#Brittana otp: I just want you Songbird Remember when they showed like .03 seconds of this scene in the promo for this episode and literally all it was was Santana reaching over to touch Brittany’s hand and we all gifed it 30 thousand times and collectively died? Well I still sort of die over that little handhold because it is so tentative and shy but reaching—it is Santana trying to reach Brittany but feeling scared both that she won’t be brave enough to make things work and that she’s lost her chance to make things work already The fact that Brittany not only accepts Santana’s hand but actually strengthens and solidifies that handhold essentially telling Santana that everything is okay and that Santana is doing just fine and that they still have a chance? That’s like monumental And then the fact that they walk off together hand-in-hand and with their arms sort of slung around each other? That’s the be all and end all I could never stop shipping these two as long as watching just their little interactions like this one continues to give me butterflies They’re so entirely sweet with each otherThe way Santana says ”I’ve been going through that Rumours album and I found the best song”? I’ll never get over it It’s literally only the best for Brittany with her She can’t dare to believe that she’ll get the best thing—that she’ll get Brittany—because she doesn’t believe she’s worthy of it of course But Brittany? Brittany should always get the best and Santana makes sure that happens Our poor brave Baby Girls… I can’t
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
Thank you donut side of Tumblr.
weber? lol, more like we-boring
Sadly, this is 100% relevant to my life right now.
Kind of in love with my “fuck it’s laundry day and I don’t have anything to wear to the laundromat” outfit. I’m almost disappointed that the laundromat is the only place I’ll be going today and that I’ll have to put a coat on to get there.

Ravitch is the queen. If only the government would listen…
We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed.
Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.
These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s. But the United States’s political climate is so different from anywhere else in the industrialized world that I fear we will just continue to get farther behind in education (and in % of people living in poverty) until we decide to make some big domestic investments.
