If you could learn one thing that you don't know yet, what would it be?

Just for fun I'm thinking about taking some little community courses at a community college in various elective subjects that are way outside my specialty.

If you could do something like that, what sort of subjects would you want to learn? πŸ™‚

I do not know.
It seems to be a vicious cycle.

@Stevil No. I already have that mastered.

Haha. @Donotbelieve. You are clearly a great aspiring Socratic philosopher! πŸ˜‰

@Rhetoric I know, right?

@Stevil SON-IN-LAW told me that one .

Physics but I'd have to learn math too.

1+1 is not necessarily 2.

@Spag84 2+2 is 5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

@RileyStevens I tend to just stick to the basics. Some algebra and geometry.

@RileyStevens so by that mathematical logic. 25.9 mph is actually 26 mph. Do I understand this correctly?

I want to learn how to speak and read Polish. I've been meaning to start looking at online stuff but have not yet gotten around to it, so thanks for the reminder.

@PerbeMayhaps See, this is the stuff mom and dad never sat down and taught me. Who cares how to say "onion"? This is the sort of stuff I need.

@PerbeMayhaps The foundations of any language

How to be more charismatic.

Charisma is the most valuable skill that exists and I am usually a dick head.

I'm an awkward duck most the time too.

But I do hear that Charisma can be practiced and learned... so maybe there's hope. πŸ™‚

@Rhetoric Yeah I try reading up on it, there are different theories but unanimously they agree that you can learn charisma.

I feel like I'd like to start learning math... I love physics, but never understood the math. I'd have to start at basic algebra I'm sure, and then work my way up... I also wouldn't mind learning another language. I've always like German, but Spanish would probably be more practical.

Considering today's business economy , you may want to consider Chinese . I had Algebra I and II , calculus , and trigonometry . Aside from the algebra , I don't think I've used any of the others since graduation .

Id probably benefit the most from a public speaking course but fuck that. Anything to do with art, film, music, photography or cooking probably? Astronomy or local history might be interesting, although I’ve already taken astronomy at my local community college.

How to make a lot of money by doing as little work as possible.

Run for congress.

high-level calculus, or advanced aerospace design

I eked out "c's" in my three calculus courses in college, the only "c's" I ever earned. And they were 4 credit courses too. I stopped short of differential equations. I had only a passing familiarity with the concepts, but I learned how to get computers to run optimizations for me, and that's how I learned APL.

I'd pull an Elon Musk and learn rocket science...

Good way to get one's mind above the clouds. πŸ˜‰

Over the past two years, I took increasingly difficult Spanish classes. Now I speak Spanish like a stroke victim.

"The Geology of North Central Washington" was cancelled by the local community college years ago. Darn.

I love "Nick on the Rocks" from Central Washington University. Geologist Nick Zentner leads viewers on armchair adventures through Washington’s diverse landscapes.
