You realize that you might have to back up and start going full on college lecture mode. They probably don’t understand what the difference is between an integer and a natural number, only to realize your family probably doesn’t know what algorithmic complexity is, only to then realize that cousin Jeffrey looked real confused when you mentioned prime factorization and went over that formal definition for that as well.

Inevitably, your mother commented, “So when do you get to the part with the math and the numbers?”

It didn’t catch, what do you do?

Try Something else

Give up, probably not worth it

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
