And this of course is Aragorn’s sword Anduril, Flame of the West, re-forged from the shards of Narsil, given to me by Viggo Mortensen. Now, this has nothing to do with the metaphor - I just want to remind everyone that I have this.

finally something that treats introverts and extroverts as equals
The punctuation is even accurate holy shit
Freaking thank you. Being shy and being an introvert are not the same thing, as well as being obnoxious and being an extrovert.
my fifth grade teacher once told my parents in a report that i was “comma happy”

Can’t reblog this enough
Yo, whiney math kid. Take a step back and realize that the word “imaginary” is only an arbitrary classification used to label the square root of negative one. It’s a perfectly “real” mathematical construct with practical applications throughout mathematics and natural sciences.
Yo, whiney math nerd. Take a step back and realize that 98% of the kids in high school will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever use imaginary numbers in their lifetimes, though 100% of them will, at some point, need to know how to do such things as balance a checkbook, file taxes, manage a budget, and complete other tasks that require math but do not require integrating massive functions or understanding the concept of imaginary numbers. Imaginary numbers may have practical applications throughout mathematics and natural sciences, but for a student like Carson, who is depicted in these GIFs from the film Struck by Lightning and who wants to be a journalist, this is an utterly pointless lesson that the American education system makes him sit through because he’s too smart for lower levels of mathematics—but he can’t not take a math class because lord knows that would absolutely destroy the foundations of the American civilization.
I never ever comment on posts, but I feel like it’s kind of important to comment on this one. While I 100% agree that learning how to balance a checkbook is way WAY more important than imaginary numbers, I feel like I should share what my Algebra 3 teacher told us last year. A couple of girls were whining about how “we’ll never use this ever,” so our teacher stopped the lesson and finally explained to us what math class is actually for. He told us that math isn’t about learning pointless equations, it’s about learning how to think. Math teaches you to problem solve and think things out, better than any other class. It’s not about memorizing equations, it’s about learning how and when to apply them, using trial and error, etc. While the actual math part seems tedious and pointless, the concept behind it is what matters. However, I do agree that a class that teaches you things like taxes and checkbooks should be a much higher priority. But I also believe that math is a lot more important that some people realize.
Just a bunch of Night Vale quotes. None of these belong to me.
Mew, you little shit. You broke the flow
And yes, I will tag all these little shits. Just you watch
