When I was at school in the early 1970's we spent weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks learning about log table, I remember thinking at the time, what fecking use are these going to be to me when I leave school and I was right, it was a total waste of time, when we could have been learning about about mortgages, coping with a divorce, maintenance payments etc. Much like this video, very complicated and the amount of use to the average man uuuum fecking zero.
