Yale has put out courses as MP3s, those I listen to when I drive.
You need to make sure though they all have the same volume, some are simply not loud enough.
There is freeware that can do that. [/quote]
Are these the lectures from Open Yale Courses or another source?
Asking because I’m looking to expand my audio-library.
Yeah, I think its that.
This is serious quality, I am working through their history lessons now.
Okay serious question.
Is this a passing interest or hobby?
My life is 10 feet deep of drama and alligators with work and running a business, my spare time is spent on wife and lifting.
Maybe I suck but I spent my time thinking how to make my company money and growing. [/quote]
Because I think all the fucking time, my brain just wont stop.
So, if I do that, I think about other things.[/quote]
Mine does also, but I just figure to use it to make me money.
Plus my commute is used to catch up with up with all my job sites.[/quote]
Ah, you want to know why I dont think about something useful?
First because its boring, but also because useful is a broad concept.
Ideas have shapes and if you recognize the shape you suddenly discover that an ancient battle formation, or more precisely the idea behind it, is something you can use.
Homeostasis is the same as cybernetic, the welfare state is the idea of the perfectability of mankind, which is an ancient religious idea and so further and so on.
If you get an idea, a feel, for the shape, you recognize it even if it comes in a different costume.
That is very useful if you want to know whats going on.
