EVERY MORNING HE SAYS SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT HOW THE WORLD NEEDS YOU AND YOU HAVE TO GET UP
AND WHEN YOU PRESS THE BUTTON TO HUSH HIM HE SAYS “DEFTLY DONE, MADAM,” OR “IF IT’S NOT TOO FORWARD OF ME, THAT DID TICKLE, MADAM”
IT WAKES YOU UP WITH THE SOUND OF CHIRPING BIRDS BEFORE STEPHEN FRY’S VOICE

Florentijn Hofman’s Giant Rubber Ducky has stirred both emotions and controversy during its tour of Asia this year. While the massive inflatable bath toy has enchanted tens of thousands of viewers, it’s alsomade children cry in Hong Kong, faced censorship in China, and survived a supertyphoon in Taiwan.
Now, it seems the duck has met a rather untimely (and less than dignified) end, following a 6.3 magnitude earthquake that hit Taiwan Thursday. Taiwanese officials said that the quake caused the 59-foot sculpture to deflate while on display in Taoyuan township. When workers attempted to re-inflate the duck, its rear end exploded, “rendering it a flattened yellow disc floating on a pond.”
what a poetic description of a full-on ass blowout
And that boys and girls is why you are supposed to wear a helmet.
THIS. ALL THE TIME THIS. I see so many motorcyclists not wearing helmets these days and I get so scared for them! Please wear a helmet all the time! On your motorcycle? Helmet. On your bike? Helmet. Skateboard? Helmet. First day of High School? Helmet. Last day of High School? Helmet. Going for a leisurely stroll? MOTHERFUCKING HELMET.
This legitimately upsets me.
… 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.
god i love this site
can’t argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.
