The math game got real!! I bought a Casio fx-82ES PLUS.

Casio_fx_82ES_PLUS

you can find it’s manual here.

It is not that I didn’t had a calculator (separate from my phone) before. But last week I needed to do something with exponents, and I didn’t know how to do it on my calculator. I googled like mad,ย  trust me ๐Ÿ˜ก The only thing I found out was that calculator I had, was not allowed on exams and that you shouldn’t do calculations on it when it’s battery is dead ๐Ÿ™„ Always good to know right?

While I was looking for youtube vids or blogs or whatever, I found a lot of youtube vids regarding how to operate the Casio fx-82ES PLUS. And one offย  the youtube comments was very apt:Thank you for your explanation. Why do universities require us to buy this caclulator without explaing how it works?”

While the fx-82ES PLUS comes with a manual, still having someone explain to you how to use it, is handy. Ooh, and this calculator is allowed on exams, ha ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I must say, with math I am now getting to a point, where I gave up many years ago on high school. Because I thought I sucked at math, being close to the point where I gave up on, I did an amazing discovery. I love doing math! It is like solving puzzles, and that alone gives me hope ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Hope that I can do something with the feelings I had when I saw bumblebee (who transformed in a yellow beetle back then) for the first time. The feelings I had when I was watching Jem, it was never about the girls it, it was never about the music. It was about one thing, one thing only; SYNERGY !! (Cortana’s grandmother? Makes the appeal to HALO many, many, years later also clear, I guess ๐Ÿ’ก )

Each time I solve something which I never thought I could, I literally hear this lady saying:


The people who know me, know where this is coming from. My love, for always and forever โค โค โค !

This used to be me….

idrinkbeernow

When I write it used to be me, I am not referring to “the artist” ๐Ÿ˜

I have been drinking wine for quite some time now, and I’ve noticed the last couple of years wine slowly but steadily lost it’s appeal. Last time I drank wine was months ago, late 2019. There was time where I couldn’t imagine not drinking wine ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Hell, I proudly used to say, “Ever since I started drinking wine, there hasn’t passed a week where I didn’t drink at least one bottle” Look at me in this pic in 2001 gobbling up that red, red, wine.

I drink beer now ๐Ÿ˜Ž

#khanacademey the beginning of the end?

Namely the beginning of the end of true free online education. It is a sad day today ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I discovered that Khan Academy is going to retire some content. Meaning that what was once free at Khan Academy, will most likely have to be paid for somewhere else. Taking away the upward mobility from people from lower social classes who cannot pay for these classes. One off these courses being the the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test).

mcat

So it will be free in 2020, but years after…

Here is the petition where people are trying to stop this from happening.

I can’t help but wonder what will be next ๐Ÿ˜• and I already feared something like this happening ever since Salman Khan posted the vid below.

In this vid, that was made on March 27th 2020, he admits that Khan Academy has been running a deficit for a while.

This #AllLivesMatter bullshit needs to stop, NOW!

Yes #AllLivesMatter is bullshit. To put it in Chris Rock his words, “Yeah there, I said it” ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The #AllLivesMatter bullshit is demeaning to black people. Like black people don’t know that all lives matter (Wtf do you think black people are? Stupid??!!). Also it removes the complete focus from #BlackLivesMatter, it weakens the point black people are trying to make. The point that they have been trying to make for like fucking centuries.

#BlackLivesMatter is about Ruby Nell Bridges Hall on 14 November 1960, who at the tender age of 6 went to an all white school (she is still alive, btw). This was such a shock and outrage to the white community, she had to be escorted by 4 Field Marshalls to safely go to school. And when she was there only one white teacher, was willing to educate her.

 

Ruby going to school.

.

#BlackLivesMatter is about the fact that the descendents (I am using the term here loosely) of that white community that did not want Ruby in their white school. Put shit like this in FUCKING 2020 on Social Media.

 

whitetrash

This lovely social media post is a reaction to the riots, going on right now.

#BlackLivesMatter is aobut Rodney King getting the shit beaten out of him on 3rd of March 1991, which was caught on camera. Four of the officers who went to trial for using excessive violence, basically faced no legal consequences. Which caused the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

#BlackLivesMatter is about how Amy Cooper used her white privilege on 25th of May 2020 to try (she thankfully failed) ruin a black man’s live. Why? Because he had the nerve to address an issue with her, namely that in that part of Central Park dogs need to be on a leash.

Being the entitled white bitch she is she told him that she would call the police and tell them she was threatened by a black man. Which she did, had the black man not been recording, his life would have been ruined. You can see the lovely vid below.

The confidence and the casualty of Amy Coopers threats that is what #BlackLivesMatter is about.

#BlackLivesMatter is about how George Floyd was killed by 3 policemen on 25th of May 2020. While the public was filming. The confidence of these three murderess, that is what #BlackLivesMatter is about.

SO STOP THE #AllLivesMatter BULLSHIT, AND LET BLACK PEOPLE GET FULL ATTENTION ON THEIR ISSUES. IT IS NOT ONLY DESERVED BUT ALSO VERY NEEDED. STOP WEAKENING THEIR STANCE BY USING THE #AllLivesMatter BULLSHIT.

Regarding the riots and the looting that is going on right now? I condone it, yes people violence is a solution. You know how women got the right to vote in America? BY COMMITTING ACTS OF VIOLENCE.

โ€œThose who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

I have heard and read that atrocities committed by the police during the riots that are taking place right now andย  are caught on camera, are being deleted from reddit, twitter etc. etc. Well, if that is the case, then I’ll host them on here, because that is how I roll ๐Ÿ˜Ž

If I am not posting for a while, it is that I might be held in Guantanamo Bay, experiencing wether waterboarding is torture or not ๐Ÿ™„ Remember you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie ๐Ÿ˜›

Yay, school is open in Hong Kong!

schoolisopen

Kids being arrested in Hong Kong.

Nice to see that kids can go back to school in Hong Kong! These kids must be some pretty savage protesters ๐Ÿ™„ OR maybe they were spreading false rumors regarding COVID-19

I mean if China does not appreciate a doctor (Dr Li Wenliang), talking about COVID-19. Who the hell do these little girls think they are, eh?

(Regarding the doctor here is an excerpt form this PDF.
Dr Li, 34, tried to send a message to fellow medics about the outbreak at the end of December 2019. Three days later police paid him a visit and told him to stop. He returned to work and caught the virus from a patient. He had been in hospital for at least three weeks.

Four days later he was summoned to the Public Security Bureau where he was told to sign a letter. In the letter he was accused of “making false comments” that had “severely disturbed the social order”. “We solemnly warn you: If you keep being stubborn, with such impertinence, and continue this illegal activity, you will be brought to justice – is that understood?” Underneath in Dr Li’s handwriting is written: “Yes, I do.” )

Today Hong Kong, tomorrow the rest of the world.

Just in case, I am not planning on committing suicide. And if I ever say good things about China and or the backward honor culture I had the bad luck to be born in, but I managed to escape at 17. Something happened to me, something BAD. Also you can always do the cliccy for the larger piccie ๐Ÿ˜›

Hi, China how you doing?

Fixed that issue with Hong Kong yet? You know that issue that has been going since 15th of March 2019? Ooh no, Hong Kong is still fighting for itโ€™s freedom ๐Ÿ’ก

I have noticed something interesting, ever since I wrote this article. China has been visiting site noticeably more, I can tell by the statistics on the back end of my blog. Donโ€™t get me wrong, before I wrote the article I would get the occasional visit from China. But since the article the amount of visits from China has been dramatically increased. I discussed the matter with my mom (Sonia โค ).

china2

See China you should have left me alone! Checking this shitty little blog (sometimes multiple times a day!) that only has one critical article about Hong Kong? Seriously ๐Ÿ™„ wtf???!!! CHINA IT IS ON!!

The thing here is what is going on in Hong Kong, hit me hard, it went straight to my core. Like the game HALO did many years ago. Donโ€™t get me wrong me wrong I am aware of the protests that are going on right now in Chili, India etc. etc. But Hong Kong, the protests there are the only I literally feel ^^’

So what to expect? Frequent articles about Hong Kong and the atrocities committed by China. This is not a news blog, the topics I write about will be old news. What kind of blog this is? I donโ€™t fucking know anymore ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Here is 3 minute vid that shows what happened in Hong Kong in the past 7 months.

The vid is created by soaringturnip.

Manual to the Casio Collection W-216H-1BVEF watch

It is the manual to this watch

Watch

It is not a complete manualย  ๐Ÿ’กย  just two pages that covers the most important shit (like setting time, date etc. etc). You can find the manual here.

I like this watch, it has a big display with the information I care about. Yes, I know it is not a smart watch ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t like to be traceable all the time. When I go out to commit a murder, I leave my phone at home. The watch tells me how much time I have, before the police might consider it suspicious that I walk around without emitting a phone signal ๐Ÿ˜Ž

There is a first time for everything, I guess…

I have been hanging around the internet since 1995, yes I am old, yes I know the sound a 28k8 modem makes ๐Ÿ˜€ And I have been watching porn online ever since, but I was never caught by a stranger. That was until yesterday…..

I was doing homework in an internet cafe and stranger who sat next to me, started talking to me. And she wanted to show me something on my laptop. The moment she hit “PO” on my keyboard, I knew it wouldn’t end well ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

My entire pornhub history showed, you know the titles off all the “movies” I have been watching where there for her to see. We sat there like 4 seconds in complete silence….. In that silence I contemplated saying “Listen, I was extremely horny last night” I decided against it. After those quiet 4 seconds we continued like nothing happened ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I shared this story with my real family (not the backward retards I have the bad luck of sharing a name and dna with). We all had a good laugh about it,ย  the best reaction was given by Sonia (my mom โค ). Her reaction is in the screenshot below:

How to change fonts in tty on Fedora

This tutorial is for tty only! This how to did not work in Konsole, I got some funny looking error message ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Which I didn’t care too much about, since I am tty junkie and terminal emulators have unlike tty a menu in which can you change the font. This also explains why the usual screenshots are missing, I had to take pictures. And yes they suck, I can’t take pictures, I know ๐Ÿ™„

I entered tty3 by hitting

Ctrl+Alt+F3

(read more about getting in and out of tty here).

Where I was presented with this screen:

logintty

I logged with my username and password, the regular ones, no need to login as root.

Then I typed:

cd /lib/kbd/consolefonts

libkbdconsolefontsThis moves to directory where all the fonts are stored, to see which fonts there are, type:

ls

showfonts

These are the fonts you can choose from:

allfonts

To see what a font (for example sun12X22.psfu.gz) looks like type:

setfont sun12x22.psfu.gz

Yes you can use TAB completion in tty too!

Here you can see what earlier mentioned font looks like:

resultsetfont

Keep in mind this is a temporary solution, for a permanent solution the .bashrc file needs to modified ๐Ÿ’ก

Wow! What a nice suprise!

So I was just checking out my stats page, of which you can see a part below.

statspage

And I noticed that files were being downloaded from my blog. I was likeย ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

“Huh, people actually download the stuff I upload??!!??? WTF, seriously???!! How is THAT even possible??!!”

Then I went to check how many times files were downloaded in 2019. Turns out file download counts were not recorded before July 2019. So this are the downloads from July till now.

downloads

I must say it is pretty neat, since I always wondered if other people gave a fuck about what I put up on the site. To be fair, it is quite humbling and it encourages me to do better.

What I want to say is, thank you, thank you so much! This made my day, I really needed this today ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
