Why would that be funny?
Try explaining the idea to people. That's when shit REALLY gets real. I told a some of people about this a couple of years ago because I thought it was interesting (albeit not exactly plausible), and I got a lot of strange reactions. Some people were like "Yeah, wow! That makes so much sense", others just nodded and chuckled like they were simply humouring me, but some people freaked the fuck out. Like, they got really angry at me for no apparent reason. It was as if I was telling them their entire lives were just a series of lies, even though I let them know that what I was telling them was nothing more than a hypothetical situation.
Sometimes I feel bad and let the entire add run before a YouTube video or something. I just imagine the marketing person sitting in a corner and crying softly because he knows he's just paid a crap load of money just to have people zone out and then click "skip" after the required three seconds, and I want to make him feel as if he made at least a small difference.
Thanks to taking on classes I couldn't handle, joining too many clubs, and just being generally far too lazy of a person to not procrastinate on all of my responsibilities, I was kind of pushed over the edge last year. Luckily for me, getting "pushed over the edge" doesn't mean drugs or anything. I just got into the habbit of saying stuff like "This is due in ten fucking minutes and I'm not even fucking CLOSE to being done and FUCK EVERYTHING I HATE MY FUCKING LIFE. SHIT."
Unfortunately, since I'm so small and unthreatening, everyone laughs at me when they hear it. :(
Very true. Gaben, cats, and "lol Rampart".
It's definitely not intelligent humor, but for some reason I like it anyway. I know a lot of the Internet is pretty anti-BBT, though (I'm looking at you, Reddit).
When I play Zelda, I save obsessively. Every minute, I stop and click save. It's become a sort of subconscious habbit; I barely even notice that I do it, because I'm not consciously thinking about it. My fingers just instinctively go through the motions of "kill those keese, now flick that switch, now press start and save, now check the map . . . ".
So, my biggest fear is that, after getting killed, the "Game Over" screen appears and instead of pressing "quit", I press "save". And ruin everything.
You can only imagine my paranoid terror as I stare at the screen and veeeerry carefully lower my finger onto "quit", internally freaking out that something may happen and my finger might slip and accidentally press the wrong button if I'm not careful, and then I'd have to start all over again. And probably cry a lot.
TL;DR Saving is serious business.
I understand that. I am a fan of Shakespear's work, but Romeo & Juliet has never really appealed to me. I see the beauty in the literature itself, but I simply cannot connect with any of the characters. I can appreciate that it's a great tragedy, but I just don't like it.
Not to mention the entire love affair took place over the course of a week, and all of the characters are extremely melodramatic and stupid. And honestly, Romeo just wants to get it in.
I had an overweight PE teacher in middle school. She would tell at us about the poor quality of our push-ups while she watched and ate doughnuts.
I'd love to go back the Shakespearean era, but only because I'm a sucker for cool dresses. Otherwise, hell no. Your post is nothing more than a romanticized fantasy, I'm afraid. That time period was full of violence, corruption, religious turmoil, extreme racism and sexism, and on top of all that even those awesome dresses would get pretty uncomfortable after a while.
Also, fuck being treated like a dainty flower just because I'm a woman. If I were in a relationship, I'd want to be an equal.
I meant the longer long division problems. I understand why you would do that for the smaller ones.
But yeah, I usually need my calculator for Log functions (or, at least, the more complicated ones), but then again, how often do I need to use Log functions in real life? Not as often as long division, that's for sure.
That actually sounds more complicated than simply doing the long division in your head, but whatever works! But why would you do all that if you had a calculator? You just said you usually do the more difficult long-division questions on a calculator. (Thus using long division, even if you're not working it out on your own)
Ah. But you're still using long division, even if you aren't doing it manually or mentally.
