Can you fucking imagine if Michelle Obama lied about her college education and wanted to remain in Chicago for “her kids”?

White privilege at its finest. Michelle and her TWO kids moved to DC when the time called and adjusted. Republicans have been bitching about her security for years. Melania Trump can’t make her ONE (TEN YEAR OLD) kid change prep schools and is going to cost us all a fortune as a result. Trump spent years claiming Obama wasn’t even American, meanwhile his wife worked here illegally. And she lied about her education. Yet everyone insists on treating her with kid gloves while her husband preaches anti-immigration and paints immigrants as moochers and criminals. BUT SHE IS LITERALLY GOING TO COST THE TAX PAYERS A SHIT LOAD TO REMAIN IN HER LITERAL FUCKING GOLD TOWER. SHE EVEN SPONGES HER FUCKING SPEECHES OFF AMERICANS.

The Obamas literally had to turn in multiple birth certificates to prove Barack is an American. Meanwhile, there’s all this ACTUAL EVIDENCE that Melania came and worked here illegally. And she just removed any mention of her claims of having a degree from her bio (you know, because contrary to her prior claims, she never got a degree).

THIS IS WHAT WHITE PRIVILEGE IS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

“Amethyst ?”
“Yeah P ?”
“You know you’re my partner in time right ?”
“..heh, as long as you’re my partner in crime~

Your video of the day: Watch five glorious minutes of Donald Trump contradicting himself before and after his Presidential run

The video is especially great in light of Trump’s loss of the popular vote. Recently Donald Trump tweeted effusive support for the electoral college, calling it “genius.” Of course four years ago when Obama won, he was singing a hilariously different tune.

Things You Are Told In High School About College Vs. Reality
  • What you're told: You can't come to class late in college. The doors will be locked the minute the class starts and the teacher won't let you in.
  • Reality: Literally every teacher in college leaves the door unlocked and do not give a single crap about you being late as long as you don't take forever to sit and don't disrupt the class by making useless noise.
  • What you're told: Anxiety and learning problems aren't taken into consideration in college. You will have the same amount of time than every other student to complete your exams and assignments.
  • Reality: When you are diagnosed with a learning problem, you are allowed to have 50% more time to finish an exam (example: normal exam is 3 hours, you have 4.5 hours to finish it) and you are given a computer to make sure you don't make a million mistakes. If you have anxiety, you can do your exam alone in a room.
  • What you're told: Teachers won't care about your problems.
  • Reality: Teachers will help you find the resources you need to get through tough times and will always offer time to listen to you and try to find solutions with you.
  • What you're told: If you can't keep up with the class, the teacher won't help you. They have other students too.
  • Reality: Teachers will answer every single one of your questions even if they sound stupid.
  • What you're told: You have to learn how to organise your time because they won't show you that in college.
  • Reality: They pay people to show you how to do that.
  • What you're told: College won't help you with problems that don't involve your education.
  • Reality: College offers you money to leave your abusive household, pay for an appartment and your tuition without going to court, they also make sure your parents can't have any contact with you ; college pays psychologists and social workers so you can have free therapy ; college organises group therapy for rape victims, bully victims, or any victim of any sort of abuse.
  • What you're told: You need to have straight A's if you want to be accepted in the program you want.
  • Reality: Your grades just need to be above the average for you to be considered a good student.
  • What you're told: College won't help you if you get bullied, they do not care less.
  • Reality: Bullies get expelled forever if they physically or sexualy assult someone or if they are considered a threat to their victims' well-being.
  • What you're told: People will judge you if you're being yourself. You have to fit in social norms.
  • Reality: People will judge you if you aren't being yourself. Trust me, they know when you're pretending.

University/College AUs
  • I came 5 minutes late to the lecture and you’re sitting in my back corner seat and now i don’t know what to do
  • you’re the annoying person in my class who needs to tell everyone in the class your thoughts on something and I’d hate you but you gave me ideas for my past 2 essays in this course
  • we always get coffee at the same time everyday before class and i’m too scared to talk to you because “holy shit are those med textbooks???”
  • you’re the student dentist at the school’s dentist surgery so please don’t mess up my teeth
  • you keep catching me looking at your notes and i’d apologise but i won’t mean it and i’ll keep on doing it until the lecturer stops SPEAKING SO DAMN FAST
  • you fell asleep at your computer in the 24/7 library but you’ve been typing “ggggggggggggg” for the past hour and it’s kind of ruining your essay so i woke you up
  • “did you actually walk into the centre of the great court and scream fuck? why?”
  • you hit me in the head with your stupid frisbee and kind of broke my already-broken glasses more
  • “i’m sorry to bother you but do you have a university approved calculator i could borrow right now so i don’t fail my exam?” 

@logicalabsurdity I don’t know how they wanted you to calculate it but I just invented an approximation of square roots of imperfect squares; short answer is you find the next lowest integer square root and then slap the difference between its square and yr number over twice itself and stick that on the end of itself, e.g. the square root of 71 is 8 and 7/16

This method is less accurate for smaller numbers and numbers that are closer to the next highest perfect square, because it depends on the fractional part being negligible compared to twice the whole part which is less true when the fractional part is close to 1 and very less true when the whole part is close to 1

Just an example of that, the approximation for the square root of 71 is off by 0.13% but the approximation (1.5) for the square root of 2 (1.4142) is off by 6.1% and the approximation (2) for the square root of 3 (1.7321) is off by 15% and then the approximation (2.25) for the square root of 5 (2.2361) is back down to 0.62% off
