    Another fun fact: Horses are resistant to nerve agent. This was proven during the Dugway Sheep Incident when a cloud of VX was released over a wide area. A ton of sheep died, but horses weren't really affected. 

    And now the explanation that @RorzNZ would give (tagging works now!): Nerve agent works by inhibiting an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase, which breaks down acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Horses have two variants of acetylcholinesterase, only one of which is affected by nerve agent.

    Everyone is asking out their crush on Valentines day. Meanwhile, if I asked out my crush, she'd probably think I'm creepy and want nothing to do with me. We aren't friends enough for it to be appropriate, but she's always being rushed around by her friends and family so I don't really get the chance to even conversate with her. I just have to wait for the right moment to break the ice. I've had a few of those moments now, but my anxiety gets the best of me and I just end up looking like a nervous fool. But I think, despite the fact that she's a 12/10 and I'm a 4/10, there's a chance. Idk why I think that, but it's my gut feeling. Just gotta let time do its thing I suppose. 
     
    But this Valentines day, I at least get to still have fun. I take delivery of the new Nord Piano 4 for my one church today. Too bad I don't know how to play tho..

    The second choice:
     
    Today I stopped by breifly to see my academic advisor to look at new majors. This wasn't to actually pick a new major, it was a 10-minute session to see if switching to EE is viable.
     
    Bad news: not really. The degree is structured at our school such that EE majors start taking their 200 level classes Sophomore year, and the 300 and 400 level classes their junior year, with their capstone project their senior year. Meaning the only way for me to get an EE degree at this rate would be to pay SIUCs tuition out of pocket for a year. I could not just "go light" and take a couple of hard math and physics classes at a community college for a year while working. Taking out student loans would be the only way to go here.
     
    But it's not all bad news. There is another choice:
     
    SIUe (SIUs satellite campus only 20 miles from saint Louis) has industrial engineering as a degree. Its kind of a business and engineering degree mixed, and it has a lower salary than a straight EE degree, but a much higher starting salary than my current major. In fact because of my current classes, my senior capstone project is already marked as "completed" in degree works. It would also require no additional years of schooling for me, as long as I knocked out a 100 level physiology and anthropology class this summer instead of getting an internship.
     
    After doing some research, industrial engineers typically work as managers in factories, or in logistics/supply chain management. Some can even work in finance, or even technical work with the right certifications. I also found out Disney world is one of the largest employers in the united states of industrial engineers because they need people who can optimize lines on rides and crowds. Never would have known that. 
     
    Industrial engineers also learn business and management skills, so these could come in handy if I ever do choose to go the business route.
     
    I will be visiting my academic advisor again in a couple of weeks to schedule summer classes, but I am glad to get a degree that isn't (from my view) totally useless now.
     
    the big "push" for me is the fact that I will FINALLY live near a city! I can do stuff like attend meetups, visit scrapyards, and join in hackathons. All stuff I could never do at SIUC.

    Dafuq, there isn't 2FA for my SwissPass on the website. For those of you who don't know: Switzerlands railway company that serves over 80% of all the public Transport in Switzerland is called SBB (in German: Schweizerische Bundes Bahnen) and their SwissPass which is an ID and holds all the tickets you buy online (it's like a metro card). I of course as a Swiss Citizen and as an daily commuter have one of these. And what I just noticed as I refreshed my ticket is that they don't have two factor authentication on their Website which baffles me because it's an ID and it holds sensible information (which can ofc can be accessed though the login on the Website) and IDs are really atractive things to thiefs to steal and Identitiy theft is a problem here.

    I'm starting to learn Mandarin Chinese and just found a great joke.
    First five numbers in Chinese:

    (Note that the first three are lines, with 1 line for one, 2 for two, and 3 for three. It seems like it could continue, but the later numbers are unrelated.)
     
    One day, a little kid was learning to write. He learned the first three numbers and thought "That was easy, I know how to write any number now!"
    Soon after this, his dad wanted him to write down some numbers and said to the kid "Please write down ten thousand."
    The kid was there for a while.

    THIS is why I can't decide to switch majors or not:
     

     
    Right now, I am 4/5 done with my major. To go back and redo the classes required for a formal Electrical Engineering degree would require me to basically start over. I would be back to only being done with ~25% of my degree. In fact as I continue to do research, all the classes I am currently taking this semester are essentially useless for an EE degree. I could just drop out of school right now if my decision was to switch to EE, and have to start over.
     
    Because I had some classes that transferred from UofM, I am really more of a first semester Senior than a sophomore. Very few people decide to entirely switch majors senior year for something completely different.
