Got a Silencerco ASR muzzle brake tonight. I’ll probably run this rifle with the EoTech for the next two weeks before ranger school seeing as it wouldn’t make sense for me to buy the razor yet. She’s slowly being pieced together.

Still need a Vortex Razor HD GenII 1-6x, Atlas bipod, and a Geissele DMR trigger.

Brownells employee David R talks his @sigsauerinc on Sunday Gunday! “This is my Sig Sauer 556xi in 7.62x39mm that I use most often when I shoot in 3 gun competitions. The AR-15 platform is great, but I like to remind people that other firearms can fill the same role in addition to being flat out fun to shoot. This rifle is set up for 3 gun with a Vortex 1-6x optic in an Aero Precision mount, offset BUIS, @silencerco ASR muzzle brake, and @magpul AFG. Unfortunately, Sig Sauer recently stopped offering this platform of rifles for sale. That makes me even more of a gun hipster when I use it!”

September 13th

“Good afternoon Juliet.” James said as we stood in the hallway. He handed me a page he copied of the script and I read it with him. It was quite a popular part, so popular I even remembered.

“James! You did great!” I smiled and pulled him into a hug.

“You really think so?”

“Yes! I can’t believe how emotional you were.”

“Excuse me.”

James moved aside and turned around. Mr. Winchester stood a few feet away looking at us with his eyebrows curved in confusion.

“Shouldn’t you two be in class?” he asked.

“No. We just had lunch. Sara was helping me learn my lines for an audition.”

“Oh, an audition? What for?” Mr. Winchester asked.

“Romeo and Juliet at the Ritz Theatre downtown.” James responded.

“Nice, nice. Well, sounds like you’re ready then!” Mr. Winchester stated. James nodded, then widened his eyes.

“Shoot. I forgot, principal Duvoe wanted to see me.”

“Okay, see ya! Text me how it goes!” I called after him. I turned back around to face Mr. Winchester and he motioned to his classroom.

“Take a seat.” He smiled as the bell rang. I walked into the room and eventually Alanah came in and sat a packet of Taco Bell’s hot sauce that read, “Nice palm. I read a great deal of pleasure in your future.” I laughed and shook my head.

“Dare you to leave it on his desk and wink.” She said.

“Whose?”

She nodded to Mr. Winchester and my eyes widened.

“I have someone else in mind that won’t earn me a detention.” I said looking over to James. I quickly walked over and placed it on his desk with a wink and the bell rang as he picked it up. Quickly, I returned to my desk, but not quick enough.

“Mr. Michaels, what’s been passed to you?” Mr. Winchester asked eyeing me. I put my head down as James held up the sauce packet. Mr. Winchester walked over, read it, and returned his attention to me. “Right.” He nodded. Everything seemed to turn into a blur as I peeked up at him and he took the packet to his desk. “First row, up to the board.” He instructed. We began reviewing for our quiz tomorrow and my row was next. They went through the first problem, no issues at all. However, I am in no way a good mathematician. Math and I are on opposing sides. I stood next to Alanah as we walked up to the board and grabbed a piece of chalk.

“100x2-6x+1+5= 10. Solve for x.” Mr. Winchester instructed. I stood there for a moment and stared blankly at the problem. I peeked over at Alanah to see she was almost done. I sighed, circled the x in the problem, and wrote “found” before returning to my seat. Mr. Winchester walked around the room and helped those of them sitting at their seats. After we all sat down he walked up to the board and corrected the ones on the board. He reached mine and actually smirked a little, before looking at the ground.

“Miss. Williams, I would like to speak with you after class.” He said. He started to explain the problem to us since we were all quite confused. As he corrected one of the other student’s problems on the board, he peeked over at mine and smirked again. He shook his head and cleared his throat. “Sorry. I lost my train of thought.” He said.

“It’s okay, there were no important passenger on board.” I responded. I couldn’t believe I actually said that. A few people in the room laughed and Mr. Winchester’s stern look vanished after someone snorted. The bell rang and Mr. Winchester sighed,

“Be sure to study! I’m here after school if any of you have questions. Yes, I’m here after football practice. Miss. Williams, we need to have a chat.” He said. Alanah and James filed out with the rest of the class while I collected my things. I approached Mr. Winchester and he eyed me carefully.

“Did I do something? You’ve been one of my nicest students so far and now you’re mouthing off.” He said. I felt something really strange pulsing through me, adrenaline-like.

“I-I don’t know.” I shrugged.

“I’m half temped to call your mother.” He said.

“Well, if she picks up you should tell her to come home.” I frowned leaning against one of the desks across from his. He froze for a moment and his face turned sympathetic.

“Oh. I’m- I’m so sorry.” He began as he leaned back against his own desk. “What… what happened?”

“She died. Breast cancer, I guess.”

“I’m really sorry… Just you and your father then?” he asked and I nodded in response. “Both of my parents are gone.” He suddenly shared.

“What happened?”

“Fire. My dad told me to take my younger brother and run. I thought they were coming…” he trailed off and shook his head. “I understand how you feel. If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here.” He said.

“Thank you, very much.”

“Any time.” He said and we stood in silence for a moment before he pointed to my math problem that was still on the board. “Were you trying to be funny or do you not know how to do this?” he asked.

“Um… I am struggling-,”

“Get out a piece of paper.” He instructed and motioned to the desk I leaned against. He pulled his chair around his desk and up next to the desk I sat at. I wrote the problem on my paper and he sat next to me.

We stayed after for two hours before his classroom phone rang. He furrowed his eyebrows as he walked over to his desk and answered the phone.

“Hello?” he asked. I scurried to collect my belongings, but he held his hand out to me; motioning for me to wait. “I’m fine. Helping a student. Okay. I’ll come over in a bit. Bye.” He said and hung up. Who was that? Did he have a girlfriend? What if I’ve kept him from-.

“So do you understand better?” he asked.

“Yeah. Thank you. I’m sorry for keeping you-,”

“No. It was my uncle, no big deal.” He shrugged. I nodded and shifted where I stood. His eyes lingered on mine before escaping to my lips for a moment. I looked away and nodded.

“I’ll see you tomorrow.” I smiled.

“Yeah. See ya.” He responded.

I drove home and my dad walked out the front door.

“Where have you been? I called you three times!” he said.

“Sorry. I stayed after with my math teacher. I’ve been struggling…”

“Okay. Try to call me next time. I gotta head into the station.” He said. I nodded and walked back inside. The phone rang back in my dad’s office as I closed the front door. I ran down the hall and slid into his office swiftly snatching the phone off his desk.

“Hello?” I breathed.

“Um… is this Sara?”

“Yeah, who’s this?”

“Hey, it’s Mr. Winchester. I just wanted to apologize to your dad for keeping you late.” He said.

“Just missed him. He’s heading to work.” I said taking the phone with me as I left his office and made my way to my room.

“Oh. What’s he do?”

“He’s a Sheriff…”

“Oh. That’s gotta be nice.”

“It’s alright. Are you still at the school?”

“No. I just got home. I jotted your house number down before I left.”

“Okay, while I have you on the phone… Question,” I began.

“I’ll answer.”

“How difficult is this quiz tomorrow?” I asked with a small laugh.

“Challenging, but I think you can handle it.” He answered. I shouldn’t still be talking to him, but in all honesty, I love his voice.

“Are you sure?”

“I believe in you.”

“Thanks. Now I’ll feel bad if I let you down.”

“If you do, you just get to spend more time with me after school.” He said and I felt my heart flutter. He should not have said that.

“We don’t want that.”

“I don’t mind.” He said. Mentally, I could imagine the smirk on his face and the slight shrug of his broad shoulders.

“I do. I need to pass!” I laughed.

“That’s true.” He responded. I heard Head of the Moment by Asia in the background and I jumped on the opportunity.

“Is that Heat of the Moment by Asia? I love that song!” I gushed.

“Yeah. You know that?” he asked.

“You sound surprised.”

“I guess I shouldn’t have been. You’ve worn some great band t-shirts.” He said and I smirked.

“You’ve noticed?” I asked. I felt beyond flattered.

“Of course! The Beatles, ACDC, Van Halen, Rolling Stones, Kiss, you’ve got some good ones.” He said.

“Why thank you,” I replied.

“Do you actually listen to all of them?”

“Yeah, and then some.” I admitted.

“I was wondering… you weren’t singing any 80s rock the other night in the car…”

“Oh, shush! I can’t geek out with my fellow generation!” I laughed. I heard his deep chuckle then he spoke,

“You’re amazing.” He blurted. My face heated up and I heard him clear his throat. “I mean you are, but I shouldn’t have-,”

“No. It’s fine.” I interrupted.

“Right… uh, wow it’s late. I’m gonna let you go.” He said.

“Alright.” I responded feeling a pout form on my lips.

“Goodnight Sara.”

Jumping Spider Crochet Pattern

Hi!  I got a few asks wondering about a pattern for my jumping spider!  I made up the pattern myself, but it’s fairly simple and I’m kinda interested to share with others!  I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook and Red Heart Yarn in “Day Glow”, but I’m sure with a project like this people can be very creative with their choices!  If anyone uses this pattern, please link back to my page, don’t sell things you’ve made with this pattern, and also send me a picture!  I’d love to see what people do!

Head:

  • 6 sc in a magic circle
  • inc 6x to make 12 stitches
  • 1 sc, inc 6x to make 18 stitches
  • 2 sc, inc 6x to make 24 stitches
  • 3 sc, inc 6x to make 30 stitches
  • 4 sc inc 6x to make 36 stitches
  • 6 rows of 36 stitches
  • 4 sc, dec 6x to make 30 stitches
  • 3 sc, dec 6x to make 24 stitches
  • add eyes - I used 12mm, 9mm, and 6mm - I looked at a lot of pictures online to decide what the eye arrangements should be - jumping spiders have a very distinctive arrangement, but if you want to go for another style feel free!
  • 2 sc, dec 6x to make 18 stitches
  • 1 sc, dec 6x to make 12 stitches
  • 6 dec to make 6 stitches
  • close off w more decreases
  • add pedipalps/chelicerae (aka those little face pincer things): 6 sc in a magic circle, 3 rows of 6, and sew on - this is a place where I went fairly ambiguous with the actual spider parts, I think it could be improved upon!

Body:

  • 6 sc in a magic circle
  • inc 6x to make 12 stitches
  • do another row of 12 stitches (to elongate the abdomen slightly)
  • 1 sc, inc 6x to make 18 stitches
  • 2 sc, inc 6x to make 24 stitches
  • 3 sc, inc 6x to make 30 stitches
  • 8 rows of 30 stitches
  • 3 sc, dec 6x to make 24 stitches
  • 2 sc, dec 6x to make 18 stitches
  • 1 sc, dec 6x to make 12 stitches
  • 6 dec to make 6 stitches
  • 2 rows of 6 stitches (to make the waist)
  • attach to head

Legs (you know what you have to do! make 8 of them!!):

  • 6 sc in a magic circle
  • ~20 rows of 6 (basically make them as long as you want!)

I had to taper the legs off at the end by doing some decreases, so they would all fit under the head as the cephalothorax - Spiders have such interesting anatomy!  

I then sewed on all the legs, and used a combination of stitching with yarn (to make the bend in the middle of the leg) and a hot glue gun (keeping the legs close to the head) to pose the legs.  (She looks like a dead spider here, don’t fret, little cutie!)

And that’s it!  I guess if someone tries this and comes up with questions, feel free to ask me!  I wrote this more for people who are familiar with crocheting amigurumis, but there are lots of resources out there for beginners!

I’m pretty pleased with how this spider turned out - I think it’s a good combination of real spider anatomy and “cute-ification” - to be fair though, jumping spiders are just so cute in general!  I hope this results in more cute crocheted spiders in the world!

(Wir sind nah. Nah.)
(Ja 6x)
(Wir sind nah. Nah.)
Die Leute reden und reden, ey.
Doch ich hör’ einfach nicht hin.
Denn mein Weg kann keiner bestimmen außer mir selbst.
Also geht mir aus dem Weg, ja?
Weg, ja?
Denn ich weiß selbst, wohin es geht, ja?
Geht, ja?
Und ich hab’ keine Zeit für Zweifel.
Denn Zeit gibt’s leider nie genug auf meiner Reise, ja?
Und es lohnt sich in keiner Weise,
Das ganze Leben lang auf einem Gleis zu bleiben.
Denn ich will überall hin, ha!
Ich war viel zu lang blind, ha!
Ich geb’ alles, was mir nicht passt
und mach’ nur das, was ich will, ha?!
Jeden Tag mit der Clique
auch wenn’s keinem gefällt.
Hauptsache wir feiern es selbst!

(HOOK)
Taddl:
Es geht mir besser denn je.
Es geht raus aus dem Dunkeln,
denn jetzt kenn’ ich den Weg!

Ardy:
Ja, ja, ja! Und ich lauf’ so wie Forrest!
Ich hab’ das Ziel vor Augen
und ich lauf’ so wie Forrest!

Taddl:
Es geht mir besser denn je.
Es geht raus aus dem Dunkeln,
denn jetzt kenn’ ich den Weg!

Ardy:
Ja, ja, ja! Und ich lauf’ so wie Forrest!
Lass’ alles steh'n und liegen
und ich lauf’ so wie Forrest!

(VERSE 2)
Taddl:
Egal, was sie meinen!
Auch wenn es keinem gefällt.
Ey, wir feiern es selbst!
“Life’s too short” um nur die Fehler zu sehen
Und die Sprache, in der ich denke,
Muss nicht jeder versteh'n!
Ey, die Uhr tickt! Die Uhr tickt!
Und ich nutze A) meine Zeit!
Wenn schon jede Tür für mich offen steht,
Muss ich überall rein! (Rein!)
Eine handvoll junge Dudes
mit dem Kopf voller Ideen.
Das Leben ist wie ein Film, 
es kann noch alles geschehen!
Also, schnapp’ ich Popcorn!
Lehn’ mich zurück und genieße die Show! (Show!)
Renn’ dem pünktlich hinterher.
Ich hab’ es gefangen und lass’ nie wieder los!
Bin schon weiter, viel weiter,
als ich je erwartet hab’.
Eigentlich unglaublich,
Dass es bis hier erst der Anfang war!

(HOOK)
Taddl:
Es geht mir besser denn je.
Es geht raus aus dem Dunkeln,

(AUTOTUNE TIEFE STIMME)

Ardy:
(Ich lauf’ 4x)
Und ich lauf’,
Ich lauf’ immer schneller!
Lass’ mich nicht bremsen, nein!
Ich bleib’ nicht stehen,
muss jetzt weitergehen!
Immer weiter! (-ter 5x)
Tage vergehen.
Mir tut’s weh,
den Ziel schon so nahe zu sehen.
Muss nicht traurig sein, 
immer nur am Rande zu stehen!

Taddl:
Doch ich schau’ erst gar nicht hin! (-hin 4x)
Hinter mir, was sich immer mehr zeigt
Ich lauf’, ich lauf’ und die Geschwindigkeit steigt!

Ardy:
Es gibt kein zurück (-rück x1)
Rückzug kommt nicht infrage,
Egal, was ich im Weg liegen hab’
Werden Steine zu Mauern,
Dann heb’ ich ab! (Ab 4x)
Now, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Jaaaa, ja, ah, ah, jaaaa.

anonymous asked:

I should probably stop reading ABoT in the middle of calculus but how can I when Chrissy updated while I was asleep and I've got to read it asap??? (AlsoimscreamingpoorTetsuoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh)

(A Breach of Trust: Chapter 10)

aksakjsdkjds that’s not good for your academic career anon!

what you (maybe) (probably) (possibly) missed in calculus

Calculus is about rates of change! As a simple example: speed (well, velocity). “10 miles per hour” means your position changes 10 miles in the span of 1 hour. That’s a rate of change. That’s well and good as a description, but calculus takes it to an art by describing a rate at an infinitesimally small span of time. You may have been going 10 mph on average, but calculus can tell you your exact, pinpoint speed at a single moment of time.

derivative of a single parameter

with a simple equation made only of a constant in front of the variable to a power (for example y(x) = 3x^2, where 3 is the constant, x is the variable, and “2″ is the power) you find the derivative by subtracting 1 from the power, and multiplying the old power by the constant. So for  y(x) = 3x^2, the derivative is  dy(x)/dx = (2*3)x^(2-1) = 6x^1 = 6x

What does this mean, exactly? The function of y(x) = 3x^2 is a parabola. As you move along x to the right, the y value is going to change too. Its slope describes its change. So the slope of this parabola at any position is given by 6x. What’s the slope of the parabola at position (1,3)? Well x=1, slope=6x=6*1, the slope is 6. The slope when x=0 is 0, the slope when x=6 is 36. This means that, as a ratio, at position (1,3), for every step to the right you move, you also move 6 steps up. Remember though a slope is instantaneous, so the very act of stepping to the right changes your slope. This is why calculus, and not algebra, is needed to address these problems.

If you have several terms, separated by a “+” or a “-”, you take their derivatives individually

y(x) = 2x^4 + 4x^6 -> dy(x)/dx = 8x^3 + 24x^5

(note: y’(x) = dy(x)/dx from here on out to save on bulky notation)

product rule

If you have two functions multiplied together, say f(x) = e^(2x), g(x) = sin(x), and y(x) = f(x)*g(x) = e^(2x) * sin(x), a special rule applies to finding the x derivative of y(x).

It is as follows

  • y’(x) = (f(x)*g(x))’ =  f(x)* g’(x)  +   f’(x) *g(x)

In English: if you’re multiplying two distinct things let’s call them “a” and “b”, and need the derivative, you take the derivative of a, multiply it by b. You also take the derivative of b and multiply it by a. You then add these two values

The derivative of  e^(2x) is  2*e^(2x) (special property of e). The derivative of sin(x) is cos(x).

y’(x) =  (e^(2x)) * (cos(x)) +   (2*e^(2x)) * (sin(x))

chain rule

If you have a function of a function, say f(x) = sin(x), and g(x) = 2x^2, and y(x) = f(g(x)) = sin(2x^2), a special rule applies to finding the x derivative of y(x).

y’(x) = (f(g(x)))’ =  f’(g(x))* g’(x) 

In English: You take the derivative of the outter part first, leaving the inner part in tact. The outter part of sin(2x^2) is the sin function, the derivative of sin(x) is cos(x) so this becomes cos(2x^2). Then look inside, and take the derivative of the inside function. The derivative of 2x^2 is 4x. You take this and multiply it to the first result. cos(2x^2) *  4x.

y’(x) =  cos(2x^2) *  4x


….I don’t know why I did this. Anyway I’m glad you like A Breach of Trust!
