I make comics, and I've been considering posting them on FJ for a while, because they aren't getting a lot of attention on my deviantART. I'm seeing what the reception of them is here before I post more.
As part of my apprenticeship (training for my current IT Technician job), we had to prove our mathematical ability for the coursework, despite our GCSEs (and in some cases, A-Levels) in maths. Our teacher decided to make this a class exercise, and had us come up to the board, one by one, and solve some simple math problems in front of the class. It had been a few years since my GCSEs, and I had long resorted to either using my fingers or simply not using math. The pressure of the class watching me caused me to take an embarrassing amount of time to solve the questions. My classmates helpfully shouted out incorrect answers as I tried to think. Glorious bastards, I miss them.
