While instructors have varying ability to make a subject fun, exhilarating, deathy dull, or absolute agony, the fact will always be that different people find different things fun.  As a born engineer, I usually found math class to be great fun as did all the other members of my high school's math team.  OTOH, gym class was generally agony until I got to high school where you could pick the sport (I'm rather good at swimming, badmitton, and volleyball).

As Mr. Knightley says in Emma: "If the Westons think it worth while to be at all this trouble for a few hours of noisy entertainment I have nothing to say against it, but that they shall not choose pleasures for me."

@Betajet: What's the gender-neutral term for that?

Hmmm, I suppose Cow Poop is female, and Bull Shit is male ... how about Bovine Droppings? (but it does lose some of the flavor LOL)

@krisi: Engineering is becoming a lousy profession...long hours, lots of stress...

But the main thing is that you are having fun and keeping your sense of humor LOL
