    Is it really the best idea to tell a total n00b to learn Java *just* to make a game? It seems like it's going a bit overboard, since to learn Java properly takes time... at my university, we don't even study it until second year, when we've already gone through C and Haskell completely. If all you want to do is make a simple game, then RM2K3 is perfectly adequate... or even Sphere. XD

    "One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly discovered facts."
    Albert Einstein

    "What science can there be more noble, more excellent, more useful for men, more admirably high and demonstrative than mathematics."
    Benjamin Franklin

    "Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of paintings or music, yet sublimely pure and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show."
    Bertrand Russell
