Both groups spent as much time as possible avoiding the actual subject of accounting, leading me to believe that it will go down in history as one of the most boring conversation topics on the planet. Seeing that I plan on being a cat lady one day, I'll need to remember of much of this as possible. I'm pretty sure cat ladies are forbidden from being good conversationalists, so I will need to be able to swiftly transition from talk of direct labor and direct materials to a lecture on estimated factory overhead and how that will affect your net income.

If this is indicative of accounting classes throughout the world, then it's no wonder that the economy is so messed up. We've got people dealing with money who can't do math.

Yet another reason why I'm glad I picked linguistics...

If I ever took an accounting class, I would totally talk about all those things (actually, how bagels are made is kind of fascinating). I hate boring things like numbers.

@Seven: I find it eerily amusing that you can say that after taking your nickname into consideration.

Back on topic, some of the things my professor has covered in my multi-variable calculus class include how overweight he is, how difficult it is being a man with long hair (as evidenced by yesterday's lecture), and the nature of cell phones to ring at the most inopportune times. It's hard to tell whether this trumps your accounting class, though.

Don't forget to mention the schematic paradigm for gross profit margins and how it effects the structuralist approach toward field unification.
