well, you don't panic because it is a pretty damn failsafe contraceptive, which is why i got it. and my obgyn did say that if i am among the lucky ones, i do have to get a pregnancy test the first time it stops, just to be sure, as the rare, rare iuc pregnancy is quite possibly ectopic.

See, I was good at maths. I just found it intolerably boring. Especially doing 20,000 textbook questions for the same fucking formula. Yes, I got it nailed by about the fifth question, thanks.

It'd be cool if we could push on to a new thread while you're here though, so that you can make one.

i was actually put off by maths really early by a teacher who degraded you and shouted at you if you didnt get it right, which made me fake being sick to stay home and avoid maths then i missed more maths and sucked more at it .

you can if it's set really low. You wake up soon enough in a pile of sweat if you forget to turn it down

On that lovely note, I'm going to make my tea.

I liked most of my maths teachers, and did have an extremely hot tutor for two years.

I was just too thick to ever be great at it, but I did enough to get out of school with whatever amount of maths I needed.

The fuck? Wow, that's bad. I had this one teacher who was the stereotypical stern German and he sucked all the life out of the class, but that was the worst. I got a couple of teachers who genuinely loved mathematics and tried to pass their enthusiasm onto us, but by that point it was too late. My interests were elsewhere and I quit maths - ostensibly everybody was meant to do maths until the end of grade 12, but I found a loophole in the rules and exploited it. I was the only person at the school who ever got out of maths!

Yeah, the one time I accidentally did it, it was on high and I woke up at about 3am thinking I was about to cook myself and the bed. Luckily nothing more than a thick coat of sweat resulted. When I was little, my mother liked to tell a horror story about melting stuff from leaving an electric blanket on ...

Have a good one!
