ART THEFT

Hey, tumblr! yesterday, March 26, a piece of my art was stolen off the wall where it was in a show in Portland Maine. I spent a lot of time and effort on this, and i might even have gotten a scholarship from the installation it was in, but some douchebag walked off with it!

please, if tumblr can get people a fluffy chicken or a plane ticket, can you help me find my art? Even if you can reblog this, just in case someone sees it. If you have any information, PLEASE send me an ask.

FOR SCIENCE - Can You Roll Your Tongue?

annikath:

Can you roll your tongue like this? image
If you CAN, then please REBLOG.
This is for serious science! because I have an assignment in my biology class to do a survey on how many people can or cannot roll their tongues.
If you CANNOT roll your tongue like that, then please FAVOURITE this post!
you can de-favourite the post or delete it from your blog in about two weeks if you desire to do so, but I plead you to take part in this survey of serious sience! thank

I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.


why on earth doesn’t this have more notes

I actually had to do this once. She lived.

if you scroll past this on your dash you are absolutely heartless.

Wow, I didn’t know this existed. I had to Google-stalk this girl’s parents down so I could call them and tell them she was in trouble.

How long will it be before you guys realize this is unconfirmed?
The presence of every possible number combination an infinite number of times is known as normality. The concept of “nonrepeating” is very strict in that it means that pi will never form a loop. It doesn’t imply unpredictability and/or normality. The easiest way to show this is to show an example of a nonrepeating number that is predictable and non-normal.
Counterexample: 0.12612661266612666612666661266… in which the number of 6s increases by one each time. The sequence is entirely predictable, and it will NEVER contain the string “77”, or “36”, or “22”. But it never repeats in the sense of the word “nonrepeating”.
You see, nonrepeating and infinite does not imply normalcy. PI COULD VERY WELL BE NORMAL, AND WE SUSPECT IT IS, BUT WE DON’T KNOW FOR CERTAIN.

i ranted on this a while ago
please take care to be well-informed this pi day and stop reblogging stupid bs posts like this

ALSO! Infinite non-repeating numbers don’t necessarily have to have all things encoded into them! For example, the number 0.1001110000111110000001111111… is infinite and non-repeating, but don’t have all sequences of digits in it. We don’t actually know if the number pi is NORMAL which is the property that has been described.

Happy Pi Day, everyone! | March 14, 2014

Image Credits: First two screenshots above via The Science of Reality, third image below via PiDay.org

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

Circle DiagramPi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.

The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around.

HISTORY OF PI

By measuring circular objects, it has always turned out that a circle is a little more than 3 times its width around. In the Old Testament of the Bible (1 Kings 7:23), a circular pool is referred to as being 30 cubits around, and 10 cubits across. The mathematician Archimedes used polygons with many sides to approximate circles and determined that Pi was approximately 22/7. The symbol (Greek letter “π”) was first used in 1706 by William Jones. A ‘p’ was chosen for ‘perimeter’ of circles, and the use of π became popular after it was adopted by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 1737. In recent years, Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits past its decimal. Only 39 digits past the decimal are needed to accurately calculate the spherical volume of our entire universe, but because of Pi’s infinite & patternless nature, it’s a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

GEOMETRY

The number pi is extremely useful when solving geometry problems involving circles. Here are some examples:

• The area of a circle:

A = πr2

Where ‘r’ is the radius (distance from the center to the edge of the circle). Also, this formula is the origin of the joke “Pies aren’t square, they’re round!”

• The volume of a cylinder:

V = πr2h

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, you calculate length × width × height. In that case, length × width is the area of one side (the base), which is then multiplied by the height of the prism. Similarly, to find the volume of a cylinder, you calculate the area of the base (the area of the circle), then multiply that by the height (h) of the cylinder.
