As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion

No thank you.

The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling

THE MESO-AMERICAN CULTURES STILL EXIST.

THE MAYA ARE STILL LIVING.

THE AZTECA ARE STILL LIVING.

MOST ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY AND ARE FIGHTING TO RETAIN THEIR RIGHTS TO THEIR SACRED SITES, RITUALS, AND PRACTICES BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK THEIR CULTURES ARE DEAD WHEN THEY’RE NOT.

THEY ARE STILL LIVING.

STOP THAT.

"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth. Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.   …. Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful. The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.  ….
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything. This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”

Thank

I always wanted to go to a school where it could be about my own interests and loves before university and get to learn about what interests me, because honestly, I don’t give two damns about square and cubic roots.

If they can save the world, you can get through this day.

Never stop fighting.

17 Equations That Changed The World

I would argue that they merely described the world, rather than changed it, but still cool.

I would argue that the very act of describing the world in the way mathematics did, subsequently changed the world. It’s not like mathematicians did math locked away in room forever, all these equations had real world consequences. To say equations are just descriptions or some how insinuate they haven’t changed the world is oversimplifying things. The title is pretty fitting.
