Using y = mx + b to measure the slope of that ass

Mathematically incorrect. Unless the ass was linear, but that’s biologically incorrect. You’d probably wanna use something like y=ax^2+bx+c because the ass is a second degree polynomial curve. 

did you major in booty math



Tony would totally be one of those billionaires that went to a restaurant and instead of tipping the waiter he'd pay off their student loans and maybe even their mortgage if the service was extra awesome.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:    Stay with us and keep calm.The last thing we need when we’re panicking, is to have someone else panicking with us.
Offer medicine if we usually take it during an attack.You might have to ask whether or not we take medicine- heck, some might not; but please, ask. It really helps.
Move us to a quiet place.We need time to think, to breathe. Being surrounded by people isn’t going to help.
Don’t make assumptions about what we need. Ask.We’ll tell you what we need. Sometimes; you may have to ask- but never assume.
Speak to us in short, simple sentences.
Be predictable. Avoid surprises.
Help slow our breathing by breathing us or by counting slowly to 10.As odd as it sounds, it works.


                                                                                                                 


WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T DO:1. Say, “You have nothing to be panicked about.”We know. We know. We know. And because we know we have nothing to be panicked about, we panic even more. When I realize that my anxiety is unfounded, I panic even more because then I feel like I’m not in touch with reality. It’s unsettling. Scary.Most of the time, a panic attack is irrational. Sometimes they stem from circumstances — a certain couch triggers a bad memory or being on an airplane makes you claustrophobic or a break up causes you to flip your lid — but mostly, the reasons I’m panicking are complex, hard to articulate or simply, unknown. I could tell myself all day that I have no reason to be having a panic attack and I would still be panicking. Sometimes, because I’m a perfectionist, I become even more overwhelmed when I think my behaviour is “unacceptable” (as I often believe it is when I’m panicking). I know it’s all in my mind, but my mind can be a pretty dark and scary place when it gets going.Alternate suggestion: Say, “I understand you’re upset. It is okay. You have a right to be upset and I am here to help.”2. Say, “Calm down.”This reminds me of a MadTV sketch where Bob Newhart plays a therapist who tells his patients to simply “Stop it!” whenever they express anxiety or fear. As a sketch, it’s funny. In real life, it’s one of the worst things you can do to someone having a panic attack. When someone tells me to “stop panicking” or to “calm down,” I just think, “Oh, okay. I haven’t tried that one. Hold on, let me get out a pen and paper and jot that down, you jerk.”Instead of taking action so that they do relax, simply telling a panicking person to “calm down” or “stop it” does nothing. No-thing.Alternate suggestion: The best thing to do is to listen and support. In order to calm them down without the generalities, counting helps.3. Say, “I’m just going to leave you alone for a minute.”Being left alone while panicking makes my heart race even harder. The last thing I want is to be left by myself with my troubled brain. Many of my panic attacks spark from over-thinking and it’s helpful to have another person with me, not only for medical reasons (in case I pass out or need water) but also it’s helpful to have another person around to force me to think about something other than the noise in my head.Alternate suggestion: It sometimes helps me if the person I’m with distracts me by telling me a story or sings to me. I need to get out of my own head and think about something other than my own panic.4. Say, “You’re overreacting.”Here’s the thing: I’m not. Panic attacks might be in my head, but I’m in actual physical pain. If you’d cut open your leg, no one would be telling you you’re overreacting. It’s a common trope in mental health to diminish the feelings or experience of someone suffering from anxiety or panic because there’s no visible physical ailment and because there’s no discernible reason for the person to be having such a strong fear reaction.The worst thing you can tell someone who is panicking is that they are overreacting.Alternate suggestion: Treat a panic attack like any other medical emergency. Listen to what the person is telling you. Get them water if they need it. It helps me if someone rubs my back a little. If you’re in over your head, don’t hesitate to call 911 (or whatever the emergency services number is where you are). But please, take the person seriously. Mental health deserves the same respect as physical health.

Do you know anything about this Meto leaving the band thing?
Anonymous

xmyrkul:

Oh my gosh, this is pissing me off so hard. (Not your question, the rumors)

I was sent the link for that Tanuki crap this morning by a friendly person (♡ hi there (^_^) ), and oh my God, so many lies in one post. Unbelievable. And ridiculous.
For those who don’t know: It seems, there are rumors about Meto leaving the band. People said, MiA and Koichi and basically everyone hated Meto so bad, they wanted him to leave the band now. Especially MiA was told to always hate Meto so much, he always would want him to leave the band as soon as possible. Others said, he is suffering after-effects of his accident, but that was more a by-the-way-speculation.

What a bullshit! Oh my gosh.
First of all, no one ever mentioned they would kick someone out of the band. On the contrary, everyone was even very concerned about Meto and his condition and all. Especially MiA by the way. Tsuzuku was talking just yesterday about performing Live again as 4 (!) people soon and how he’s looking forward to it.
Furthermore. If Meto would leave the band, I hope these rumor speaders know that the band would fall apart immediately. Without a drummer, no band. And MEJIBRAY would never be looking for a new member. And if the band happened to fall apart, Tsuzuku would be dead by tomorrow. This much is sure. That’s why he would never risk the band to fall apart ever. Even if they would all hate each other so much, which I greatly doubt, they would not go so far as to kick someone out of the band.
And if that’s not proof enough - They announced so much about the postponed tour already, how the fans should look forward to the 4 members reunited. They will be having such a cramped schedule soon, there will be really no time for crap like that.

Sorry for being so angry, I just hate it when people spread such obviously false rumors and worry the fans.
No one should be stating such things when there is no evidence at all. We can only know if something’s happening if we hear it from the members themselves. As long as they don’t, these are all just bad rumors for me.
I hope I could answer your question though. Thank you for asking, I was thinking about stating on that matter anyways~

5 Reasons We Should Celebrate Andreja Pejic
By Claire Biggs
If you were paying attention in 2011, you might remember Andreja Pejic as the androgynous model who took the fashion world by storm. Supported by the likes of Carine Roitfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, Pejic found fame by championing a career that didn’t require her to conform to normal gender norms. Now the 22-year-old is embarking on a new chapter: living – and working – as a woman after sexual reassignment surgery (SRS).

We’ve put together a list of 5 reasons you should celebrate the supermodel.
+ She Stayed True to Herself at Risk of Losing Her Career
Although Pejic was proud of her gender nonconforming career, her “biggest dream was to be comfortable in” her body. She knew that transitioning might be setbacks in her career, but she decided that she had to be true to herself; her career is “just going to have to fit around that.”
+ She’s Opening Up Because She Has a “Social Responsibility”
Pejic didn’t have to come out about her transition, but she chose to do so – and on such a public scale – because she has a “social responsibility” to do so. In fact, she hopes that “by being open about this, it becomes less of an issue.”
+ She Wants to Give Others Hope
In a Facebook post, Pejic calls her transition a “life-saving process.” For others considering a similar transition, the model wrote that she hopes to show that “one can be happy and successful in their new chapter without having to alienate their past.”
+ She’s Joining a High-Profile Group of Women + Changing an Industry
The fashion world is often lacking in diversity, so have someone like Pejic accepted by the industry is a huge win for the LGBTQ community. Like Laverne Cox and Janet Mock, Pejic is using her platform to promote activism on behalf of the trans community.
+ She’s Setting the Record About SRS Straight
When asked about her surgery, Pejic was quick to dispute the misconception that “you go to a surgeon and say, ‘Oh, I want to be a woman.’” As she explains, there are psychiatric evaluations involved, and patients undergo “strict testing” before being allowed to have the procedure.
