I always feel like I should apologize for my personal posts, but then I realize that I have Ultimate Blog Power. I can write an essay about how sad I am and then post ten pictures of dogs rollerblading. You can’t stop me.

girls don’t like boys girls like the starship enterprise

I guess boys can come clean then. They like the Starship Enterprise as well. Let’s stop pursuing each other, and instead pursue peace and acceptance of all sentient life so that we can boldly go where no one has gone before.

What if we don’t like starship enterprise? What if we don’t like space?
Space is scary. Life is scary. Life in space is terrifying. I will boldly go hide in a cave with my tin hat thank you.

c’mon bones it’ll be fun

extraneousaccessories Asked: Identity ask: 1, 10, & 18:)

1. if someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to?

Read: Harry Potter, the Hallows Series by Kim Harrison, an good textbook on the introduction to world religions, a decent book on religious cults/sects (or maybe a few good articles), How to be Canadian and Why I Hate Canadians by Will Ferguson.

Watch: Star Wars, Star Trek Voyager, some stand up by Eddie Izzard, Mr. Nobody, The Last Unicorn, The Yogscast on Youtube (esp the main channel and Hannah’s), a play through of the Mass Effect video games with a Fem!shep, A White Christmas, and maybe some horror (paranormal) and post apocalyptic stuff.

Listen to: I don’t have specific songs that I’m like “oh yes that is me, I relate to this so much always” because I find it changes rather often depending on my mood. The best I could do would be to offer artists that I like but I don’t really feel like that answers this question.

It should be noted that I did not put all my favourite things on the list, but things that I think influenced me a lot, or that I reference a lot.I feel like I missed something SUPER obvious.

10. do you have a creed?

Nah, I can never think of something that would work/that I could stick with.

18. what’s your patronus?

Oh god, I’ve always wondered this myself! I was hoping that Pottermore would solve this question for me but it doesn’t look like they will. I have a feeling it would end up being a canine or a bird of some kind.

These were challenging questions D:
Thanks for the ask friend!

According to NBC Washington, this is one of the ridiculous ways Common Core teaches kids problem solving and critical thinking… with simple beyond reason math problems.

I found this image on Facebook and shared it and even asked my stepfather to take a look at it. An aerospace engineer (a career involving a heavy amount of calculus) could not figure out what was going on here. If you’re making math so hard that someone who studied his anus off in calculus classes can’t understand it, you’re making it too hard for kids. Burn Common Core to the ground.

yes!!

I can’t even begin to understand why this new fangled way is necessary. Like…I’m so confused right now looking at this. 

To heck with the American public education system. This is why out children don’t tank top 10 globally. This is why our children can’t get jobs.

The hell is the new one??? Dafuq??

Okay, rant incoming…
I’ve seen this post a couple times now and I get it, learning new means of thinking about concepts that you easily understand is difficult, but there are kids out there that NEED that shit so badly it hurts. I was one of them.
"Wait there a moment, aren’t you a computer engineer in their masters?"
Why yes I am
"Doesn’t that mean you are great at maths?"
Why yeah
And you wanna know why?
Cause a fucking teacher in my first grade took the extra time to teach me another means of thinking about how addition and subtraction works. I couldn’t grasp maths as straight up adding and subtracting. I needed the underlying relations, I needed the background, I needed that second method that all of you are mocking. That second method says “look, everything is made up of smaller parts, and if you break down the difference between two numbers, that is what subtraction is.”

I reblogged this before, but I’m doing it again for the last commentary. I still don’t understand wtf is happening in the second solution, but I respect that the method works for some people. Math an be a tricky concept to wrap ones head around (I’m still not great at it myself) and as such I am all for catering to specific ways of thinking about the problem (although I, like fygerfyre, do disagree with forcing a child to learn and be tested on -all- methods).
