i think its kinda of silly how tv shows and movies portray the “smart kid” as someone who can do these ridiculously hard math problems that arent realistic for the child’s age. like, theyre ten?? like if they know how to divide big numbers or name every single president of the united states, then theyre already a smart cookie. it just shows children that they have to be able to do college level bullshit to be considered above average???? and why do they always have them show their intelligence through math?? why do they have to be good at EVERYTHING scholarly??? like some one could be excel in history but be poor in other classes and still be the smartest guy around. why do yall gotta go around lowkey putting standards on children like that??

The Signs as Back-To-School Supplies

A notebook to write down your misery: Gemini, Scorpio, Pisces

A stapler to staple yourself with: Aries, Taurus, Sagittarius

A calculator to calculate the amount of stupidity in your class: Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius

A backpack to carry the weight of your problems:  Cancer, Leo, Libra

An average human lifespan is 78 years, which is about 2.46 billion seconds.

A blink of an eye is about a third of a second, or (1/7.38 billionth) of a lifetime.

So now we have a measurement for “a blink of an eye”

For example, a Sequoia Tree has a lifespan of 3500 years, so its “blink of an eye” is 15 seconds.

A “blink of an eye” for the Mesozoic Era is a little over 9 days

Our sun’s “blink of an eye” is 1.35 years.
How to calculate an ROI on Social Media

For calculating the return on investments from social media, you may not need a calculator. This is not to say that it is insignificant. However, the equations that govern the rate of return from social media are not in direct figures, but in benefits that accrue over time

Together we are everything: strong, kind, ruthless, loyal, smart, stupid, ugly, lustful, mean, fickle, beautiful, calculating, lazy, exuberant, weak.
We are good and evil.
Like you.
Like all.

Calculating Body Fat Percentage

** DISCLAIMER: My numbers are probably off since you need an accurate measurement of your wrist and I didn’t have measuring tape with me

Okay so this is a step by step process of how to find out your body fat percentage and what ranges would be healthy for you. Now this is just an estimate but it gives you a good idea of what you need to aim for.

First: I filled in all the information this website asks for:

I am 136 pound female, with a waist of 28", a wrist size of (I guessed) 5", hips that are 36", and a forearm that measures 9". It calculated my body fat at 25.97%. After you calculate your body fat percentage you can click on their body fat chart to see what it means. 25.97% puts me in the ‘Acceptable’ range.

Second: I wanted to find out how much of my weight was lean body mass and how much of it was fat. I multiplied my weight by my body fat percentage. And then I subtracted that number from my weight.

136 x 0.2597 = 35.3192 pounds fat

136 - 35.3192 = 100.6808 pounds lean body mass (lbm)

Of course you want to keep 10-12% of your body fat to be healthy so you definitely don’t want to loose ALL of it. I wouldn’t want to loose all 35.3192 pounds of fat just enough of it to be healthy.

Third: I wanted to target a specific percent of body fat that I would like to be. I chose 14% because it’s on the lower end of the 'Athletes’ range. So what I did is I took my current weight and multiplied it by 14%. Then to find out how much weight that would be, add the pounds lbm to your pounds body fat.

136 x 0.14 = 19.04 pounds body fat

100.6808 + 19.04= 119.72 ideal weight pounds

This gives me an estimate of a healthy goal weight for my specific body type.

Finally: I wanted to find out how much weight I would lose to get to that so I just subtracted my ideal weight from my current weight.

136 - 119.72= 16.28 pounds to lose

Hope that helped!
