So at work yesterday we only had pink spoons to hand out for the frozen yogurt and every male asked if we had a different color spoon because they did not like pink and it’s femininity and lemme tell u that this proves boys are weak and a fuckjng pink spoon proved that
I would have no problem in this situation.
I don’t like yogurt.
There really needs to be a DVD of these shorts. They are too good to be lost to the vault.

I wish I knew…and this is a bigger question than you think you’re asking. When we count we go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and then we start over again, just changing the second number, 11, 12, 13…etc. This is called “base 10”. The base is the number that you have to hit before moving a decimal place over. We use base ten, presumably, 100% because we have ten fingers.
However, 12 is possibly a better choice. Ten is only divisible by 1, 2, 5, and 10 while 12 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. So for a lot of applications, base 12 is easier to use. And we do use base 12, just not very often or very precisely. Every time you say “two dozen” you’re using base 12. Or, in the case of your pack of tampons, eight dozen.
Why we use dozens isn’t exactly clear…it may be just because it’s mathematically convenient…or it may be good for marketing reasons (96 might sound more impressive than 100.) Or maybe it’s because there are roughly 12 lunar cycles per year (which is where we get the 12 months.)
We don’t really know…but beer, soda, eggs, and tampons…all come in dozens…for reasons that stretch back, possibly, to the very beginning of counting. Which is REALLY COOL.
This is going to lead to that question about hot dogs in tens and buns in eights, isn’t it?
so if you watch the star trek episode “space seed.”
you, in 2014, are watching an episode that aired in 1967, that takes place in the 23rd century, about people frozen since the 1990s, which was the future to people in the sixties, but canonically the past to the characters in TOS, and now the past to you.
so you’re watching a show from the past about the future about the past which was then the future but is now the past again.
Every time I see one of these videos, I have to ask “So, did they GET a job, or just make a point?”
Cause I’d rather have a job than prove something. Unless it made me some money.
I’d take a job whose purpose was to prove something, if that helps.

I’m reblogging this again cause it’s that awesome.
Then there’s the Navy
Then there’s the fans at Dragon Con -
WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!
I think we know why.
Unless there were two of these ladies, it was.
And in honesty, the reason this wasn’t a bigger story for longer is more because it had no violence. ”Mass shooting averted”, sadly, is not as good a story as “Mass Shooting”/
