What's wrong with a watch with corners? Dick Tracy's 2-Way Wrist Radio had corners.

I have a BS in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Psychology and started to to work in IT the day after I graduated. I have worked on a lot of complex transportation systems include optimization algorithm development, but I never found a need for the calculus or physics that I did take. But the writing skills that I acquired back them have really paid off when I needed to write specifications and other technical documentation.
Re: The importance of complexity
Most developers do not get to work on NP hard problems. I have been solving transportation work assignment problems using K-opt, insertion and genetic algorithms for the past 25 years, and I have had only one other person work on these algorithms with me. The huge majority of the other developers worked solely on the data manipulation end of the applications. It's a lot like compiler design, very people actually do that kind of work.
