

<_<

I disagree!

Vasya thinks handjobs over the internet are just fine the way they currently are.
