I learned that physics is easier when taught by physics teachers than by calculus teachers. Calculus teachers make it more difficult than it has to be.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I'm just now realizing the little boy from Iron Man 3 is the little boy from Insidious 1&2.

Ty Simpkins. Actually pretty adorable when he isn't possessed in horror movies.

He's got something in his eye in the first picture.
Needs to run it under running water or something.

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
About thaana, the modern writing system of Divehi, the Maldivian language.

"The origins of Tāna are unique among the world's alphabets: The first nine letters (h–v) are derived from the Arabic numerals, whereas the next nine (m–d) were the local Indic numerals. The remaining letters for loanwords (z–ch) and Arabic transliteration are derived from phonetically similar native consonants by means of diacritics, with the exception of y, which is of unknown origin. This means that Thaana is one of the few alphabets not derived graphically from the original Semitic alphabet — unless the Indic numerals were."

My favourite part, however, is this:

"The order of the Tāna alphabet doesn’t follow the order of other Indic scripts or of the Arabic script. There is no apparent logic to the order; this has been interpreted as suggesting that the script was scrambled to keep it secret from average islanders. The script was originally used primarily to write magical (fadinta) incantations. These included Arabic quotations, written from right to left. Maldivian learned men, who were all well versed in sorcery, saw the advantages of writing in this simplified hidden script, and Tāna was gradually adopted for everyday use."

I also happen to think it looks just beautiful: ގަބުޅި ތާނައިގެ އަކުރު ބެހެނީ ބަޔަކަށެވެ.

(The good thing about me having (but not wanting) to work is that I get to read and learn (and in due time forget Confused ) all sorts or really cool things!
