Anyone know what's up with all the noisy aircraft that seem to be crossing over the campus this morning? It's making a lot of noise and drowning out people's voices in class. Are they all just flying really low for some reason? o_O

earlier this evening, two friends and i were sitting on a bench by bagley when a middle-aged black man approached us. he was out of breath and quickly expained that he was a uw janitor and his car was being towed, he needed $14 to cover the cost for them not to take it. i've always said no to anyone who has asked me for money, but he was offering to leave his uw id or shoes just to get the extra dollars and seemed honest enough. i decided for once to have a little faith in our society and humanity, so my friends and i gave him $15 that he was looking for. he ran off and never came back. after bad luck with jobs this summer i had ironically skipped dinner to save some money but $10 of our donation was from me, only to have it stolen.

later this evening, one of my friends who was there gave me a calling saying that it had happened to other students around campus as well.

just wanted to send out the warning, save yourself a few dollars and don't fall for it.

books

For CHEM 142, the study guide that goes with Zumdahl's Chemical Principles is listed as optional on the booklist. For anyone who has taken Chem 142, can you please tell me if the study guide is a good investment or if it's not really needed? Thanks!

Books continued...

And also, the student solutions manual for Stewart's Calculus Early Transcendentals is listed as an optional book for MATH 124. So is it a useful book to have for MATH 124? Thanks, again!

(sorry, I just forgot to ask this question in my previous post...)
