friska-freak this is how I remember doing algebra haha BUT WHO EVEN KNOWS ANYMORE
This would’ve been literally years ago though like I haven’t done a math class since high school (I miss math)

That is sorta how my sister does it too yes
It’s just I dunno why they need to put the -4 twice- like just put send it to the other side and have it over with |D
but then again, that’s my opinion, so if it works it’s a valid method! Just seems a bit confusing to me. Then again I’m missing a lot as far as math is concerned so I probably shouldn’t talk. |D

The idea is like if you do it to one side of the equal sign you need to do it to the other, thus like… keeping things in balance and stuff? Like I said I like to keep track of my arithmetic since I’m SO BAD at arithmetic haha so I’d keep those straight but then I’d be lazy when it’d come to like the division and just put one line across and stuff which… isn’t accurate or anything but that’s how it is
A lot of the way I write comes out of laziness and trying to keep my math stuff straight haha

WAIT.
WAIT I GET WHY THEY USE THAT METHOD NOW. 8D
It’s to prepare the students to use the same method in chemistry: keep both sides in balance- except I do not remember a single thing from my chemistry classes so I can’t be a good judge of this at all. >u>”
But I do at least remember you had to keep a balance on both sides of the formula
….Or maybe I’m just being weird about this I dunno

Oh huh yeah that would make sense
My memory of chem is dim but yeah I can see how it ties in

Sameface Part 2: Revenge of the gender dimorphism

coelasquid:

turbomun:

A while ago, I wrote a long-ass article about a certain animated movie’s less-than-stellar treatment of its female character designs. It was not the first, last, or most popular post on the subject, but it did get over 19,000 notes, which is about 18,900 notes more than I thought it would get. By now, everyone is sick to death of hearing about Frozen, and especially about how all the women look the same. So rest assured that I’m not here today to talk about Frozen again.

Instead, I’m here to talk about The Book of Life.

People seem to be getting pretty hyped about this movie, and why shouldn’t they? It’s a film about Mexican culture with an actual Mexican director, and the visual style is certainly a far cry from anything that Disney has ever done. But upon my first viewing of the trailer, I couldn’t help but notice something.

Once again, all of the female characters have the Exact Same Face.

Okay, when I say the Exact Same Face, I don’t mean that their faces are literally exactly the same. What I do mean that if the only difference between their faces is that one has slightly more curved eyes on the top, or one has their nose and mouth placed four millimeters lower, than we have a problem…especially when the male characters look like this:

Last time, we examined why Sameface Syndrome occurs (hint: it’s not about laziness!) and I explained that it’s much more common for it to happen to women than men, since it’s tied to female beauty standards. But what exactly are those beauty standards, and why does the ubiquitous Exact Same Face appear across films and studios in a similar form every time?

Friends, welcome to the wonderful world of gender dimorphism.

I still really want to see Book of Life, but the women in this movie are so homogenous it’s confusing. Every time I’ve seen La Muerte in the promotional materials my brain immediately registered her as Maria with a painted face.

Today the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena shares a rare and incredible sight: a pod of sperm whales fast asleep, floating in a vertical position, some with noses pointed up towards the water’s surface, some pointed down to the ocean floor. It’s a haunting sight, something the whales are believed to do for only brief periods of about 12 minutes at a time. Quick, vertical power naps.

Researchers have observed sleeping sperm whales exhibiting the same sort of Rapid Eye Movement that’s associated with dreaming in humans. So now we’re wondering what sorts of awesome things whales dream about.

I’m catching up on James Urbaniak’s “Getting On with James Urbaniak” podcast and haha oh dang episode 14 “Custody” was just like… for some reason I found it so creepy and I’m not even sure why but it’s still good even if no one else thinks it’s creepy

This whole podcast is great though I’m digging it a lot though I’m like a year behind haha

This was also how I did it! Perhaps things have changed, though!

I have no idea, and the sad thing is my dad is like a high school math teacher so like… maybe I should ask him… hahaha maybe later

ARIEL By Colleen Doran
Occupation: Thief, adventurerPlace Of Birth: Planet Coconut Grove Base Of Operations: Beat Street Clubhouse, New York CityHistory: Ariel is an extraterrestrial from the world known as Coconut Grove, home of a culture devoted to the pursuit of pleasurePowers: She can bend space so that a space warp is created connecting two points that would otherwise take light years to travelFirst Appearance: Fallen Angels #1 (April 1987)
TOHOTMU Vol.3, #1 (July 1989)

There’s a big backstory behind this. I did all these Who’s Who pages, but the series I worked on never came out.
Editor Bob Harris wanted some pretty heavy rewrites, and in retrospect, I think he was right to do so. He called me up and asked if I would be willing to work with another writer, and out of loyalty to the writer who’d gotten me this first big gig at Marvel, I didn’t think I could do that. So Marvel killed the project.
I’d already done about 100 pages of art, which have never been published, and it would have been my first major Marvel series. I’d already done individual comics and some short stints. So, all in all, a huge disappointment.
I have no hard feelings. I was paid in full, and Marvel was fully within their rights to kill the book if they didn’t think it could be salvaged. But it’s unfortunate in many ways, as it was some of my best drawing at the time. And in comics, out of sight is out of mind. I had no published work for a significant time while working on this, and I’d been out of the market a long time when I went to look for new work.

1. that is awful, to do so much work and then have it go nowhere seems massively dissapointing, I’d feel so sad.
2. this design/drawing is so cute I want to marry it.
