Nonsense Pretending to be Knowledge

Así se hacen las multiplicaciones al estilo maya.

I’d never heard of this before and it looked really cool to someone like me who’s super visual and always kind of had a mental block up when it came to math and just dealing with these sums I couldn’t visualize, and I wondered how this applied to numbers that added up to double digit numbers of intersections, so I sat down and whittled it out and realized it’s basically left hand side- hundreds, middle - tens, right hand side - ones (which in retrospect should have been obvious). So like in this example it’s three ones plus seven tens plus two hundreds, but in a bigger example like 48x27 that gives you 8 right, 44 middle, and 56 left it’s like eight hundreds plus 44 tens plus 56

This honestly probably isn’t any faster at all than doing it the old fashioned number stacks way they teach in school, but maybe it resonates with other visual people and helps some eight year old not feel like a stupid loser for being slow at double digit multiplication like I did when I was a kid.

it should be a high school requirement to work in food and retail for at least 6 months a piece so everyone can understand not to be assholes to employees who are just doing their jobs 

and so we actually have some work experience to put on resumes

that’s actually a really good idea

Dear prolifers and mras and conservatives….

You mean dear feminists.

You mean anyone. So many people hold onto stupid ideas and misconceptions.

Average Number of Languages Spoken by the EU Population [650x607]CLICK HERE FOR MORE MAPS!thelandofmaps.tumblr.com

3.2 for The Netherlands. 3.2 languages on average.
Having lived there, that’s absolutely true. I’ve seen Dutch customer service leap from person to person going through Dutch, French, German and English depending on the person. It’s superhuman.
I can’t think of a single Dutch person I encountered over my seven years of living there who didn’t speak enough English to hold a simple conversation with me.

I feel robbed of language opportunities here in Canada. I know we are technically a bilingual country, but in the province I live in we don’t do that much to enforce it. We take classes through elementary but after that it is no longer mandatory so most of us lose it unless our family is French or you have a real interest in it.

“Love your child. And be brave. Open your mind. Choose a gender, choose a name, know that you might be wrong. And that’s true for any kid, whether they have ambiguous genitals or not, you could be wrong. We know that’s true because of the trans community. Let that child decide what they want to do with their body and their genitals.” Interthoughts: Interview with Eden Atwood (X)

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

Things to think about.
