AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH, BROTHER.
That's some quantum shit, yo.
Yes, brother, it is.
so much win
If only the gravity DID stop working....
It brings you down :/
This really makes me happy.
Can't wait till stupid hunting season!
They forgot a comma!
Six mistakes. Someone didn't do their bellringers in elementary school. :/
What is a bellringer??
For all us Grammar Nazis.
Hold on.. Someone explain to me why the **** we learn proofs, I get why we learn locus, but Proofs? all they do is make me want to hang my self.
pardon the grammar, I'm tired
The main point is to learn logical, step-by-step thinking, I believe.
I do that anyway. My problem with proofs is that I can't memorize which part goes where. In a Real life example, I can do just fine with Step-by-step thinking. but I do better when I act on instincts, as they haven't failed me yet. 2 Weeks ago I was at the beach with a group of my friends. We were in the water and We noticed 2 girls calling for help, who had drifted out way too far and couldn't swim back. The logical thing to do would have been to go get a life guard. MY first instinct was to swim out there and go help the 2 girls, seeing as I can out swim the lifeguards at my local beach anyway. Some times Logical step by step thinking takes too long. When peoples lives are at stake. If you hesitate in some situations, people die.
Way to step up and do what was needed, hopefully you saved them.
Saved them, got a phone number from one of the girls (She's pretty hot, not gonna lie) and ended up telling off the fat-fuck that calls himself a lifeguard. Me and one of my friends ended up swimming out and we each grabbed one of the girls and helped them swim back. Wasn't much of a heroic thing, but I'd rather end up throwing up a gallon of seawater then seeing a girl drown due to the incompetence of others.
Well done sir, too many people sit by and watch (or film) events like this, glad to see you step up and do what is right. You are a Prince among men, I declare a feast in your honor! HUZZAH!
Woooo! PARTAY!!! But in all seriousness I hate that too. I remember a Lolbrary user talking about the time he was mugged in a Subway station (He called it the Tube, so a Londoner I'm guessing) Atleast 200 people walked by and all completely ignored the fact that 2 black guys had him pinned to a wall. I do understand why people choose not to help though, when I was swimming out there my sub conscious was telling me to go the fuck back to the beach and ignore it. But I did what I felt was right, and It payed off.
I hear you, the only real situation like that I was put in was while working for an animal shelter, an aggressive dog got loose and made a bee-line for an 8 year old little girl. Out of the 5 volunteers, 7 employees, and scores of potential adopters, only me and 1 other person moved - girls father, who scooped her up milliseconds before I got there and got taken down by the dog. 32 stitches for me, and a perfectly healthy 8 year old girl. One of the proudest moments of my life.
As odysseyfreak said, you learn logical, step-by-step thinking. I believe they also teach kids to back up statements with solid facts and not pull things out of their ass. Also, it kinda teaches kids to question statements that are presented as facts.
Like the fact that we have to learn proofs? I failed Geometry for the second year in a row because of Proofs, Can't graduate without it.
That sucks a lot, I am sorry. How many more chances do you have?
What proofs do you guys do in geometry? I am not sure on how to word it and only sound curious and not condescending
Triangle proofs, Circle proofs, and Square proofs. In total they just hurt my head, This is my last shot otherwise I get held back and become a "Super Senior" Taking summer school for it now, if I don't pass that I have to take it next year, if I fail that I have to repeat senior year. I'll figure it out eventually.
