So I'm taking this course "Design and Analysis of Algorithm" for my masters class and we were doing proofs for NP-complete problems. At the end of today's lecture my professor goes like "If you don't fall in love with these proofs then you should go and get your brain tested!"
Me: (since it's not my favorite subject)
Professor there's one problem. We love these proofs but they don't love us and you know one sided relationships always hurt.
Perhaps my personal life is affecting my academics in much worse way than I anticipated But at least I made the whole class laugh after a boring lecture (so proud of me)
A colleague of mine holds a Ph.D in optimization of SQL queries in distributed databases. He told that one of the first things he learned was that such optimization is an NP-complete problem. Working on, he realized that that is a gross oversimplification.
I'm not sure about this but I believe the reason you don't find something like that is that each of these is a way to deal with managing data from code:
1. (sql to classes / objects ala ORM (object relational model) via Repository pattern
2. and a programming construct (LINQ) to deal with it

I got on a bus in Stockholm and started chatting to the Swede next to me. Everyone else started laughing at me. "That's not a Swede", they said, "that's a turnip".
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
