120-mph

  • teens in a ya novels: we drove down the highway in my mom's stolen bmw going 120 mph and singing along to obscure japnese songs after pulling off the perfect robbery at fort knox
  • teens in real life: we had math homework???

Here’s proof that Black Lives Matter are a bunch of terrorists. 

Black Lives Matter activist Fausto Lopez was driving his car at almost 120 MPH when he was pulled over by a police officer. He was arrested for it. But because of his sense of entitlement, he believed that he should be able to get away with breaking the law, so he got 88 of his Black Lives Matter buddies to harass, stalk, and threaten the officer who arrested him.

Does that make you believe that Black Lives Matter are a terrorist organization?

Well guess what. Fausto Lopez is not a Black Lives Matter activist. He’s a police officer. His privilege as a police officer made him feel entitled to breaking the law and he expected other police officers to agree with him. But instead, one brave police officer dared to cross the thin blue line, and 88 cops got mad at her and decided to stalk, harass, and threaten her.

Does that make you believe that the police are a terrorist organization? If not, why not? You were perfectly fine with judging an entire group when you thought it was Black Lives Matter.

I wonder how many racist conservatives I can trick into reblogging this because they only read the first sentence.

A highway patrol trooper pulled over a Miami police officer who sped past her at 120 mph. Soon after, she was so relentlessly harassed that she contacted the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, only to find that her driver’s license information had been accessed by over 88 law enforcement officers more than 200 times in a three-month period.

how to take notes

hello! in celebration for 50 followers i’m doing my first masterpost! this is amazing to me, because thats more than twice the amount of people at my school. mind blown 

anyways, this post is about taking notes. now, to take the pretty notes that make our hearts flutter, most people start out with basic and even messy looking notes and then rewrite. personally, my classes go at a very slow pace and i write pretty quickly, so i have a basic template already copied into my notebook and ready to fill in during class. but, i’ve been in classes where the teacher talks at 120 mph and there’s no way you can take “good” notes in-class. so, here we go!

some pretty/helpful notes:

key:
^_^ = generic help
<3 = note type a example
:) = note type b example
✿ = note type c example

I. in class


step 1:

have a notebook/paper and supplies

  • pencils
  • eraser
  • notebook/paper
  • highlighter (optional)
  • yeah that’s pretty much it

step 2:

get writing!

  • if there are slides or a slideshow, you can ask the teacher to send you the slideshow. that way you don’t have to take notes on it. only do this if its a very nice teacher though!!
  • decide what is important.
  • if i’m going to re-write my notes at home, i like to write down everything the teacher says. then, at home i can choose what to include.
  •      pros: you get all the information and can learn more from your notes
  •      cons: its a lot of things to write down and your hand may cramp :(
  • you could also just write down what seems important
  •      pros: its a lot quicker and easier.
  •      cons: you may miss key information based on your judgement of the statement.

step 3:

categorize

  • have ways to tell the difference between information.
  • when i do this i have 2 pieces of paper on the desk.
  1. fold them in half.
  2. information paper:
  3. on one half write all the very important information.
  4. on the other write the other information.
  5. clarification paper
  6. on one half write all definitions.
  7. on the other write vocabulary or any other information.
  • you can also underline, circle, highlight, or any other distinctive markings to categorize information.

II. at home

step 1:

supplies!

  • pencils
  • notebook/loose leaf paper
  • erasers
  • pens
  • highlighters
  • mildliners
  • fineliners
  • any supplies can be substituted with whatever you have :)


step 2:

plan

  • since i re-write in pen (you can do whatever you’d like), i like to plan out the notes on another sheet of paper using pencil and then do the “real” thing when it looks perfect on the planning paper.
  • make sure you have a place for everything.
  • you don’t want to be writing everything in pen and then realize you forgot to leave space for definitions or something silly.


step 3:

drawing it out

  • of course, everyone has their own style, but there is a very common style on tumblr. this doesn’t include all types, but the 3 main types i see.

type a - cute-sy

  • bubble-y writing
  • a large ribbon banner as the title or all-caps highlight w/dark cursive through it
  • geometric/linear highlighted subhead
  • doodles scattered on paper 
  •      click  for examples 
  • ribbon/bubble/cloud/girly headers

type b - simple

  • neat writing (any writing style)
  • two different types of headers
  • very simple and plain
  • very artsy, complicated, and often cursive
  • literally thats it
  • its so easy and nice

type c - mind map

  • the most artistic/pretty (sometimes)
  • any writing style
  • start with bubble/cloud around title/topic
  • basically just make lines coming out
  • and connect them to more bubbles
  • you can do different shapes depending on the information type

step 4:

decorate

  • add doodles
  • highlight
  •      do this strategically
  •      if you only do it for aesthetics that can be really confusing
  • underline
  •      again
  •      make sure that what you are doing makes sense
  • use sticky notes/page flags

step 5:

studying

  • study however you might normally study
  •      or use the pomodoro technique
  •      there are lots of different ways to study that you could use
  • if you get bored
  •      take small breaks
  •      draw cute lil stick figures saying important info

This is not a depression.
This is cars speeding down the highway 120 mph at 4:30 on a Friday.
This is ‘oh god don’t crash don’t crash oh god’
This is looming disaster and knowing that you can’t stop but you can’t keep going either
This is your mothers tears when she watches you go from lower than the deep sea to manic in 0.3 seconds and the way her confused eyes can’t seem to decide which is worse
This is psychiatric unit 35, lunch at 12:30, no cans allowed.
This is pills pills floating on a sea of pills
Red and yellow and white to make me mellow calm normal alive
This is empty eyes and stained sheets and jesus christ I think I’m drowning.
This is a depression.
This is the truth.

This is not anxiety.
This is a humming bird heart flapping so hard it might just fly out of my chest cavities and up into the sky the clouds the open air
This is the tiger in the room that no one else can see but I promise you it’s there
This is sweaty palms and shallow breathing
This is ‘don’t talk to me don’t talk to me please please don’t talk to me’
This is the fear of death and the terror of living and what is worse the devil you know or the devil you don’t?
This is xanax klonazapam whatever else it takes to pull yourself out of the white blinding terror
This is rocking back and forth back and forth back and forth until you feel real again
This is worries worries worries
This is crazy girl, shaking girl, crying girl
This is anxiety
This is the truth.

These are mental illnesses
These are the truth behind the diagnosis’s that have come to define myself and so many others.
This is not a glamorous poem
This is a poem to make you understand how much it hurts.
This is a poem to tell you that saying ‘omg I was so depressed yesterday’ is not okay
This is a poem to tell you that anxiety is not cute or quirky or romantic
This is a gentle reminder that I am more than a statistic I am more than diagnostic criteria and my story is my own.
This is a not so gentle reminder that we are not crazy, we are sick. We are real.
Panic attacks are a big deal
Depression is serious.
Anxiety is life ruining.
This is a poem to tell you that glamorizing and faking these illnesses is despicable
This is the truth.

Ramblings of a fanboy

King Butterfly thought Star and Marco were dating but also showed he was okay with it. He could run at speeds of at least 120 mph so if he didn’t like Marco he could have easily taken Marco out. Also Marco didn’t deny it the first time. Also this show will be the death of me.

When Driver Error Becomes Programming Error

by Joel N. Shurkin, Inside Science

Ninety percent of automobile accidents now involve human error. If scientists succeed in producing computer-driven cars, responsibility may shift to programming errors. In that case, who sues whom? Who is liable?

Scientists working on computer-driven cars – so-called autonomous vehicles – are dealing with issues Henry Ford never worried about, and the technology is ahead of the law.

Google has several fully autonomous cars roaming the streets of California.

In some ways it already is happening by steps. Most new cars have anti-lock braking systems, self-adjusting cruise control, traction control, and computers that can slam on the brakes when it detects an imminent collision. The driver just enjoys the ride.

Meanwhile, experimental autonomous cars get better.

Closing Velocity And Injury Severity
Tweet

Trauma professionals, both prehospital and in trauma centers, make a big deal about “closing velocity” when describing motor vehicle crashes.  How important is this?

So let me give you a little quiz to illustrate the concept:

Two cars, of the same make and model, are both traveling on a two lane highway at 60 mph in opposite directions. Car A crosses the midline and strikes Car B head-on. This is the same as:

  1. Car A striking a wall at 120 mph
  2. Car B striking a wall at 60 mph
  3. Car A striking a wall at 30 mph

External image

The closing velocity is calculated by adding the head-on components of both vehicles. Since the cars struck each other exactly head-on, this would be 60+60 = 120 mph. If the impact is angled there is a little trigonometry involved, which I will avoid in this example. And if there is a large difference in mass between the vehicles, there are some other calculation nuances as well.

So a closing velocity of 120 mph means that the injuries are worse than what you would expect from a car traveling at 60 mph, right?

Wrong!

In this example, since the masses are the same, each vehicle would come to a stop on impact because the masses are equal. This is equivalent to each vehicle striking a solid wall and decelerating from 60 mph to zero immediately. Hence, answer #2 is correct. If you remember your physics, momentum must be conserved, so both of these cars can’t have struck each other at the equivalent of 120 mph. The injuries sustained by any passengers will be those expected in a 60 mph crash.

If you change the scenario a little so that a car and a freight train are traveling toward each other at 60 mph each, the closing velocity is still 120 mph. However, due the the fact that the car’s mass is negligible compared to the train, it will strike the train, decelerate to 0, then accelerate to -60 mph in mere moments. The train will not slow down a bit. For occupants of the car, this would be equivalent to striking an immovable wall at 120 mph. The injuries will probably be immediately fatal for all.

Bottom line: Closing velocity has little relationship to the injuries sustained for most passenger vehicle crashes. Those injuries will be consistent with the speed of the vehicle the occupants were riding, and not the sum of the velocities of the vehicles.
