no way

i can’t decide if this is figuratively or literally unbelievable

Literally look at this misdirecting shit. Look at it. 

Look at how they organize the y-axis in descending order in order to make the chart go DOWN, assuming people wont look at it for two seconds and assume that enrollment is falling when its actually nearly doubled since its first estimation. 

This is the kind of shit that Fox News pulls to lie to its viewers in plain sight. This is how desperate they are to discredit the ACA as unpopular and unwanted when its actually the opposite.

SPOOPY BUS

This is actually pissing me off. It has begun to ruin halloween for me knowing people don’t spell check. Things are massed produced in factories and sent out for sale to the public spelt spoopy, doo, and creppy. Like what the actual fuck. My computer even automatically changes spoopy to spooky. I mean, come on. The best holiday season and businesses don’t even care enough about it to spell check the items they’re gonna sell. Fuck this shit.

come on buddy wheres your smngfiehp cheer

DOO.

I hope it makes that person feel better knowing most of these incidents are photoshopped.

Learnt an interesting thing today on this arabic course,
The original Arabic number system looked like this, the one we now use.
It was designed so each character had the corresponding number of angles to the number, so the number 1 has 1 angle, 2 has 2 angles, 3 has 3, 0 has none etc…
It is so obvious now, I’ve always assumed its one of those things that just is, with no logical explanation, but here it is, perfectly simple and satisfying

My jaw is legit on the floor right about now :D

This is WRONG. COMPLETELY WRONG. I’ve seen this post on my dash at least ten times with no correction so here it is:

This is the evolution of the modern numeral system. PLEASE STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION. The history of Mathematics is awesome and amazing and Arabs made tons and tons of progress and invented many of the concepts we use today, but a numeral system based on angles IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

ah yes, valid criticism about frozen being a shit movie must be so hard on these fictional character’s self esteem.

Nevermind that the racism and sexism in Frozen hurts actual children, think of how ur tumblr posts would make these fictional characters feel

INCREDIBLE

I hate when people try to frame criticism of creative decisions by creators (especially large companies) as being attacks on the poor little characters.  This is just like when Stan Lee tried to deflect criticism of the way he writes Sue Storm by writing a comic where the F4 read fan mail and Sue was crying about how mean everybody was to her.  Sue Storm isn’t real, and acting as if people mad about the sexist creative decisions of a male writer is actually being mean to a fictional woman is really really really disingenuous.  Or when people act like Escher Girls isn’t about the way companies and the industry as a whole represents women, but is “shaming” the sexuality of the sad warrior women who just want to express themselves in boobs and butt fighting stances and battle bikinis.

These fictional characters are details in a product, and criticism of the decisions that go into making that product is no more awful than criticizing the design of the new iPhone.  It’s not hurting the iPhone’s feelings, it’s about Apple.  And trying to pretend that criticism of a multi billion dollar company like Disney is actually picking on a little girl is so so so amazingly dishonest, and willfully trying to dodge the real issues.

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”

Uhg.

Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

thank you science side of tumblr <3

Seriously. You could probably do all of these with lemon juice (citric acid) or vinegar (ethanoic, or acetic, acid) just because acids work in pretty similar ways. Actually, when you see people recommending vinegar as a household cleaner? This is what it’s doing!

Also, as someone who has accidentally inhaled hydrochloric acid fumes, TRUST ME, THE CARBONIC ACID IS MUCH BETTER.

Every time I see a hysterical post on modern food I just kinda point and laugh

Because dude. Dude.  You know what you breathe in and out every fucking second to survive? Oxygen. An incredibly corrosive gas that is probably responsible for more deaths across the history of the planet than anything else. Not only that, it’s a biproduct of photosynthesis. You literally rely on plant excretions to survive

Do you know what most of your body is made up of? Water. Which, given enough time, will destroy anything.

That morning coffee you like? Well shit, caffeine - lifeblood to many - is actually an incredibly potent nerve toxin (If you’re an insect). Plants actually produce that shit as an insecticide.

That refreshing zing from citrus?  Acid.  That juicy smack of a tomato? Acid and cadmium.  That tart in an apple? Arsenic.  That seasoning you put all over your fish and chips? Acid strong enough to destroy seashells - life that has evolved to survive living in a salt-drenched sea.

Stop being a tit and drink your damned coke.

Meanwhile I am here to tell you that if you broil chicken breast in a 1:1 mix of ketchup and coca cola (or any other brand of cola really), that shit is delicious. serve it with mashed sweet potatoes and corn cobs. <3
