According to NBC Washington, this is one of the ridiculous ways Common Core teaches kids problem solving and critical thinking… with simple beyond reason math problems.
I found this image on Facebook and shared it and even asked my stepfather to take a look at it. An aerospace engineer (a career involving a heavy amount of calculus) could not figure out what was going on here. If you’re making math so hard that someone who studied his ass off in calculus classes can’t understand it, you’re making it too hard for kids. Burn Common Core to the fucking ground.

yes!!

I can’t even begin to understand why this new fangled way is necessary. Like…I’m so confused right now looking at this shit. Bish whet?

Fuck the American public education system. This shit is why out children don’t tank top 10 globally. This is why our children can’t get jobs.

Can anyone actually explaexplain what the hell is going on here?

As far as I can tell, they start at 12, add small numbers to get to up a multiple of 10 (I guess add 3 first because 15 is a multiple of 5, and an easy number to work with? it’d probably make more sense to just add 8 at this step), then add another 10 (because single digits are easy), then once they’re at 30, add a 2 to get up to the “target number” 32. Then they take just the numbers that they added, and add those up, to make 20.
When the difference is “obviously” 20, then this seems entirely pointless, but if you could teach a kid this methodology, then it probably wouldn’t be too daunting to apply it to bigger subractions, e.g. 123628-72139 (or at least, not too daunting compared to traditional methods).

A key point is that it’s turned a subtraction problem into an addition problem, and a lot of people find addition to be a lot easier than subtraction.
If kids are taught that this is the method to do subtraction, then I agree that there’s an issue (when I tried this method it was slow as hell, though admittedly I did just guess the method and may have missed something). If they’re taught that it’s a method, by a teacher who’s capable of explaining it themselves, then it’s not an issue, and will probably help at least some kids who would otherwise struggle.
PS please keep the aerospace engineer from the OP away from any planes I might ever fly on.

so much happening here:
Feels a lot like you’re saying all of those things are supposed to be synonyms for “crazy” and “insane,” which is honestly more hurtful to me as a mentally ill person than being called “crazy” or “insane.”
Thanks for starring out the letter A there. If I see those words entirely intact, I’ll probably spin into a manic rage and poop on the floor like a wild animal! Thanks for removing literally one letter so I only have to see 85% of the word, now I don’t have to start foaming at the mouth!
The words “crazy” and “insane” are actually really important words for a lot of mentally ill people, who use it as a necessary shorthand to express concern that our illnesses might be skewing our perceptions of reality. For example, “is it crazy that I’m so worried about this?” is a much more effective thing to say than “is this a legitimate concern, or am I just projecting my own anxieties and paranoia onto the world around me?” Treating “crazy” as an inherently hurtful slur in all contexts (even “just saying it with no context so people know which word you’re talking about” as above) takes away a “real or not real” shorthand from us. 
Seriously this kind of post is so patronizing people stop doing them

I’m guessing that the suggestion was to stop using the words “crazy” and “insane” for things that don’t relate to mental health, such as:
"I had a really crazy day at work today" → "I had a really strange day at work today"
"Eating cereal without milk is just insane" → "Eating cereal without milk is just unthinkable"
"I’m crazy in love with you" → "I’m passionately in love with you"
etc

So what, he didn’t call them cinnamon rolls? A synonym is a different word that means the same thing.

I dragged a pic from my browser into a folder to save it, and it’s glitched and left a ghost image over my IRC client, which is a nice improvement... I’m very easily entertained.
Though, now I want a program that does just this, so I can stick cute transparent “stickers” over my monitor.


Image Overlay Utility is awesome :3

Okay, how do I search only posts made by people I follow? If I want to refer back to a post that was on my dash, but I can’t remember who might’ve made it, surely there’s an easier way to do it than either manually trawling back through thousands of pages of my dashboard or searching literally every user’s posts on tumblr?

My first real art in approximately forever - of Bastet from Puzzle and Dragons.
I’m not too happy with how my lazy blurry shading came out, so I’ll probably try recolouring it at some point in the future.

Honestly, I have no idea why some people complain about tumblr’s recommendations appearing on their dashboard. I’ve not had any issues with it yet.
