Past The Point Of Obsessed

You’re not insane. It does!

"You think I’m crazy."

That’s when he fell in love with her. Cutest scene ever.

#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.



What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

I’m taking fucking Calculus and I don’t get what the teacher is trying to do.
8+5=13. You can’t take 2 out of 5 and have 3 left over and just sitting in the side with nowhere to go. Math doesn’t work like that. AND, MR OR MRS TEACHER, YOU CERTAINLY CAN’T ADD 3 TO 8+2 BECAUSE YOU STILL GET 13
YOU ALREADY DID 8+2=10 YOU GOT 10 WHY DO YOU ADD 3?! YOU WON’T HAVE 10 ANYMORE YOU’LL HAVE 13
WHICH IS WHAT 8+5 IS SUPPOSED TO FUCKING EQUAL
GODDAMMIT

I get pretty frustrated whenever I see people hating on math problems worded like this.  Ok, the problem is written this way to make sure the children understand two things: one) 8+5 = 13.  and 2) 13 is more than ten, and therefore having two quantities of 8 and 5 will ensure that they at least get 10 units.  
It sounds completely absurd and unnecessary. Why can’t we just ask them what 8+5 is, or is 8+5 more than ten? But the idea is to challenge their thinking. It’s trying to combine their logical side with a more visual/qualitative side where children are actually picturing the size of the numbers in their head instead of blindly memorizing facts.  I see so many issues with students who can’t do basic algebra, and even struggle with basic multiplication and addition because they can’t understand the simple concept of numbers.
Math comes easy to some but some kids really, really struggle with picking up on stuff as simple as counting numbers, and that’s perfectly OK and normal.  However, we need teachers getting creative and asking questions that cause them to think because forcing kids to think deeply about what they have learned will force them to better grasp the concept of numbers, which is extremely important to gain at a young age.  I understand that this specific question is worded kind of strangely, but i am sure there were example problems of this problem given to them at other times that they could reference to understand how to solve the problem.  Once they’ve been introduced to the concept of the idea, they should be able to apply it.
Learning how to see something differently is extremely important, and there have been many, many different ways in trying to do math in the past.  It may seem wrong because it’s not the way you’ve been taught (such as grouping which seems odd to a lot who have never seen it before), but that doesn’t mean the concept hasn’t been successfully used in the past.  I actual agree with them trying to change up the way we’ve been teaching mathematics to students, because lately our students are falling behind and many signs point to us not properly introducing mathematical concepts at a young age.
I get it, there are some shitty math teachers out there and tons of unfair questions.  But please don’t just blindly hate on an idea just because it’s different, some teachers are really trying to expand a students ability to think critically, which means thinking “outside the box” when trying to find solutions, even in math where we’ve been taught there’s only one way to find the answer (when there isn’t).

Does this help them become engineers in any way? Serious question.

Any video of Gillian on Fox&Friends this morning that you've seen?

Yes, here is a link. 

They try to ask her about David, but she didn’t hear the question. THANKS FOR TRYING, FOX AND FRIENDS. 

"Two things: how nervous were you writing this and do you still talk to David Duchovny?" and she didn’t hear the second part because she was too busy answering the first question already.

Aaaand they showed a clip of THE PILOT, which makes her laugh. 

Cute interview. I can almost ignore how much I hate everything about Fox & Friends (and Fox News in general) for 3 minutes.

Did they just call her Scully? 😂 Such simple folk.

Flirty babies

Roger Angell reflects on Derek Jeter’s final home game: 

“The Yankees’ season had, for all purposes, ended with a loss the previous evening, which mathematically eliminated them from post-season play. They didn’t make it into October last year, either, but Derek had not played in any late games after his sidelining by that severe ankle injury. Last night’s encounter was the first meaningless game he’d ever played in pinstripes—but then he gave it meaning.”

Hi! Do you mind if I ask where I can download "Streetcar"? I'd love to see it again and it would be awesome to have a copy. Not sure NT Live would release it in DVD. Thanks!
