      The one time I ate brownies, my conscious, thinking part lost control of the left side of my body. I was still able to move but it was more like I was telling it what to do rather than controlling it directly. I also thought at the time that I might have been hallucinating because a friend of a friend called around and spent half an hour talking about llama farms and insisting that farming llamas was going to be the next big thing. I didn’t care if I was hallucinating since I thought he was hilarious even if it wasn’t really happening. Later my less stoned friends confirmed that’s exactly what had happened and he walked out because he was upset at my constant giggling and guffawing. It didn’t last 30 hours or 48 or anything near that long. I sobered up after four or five hours.

      I’m confused about the college bit - “78% more likely to get into college”? 78% more likely than what? A person of color with the same grade has only a 22% chance? So we’re (yes, I’m white) almost twice as likely as some undefined person to get into college while only 1 in five of PoCs with your grades get into college? Why would those two add up to 100%? Or do you simply mean 78% of students are white whereas according to the census bureau whites comprise 74% of the 15-24 age group? The biggest issue is the lack of opportunities for those in low income areas and families to prepare adequately for college, which affects African-Americans and Hispanics disproportionately - and they need extra help, and the preparation has to start early.  Also I hear it’s a lot harder for Asians to get into college with the same grades as some arbitrary white person, but I don’t have statistics on that so I’m not going to make something up.

      Well, the two software engineering questions were pretty easy, although the clock one requires a follow up question, “can we assume it’s a mechanical clock?” Since the angle will depend on the gearing we would either need to take the clock apart or study it for a while to see how many individual steps the hour hand makes in an hour. If it’s e.g. an LED or computer display there’s no stepping involved so it’s easier to find out even if the calculation is harder.
