I finally saw the point behind getting an engineering degree..
Damn.. I wish I had seen it earlier.. like when I still had a chance.
Most of the stuff he explained went above my head.. but i understood bits and parts.. (like RLC circuit, step-up/step-down transformer, inverter/converter :).. and I was glad that I did.. saved me from being a complete fool.
I was impressed, awed and intimidated all at once.
