my math teacher (I'm doing a summer math thing) showed me a little bit about e. He said e is the best number in the universe because it models everything in our universe from population growth to motion. I also found out that e is the limit to the function:

f(x) = (1+(1/x))^x

and I have no clue how to use this but I sure feel a lot smarter and better aboutmyself and probably wont' become an alcoholic for another week or so.
