SoP-- I drift in and out of here and just want to confirm-- you say "Maths" instead of "Math" because you're foreign, right? Sort of like them funny Brits say Lorry when they mean Truck?

When I forgot math my salary increased by 30%. Once I forget the rest of this computer science my salary is going to triple.
