Dilettante Fascination

Main themes of this blog: ANIME and SCIENCE. Although I like plenty of things which may show up from time to time. Like Doctor Who. Or Sherlock. Or Supernatural. Or Steins;Gate. Or Persona 3/4.

New York City’s five boroughs first became Jeff Chen-Hsing Liao’s subjects when he moved to the U.S. from Taiwan in 1999 at the age of 22.

It was the city’s ever-changing landscape that fascinated the young photographer. “Every other week, you go to the same spot and something’s different,” Liao tells Newsweek. “New York is one of the most diverse cities—there are so many different cultures that blend into New York.”

To capture that culture, he photographed the same spot over the course of a day and combined the images.

See more of Liao’s images at Newsweek.com

This is one of those ideas where some person was like “Hehe, this might  be silly.” And then struck fucking gold.

They were only allowed to bring one sheet to the physics exam…

I’m in awe.

I was only allowed one index card—-or was that orgo? I Forget which was which.

I used to design equation sheets like this.

Tragicomic: Adults try 5th-grade math. Recover with Love and Math

(HT Doobybrain)

Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

No, apparently you probably aren’t, at least not when it comes to basic math.

On the other hand, adults have jobs and paychecks and can buy smartphones with calculators in them so maybe we get the last laugh because although there’s probably a good case for learning it in 5th grade, long division and adding fractions is an extremely illogical skill to carry into your adult life. I took ten years of college between undergrad and grad school, and I did long division precisely zero times ever.

Albert Einstein once said of the memorization of physical constants: “[I do not] carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books.” That.

This is still really tragicomic, though. Because if you look at it as a metaphor for knowledge and retention of education in general, you start to weep a little as you laugh.

I did get these right though, I promise :)

Saw that Columbia student walking around with that mattress today. She certainly is keeping up the good fight, but is she always being followed around by a video camera?

I feel like I’ve been preparing for this image all my life.



The internet is over, everyone can go home

It’s just as beautiful as I always imagined.


My life is complete.

Life is over as we know it
