Which is cuter, a dalek? or the TARDIS?
He doesn’t look like he’s going to be gentle at all
First full day of work! My feet hurt. But I got $21 in tips o.o.
Also, i’m gonna start tagging my text posts (unrelated to mafia games which that tag is mafia game posts) ‘shut up page’ so you can blacklist these if you want.
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr!
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same as will their mission to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve. Yahoo! will help Tumblr get even better, faster.
Tumblr has built an amazing place to follow the world’s creators. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Tumblr hosts 105 million different blogs. With more than 300 million monthly unique visitors and 120,000 signups every day, Tumblr is one of thefastest-growing media networks in the world. Tumblr sees 900 posts per second (!) and 24 billion minutes spent onsite each month. On mobile, more than half of Tumblr’s users are using the mobile app, and those users do an average of 7 sessions per day. Tumblr’s tremendous popularity and engagement among creators, curators and audiences of all ages brings a significant new community of users to the Yahoo! network. The combination of Tumblr+Yahoo! could grow Yahoo!’s audience by 50% to more than a billion monthly visitors, and could grow traffic by approximately 20%.
In terms of working together, Tumblr can deploy Yahoo!’s personalization technology and search infrastructure to help its users discover creators, bloggers, and content they’ll love. In turn, Tumblr brings 50 billion blog posts (and 75 million more arriving each day) to Yahoo!’s media network and search experiences. The two companies will also work together to create advertising opportunities that are seamless and enhance user experience.
As I’ve said before, companies are all about people. Getting to know the Tumblr team has been really amazing. I’ve long held the view that in all things art and design, you can feel the spirit and demeanor of those who create them. That’s why it was no surprise to me that David Karp is one of the nicest, most empathetic people I’ve ever met. He’s also one of the most perceptive, capable entrepreneurs I’ve worked with. His respect for Tumblr’s community of creators is awesome, and I’m absolutely delighted to have him and his entire team join Yahoo!.
Both Tumblr and Yahoo! share a vision to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas by focusing on users, design — and building experiences that delight and inspire the world every day.
Because if I see one more stupid post on how Yahoo is going to fuck up tumblr by being ‘family friendly’ or for any other bullshit reason, I’m going to fucking scream.
oh my god the story in the library:
“Drawing from his waning forces, he created the Library, more beautiful than ever before. Its height pierced the smoky clouds and there he stood.Much like a guardian angel, he had done everything for them. He had brought them peace, security and entertainment. Such was his generosity.For a while, that was all good and well for all, they enjoyed the new land with the innocence of a child. They were running down the streets, enjoying …But the dynamics of the world soon drove the people mad. They forgot about their joys and eventually succumbed to their neurosis of fear and worries.Meanwhile, the Flaming Winged Sovereign weeped on his throne, their joys saddened to have been forgotten by Man. He had no more time for their worries.And so the Flaming Bird turned into a cat and the cat into a Ruler. Driven insane by his anger and sadness, he summoned forth a storm of evil spirits upon his sujects. His madness had …While the spectres where destroying the world he had created, he sought helter [sic] at the sunnit of his most wonderful creation, the Great Library.There was nothing else to be done but wait for the man who would rise forth to destroy him. For deep inside his soul, there was no doubt the what he did was Evil. The End”
I’m reblogging this everyday.
Okay this mindset legitimately bothers me. The fact that people do this thing where they BRAG about how they don’t use math, as if to somehow say that they shouldn’t have learned it, I find to be seriously flawed.
The purpose of school isn’t to teach you ONLY what you will use directly every day. It’s to create adults who are well-rounded, intelligent individuals with at least a basic understanding of the way the world works and have respect for the different fields that create the world we live in today. Considering that math is one of the single greatest achievements of the human race and that nearly every single thing we know about the world, every single technological advancement is based in one way or another on mathematics, it’s NOT unreasonable to want people to have at least a basic understanding and respect for how it works.
Not to mention, math isn’t just some esoteric field that only mathematicians use. At it’s core, its simply about logic. Math helps develop problem solving skills and is a great exercise in logical thinking. It helps develop your brain. Math is the way that we take the world and condense it into a form that we can work with and manipulate. Even if you ONLY care about everyday useful skills, that mindset can help solve a variety of everyday problems, even ones we don’t usually think of as requiring math. (Just as an example, I work at a job that requires a lot of different repetitive tasks done as quickly as possible and I use a lot of quick mental algebra every day when I’m trying to figure out the most efficient way to organize my time.)
TLDR; It’s fine if you don’t personally enjoy math. It’s fine if you find it challenging, or hate your class or the way it’s taught. But don’t say that’s pointless to learn, because it’s the basis of our entire society as it is today and saying you shouldn’t learn it just because you don’t write equations in your everyday life, is like saying you shouldn’t have to learn where the other continents are because you don’t plan on going there. There are some things about the world that any responsible adult should have a basic understanding of, and math is one of them. It also teaches problem solving and logical thinking.
I’m just gonna recirculate this for you kiara.
