one time my friend tried to say she had boobs the size of jupiter but she accidentally said “jubes” instead and then she burst out laughing for five whole minutes and finally whispered
"i have jubes the size of boopiter"
It is possible to define a consistent addition of points on certain kinds of curves (elliptic curves). This arithmetic plays an important role in modern mathematics. For instance, Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s last theorem is a consequence of the modularity theorem (once known as the Taniyama-Shimura-Weil conjecture), which gives a strong connection between elliptic curves and modular forms. Elliptic curves over finite fields also have cryptographic applications, or can be used for integer factorization.
#Wall decals about bible verses will class up any kitchen #You should come to my Thirty-One party
I can’t stop. There are too many:
#I’m the best mom on this field trip and everyone knows it #Have you read Eat, Pray, Love? #Let’s get lattes after Zumba! #Gluten causes Autism #I will have him pulled out of your class #Oh shoot, I forgot I volunteered to bring brownies to faith group tonight #We don’t let him watch more than one hour of TV a day #Stick figure family window sticker #(whispers behind hand) you’ve got to read 50 Shades of Grey
Forgive me. I am a mother, and I walk among these women every day. I have adopted their ways as a form of camouflage.

I hate tearing up at work.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.
Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
"The tragedy of that poor boy’s life is not the realization that he’s not the grand prize he’s assumed, but that he’s not even second place."
Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I have a love for her that runs deep.
This week, I look at the dangerous precedent the IRS’ hard drive excuse sets for government accountability:
Of course, for many people, distaste for the IRS kicked into high gear with the news that the agency hassled conservative/tea party and even progressive political groups with unfair delays and scrutiny. The government can’t handle criticism, it seems, and the IRS decided to make life miserable for any organization that didn’t adequately bow before the system.
At the center of this scandal is Lois Lerner, the high-ranking IRS agent who repeatedly refused to testify about her role in this corruption by pleading the Fifth. Because of her silence (only recently broken with protestations of innocence), an archive of tens of thousands of her emails is the one clear source of evidence to determine wrongdoing in the political targeting debacle.
So, inevitably since this is the government we’re talking about, many of those emails are missing.
For months now, we’ve heard excuse after excuse and story after story about these elusive emails. Back in June, the IRS claimed that the emails were gone because of limited email storage space and a computer crash back in 2011.
Since then, new revelations and accusations have been all over the map. In one statement, the IRS suggested that the emails are not missing after all, but it would be a lot of work to find them. Reports have surfaced that the emails could have been saved on a government-wide backup service, but the IRS says no such service exists. Meanwhile, the agency continues to announce the loss of more and more emails in what can only be described as highly convenient circumstances for corrupt IRS employees.
Oh, and did I mention that a Department of Justice attorney who has represented the IRS was apparently himself involved in the original corruption?
I must admit I haven’t paid a lot of attention to the IRS scandal until recently. I tend to be more interested in foreign policy and civil liberties issues, and it’s not like my feelings about the IRS could get much more negative anyway, amirite?
But then I saw this headline: Koskinen: “Hard Drive Crashes Continue as We Speak”
I mean, really? Really?!
I’d like to look at the millions of deaths caused by countries under “Democracy” over a century and see how things compare.
I’d also like to see the examples of “Communist” countries this is based on, since I’m willing to bet damn near all of them weren’t actually Communist.
Thank you for proving this picture
Dave did prove the point of the meme with that response, but he’s also right in pointing out the flawed Democracies over the years (including ours) that have been responsible for the deaths of innocents. However, if we’re going to make this as one-dimensional as “Whose terribly flawed political ideology has caused more deaths worldwide over the course of history?” then yeah, Communism wins that contest, I think. The meme itself is pretty stupid though. I get what it’s trying to poke fun at, and yes, lots of people stubbornly refuse to acknowledge Communism’s colossal failures because “It works in an ideal world” (a moot point, surely), but chalking up decades of history to ideology alone is ignoring way too much.
Not worth getting snippy over, guys.
