Because I got a memory leak in my function f(). It uses scipy, numpy,
pylab, and I am not planning to solve the memory leak because its too
complicated. So I thought of just calling the function then when it is
finished the process is gone and all memory is released. With
threading I don't think I would solve this problem. I am not sure
though.
