I mean, I’d never actually DO this in a Starbucks, but I’ve thought it before.
Analog EE has a bit of a reputation as “black magic” among electrical engineers (whose craft has a bit of a reputation as “black magic” among regular engineers, whose, you get it, it’s wizards all the way down), so the students in this class spent 9 weeks banging their heads up against a wall called The Small Signal Model and various other weirdness for what I am very sure felt like extremely little, reward-wise. Just another notch in their belts. More numbers, more grades.
Today, they were testing their final project, which to this point had been an inert slab of plastic and fiddly bits that occasionally melted in places for no apparent reason. (Did I mention the magic part?)
Testing it involved attaching alligator clips to one part of the project, and the other side to a standard audio cable… plugged into an electric guitar.
Suffice to say, we rocked the hell out and everyone felt just a little bit better about the 9 weeks spent.
Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.
she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.
damn no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards
The fact that we know about her is marvelous.
the next Pharaoh after her Tuthmosis III tried to erase Hatshepsut out of history ,chiseled her name off her monuments ,covered the text on her obelisks with stone,knocked down and defaced her statues .
she was even left off the list of pharaohs ..talk about some patriarchy bullshit
her name was lost for a couple of millennia, her body was found in a unmarked grave in early twentieth century
sad part is in Egyptian belief is if your are forgotten in the living world you don’t exist in the afterlife,so he was trying to kill her even in death
My best friend throwing down some herstory. A+ commentary
She wore a fake beard, you guys.
She was the fucking boss.
If we remember her now does that save her from an awful afterlife?
I’m just picturing the Kemetic afterlife. All the Pharaohs are hanging out in some kind of swanky club, drinking and congratulating each other on being bros.
The doors slam open and Hatshepsut strides in, glorious, robes swirling, rocking the fake beard and the insane amounts of wealth and power. “Miss me, bitches?”
this post was amazing from start to finish
Almost didn’t reblog but then it got better. Also, she gets talked about a fair bit these days, more than those dudes, who are all faded out so like her and Tutankaman (you know, that poor little kid that basically got paraded around for a few months before dying of, like, everything?) are one of maybe five that are still bright and vibrant AND YOU JUST KNOW THEY ARE INSUFFERABLE AND AWESOME.
Bonus points: the more we reblog this THE MORE POWERFUL SHE BECOMES
i needed to punch my paranoia in the face and also practice drawing wolves so I took both of them out in one swing
"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news. Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.
So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.
Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer. It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired. These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.
Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”
I think it was after the Boston Marathon bombings that Hank Green posted a video where he gave us some advice— “look to the helpers” in times of crisis, because it will show you that there is reason to hope, and people to look up to.
Like these people. Magnificent work, Pinetart. We salute you.
You have no idea how computers work…BUT YOU WILL THREE MINUES FROM NOW!
~And they lived happily ever after~
This was really dumb and a lot of fun to draw :D
