I seriously love my female manager? She’s my Queen B. She talks to me like a normal human being, and said if I keep learning faster, I can move up and work at the counter! Her conversations usually go about “yeah, I hate people” “fuck that guy” “don’t stress about it”. She’s simply amazing. She was working as a server with me and gave me $25 in tips! Who the fuck does that!? I just wanna work with her, she has a great attitude with the employee and shit. :)

I love my mother, but she annoys the living hell out of me. She was worried that the earthquake that happen here in NorCal impacted me in some way. But, if she did a little research she could have investigated that the earthquake happen at 3:30am when we were both talking on the phone on that day. Soooo how are you freaking out if I’m fine, if we were talking on the phone when the earthquake happen. Like, seriously? Obviously the earthquake didn’t really affect Santa Cruz if I didn’t feel it. She keeps texting me saying if I’m fine multiple times and I keep replying to her with yes I’m fine. If you repeat things to me over and over and over again; I get frustrated. Like, why you gotta annoy me if I keep texting back! Basically;
1st: do your research
2nd: don’t annoy me with the same message
3rd: if I sent you a text saying I’m fine, then that probably means I’m fine.

girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together

"Women are, in particular, sort of sold this concept of beauty in magazines and everything like that, and I hope to articulate the fact that I started off as a boy, and I’m dressed up as a woman. I hope women can see how beauty is created, and how I’m literally creating the illusion of a woman, and that’s what many women are doing as well. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with beauty or that illusion, but I think the issue is that people think it’s real."

Chaos and the Double Pendulum
A chaotic system is one in which infinitesimal differences in the starting conditions lead to drastically different results as the system evolves.
Summarized by mathematician Edward Lorenz, ”Chaos [is] when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.”
There’s an important distinction to make between a chaotic system and a random system. Given the starting conditions, a chaotic system is entirely deterministic. A random system, on the other hand, is entirely non-deterministic, even when the starting conditions are known. That is, with enough information, the evolution of a chaotic system is entirely predictable, but in a random system there’s no amount of information that would be enough to predict the system’s evolution.
The simulations above show two slightly different initial conditions for a double pendulum — an example of a chaotic system. In the left animation both pendulums begin horizontally, and in the right animation the red pendulum begins horizontally and the blue is rotated by 0.1 radians (≈ 5.73°) above the positive x-axis. In both simulations, all of the pendulums begin from rest.

When I’m drugged, I always want to be in control. For example, I would drink a gallon of water before I go to bed. However, it would usually do nothing because if I had a lot to drink (like last night) I’ll vomit everything out.
