Brain Excerpts – What’s Good Bro?

So if I find the derivative of this function, then graph the result, I should get a sinusoidal function which obviously means –

“Yo, what’s good bro?” Annoyed at losing my train of thought, I look up and see a class fellow smirking at me, wearing a ridiculous sports cap and jeans that are practically hanging from his knees. “What ‘choo doing man?” he practically yells at me.

Fear not; I am not trying to re-write the Twilight books.

Immediately, the first thought that comes into your head is that this student is probably just shy, a problem which can be cured over time.
