Would you rather do nothing and become filthy rich in a day, or work tirelessly for years and never get paid?

Situation A
(E₁) Effort = 0
(Δp₁) Profit = 100

Situation B
(E₂) Effort = 100
(Δp₂) Profit = 0

Where values for E and Δp are treated as percentages for the sake of this argument and their limits are:
0 ≤ E ≤ 100
0 ≤ Δp ≤ 100

If we use the equation for Work (W = FΔd) as a base to infer our own equivalent bullshit quantities and derive a new comparable equation, we can then use it to solve for Satisfaction.

Work (W) ≈ Satisfaction (S)
Work = The measure of energy that occurs when an object is moved over a distance by a force
Satisfaction = The appreciation of earning something that occurs when a person achieves a profit through an effort

Force (F) ≈ Effort (E)
Force = Energy as an attribute of movement
Effort = Earning as an attribute of achievement

Displacement (Δd) ≈ Profit (Δp)
Displacement = The difference between the final and initial position
Profit = The difference between the final and initial wealth

(W = FΔd) (S = EΔp)
“Work is equal to force times displacement” is approximately equal to “Satisfaction is equal to effort times profit”

Where the limits for S are:
0 ≤ S ≤ 100²

According to this Satisfaction equation: in a worst case scenario low effort and low profit will yield the lowest satisfaction value, greater than or equal to 0; whereas in a best case scenario high effort and high profit will result in the highest magnitude of satisfaction, less than or equal to 10000. Interestingly, when both variables are made inversely proportional to one another the highest satisfaction value that can be reached is only when effort and profit are equal, E = 50 and Δp = 50, and is ¼th the maximum possible satisfaction value attainable in the best case scenario. However, in our particular case, both situations will result in 0 satisfaction since multiplying anything by 0 will always yield 0 product:

Situation A
S₁ = E₁Δp₁ → 0 = (0)(100)

Situation B
S₂ = E₂Δp₂ → 0 = (100)(0)

In conclusion:
You can’t appreciate a reward without earning it through work and you can’t appreciate work done without earning any reward for doing it, therefore:

Situation A = Situation B

Have you ever wanted to erase the past so badly that you’d be okay with losing your memory altogether?

His Mind Created the Perfect Metaphor

Dear BBC Sherlock community,

Ever since Sherlock series 4 came out, collectively we were like “what the HELL is this?!?! This doesn’t make any sense!” BUT after many months of tossing ideas around the fandom, we have made theories that could explain the weirdness, but nothing we can all agree on. Now, this meta here may be absolute garbage to you, but I believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ve solved it. Please read it in its entirety with an open mind before you reblog it just to tell me I suck.

Thanks in advance, you da best


Here’s the short version: Sherlock actually jumped at the end of The Reichenbach Fall, just as Doyle intended him to die. Gatiss and Moffat said they are correcting something in this adaptation that no one else has gotten right before. Many of us assumed the homosexual romance was the one thing they were changing, but we were punched in the face right after The Final Problem came out.  Gatiss and Moffat are changing the sacrifice. Holmes was intended to die for his friends but Doyle needed more money and rewrote the series after “The Final Problem”. That turned Holmes’ sacrifice into a cruel joke against Watson. This is what BBC Sherlock is fixing, and we’re about to see it come to fruition.

I know many theorists despise the homosexual reading of Holmes and Watson, while many people in general despise theorists on this site. That’s fine, I don’t care how people feel about gay theories and/or TJLC and its followers.  But I’m here to tell you TJLC, at its core as a concept, was right. You may hate Moffat and Gatiss, you may think Sherlock is a piece of shit show, and that’s fine, you do you. But hear this one meta out, please. I think even the hardest skeptic can at least apprectiate the thought and logic behind this.
