MAKING JOKES ABOUT HOW “ITS WEIRD TO SEE ME OUT OF MY ROOM FOR ONCE” DOES NOT MAKE ME WANT TO LEAVE MY ROOM MORE IT MAKES ME WANT TO LOCK MY DOOR AND NEVER LEAVE AGAIN I DON’T KNOW WHY THAT’S SUCH A HARD CONCEPT

This also applies to “WOW SHE’S CLEANING!” and anything else like that do not fucking do that.

CAN I JUST ADD “LOOK AT THAT SHES SMILING” OR “WoW SHEs TALKING”

Wow, maths is fucking hard. I used to be amazing at this crap, now I’m flummoxed by a few measly surds

this is fucked up. this fucked me up. the teachers fucked up by not showing us this fuck up. fuck.

dear god

i’m 28 and never knew this

It’s basically the same thing as:
21 x 13 =

20 x 13 + 1 x 13 =

20 x 10 + 20 x 3 + 1 x 10 + 1 x 3 =

200 + 60 + 10 + 3 = 273

Writing it out like that makes it look more complicated than it is though. The visual representation of it is good though, and it would be great if schools went into things like that, and explained how it all worked.

Multiplication never really clicked for me while they were getting us to memorise times tables. In fact I was pretty awful at maths for ages. I memorised the easy ones, like 2s, 5s and 10s, and then worked from there, but the simplest way to deal with things like that is to just break shit down. Twenty one times thirteen might sound hard, but then it’s pretty close to twenty times thirteen, and multiplying something by twenty is just like adding a zero and doubling it, so two hundred and sixty, and then an extra thirteen in there.

Finally, there’s a reason the example used 21 x 13, and not, say, 97 x 58. Try that one out and see why.

Working LEGO Microscope »

So, I don’t know if I’ve linked to this before, but at the moment on LEGO Ideas there is a project where a scientist has worked out a way to build a working microscope out of LEGO components, notably the working LEGO minifigure magnifying glass. It’s kind of amazing, and it needs 9,000 more supporters to reach the point where the LEGO group will consider developing it into an actual set.

So if you think this is as cool as I do, you should support it! All you need is a free account, and there’s no commitment to buy or anything; it’s not the kickstarter model, it’s just gauging interest.

These are some of the really nice photos by Eliza Mills, the photographer I partnered up with for a uni project. None of these three were actually used in the final thing, but I thought they were cool, especially the water guy, so here they are.

I’ve been dreaming a lot lately, or remembering them more regularly. They’ve mostly been really really normal, except they’re way better than my actual life right now. They’re this weird imaginary future point in my life where I’ve repaired friendships and gotten my shit together.
It mostly makes me want to sleep all the time. The dreams feel real while I’m in them, and a huge part of me just wants to stay. So I’ve been having trouble sleeping because I’m trying to do it too much. It’s fucked up.

if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you

I habitually use gendered slang like dude or guys, so call me out if it’s a thing pls I won’t be a jerk

Done for a uni project, on the topic of communication. I decided to go right down to the most basic level.
