    I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life

    My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.

    I need to remember this for uniforms.

    Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!

  2. Returning to collections/finals/prelims revision



    No, screw you Kevin Spacey. You aren’t allowed to look that calm and ready and stuff, even if the character you play is an abject basket case. Collections are going to bend me over their knees and spank me for three hours on each of Thursday and Friday. So, Mr Spacey, please go back where you came from and leave me to my ignorance and inadequacies.

  3. Mother decided I hadn’t been sufficiently mothered this vac, and so when I casually mentioned that hot cross buns are quite tasty she decided to bake some. Have distracted myself from packing/revision/general productivity by smearing warm apricot jam on top. Glaze it and praise it, boys and girls.

    this word and everything it stands for mean so much to me

    Funny that. In my lexicon, the entry reads: ‘due measure, proportion, fitness; the right point of time, the proper time or season for action, the exact or critical time.’

    So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

    holy shit

    ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

    Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

    for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


    this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit

    THIS is why how we represent data matters.

  10. "What are the defining differences between streets, roads, avenues, boulevards, etc.? What dictates how it is designated?"

    Road = Originally in a non-built up area, but often now in a built up area due to urban expansion.

    Street = In a built up area

    Avenue = lined with trees

    Terrace = beside a river

    Lane = A narrow street

    Crescent = generally both ends join the same street, but sometimes it just looks like a crescent.

    Mews = a street with several small off-shoots

    Quey = Waterside street

    Place = only one point of entry

    Boulevard = two lane street with trees/foliage in-between
