    Call me a dork, nerd all you want, but I love the feeling you get when you spend 2 hours, or even days in some of my cases, and you finally get the right answer?
    Just spent a whole afternoon on a Linear Algebra question, and finally got it...granted not a Sunday well spent, but I'm feeling top of the world right now.

    Yeah I know that feeling.

    It usually comes up with any sort of math or physics in my case.

    What was the question, I enjoy linear algebra.

    And I do love the feeling when a problem or proof finally clicks.

    or that feeling you get when you realize you never have to take another actual math again. hard to beat that.

    Actually I get that too, it's a constant cycle of "Goddamn this is hard! WTF!"-->"YEAH!!! SWEET, I got it!"-->"Awww S***, another one..."

    Linear algebra

    <my head> EDIT: it got squished so I added the dots to keep it right :)

    Notice the linear algebra well over my head.
    I didn't even like calc. Though, understanding derivatives made my life much easier in the long run.

    Hard day's night

    I just love the feel of knowing that all your efforts were not in vain. I've been known to waste hours on a project that ended up going nowhere (usually, this refers to my vain efforts to figure out how to do my taxes). I once had a difficult medical case (it was a practice case) that took me the better part of a day to figure out but once I did, I felt great.

    Here is a math problem for you. A riddle if you will:

    Does there exist a simple graph with five vertices of these degrees? If so, draw such a graph.

    a) 3, 3, 3, 3, 2
    b) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    c) 1, 2, 3, 4, 4
    d) 3, 4, 3, 4, 3
    e) 0, 1, 2, 2, 3
    f) 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
