Video reblogged from Mathematical, Educational, and Philosophical Musin with 27 notes
What was the hardest thing you learned when studying math?
James Tanton sits down and talks about one of his most difficult experiences in mathematics. His difficulty wasn’t one course or topic, but rather his entire PhD experience. He spent over 2 and a half years working on a single problem with nothing to show for it, until he had a burst of inspiration one afternoon and solved it in 2 hours.
This is a great, quick video to watch for not only those of us who are doing math research, but even those who are taking high school and college math courses because it really emphasizes persistence and patience in math. I’ve talked about how I struggled for years with probability, but with enough time and dedication I was able to grasp and understand it. I believe everyone with the right focus, viewpoint, and help can get to wherever they want in math.
Ahh, it’s back
i have disproportionately strong feelings about this.
every time i say “nah i’m not gonna watch it again.” BUT I STILL DO EVERY TIME.

The Game of Life.
oh my god
what an interesting way to look at things.
lifes a gamble
and death always wins
because death has nothing to lose
Or maybe because Death’s a cheating whore look at that fuck hiding cards under his bony ass
Hands down, one of my favorite pieces ever.
You can’t cheat death.. But that doesn’t mean death can’t cheat you
there is a reason 12 year olds should not be on tumblr
that is the reason in case any of you were confused
OH MY GOD THERE IS A PHOTOSET OF THIS?
I laughed so hard 😂😂😂
“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
I’d be laughing ll the way out the door
do u at least get to see a dick tho
tumblr user fangks asks the real questions
my mother has been there and reports that yes you do get to see the dick and also it’s worth it
i would not be ashamed then
fuck “walk of shame” i’d strut out of the bathroom like yes bitch i just saw a nice dick what have you done with your life
