    At a party and discussing how much a copper over aluminum/ copper head gasket changes compresion ratios when brought up to running temp and if its worth the differance in power flucuation to go with the cheaper one or the more study one. Chicks don't dig stuff like that and give you bewildering looks.

    Remarkably, I had similar lack of success when I started explaining Laplacian formalism halfway into my third cocktail.

    Combine the two! Sometimes it's fun to check what you can say and what you can't hehe... I like to bring up the scientifically proved fact that men cannot listen more than 12 minutos without interruption to a female voice.

    When I cheered and did a victory dance after I successfully completed a java assignment, even though it wasn't a "true" mvc pattern which I should have implemented. ;)

    My friend tried to teach me about polar coordinates after we had been drinking.

    I didn't learn a damn thing, and I still don't need them in AP Calc. It all worked out - except that I got sick that night.

    I always try to hold that back. Even though I am a complete computer nerd, my clothes and appearance don't show it the slightest bit (I may come across as a prep at first glance, and I may act like a prep too).
