This is an exam week...

This is an exam week. I am supposed to utilize the whole week to study and yes i do study and work my ass off on those lecture notes and wikipedia. FYI, i use wikipedia a lot in my studies because i can easily and quickly get the infos about certain things...and of course friendster & youtube sometimes help me while studying too.

One down. 4 more to go. I am not complaining for having 5 papers and also i am not complaining for finishing them off relatively late. I am having my good time studying slowly and steadily.

What's so cool about this month? Well, firsly the exam is finishing soon and therefor i will have more time to spend with my beloved deng. Secondly, 3 of my family members are celebrating their birthdays this month; Kumat aka angah, Kupik aka budak-yg-lahir-last and Mama aka mother. I never tell my family members' about this blog; therefore they dont know that i am wishing them here. So to all of them, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!...i am so gonna call them tonite...

Just an announcement here, CARAMEL POPCORN IS SOO BLOODY AWESOME AND ALL OF YOU SHOULD BUY THEM AND EAT THEM AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BECAUSE YOU WILL EVENTUALLY REALIZE THAT THEY ARE SO CORNYLICIOUS!! Yes i am so addicted to them lately.

Another thing that i want to tell you is, Mr Fellenius was the person who published a solution to a slope stability analysis, one of the classic geotechnical problem. However his method was a simplistic approach which could lead to underestimation of the factor of safety for a slope. Then, Mr Bishop came in and he introduced a better analysis of a slope in which he took account the shear forces that were acting on the sides of a slope segment. That inclusion produced a much more reliable and technically correct analysis of the slope.Lastly, Mr Spencer was the hero. He was a better genious. He took account the resultant forces that act on the sides of the segment. His approach is good but the calculation gets more complicated. Despite its better analysis, Mr Bishop method was good enough and practical for routine analysis. An extra care should be given if the slope is steep. For that case, Spencer's method give the best result....boring~ but i like it!!!!

So guys, gud luck with ur holiday. Have good fun. If u go back to Malaysia, don't forget to buy me the "serbuk asam" that is normally eaten together with jambu batu..pergh!! i am mengidaming that thing so badly. C.h.O.w!
