Reading math blogs is a bad idea.

They make math sound interesting.

I have no real math background.

I should not be thinking about looking into math theory, because I get weebly and nervous over /algebra/.

I suspect it's just my intellectual arrogance kicking in again; the firm conviction that there's not anything I couldn't understand, if I just put in the effort for it. But I know that I'm not keen on math, and that I'll get bored with the mechanics, even if the theory is intriguing.

Also, should not be looking at MU*code tutorials for much the same reasons.

I have found that breaking oneself of that intellectual arrogance is a major and useful tidbit -- or at least noting that different people must exert different amounts of effort for the same result.

But a few minutes of tinkering, or flipping through a math theory book from the library; this does no harm.
