too lazy and cold to walk to the cafeteria to get food. maybe i’ll finally eat that can of Ravioli i’ve been saving
CHEF BOYARDEE YOU HAVE FAILED ME
WHY WOULD YOU GET RID OF THE LITTLE TABS ON THE TOPS OF YOUR RAVIOLI CANS
I AM A COLLEGE STUDENT WHERE THE FUCK DO YOU THINK I’M GONNA FIND A CAN OPENER
good news: i have obtained a can opener
bad news: i just realized i have no idea how to use a can opener
this youtube tutorial on how to use a can opener is making me question my intelligence a lot
IN MY DEFENSE
this was apparently a speshal snowflake can opener that is supposed to be kid safe or something idek
but it cuts open the can from the outside??? and not from the lid??? which i did not know.
i remember this so vividly
it was not my shining moment
no kelly. no it was not.
not sure which story I find funnier, this, or the bread
On the other hand, my nose flaring abilities are pretty good
For some reason I thought about this a lot as a kid
This legitimately upsets me.
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
god i love this site
can’t argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.
more donut per donut
OMG I KNOW WHY THEY ZOOMED IN KUVIRA LIKE SHE WAS SUCH AN IMPORTANT CHARACTER LOOK :O
she’s a love child!
This was painful. Like, really sad. And the consequences will be interesting. I knew Korra would have some sort of major event occur in her life that would cause her to become debilitated and incapable of performing her duties, so this was definitely in line with that, but it was still hard to watch. Also, instead of the death of someone close to her, which is what I thought would happen, we get something that physically debilitates her—which in some ways, is almost better, as it removes her power and agency in a much more real, visceral way. And for Korra, someone to whom power and energy and choice means everything, being stuck in a wheelchair is a pretty horrifying thing. I’m really interested to see where this goes, and how Korra learns her final lessons: Learning how to look to others for help, and learning to get back up again even when hope is nothing but a bitter memory.
