HOW?!

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

I know I get all worked up about small insignificant things, but who doesn’t. This time it’s this stupid picture with a maths problem, making rounds on facebook. Yes, you know where this is going.

4×4 + 4×4 + 4 – 4×4

Equals what?

Yes, 20, I know. Most of my friends know this, but a good bunch of insufferable oafs don’t. And what is their excuse? No parenthesis! What in the name of Satan really? I know the rule in Finnish (we don’t have a nice rhyme for it tho) and as it happens, I know it in English as well. It’s please excuse my dear aunt sally and it comes from parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. This is the order of which the problem should be solved, from left to right, like you’d read. In this case, there are no parenthesis, no exponents, so we’ll skip those and get to multiplication, which we have. Ok, so we’re down to 16 + 16 + 4 – 4. Do we have any divisions? No, skip that to addition. We end up with a 36-16. Then subtract, as it’s the only thing left in the rule and in the problem. We get 20.

How is this so hard to understand? How do people who get 320 from this even breathe?

Oh lawl

So this happened on Twitter today:

Me to Johnnie: How the FUCKING FUCK are we talking about dicks again? This is… I don’t even know! 😀

Oh Banks.

So… kinda … eh?

You know, I’ve moved from being the worst cynic liek evah to a sort of gullible idiot when it comes to people’s love lifes. Who’da thunk, right? I used to be the “oh PUHH-lease”, but now I’m more of the “I kinda believe in it” -party. Then something like this comes along and I end up being mostly

and that sort of pisses me off.

I mean, I want to think that odd (well, odd in this case is more like wtf) couples actually are not all about money and all the -you know- wrong things, but instead good and right and nice things and kittens and all that.

But seriously. Honestly. 16? This is when the GIRLFRIEND PLEEAAAASE with an eyeroll so bad you’ve never seen before kicks in. The Curious Case of … I’ll say.

And that’s what picks my butt in this whole thing. And the fact that creepy actor is creepy. But he’d be creepy regardless him marrying anyone. Hrrr.

Old memes

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Ya know, I sometimes fall into nostalgic stupors only to realise that the internets is Not What It Used To Be. Now don’t get me wrong here, I do like the current ways of it, but I kinda miss Ye Olde Times when people had websites and went about looking for silly questionnaires (then known as memes) and spread them around. I had absolutely the best of times filling up these memes to fill the boring moments (yes, they were mere moments, my life has always been so hectic *eyeroll* ) of my day.

And you know what? I simply do not care that no one never does these things (unless for notes on facebook), I will post one I found from my LJ (oh dear lord I used to have that too, even if I didn’t use it that much (read: almost never)). This is from August 28th, 2005.

7 things that scare you:
Doctors. Spiders. Snakes. Clowns. Losing my hearing. Fire. Being lonely.

7 things you like the most:
Music. My new Cat Empire jacket. Black eyeliner. My friends. Phonecalls. My pooter. Internet.

7 random facts about you:
I snore. I consume chewing gum in ridiculous amounts. I can lose myself in music for hours. When I drive, I drive fast. I’m actually quite a boob. I stutter horribly. My memory sucks.

7 things you plan to do before you die:
Go to Australia. Meet Bono. Bungee-jump. Publish my own music. Finish damn tech-school ;). Move to $country. Drink rum under a palm tree in the Caribbian.

7 things you can’t do:
Stand on my toes. Look pretty (cool yes, pretty no). Play the guitar. Program. Buy a car. Loose weight (oh man it sucks). Tell left from right.

7 things you can do:
Sing. Frown. Giggle. Code not-so-valid html. Talk. Look cool. Memorise song lyrics.

7 things that attract you to the opposite sex:
Legs. Hands. Legs. Intelligence. Legs. Sense of humour. Legs.

7 things you say the most:
Dude. Oh man. n000h. Niinkö?(really). What-the-fuck. Ohmygod. Shite.

7 celeb crushes (whether local or foreign):
Bono. Zeljo Joksimovic. Colin Farrell. Temuera Morrison. Hugh Jackman. Paul Walker. Vladimir Putin ( do NOT ask)

Strangely enough, not much has changed. I don’t do chewing gum anymore (doctor’s orders, my jaw will probably fall off if I still did), I wouldn’t bungee-jump anymore, I have finished tech-school and lo and behold, I have been able to loose weight.

This is … strangely pleasant.

ETA: I know you wanted me to say that V. Putin is no longer in my list of celeb crushes. You wish. 😀

Allright. Who is the funnyface who tried (and miserably failed) to hack my gmail account?

Hint: do not click on the “wtflol i forgot mah password” because it will send me email about it. And here’s another hint: if it didn’t help clicking it the first time, I doubt clicking it the second or the third time will help either.

No love,

me
